Abstract
The effort to decode the human genome has resulted in the development of bo th new markers and analytical techniques of great anthropogenetic interest. These have replaced the so-called classical markers (ABO, Rh, etc.) in rec onstructing the evolutionary history of human populations. Here we review c ritically the era of classical markers and report on the main contributions to date of the new DNA polymorphisms in elucidating the evolutionary histo ry of the Basque population.
