    Yemen lies at the crossroads between Africa and Eurasia. Genomes of present-day Yemenis were inherited from their progenitors and may attest to the history of the region. Molecules of DNA can, therefore, shed light on how busy this crossroads was during the past millennia. Unfortunately, Yemeni populations have been neglected in genetic literature until recently. However, from the genetic point of view, there are several important questions that cannot be addressed without detailed genetic data. This chapter provides a review of published mitochondrial DNA data from Yemeni populations within the archaeological and paleoclimatological context. Further, the implications for estimations of past migratory events as well as for future prospects are discussed.
