Josyf MychaleckyjDr. Joe Mychaleckyj and his collaborators recently published a paper in Molecular Biology and Evolution in which the researchers detected Native American genomic regions of selection in admixed North-Eastern Brazilians. This paper is the result of a collaboration with investigators at the Federal University of Ceara, Fortaleza, Brazil. Collaborators in CPHG were Dr. Uma Nayak and the Genome Sciences Laboratory (Emily Farber), and in the UVA School of Medicine, Dr. Dick Guerrant, Professor of Infectious Diseases and previous Director of Center for Global Health, and Dr. Relana Pinkerton.
