Barquera et al. analyze individuals from a colonial period burial from Mexico. Using an interdisciplinary approach, they reconstruct the genetic ancestry, origins, and health status of three enslaved Africans. Genomes of pathogens recovered from them provide insight on infectious diseases brought to the Americas by the transatlantic slave trade.
