Living Descendants of Biblical Canaanites Identified
Genome sequenced from 3,700-year-old remains is found in today's residents
of Lebanon.

Several of the Canaanite individuals sampled in the study had been buried in large clay jars. 
More than 90 percent of the genetic ancestry of modern Lebanese is derived from ancient Canaanites, according to a paper published today in the American Journal of Human Genetics.
Researchers supported by The Wellcome Trust were able to sequence the Canaanite genome from the remains of five individuals buried in the ancient port city of Sidon (modern Saïda, Lebanon) around 3,700 years ago. The results were compared against the DNA of 99 modern-day Lebanese residents./.../
