        In this segment from Faces of America, historian Henry Louis Gates, Jr. meets with leading genetic researchers to learn more about what his genome reveals about his health, physical features and life experiences. Through painstaking research, Gates learns that by studying his genome, the researchers accurately predict that he is lactose intolerant, that he will not loose his hair prematurely and that there is no genetic sign of early onset Alzheimer’s disease.
