ChocoGen is a collaborative research project aimed at the discovery and characterization of the genetic heritage of the people of Chocó. The population of Chocó, a state located on the pacific coast of Colombia, has a predominantly African genetic heritage with admixture from Europe and the Americas. The San Pacho festival shown here is a celebration of Afro-Colombian heritage held every year in the capital city of Quibdó. Conley et al. 3435–3448.
