The mitochondrial Eve data, that supports the "out-of-Africa" theory where Eve's decendents, on coming out of Africa, are seen as taking over the whole world and overcoming all the other man types with no sign of interbreeding, only 100,000 years ago. “Mitochondrial Eve” probably lived in Africa about 200,000 years ago and phylogeographic studies allowed to identify the mtDNA haplogroups tree and the mtDNA migration route (see Figure 1). 24-26 DOI: 10.1126/science.3116666 .

However, the Cann, Stoneking, and Wilson article did not mention a mitochondrial or African Eve. L'eve mitochondriale (chaque espece en a une, dont Homo sapiens), est en realite une femelle parmi d'autres existantes qui a passe son mtDNA a d'autres femelles sans le "briser". Mitochondrial Eve.

Through a critical reading of the press coverage of the mitochondrial debate between 1987 and 2000, this article explores an evolving set of cultural emotions, including hope, celebration, suspicion, and anxiety that shaped the idea of human ancestry during the debate. The unmasking of mitochondrial Eve. Mitochondrial Eve and biblical Eve are looking good: criticism of young age is premature.
