9th Human's DNA sequenced. This one died in 2000BCquaith writes ""Inuk" is the ninth human to have their entire genome sequenced but unlike the previous eight, he has been dead for 4,000 years. Inuk had brown eyes and brown skin. His blood type was A+. He was one of the Saqqaq people, one of the first cultures to settle in the frozen north of the New World. From four small tufts of hair and four small pieces of bon, his genome has been sequenced by a large team of scientists from 8 countries. The team used next-generation sequencing technology to sequence 80% of the genome 20 times with the results comparable to a modern human genome in terms of quality."
