MELENDEZ OBANDO, Mauricio O. Importancia de la genealogía aplicada a estudios genéticos en Costa Rica. Rev. biol. trop [online]. 2004, vol.52, n.3, pp.423-450. ISSN 0034-7744.

The importance of genealogy applied to genetic research in Costa Rica. The extensive development of genealogical studies based on archival documents has provided powerful support for genetic research in Costa Rica over the past quarter century. As a result, several questions of population history have been answered, such as those involving hereditary illnesses, suggesting additional avenues and questions as well. Similarly, the preservation of massive amounts of historical documentation highlights the major advantages that the Costa Rican population offers to genetic research. Rev. Biol. Trop. 52(3): 423-450. Epub 2004 Dic 15.
