The 200 college students who provided DNA samples in February 2014 for the New York City Student Ancestry Project led by The City College of New York today learned the results of an analysis of their genetic profile at an event held at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH). The students, from eight institutions in the New York metropolitan area, had their samples analyzed by National Geographic’s Geographic Project.
