Michael F. Hammer, PhD.
"The Peopling of Europe"

Approximately 12,000 years ago most of Europe was covered with ice so humans were forced into refugia in the southern areas. Ancient DNA findings are giving surprising clues to human migrations that led to the re-population of Europe.

Dr. Michael Hammer, PhD, the first geneticist to set up a commercial genetics lab for public testing of DNA for genealogical urposes in the United States. He is a research scientist in the ARL Division of Biotechnology at the University of Arizona with appointments in the Department of Anthropology and the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, as well as the Director of the University of Arizona Genetics Core (UAGC) facility.
