DNA samples from Cornell students will help trace ancestry and migrations


Ithaca Journal
The line snaked through the hallway of Kennedy Hall on the campus of Cornell University. About 200 undergraduate students lined up outside Call Auditorium, down the hall to the vending machines, and back around again. Some used laptops while standing in line, while others read books, listened to iPods or ate dinner.
They were all waiting for one thing: to get their cheek swabbed for DNA to test their deep ancestries.
