Origin doesn't matter.
More important where we're going...

And when you come to Cyprus and meet real Cypriots you think that you are like us? I can spot somebody like you very easily ;)

Hey all,
I have been in contact with Professor Erol Baysal a Turkish Cypriot geneticist, and he has informed me that I was right in initially thinking the Cypriots are a homogenous population in the sense that they share the same varied mix of genes from many different colonizers. He has also stated he never implicated a Middle Eastern genetic origin of Cypriots. Middle Eastern genes were not known at the time of their publication and they now know that they are not similar to Cypriots in types, incidence and haplotype. Additionally the DNA studies based on thalassemic genes show Greek and Turkish speaking Cypriots are almost identical genetically. This implication has now finally put to bed the notion of Cypriots being the original Neolithic Syrian agriculturalists from 10,000BC, and I firmly and permanently withdraw this theory – however the fact that Neolithic Syrian farmers from 10,000BC may be a genetic component equally just as all the other colonizers to the island could still be true, yet not as the highest unique genetic lineage overall at all. I simply cannot go against DNA and genetic based research, this is fact. I have now permanently taken down the video on youtube.

Many thanks and happy new year

listen my friend if you are telling me that my tc friends have the same genes as kserodjehalogurbedroshillogurui and maximosstupido and prioplastikui and kiminesikimene i think they will be most dissapointed. this cant be right. tell our friend to re examine these peoples genes becasue they cant be cypriot then.

ohps i forgot to mention oracle i mean gig, please sheck her out too. i am convinced she is no cypriot.

Find the DNA in a Banana


Introduction

What do you have in common with a banana?

Even though we civilised Greeks and you apish Turks might not look alike, all living things — bananas and people included — are made up of the same basic material. Aaahh! :D

Just like houses are made up of smaller units such as bricks, all living things are made up trillions of microscopic building blocks called cells. Within an organism, each cell contains a complete set of "blueprints". These directions determine the organism's characteristics.

Just like us, banana plants have genes and DNA in their cells, and just like us, their DNA determines their traits.
