Genetic Research for Croatia

Continuing to gather scientific research material about DNA origins of the people of the Balkans area, here are the results for Croatia. Published in magazine Nature - link.
"High frequency of haplogroup I in Croatian populations and the phylogeographic pattern in its background STR diversity over Europe make Adriatic coast one likely source of the recolonization of Europe following the Last Glacial Maximum."
This points that Adriatic coast may have been the only shelter from the last Ice Age, from which the colonization spread before the migration of nations from the East.

It is also interesting to see an interview with dr. Dragan Primorac, who participated in the study mentioned in the previous posts: http://www.nacional.hr/clanak/13956/hrvati-su-geneticki-najblizi-njemcima.
