The Year in Genetics

The 23andMe Blog has an interesting article that neatly sums up the DNA developments of the past year. The introduction to the article states:

“The past year in genetics has held no shortage of surprises. Fossilized bone fragments helped to rewrite parts of the Neanderthal story, including how some bands migrated and lived. A team of researchers in Spain learned that doppelgangers have more in common than meets the eye. The phrase “superdodger” officially entered the COVID-19 lexicon. And new analysis confirmed what anyone who’s ever hit a dance floor already knows–the ability to move in time to a beat is partly genetic.

“From big discoveries that moved the field forward to work that improved upon existing findings, here are some of the year’s milestones.”
