May we come from different regions of the planet DNA mitochondria is unaffected by other genetic exchanges.Background  Our genetic mix of our parents. . Mitochondria have own DNA separate with others DNA. each of which contributed half in our genetic.

Aim  To trace back who is the real ancestor of human being. .

are passed only from mother to offspring. .  Mitochondrial Eve is the name given by researchers to the woman who is defined as the matrilineal most recent common ancestor (MRCA) for all currently living humans.Definition  Mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell which contain mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA).

 Male sperm contains only enough mitochondria to power the sperm to the surface of the egg – it does not enter the egg. .Why use mitochondrial  The egg (Fertilization) contains mitochondria that have been passed from mother to daughter for countless generations.

7 daughters of eve (Over the past ten years. North America  Tara: Northen Europe  Helena: Middle East  Velda: france and britian  Jasmine: Western Asia . who lived thousands of years ago. from whom almost everyone in Europe is directly descended through the maternal line  Katrine : south central Europe  Ursula: Northern Greece  Xenia: Asia. scientist’s research has identified just seven women.

.Cases  The genetic survey that produced the whole Mitochondrial Eve scenario didn't just sample Africans and Europeans – it sampled genes from people all over the planet. Fundamental similarities in mitochondrial DNA in living humans suggested that we all contain genetic material from a single woman who was living in Africa around 200. the survey discovered a startling result.000 years ago. When mitochondrial DNA was compared.
