> boars reveals probably migration tracks of humans. The wild boars have
> genetic bases that are pretty well localized. When compared with domestic
> pigs the pigs origin may be determined. There are also studies on other

> The second is on a gene linked to blindness. It has been found that
> variation in the CFH gene is more prominent in those with macular
