They went to Kazarkstan to interview a man who carried a gene form 40,000 yrs ago (if I remembered correctly)!
 
And they also visited the Chukchi(sp?) tribe in north-eastern Siberia in -50 C. Those Chukchi are really incredible people! You must watch the DVD to believe how tough they are!
 
cheers
 
yes I saw this one it was verry intresting I wanted to order the kit but I don't thrust it
I rather be a nomadic barbarian than a sedentary savage

I saw that program on PBS a while ago, it was great.  Except for the humans that migrated to southern India and Australia before they got to Central Asia, everyone else mixed and mingled in Central Asia before going off their seperate ways.  Yea, that was an Uygur man in Kazakistan, they said something like his DNA has not been mixed for 40,000yrs.  So he is the most purest, known, human in the world.  I thought that tribe he visited in Siberia were the Kipchak.  Isn't the Chukchi the Native Americans he visited in Arizona?
For Turks, the homeland isn't Turkey, nor yet Turkistan. Their country is a vast, eternal land: Turan!

isnt that the case with all of us? most human genes (close to 99%) are conserved. Furthermore you, I and about everyone here has almost the same mitochondrial DNA, the same DNA present in humans as early as 200,000 years ago.The only variability comes from a few mutations in the mitochondria that occur in places where it does not matter.

The mitochondrial DNA has been one of the few ways to trace human migrations.

Hi, the kit basically test your genetic ancestry, looking for the migration route your forefathers taken after they left Africa. If you're in the US, it cost US$99, if you're in other parts of the world then its US$129 including shipping.
 
You can then use the results and maybe use this site (http://www.ysearch.org/)to trace for pple with similar genetic codes. It shld be fun to see who is your distance relative.
 
cheers
