  • Classical, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and Y chromosome markers have been used to examine the genetic admixture in present day inhabitants of the Canary Islands. In this study, we report the analysis of ten autosomal Alu insertion polymorphisms in 364 samples from the seven main islands of the Archipelago, and their comparison to continental samples. The detection of population‐specific alleles from the Iberian Peninsula and Northwest Africa, as well as their affinities on the basis of genetic… CONTINUE READING
