Irish DNA map reveals history’s imprint
Scientists have unveiled a detailed genetic map of Ireland, revealing subtle DNA differences that may reflect historic events.
In their sample of the Irish population, the researchers identified 10 genetic groupings – clusters – that roughly mirror ancient boundaries.
The results also suggest the Vikings had a greater impact on the Irish gene pool than previously supposed.
The findings are published in the journal Scientific Reports.
