Hello everyone,

A few years ago I remember hearing about a study (out of California I
think) in which the researchers determined (with reasonable confidence)
that all modern Homo sapiens have one common maternal ancestor. This was
based on a genetic study. Does anyone know the authors or title of any
publications on this study? Did the researchers estimate when this "Eve"
lived and does anyone know of a similar genetic study performed for male

Thanks in advance
