Paleolithic Women’s Spirituality and its Relevance to us Today

In this paper, I consider Paleolithic women's spirituality as expressed through various aspects of their artwork found in the caves of Spain and the ‘Venus figurines and suggest these icons may be

Genetic differentiation and population structure of five ethnic groups of Punjab (North-West India)

Uniform allele frequency distribution patterns, high average heterozygosity values, and a small degree of genetic differentiation in this study suggest a genetic proximity among the selected populations.

Africa to Aotearoa: the longest migration

Modern human origins have been securely located in Africa. Human migrations out of Africa began approximately 65,000 years ago and ended with the settlement of Aotearoa/New Zealand only about 750

An investigation into the distribution of human molecular genetic variation in Sub-Saharan Africa

The value of conducting genetic studies in sub-Saharan Africa using large datasets of well known provenance is demonstrated, including the finding that substantial male and female gene flow has occurred among the peoples of the Cross River region of Nigeria, a region that includes multiple ethnic groups speaking distinct languages that appear to have separated hundreds and thousands of years ago.

Departure of human mitochondrial DNA variation from neutral expectations: An alternative explanation

There is a more likely explanation for the rejection of the homozygosity test due to a significant excess of the common rntDNA type, and the existence of a common ~ tDNA type at high frequency in many populations Is an artifact of the low-resolution technique used to assess mtDNA variation.

The origins of southern and western Eurasian populations: an mtDNA study

The current dissertation is based on the following publications referred to in the text by their Roman numbers: I. Abbreviations bp base pair COII cytochrome oxydase subunit II CRS Cambridge



Mitochondrial DNA and human evolution

All these mitochondrial DMAs stem from one woman who is postulated to have lived about 200,000 years ago, probably in Africa, implying that each area was colonised repeatedly.
