Molecular Ecology DOI: 10.1111/j.1365-294X.2011.05361.x Ancient DNA from an Early Neolithic Iberian population supports a pioneer colonization by first farmers C. GAMBA et al.The Neolithic transition has been widely debated particularly regarding the extent to which this revolution implied a demographic expansion from the Near East. We attempted to shed some light on this process in northeastern Iberia by combining ancient DNA (aDNA) data from Early Neolithic settlers and published DNA data from Middle Neolithic and modern samples from the same region.
