Genome fingerprinting by simple sequence repeat (SSR)-anchored polymerase chain reaction amplification.
Simple sequence repeats (SSR), or microsatellites, are ubiquitous in eukaryotic genomes. Here we demonstrate the utility of microsatellite-directed DNA fingerprinting by polymerase chain reactionExpand

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

Genetic Variation and Population Structure in Native Americans
We examined genetic diversity and population structure in the American landmass using 678 autosomal microsatellite markers genotyped in 422 individuals representing 24 Native American populationsExpand

Mutability of Y-chromosomal microsatellites: rates, characteristics, molecular bases, and forensic implications.
Nonrecombining Y-chromosomal microsatellites (Y-STRs) are widely used to infer population histories, discover genealogical relationships, and identify males for criminal justice purposes. Although aExpand

A 65-bp "core" sequence is dispersed in hundreds of thousands copies in the human genome. This sequence was found to constitute the central segment of a group of short interspersed elements (SINEs),Expand

Ubiquitous mammalian-wide interspersed repeats (MIRs) are molecular fossils from the mesozoic era
We present an ancient family of repeats, whose sequence divergence and common occurrence among placental mammals, marsupials and monotremes indicate their amplification during the Mesozoic era. Expand

Admixture dynamics in Hispanics: a shift in the nuclear genetic ancestry of a South American population isolate.
Although it is well established that Hispanics generally have a mixed Native American, African, and European ancestry, the dynamics of admixture at the foundation of Hispanic populations isExpand

Global diversity, population stratification, and selection of human copy-number variation
Duplications and deletions in the human genome Duplications and deletions can lead to variation in copy number for genes and genomic loci among humans. Such variants can reveal evolutionary patternsExpand

Susceptibility to childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia: influence of CYP1A1, CYP2D6, GSTM1, and GSTT1 genetic polymorphisms.
Although acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common childhood cancer, factors governing susceptibility to this disease have not yet been identified. As such, ALL offers a usefulExpand
