                         Saami and Berbers--an unexpected mitochondrial DNA link.

The sequencing of entire human mitochondrial DNAs belonging to haplogroup U reveals
that this clade arose shortly after the "out of Africa" exit and rapidly radiated into
numerous regionally distinct subclades. Intriguingly, the Saami of Scandinavia and the
Berbers of North Africa were found to share an extremely young branch, aged merely
approximately 9,000 years.

This unexpected finding not only confirms that the Franco-Cantabrian refuge area of south-
western Europe was the source of late-glacial expansions of hunter-gatherers that repopu-
lated northern Europe after the Last Glacial Maximum, but also reveals a direct maternal link
between those European hunter-gatherer populations and the Berbers.
