Air pollution and problems with urban commuting are of great concern to people today. European surveys have shown that over six people in ten say that automobile traffic in the city is unbearable.

Now, a study in PNAS journal suggests they descend from early....

À lire: Sur les traces génétiques des premiers Basques
D’où viennent les Basques ? La question intrigue et fascine les chercheurs depuis que les linguistes ont montré que leur langue, l’euskara, n’a aucune parenté avec les langues indo-européennes ni avec aucune autre famille de langue. Les anthropologues cherchent donc à savoir si le peuple basque a une origine différente des autres peuples européens. Les études génétiques menées ces dernières années ont donné des résultats....
