Study Description

The transatlantic slave trade was the largest forced migration in world history. However, the African origins of the enslaved Africans and their admixture dynamics following their arrival in the Americas remain unclear. To investigate the demographic history of African-descendant populations in South America, we generated genome-wide data for 107 individuals from three African-descendant populations in South America, as well as 122 individuals from six West African populations to complement the African dataset. The new findings provide new insight into the slave trade.
