The session ID is #31 ("Korean Prehistory: Current Multidisciplinary Perspectives").
Single route Asian migration and Koreans by genetic markers
Jong Bhak, Sanghoon Song, YoungAh Shin, and PASNP consortium.
Genomes contain the most definite information on the evolutionary history of humans. Genome sequencing technologies are enabling us to investigate hidden genetic history of modern humans. Discovering new markers for identifying ethnic and individual is essential in genetics based archaeology. We present the pan Asian study of human migration using DNA chips and discuss the future genome technology to refine the genetic diversity and migration of Asian ethnic groups especially East Asians.
