After a brief introduction about present approaches in evolutionary thinking and systems biology, I present a review about the most recent research of our group, with special reference to the genomics of Amerindians. This information was integrated with the present knowledge and concepts in this area. Human microevolutionary approaches are faced with special challenges, and proper interpretation demands the consideration of our unique specificity: culture.
