Phylogenetic relationships of modern humans, Neandertals, and chimps.
Two theories are discussedfor the descendancy of modern humans: the Out Of Africa (OOA) and the Multiregionalism (MRT) theories
Geneticist Mark Stoneking, one of the authors of a controversial 1987 paper on mtDNA, talks about our common female ancestor.
This illustration shows the two major mitochondrial DNA lineages. The lower branch includes only African populations. The upper branch has both African and non-African members.

Evolutionary geneticist Michael Hammer talks about the limitations of Y-chromosome research and the histories of different genes.
Many researchers believe that the common ancestor of apes and humans was built for life in the trees. The major adaptation of the hominid branch of our family tree was bipedalism, the ability to walk on two legs. This ability allowed our ancestors to cove
