The genetic legacy of Paleolithic Homo sapiens sapiens in extant Europeans: a Y chromosome perspective.
A genetic perspective of human history in Europe was derived from 22 binary markers of the nonrecombining Y chromosome (NRY). Ten lineages account for >95% of the 1007 European Y chromosomes studied.Expand

Phylogeography of Y-chromosome haplogroup I reveals distinct domains of prehistoric gene flow in europe.
To investigate which aspects of contemporary human Y-chromosome variation in Europe are characteristic of primary colonization, late-glacial expansions from refuge areas, Neolithic dispersals, orExpand

A recent bottleneck of Y chromosome diversity coincides with a global change in culture.
It is commonly thought that human genetic diversity in non-African populations was shaped primarily by an out-of-Africa dispersal 50-100 thousand yr ago (kya). Here, we present a study of 456Expand

Genomic analyses inform on migration events during the peopling of Eurasia
High-coverage whole-genome sequence studies have so far focused on a limited number of geographically restricted populations, or been targeted at specific diseases, such as cancer. Nevertheless, theExpand

Tracking COL1A1 RNA in osteogenesis imperfecta. splice-defective transcripts initiate transport from the gene but are retained within the SC35 domain.
This study illuminates the intra-nuclear fate of COL1A1 RNA in osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) Type I. Patient fibroblasts were shown to carry a heterozygous defect in splicing of intron 26, blockingExpand

Y-chromosomal evidence of the cultural diffusion of agriculture in southeast Europe
The debate concerning the mechanisms underlying the prehistoric spread of farming to Southeast Europe is framed around the opposing roles of population movement and cultural diffusion. To investigateExpand

Separating the post-Glacial coancestry of European and Asian Y chromosomes within haplogroup R1a
Human Y-chromosome haplogroup structure is largely circumscribed by continental boundaries. One notable exception to this general pattern is the young haplogroup R1a that exhibits post-GlacialExpand

DNA typing from skeletal remains: evaluation of multiplex and megaplex STR systems on DNA isolated from bone and teeth samples.
AIM To evaluate the performance of three multiplex short tandem repeat (STR) systems (AmpflSTR Profiler, AmpflSTR Profiler Plus, and AmpflSTR COfiler), and a megaplex STR system (PowerPlex 16) on DNAExpand

Toward Male Individualization with Rapidly Mutating Y-Chromosomal Short Tandem Repeats
Relevant for various areas of human genetics, Y‐chromosomal short tandem repeats (Y‐STRs) are commonly used for testing close paternal relationships among individuals and populations, and for maleExpand
