Argentineans are mostly a mix of European and Native American

New research shows that Argentineans carry a large fraction of European genetic heritage in their Y-chromosomal (94.1%) and autosomal (78.5%) DNA, but their mitochondrial gene pool is mostly of Native American ancestry (53.7%) while African heritage is small in all three genetic systems (less than 4%).
