Whilst haploid markers such as mtDNA and Y-DNA can provide clues about past population history, they only represent a single genetic locus, compared to hundreds of thousands present in nuclear, autosomes. Although autosomal analyses often sample a small number of Bulgarians, by multiple autosomes multiple ancestral lines may be traced by an individual's 21 autosomes as opposed to one identical mtDNA or Y-DNA sex chromosome, whose inheritance although clinal, demonstrates genetic drift often in statistics. Analyses of autosomal DNA markers gives the best approximation of overall 'relatedness' between populations, presenting a less skewed genetic picture compared to Y-DNA haplogroups. This auDNA data shows that there are no sharp discontinuities or clusters within the European population. Rather there exists a genetic gradient, running mostly in a southeast to northwest direction. A study compared all Slavic nations and combined all lines of evidence, autosomal , maternal and paternal, including more than people for and at least Bulgarians from previous studies, of which 13 were used for autosomal analysis right image.
In the 19th century the emerging national consciousness in many cases received rational shape through a scientific revolution. Bilmez, A. Puto, D. The term was used to refer to any geographical, religious, class-based or color-based grouping and most frequently to lingusitic and ethnic divisions. Racial categories cannot be explained through a scientific system of classification based on biological methods.
Comments 8 Bulgarian women are cheerful, active, beautiful. They adequately represent the Slavic people at beauty contests. And the most important, beautiful Bulgarians always cause men's admiration: the main judges of effective female appearance.
