The surprising origins of the Tarim Basin mummies

The surprising origins of the Tarim Basin mummies

Prof. Choongwon Jeong
Professor Choongwon Jeong’s research team in College of Biological Sciences collaborated with an international joint research team to study the genomes of the mummies found in the Tarim Basin of China. After comparing these genomes with the genome of neighboring regions’ mummies, they first discovered the fact that these mummies were pure natives, genetically independent from the immigrants from other regions.
