"Conversely, the Corsican sample had elevated
levels of alternative haplotypes common in Northern Italy."

"The frequencies observed in the Corsican population seem to converge toward those detected in continental Italy, as shown by the Fst probability value that does not reach the significance level (Table 3). This may be due to other distinctive gene flows that overlaid a previous genetic heritage shared with Sardinia. This result is consistent with linguistic data showing that the Corsican language is more closely related to Tuscan than to the Sardinian language (Grimes, 1996). The pattern of affinity is also
supported by mtDNA RFLP data (Morelli et al., 2000), but not by pairwise difference analysis (Varesi et al., 2000).

"Regarding Corsica, the M173 haplotype approaches
60%, while the various 12f2, M35, M172, and M201
haplotypes represent about 30% of the variation.
These results are similar to those observed in central-
northern Italy."

Siete Italiani :)
