Team of the Department of Biochemistry and Immunology (DBI), Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG), will collect buccal cell DNA with a thousand people of different nationalities, which pass through the exhibition of the Brazilian Innovation 14a, in the space of Brazil Heart in London during the Olympics. The material, which will be analyzed in Brazil, the Center for Medical Genetics (Gene), part of the project "We R In Race" (We do not breed), which GM intends to demonstrate the existence of only one race.

The forecast is that the studies begin to be released from November this year. For the professor and head of the DBI Genomics Laboratory, School of Medicine, Sergio Danilo Pena, will be possible to model "a humanity composed of seven billion unique individuals and unique in its genome and its life history," he explains.

As the researcher, each participant must sign a permission at the time of sale, allowing the genetic study, which will be done anonymously. Will be informed only the country of birth of the person and their grandparents and collected DNA swabs in two (cottons with genetic material). "At the time of collection, the individual will receive a T-shirt campaign and a code that will allow you to identify the results of his studies of genetic ancestry in a web site from November 1, 2012," he said.

Sergio Danilo Pena explains that one of the swabs have the DNA extracted for analysis of the human genome and to calculate their proportions of European ancestry, African and Asian, and calculating the genetic variance among continents, countries from the same continent and within each the country. "The other swab will be kept frozen and used as controls in future studies of more complex genetic ancestry."

Also according to the scientist, the expectation is that research is expanded in the 2014 World Cup and Olympic Games in 2016, both in Brazil.

Mais uma vez Dr.Sérgio Pena nos orgulha por seus trabalhos. Será bem interessante qualquer que seja seu resultado por este trabalho.Orgulho de poder, quem sabe um dia, ter aula/trabalhar com ele. ^^
