The African Genome Project is co-sponsored by the African African-American Foundation, whose mission is to re-establish the connections between African-Americans and their African heritages. The Project will collect DNA from various African ethnic groups whose ancestors are known to have also contributed to the ancestries of African-Americans. The Project will create the most extensive set of African DNA markers in existence relevant to African-American populations. This dataset will increase the historical and scientific accuracy of DNA analysis for use in genealogical and other reconstructions for African-Americans and related populations.
