Hunter-gatherer genomic diversity suggests a southern African origin for modern humans

"We find that African hunter-gatherer populations today remain highly differentiated, encompassing major components of variation that are not found in other African populations. Hunter-gatherer populations also tend to have the lowest levels of genome-wide linkage disequilibrium among 27 African populations." Based on data for more than 580,000 SNPs.
