Ethiopians and Tibetans thrive in thin air using similar physiology, but different genes
(ScienceDaily) Scientists have pinpointed genetic changes that allow some Ethiopians to live more than a mile above sea level without getting altitude sickness, but these differ from those that allow Tibetans to live in low-oxygen environments.
Researchers identify genetic adaptation for high altitudes
(Nature World News) Reports on research to identify the genetic factors that allow people to adapt to high altitude and low-oxygen environments.
Altitude.org focuses on educating the public in the fields of high altitude medicine and physiology. It contains a wealth of information on high altitudes and altitude sickness, including such features as calculators of blood oxygen levels.
Google - Research database allows searching of the scholarly literature.
