Ancient DNA....   posted by Razib @ 7/15/2005 10:18:00 PM

Dienekes links to two recent papers, one indicates that a pre-Mongoloid substrate existed in Thailand ~30,000 years B.P. through inspection of fossil morphology, while extracted mtDNA shows similarities to the non-Malay Semang peoples of the interior of Malaysia, another article confirms the ancient status of many Native American lineages through comparison with a 10,300 sequence of mtDNA.
