Shriner D and Keita SOY (2016) Migration Route Out of Africa Unresolved by 225 Egyptian and Ethiopian Whole Genome Sequences.Front. Genet. 7:98. doi: 10.3389/fgene.2016.00098
This paper attempts to address the issue of the OoA event using contemporary Egyptian DNA. The results are useless.The fact that contemporary Egyptians are of predominant Arabian and Caucasian origin reflects the replacement of the ancient Egyptians over the past 1500 years.
There are many ancient mummies. if the authors would have attempted to recover ancient DNA we
might have gained insight into the OoA event, but since the ancient Egyptians have been replaced , a contemporary Egyptian population can not tell us anything about ancient Egyptians DNA and the role ancient Egyptians played in the OoA event.
