ABSTRACT
The article presents a study investigating the impact of modern migrations on present-day multi-ethnic Argentina as recorded on the mitochondrial DNA genome of a sample of 384 individuals representing different Argentinean provinces. The study suggests that studies conducted to compare mtDNA frequency profiles from different Argentinean geographical regions have to take into account the genetic heterogeneity to prevent false positive claims of association in disease studies.
