Rebecca Cann, Assistant Professor of Genetics at the University of Hawaii, coauthored a study in 1987 in the journal Nature suggesting that all modern humans are descended from a single mother who lived in Africa about 200,000 BC. The connection, she said, was through the mitochondrial DNA, which passes down through the female.

In a separate review in Nature, Rebecca L. Cann, a molecular biologist at the University of Hawaii, suggested Templeton was "overambitious in the scale of his analysis" and perhaps too eager to contribute to the contentious evolutionary debate.
...
In her rebuttal, Cann said the new model needs to be independently verified, and its conclusions compared with existing evidence on human origins from archeology, linguistics and other scientific disciplines.
"Perhaps we will need a demonstration that GEODIS reveals the composite picture before we can settle on how to interpret the varied signals uncovered by Templeton's analysis on a global scale," she said.

AULIS Online – Different Thinking

"There are regions of the world, like the Middle East and Portugal, where some fossils look as if they could have been some kind of mix between archaic and modern people," said Rebecca Cann, a geneticist at the University of Hawaii.
"The question is," she said, "if there was mixing, did some archaic genetic lineages enter the modern human gene pool?
...
Cann, in an accompanying article in Nature, said Templeton's attempt to view the data from a global perspective is over-ambitious given problems with genetic studies of small-scale modern populations.
"I want to see [his methodology and analysis] validated in an area of the world where a variety of scientists from different disciplines think they understand how humans spread and when," she said.
Examples of human migration that might help demonstrate the validity of Templeton's analysis and its limitations, she suggested, include the relatively recent expansion to Polynesia, the spread of farmers from Turkey into Northern Europe, and the migration of Vikings to Iceland.
"We need lots of different tools to study human evolution," Cann pointed out.
