Denisova admixture and the first modern human dispersals into Southeast Asia and Oceania.
It has recently been shown that ancestors of New Guineans and Bougainville Islanders have inherited a proportion of their ancestry from Denisovans, an archaic hominin group from Siberia. However,Expand

A genomic history of Aboriginal Australia
The population history of Aboriginal Australians remains largely uncharacterized. Here we generate high-coverage genomes for 83 Aboriginal Australians (speakers of Pama–Nyungan languages) and 25Expand

Genetic Variation and Recent Positive Selection in Worldwide Human Populations: Evidence from Nearly 1 Million SNPs
Background Genome-wide scans of hundreds of thousands of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have resulted in the identification of new susceptibility variants to common diseases and are providingExpand

Positive Selection in East Asians for an EDAR Allele that Enhances NF-κB Activation
Genome-wide scans for positive selection in humans provide a promising approach to establish links between genetic variants and adaptive phenotypes. From this approach, lists of hundreds of candidateExpand

Genome-wide data substantiate Holocene gene flow from India to Australia
The Australian continent holds some of the earliest archaeological evidence for the expansion of modern humans out of Africa, with initial occupation at least 40,000 y ago. It is commonly assumedExpand

Genetic dating indicates that the Asian–Papuan admixture through Eastern Indonesia corresponds to the Austronesian expansion
Although the Austronesian expansion had a major impact on the languages of Island Southeast Asia, controversy still exists over the genetic impact of this expansion. The coexistence of both Asian andExpand

Dating the age of admixture via wavelet transform analysis of genome-wide data
We describe a PCA-based genome scan approach to analyze genome-wide admixture structure, and introduce wavelet transform analysis as a method for estimating the time of admixture. We test the waveletExpand

The Complex Admixture History and Recent Southern Origins of Siberian Populations
Although Siberia was inhabited by modern humans at an early stage, there is still debate over whether it remained habitable during the extreme cold of the Last Glacial Maximum or whether it wasExpand

The Gateway from Near into Remote Oceania: New Insights from Genome-Wide Data
Abstract A widely accepted two‐wave scenario of human settlement of Oceania involves the first out‐of‐Africa migration circa 50,000 years ago (ya), and the more recent Austronesian expansion, whichExpand

The Current Genomic Landscape of Western South America: Andes, Amazonia, and Pacific Coast
Abstract Studies of Native South American genetic diversity have helped to shed light on the peopling and differentiation of the continent, but available data are sparse for the major ecogeographicExpand
