In a major breakthrough, US researchers have found a genetic cause - a single DNA base pair change that dates back 8,000 years - that contributes to the Tibetans` ability to live in low-oxygen conditions.

Researchers have suggested that genetic adaptations for life at high elevations found in residents of the Tibetan plateau likely originated around 30,000 years ago in peoples related to contemporary Sherpa.
