Deep divergences of human gene trees and models of human origins

Article English OPEN
Blum , Michael ; Jakobsson , Mattias (2010)

International audience; Two competing hypotheses are at the forefront of the debate on modern human origins. In the first scenario, known as the recent Out-of-Africa hypothesis, modern humans arose in Africa about 100,000-200,000 years ago, and spread throughout the wor... View more
