Y-chromosomal diversity in Europe is clinal and influenced primarily by geography, rather than by language.
Clinal patterns of autosomal genetic diversity within Europe have been interpreted in previous studies in terms of a Neolithic demic diffusion model for the spread of agriculture; in contrast,Expand

Genetic relationships of Asians and Northern Europeans, revealed by Y-chromosomal DNA analysis.
We have identified a new T-->C transition on the human Y chromosome. C-allele chromosomes have been found only in a subset of the populations from Asia and northern Europe and reach their highestExpand

The phylogeography of Brazilian Y-chromosome lineages.
We examined DNA polymorphisms in the nonrecombining portion of the Y-chromosome to investigate the contribution of distinct patrilineages to the present-day white Brazilian population. TwelveExpand

Phylogeography of Xiphorhynchus fuscus (Passeriformes, Dendrocolaptidae): vicariance and recent demographic expansion in southern Atlantic forest
Knowledge of the evolutionary processes that shaped a biota is important for both academic and conservation purposes. The objective of the present study is to analyse the mitochondrial geneticExpand

Genetic differentiation in South Amerindians is related to environmental and cultural diversity: evidence from the Y chromosome.
The geographic structure of Y-chromosome variability has been analyzed in native populations of South America, through use of the high-frequency Native American haplogroup defined by the DYS199-TExpand

Exploring the Diversity and Distribution of Neotropical Avian Malaria Parasites – A Molecular Survey from Southeast Brazil
Southeast Brazil is a neotropical region composed of a mosaic of different tropical habitats and mountain chains, which allowed for the formation of bird-rich communities with distinct ecologicalExpand

The central Siberian origin for native American Y chromosomes.
Y chromosomal DNA polymorphisms were used to investigate Pleistocene male migrations to the American continent. In a worldwide sample of 306 men, we obtained 32 haplotypes constructed with theExpand

Genetic and population study of a Y-linked tetranucleotide repeat DNA polymorphism with a simple non-isotopic technique
A polymorphic microsatellite (Y-27H39) based on a (GATA)n repeat was recently discovered on the short arm of the human Y chromosome. We have used a simple technique based on polymerase chain reactionExpand

Variation in short tandem repeats is deeply structured by genetic background on the human Y chromosome.
Eleven biallelic polymorphisms and seven short-tandem-repeat (STR) loci mapping on the nonrecombining portion of the human Y chromosome have been typed in men from northwestern Africa. Analysis ofExpand
