The evolutionary histories and relationships among African, Eurasian, and Pacific Island populations are investigated by using observations on five polymorphic restriction sites in the beta-globin gene cluster. We present new data on 222 chromosomes from a global sample and combine these with previously published observations on 591 chromosomes. It is shown that the data are rich in rare haplotypes and that rare variants are not helpful for standard methods of population structure analysis… CONTINUE READING
