  • An investigation indicates that the remains of human beings who lived in Siberia are genetically related to the first inhabitants of the American continent.
  • The study published in the journal Nature indicates that the DNA of 2 milk teeth found in Siberia coincides with the genome of the indigenous peoples of America.
  • Like previous hypothesis, the article suggests that the ancestors of the first inhabitants of America crossed the Bering Strait during the ice age.
  • This is the first study that supports this hypothesis with genetic data of the possible ancestors of the populations of America.
