Convergent adaptation of human lactase persistence in Africa and Europe
A SNP in the gene encoding lactase (LCT) (C/T-13910) is associated with the ability to digest milk as adults (lactase persistence) in Europeans, but the genetic basis of lactase persistence inExpand

The collective-risk social dilemma and the prevention of simulated dangerous climate change
Will a group of people reach a collective target through individual contributions when everyone suffers individually if the target is missed? This “collective-risk social dilemma” exists in variousExpand

History of click-speaking populations of Africa inferred from mtDNA and Y chromosome genetic variation.
Little is known about the history of click-speaking populations in Africa. Prior genetic studies revealed that the click-speaking Hadza of eastern Africa are as distantly related to click speakers ofExpand

Whole-mtDNA genome sequence analysis of ancient African lineages.
Studies of human mitochondrial (mt) DNA genomes demonstrate that the root of the human phylogenetic tree occurs in Africa. Although 2 mtDNA lineages with an African origin (haplogroups M and N) wereExpand

The Genetic Structure of Pacific Islanders
Human genetic diversity in the Pacific has not been adequately sampled, particularly in Melanesia. As a result, population relationships there have been open to debate. A genome scan of autosomalExpand

African human diversity, origins and migrations.
The continent of Africa is thought to be the site of origin of all modern humans and is the more recent origin of millions of African Americans. Although Africa has the highest levels of humanExpand

Genome-wide variation in the human and fruitfly: a comparison.
Average levels of nucleotide diversity are ten-fold lower in humans than in the fruitfly, Drosophila melanogaster. Despite this difference, apparently as a result of a lower population size, patternsExpand
