Human genetic patterns wouldn't be as old as we think

A human genome analysis suggests that the patterns by which human diversity is governed can be explained by recent events, so that They would not be as old as until recently it was thought. The study has been able to explain how population movements have occurred within the Netherlands over the last 2000 years.

After analyzing more than 400,000 genetic variations belonging to about 1,000 people in the Netherlands shows a division of the Dutch population into four groups: south, north, center-west and center-north.

The results explain the movement of human beings during the Paleolithic and Neolithic, conforming to a model that shows the movement of the last 70 generations of the Dutch population.

Here we leave you the link to study.

I was born in Madrid on August 27, 1988 and since then I started a work of which there is no example. Fascinated by both numbers and letters and a lover of the unknown, that is why I am a future graduate in Economics and Journalism, interested in understanding life and the forces that have shaped it. Everything is easier, more useful and more exciting if, with a look at our past, we can improve our future and for that… History.
