SKOPJE -- A six-year long DNA research of the Balkan peoples conducted by Skopje Forensics Medicine Institute has showed remarkable resemblance among them.
The Macedonian scientists received samples and data from most
of the Balkan countries, except from Greece, who refused to take part
in the project. All the other countries sent DNA analyses of the victims
who had died in their territory to Skopje.
“By using sophisticated computer technology we have compared the data from Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia and Kosovo,” Jakovski explained.
The research has been published in the leading world forensics magazines and the results will be used in criminal investigations in cases when victims are from the Balkans.
Jakovski pointed out that the research represented a very useful scientific work and that it had nothing to do with daily politics.
