    Iceman's DNA reveals health risks and relations

    Ötzi’s genome hints at heart disease, bacterial infection and common ancestry with modern-day Sardinians.


    The world’s most famous frozen corpse has had his genome sequenced. An international team has today published the almost complete DNA sequence of Ötzi the Tyrolean Iceman in Nature Communications1, and has found clues as to the whereabouts of his closest living relations.

    Hikers discovered Ötzi’s 5,300-year-old body in the Alps near the Italian–Austrian border in 1991. It was well preserved, and has become one of the most studied cadavers in science. Researchers have already discovered that Ötzi suffered from hardened arteries and tooth cavities, bore tattoos and gorged on ibex before dying with an arrow lodged in his back — but there is still more information to be gained from his body.

    Otzi the Iceman: Researchers validate the stability of genetic markers

    Biomarkers are biological attributes that can give doctors or researchers clues about the health status or illnesses of a patient. Scientists are placing great hope in a new type of biomarker, so-called microRNAs. These short ribonucleic acid molecules are notable for their very high level of stability. Researchers at Saarland University, the University of Luxembourg and the Eurac Research center in Bozen have now established that such microRNAs can remain stable even after 5,300 years.
