Researchers sequenced mitochondrial and/or nuclear genomes for dozens of wild and domestic ancient goats to explore domestication and selection patterns.
Using data from 1,000 Irish individuals, a Trinity College Dublin-led team uncovered nearly two dozen discrete genetic clusters.
Living DNA and its partners are aiming to create a detailed genetic map of the world based on people's DNA.
The transition from hunter-gatherer to agricultural lifestyles seems to have spread to the Baltics without massive migration from Anatolia or the Levant.
