• The genes of 200 Greenlandic Inuits had ancient DNA from both Denisovans and Neanderthals, according to Mail Online . (i4u.com)
  • Now a new study published in Science shows that such adaptation has led to genetic mutations in Greenlandic Inuits that help them counteract the bad effects of their high-fat diet, based heavily on fish and marine mammals. (ox.ac.uk)
  • The team specifically looked at genetic markers previously found to be associated with heart disease and metabolic disorders and identified a cluster of genes that had undergone a lot of changes in Greenlandic Inuits compared to the two other populations. (ox.ac.uk)
  • To gain further understanding of how the identified genes relate to the overall health of the Inuits, the researchers took advantage of Greenlandic cohorts with extensive clinical information collected as part of a general population health survey. (ox.ac.uk)
  • Daily life of Inuits is changing rapidly due to the climate change and being able to capture and communicate this change is my main vision. (yahoo.com)
  • And some of the biggest beneficiaries are Arctic Inuits and others living in some of the world's coldest places, according to a recent study . (theweek.com)
  • To test this, the researchers looked at genomic data from 200 Greenlandic Inuits and compared particular genes with Denisovan data. (theweek.com)
  • Thirty years ago, researchers began to study why the native Inuits of Alaska were remarkably free of heart disease. (aarp.org)
