Origins and Genetic Legacy of Neolithic Farmers and Hunter-Gatherers in Europe
The results suggest that migration from southern Europe catalyzed the spread of agriculture and that admixture in the wake of this expansion eventually shaped the genomic landscape of modern-day Europe.
Genomic evidence for the Pleistocene and recent population history of Native Americans
The results suggest that there has been gene flow between some Native Americans from both North and South America and groups related to East Asians and Australo-Melanesians, the latter possibly through an East Asian route that might have included ancestors of modern Aleutian Islanders.
Genomic Diversity and Admixture Differs for Stone-Age Scandinavian Foragers and Farmers
Hunters and Farmers The Neolithic period in Europe saw the transition from a hunter-gatherer lifestyle to farming. Previous genetic analyses have suggested that hunter-gatherers were replaced by…
Ancient DNA Reveals Lack of Continuity between Neolithic Hunter-Gatherers and Contemporary Scandinavians
The genetic prehistory of the New World Arctic
The long-term genetic continuity of the Paleo-Eskimos gene pool and lack of evidence of Native American admixture suggest that the Saqqaq and Dorset people were largely living in genetic isolation after entering the New World.
High frequency of lactose intolerance in a prehistoric hunter-gatherer population in northern Europe
The frequency of an allele (-13910*T) associated with lactase persistence in a Neolithic Scandinavian population is investigated and it is found that the T allele frequency was very low (5%) in this Middle Neolithic hunter-gatherer population, and that the frequency is dramatically different from the extant Swedish population.

The impact of prehistoric (Neolithic–Bronze Age) migrations in Iberia is studied by analyzing genomic and dietary data, demonstrating that farming practices were introduced by a population genetically distinct from the first farmers in central and northern Europe.
Long-term genetic stability and a high-altitude East Asian origin for the peoples of the high valleys of the Himalayan arc

It is demonstrated that the Himalayan arc was colonized by East Asians of likely high-altitude origin, followed by millennia of genetic continuity despite marked changes in material culture and mortuary behavior, and the region is characterized by long-term stability of the population genetic make-up despite marking changes inMaterial culture.
Population genomics of Mesolithic Scandinavia: Investigating early postglacial migration routes and high-latitude adaptation
The authors' results suggest two different early postglacial migrations into Scandinavia: initially from the south, and later, from the northeast, which followed the ice-free Norwegian north Atlantic coast, along which novel and advanced pressure-blade stone-tool techniques may have spread.
Southern African ancient genomes estimate modern human divergence to 350,000 to 260,000 years ago
The first modern human population divergence time is estimated to be between 350,000 and 260,000 years ago, which increases the deepest divergence among modern humans, coinciding with anatomical developments of archaic humans intomodern humans, as represented in the local fossil record.
