In human genetics, the matrilineal most recent common ancestor of all currently living humans, i.e., the most recent woman from whom all living humans descend in an unbroken line purely through their mothers, and through the mothers of those mothers, has been traced back until all lines converge on one woman, Mitochondrial Eve. We are all connected. We all come from one mother.
