Genome fingerprinting by simple sequence repeat (SSR)-anchored polymerase chain reaction amplification.
The utility of microsatellite-directed DNA fingerprinting by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of the interrepeat region provides a novel fingerprinting approach applicable for taxonomic and phylogenetic comparisons and as a mapping tool in a wide range of organisms.
The Simons Genome Diversity Project: 300 genomes from 142 diverse populations
It is demonstrated that indigenous Australians, New Guineans and Andamanese do not derive substantial ancestry from an early dispersal of modern humans; instead, their modern human ancestry is consistent with coming from the same source as that of other non-Africans.
Reconstructing Native American Population History
It is shown that the initial peopling followed a southward expansion facilitated by the coast, with sequential population splits and little gene flow after divergence, especially in South America.
Genetic Variation and Population Structure in Native Americans
Evidence is observed of a higher level of diversity and lower level of population structure in western South America compared to eastern South America, a relative lack of differentiation between Mesoamerican and Andean populations, and a partial agreement on a local scale between genetic similarity and the linguistic classification of populations.
Mutability of Y-chromosomal microsatellites: rates, characteristics, molecular bases, and forensic implications.
CORE-SINEs: eukaryotic short interspersed retroposing elements with common sequence motifs.
It is proposed that the core identifies an ancient tRNA-like SINE element, which survived in different lineages such as mammals, reptiles, birds, and fish, as well as mollusks, presumably for >550 million years.
Global diversity, population stratification, and selection of human copy-number variation
The selective constraints of deletions versus duplications were compared to understand population stratification in the context of the ancestral human genome and to assess differences in CNV load between African and non-African populations.
Standardized nomenclature for Alu repeats
This paper presents a probabilistic analysis of the H2O2 gene that was constructed at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory during the 1990s as well as a comparison study conducted at the University of California at Davis in 2011.
Ubiquitous mammalian-wide interspersed repeats (MIRs) are molecular fossils from the mesozoic era
An ancient family of repeats, whose sequence divergence and common occurrence among placental mammals, marsupials and monotremes indicate their amplification during the Mesozoic era is presented.
The Genomic History of Southeastern Europe
It is shown that southeastern Europe continued to be a nexus between east and west after the arrival of farmers, with intermittent genetic contact with steppe populations occurring up to 2,000 years earlier than the migrations from the steppe that ultimately replaced much of the population of northern Europe.
