The scientists from the IHMC have taken part in an international collaborative work which has resulted in a significant discovery in the history of domestication of horses made by analysis of the genome of modern and fossil horses from archeological digs in various regions of steppe zone of Eurasia. It has been ascertained that the domestic horses appeared about 5500 years ago at the territory of modern North Kazakhstan. The horse has been domesticated by the representatives of so-called Botai culture. The researchers have determined that genetic lines of Botai horses are presented in the genome of Przhevalsky horse which, consequently, are feral descendants of domestic Botai horses.
