Sounds like these scientists found gold per this fascinating read on pathbreaking work on the Mexican genome. The Mexico Biobank (MXB) is an exciting development for geneticists as, according to Nature, this is "the most diverse collection of genetic information in the Global South." Also,
"The results of these genetics studies will also have takeaways for people of Mexican descent in other countries. “The population genomics of Latin America is also the genomics of the United States.”
For the record, "Mexican" is a Nahuatl term that comes into existence with the emergence of the nation state, upon the winning of independence from Spain in 1821. "Mexico" gets its name from the Nahuatl-speaking "Mexica" who are otherwise known as "Aztecs" still today.
The MXB holds much promise for improving health care for people on the continent, as well as connecting Mexicans, Mexican Americans, and the Indigenous peoples of Mexico, the U.S. and beyond to a genetically diverse past.
