A High-Coverage Genome Sequence from an Archaic Denisovan Individual
Ancient Genomics The Denisovans were archaic humans closely related to Neandertals, whose populations overlapped with the ancestors of modern-day humans. Using a single-stranded library preparationExpand

Sensitive Detection of Chromosomal Segments of Distinct Ancestry in Admixed Populations
Identifying the ancestry of chromosomal segments of distinct ancestry has a wide range of applications from disease mapping to learning about history. Most methods require the use of unlinkedExpand

The Simons Genome Diversity Project: 300 genomes from 142 diverse populations
Here we report the Simons Genome Diversity Project data set: high quality genomes from 300 individuals from 142 diverse populations. These genomes include at least 5.8 million base pairs that are notExpand

Reconstructing Native American Population History
The peopling of the Americas has been the subject of extensive genetic, archaeological and linguistic research; however, central questions remain unresolved. One contentious issue is whether theExpand

The complete genome sequence of a Neandertal from the Altai Mountains
We present a high-quality genome sequence of a Neanderthal woman from Siberia. We show that her parents were related at the level of half-siblings and that mating among close relatives was commonExpand

MYH9 is associated with nondiabetic end-stage renal disease in African Americans
As end-stage renal disease (ESRD) has a four times higher incidence in African Americans compared to European Americans, we hypothesized that susceptibility alleles for ESRD have a higher frequencyExpand

Admixture mapping identifies 8q24 as a prostate cancer risk locus in African-American men
A whole-genome admixture scan in 1,597 African Americans identified a 3.8 Mb interval on chromosome 8q24 as significantly associated with susceptibility to prostate cancer [logarithm of odds (LOD) =Expand

Multiple regions within 8q24 independently affect risk for prostate cancer
After the recent discovery that common genetic variation in 8q24 influences inherited risk of prostate cancer, we genotyped 2,973 SNPs in up to 7,518 men with and without prostate cancer from fiveExpand

The landscape of recombination in African Americans
Recombination, together with mutation, gives rise to genetic variation in populations. Here we leverage the recent mixture of people of African and European ancestry in the Americas to build aExpand
