Good, why don't you then explain to the rest of the group in layman's terms the relevant aspects of the analysis of mtDNA when applied to prehistoric ethnic identity, population movements, and resource management, along with its possible implications in current anthropological understanding of homo sapien sapien chronology?

I mean, since you know so much about the study of the human genome and all....

I think that anyone that opposes the views of the intolerant, right wing extremist, fascist, racist, ignorant minority of this country should be denied and stripped from their freedom of speech, and be banned from this and other forums.

Like I said, I know a thing or two about the subject, I would like to clarify to
you and "the group" that tha vast majority of mithcondrial dna is actually
expressed and duplicated in the nucleus, a small amount of sequences in the mithocondria mostly of membrane proteins are exclusively replicated in the mithocondria, these are the genes in question, they may be then traced in subsequent generations strictly from maternal markers (therefore Eve), as populations migrated from sub-saharan eastern africa, towards north-eastern
africa, the relative strength of these markers began establishing a pattern of migration that ultimately took these populations to Europe on one hand, and others towards the arabic penninsula-persia-indian sub continent- south east asia and so on.
As we evaluate the relative presence of these markers in different geographical areas a potential point of origin can be established, leading to the above pattern of migration.
This is a summary that I'm sure is more palatable for the layman than just
transcribing information from the scientific literature.

1. Funny you should mention transcribing information from scientific literature because when I googled entire sentences from your post, after I corrected your spelling of mitochondrial that is, they hit a variety of scholarly articles--several which seemingly had entire sentences in common with your post--without citation, I might add. Where I come from, we call that plagiarism. (I spent a semester as a T.A. for my English Comp professor. He had me checking essays for "unintentional copyright violations" during final exams week. I was pretty good at it...)

2. That scholarly hoo-hoo you "picked up" didn't even begin to answer the questions that I asked, but nice try at dancing around it all.

3. I seriously doubt that a person who continually mispells "mitochondrial" as "mithochondria" has any real clue about its importance to the study of anthropology. Mithocondria are small cellular organs which contain numbers of enzymes by means of which oxidations are produced in the cell. They are not DNA fragments.

I have to get back to studying for my Plains Prehistory exam tomorrow. Have fun with your pseudo-intellectual rantings.

Face it: osomd1; few here take you seriously

Besides; your anti 'White' rhetoric is pathetic to say the least------us White folks run the gamut from dark brown to almost porcelain white in skin tone.

I'm assuming the intolerant, right wing extremists, fascist, racist, ignorant minority you speak of is those of us on this forum who are against illegal immigration, and YOU are the one who opposes our views, then I agree 100% with your statement. Do you even proof read what you write before you post it genius???
