I was watching a tv program tonight on Britain BC, one of the subjects touched on was DNA. Apparently mitocondrial DNA (inherited from mother only) was originaly a bacteria which found it's way into our DNA and has been there ever since and passed down from mother to child. This got me thinking about the genetic manipulation of the human species and whether this could have been part of the process. Anyone else thought along these lines?
