I am not good at biology and genetics so I need your help about something I've read. In the article it is said that using the genetic code information and the mithocondrial DNA, which i specific for females and males, it is concluded that the first female (EVE) has lived 143.000 years ago in Africa and the first male (ADAM) has lived 59.000 years ago in Africa too. According to this article it is said that Eve's husband was somebody else, which had some other genetic code and the resulting genetic code we have today is some kind of mix. If you have some explanation (or links) about how this is concluded and how scientists look at this hypothesis it would be very kind of you if you post it here. Thank you in advance!
