BIOMICs Group analyzes Basque diaspora DNA
Date:12/28/2010

ndertaken: "The calculation for mitochondrial DNA indicates that there is a component of over 50 % of Basque origin, and that other lineages have intervened later fundamentally of a Caucasoid nature, and a not very high percentage of Hispanic population. We found practically no mixture with the Negroid population. As regards the Y chromosome, the data are similar".

Even the whalers

Now that they know to what point the genetic heritage of the Basques has been maintained, Ms M. de Pancorbo states that "we are now beginning to carry out studies regarding obesity and we also wish to investigate other, related illnesses". Not only this: they are preparing an expedition to take place within the next two years, to take this study further abroad, concretely to the highest latitudes of North America and to earlier times when the Basque whalers first appeared. "Here the surnames have not been kept, but the Y chromosome enables us to follow the trail of the Basques, the Y chromosome of the Native American Indians being different. We want to see what percentage there is of certain genes, what percentage of others and how this is correlated with the state of health and illnesses of the Native American peoples who had relations with our population", explained the Director of BIOMICs.
