The morphology of the first humans in the Americas (Paleoamericans) differs from that of Native Americans, and has raised the question of whether or not there are also differences in origin or genetics. A few populations who survived until relatively recently have been suggested to retain Paleoamerican morphology. One of these populations is from La Jolla. Here, we have generated genome sequence data from four La Jolla individuals in order to investigate these questions This data is part of a pre-publication release.
