“Mitochondrial Eve”

31/03/2018 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PDT

Abstract

Variations in the sequence of mitochondrial DNA can be used to identify human lineages and mark human migration patterns.  In 1987, mtDNA samples from 147 women were compared and used to infer the sequence and origin of the mitochondria of the common ancestor of all humans.  The popular press and science writers were quick to name this common ancestor “Mitochondrial Eve.” What has the continued study of human mitochondrial sequences told us about our origin and history?
