Great ape genetic diversity and population history
Most great ape genetic variation remains uncharacterized; however, its study is critical for understanding population history, recombination, selection and susceptibility to disease. Here we sequenceExpand

Y chromosome sequence variation and the history of human populations
Binary polymorphisms associated with the non-recombining region of the human Y chromosome (NRY) preserve the paternal genetic legacy of our species that has persisted to the present, permittingExpand

Trading genes along the silk road: mtDNA sequences and the origin of central Asian populations.
Central Asia is a vast region at the crossroads of different habitats, cultures, and trade routes. Little is known about the genetics and the history of the population of this region. We present theExpand

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

High-resolution analysis of human Y-chromosome variation shows a sharp discontinuity and limited gene flow between northwestern Africa and the Iberian Peninsula.
In the present study we have analyzed 44 Y-chromosome biallelic polymorphisms in population samples from northwestern (NW) Africa and the Iberian Peninsula, which allowed us to place each chromosomeExpand

Nucleotide substitution rates for the full set of mitochondrial protein-coding genes in Coleoptera.
The ages of cladogenetic events in Coleoptera are frequently estimated with mitochondrial protein-coding genes (MPCGs) and the "standard" mitochondrial nucleotide substitution rate for arthropods.Expand

Correlation between Genetic and Geographic Structure in Europe
Understanding the genetic structure of the European population is important, not only from a historical perspective, but also for the appropriate design and interpretation of genetic epidemiologicalExpand

Genetic diversity in the Iberian Peninsula determined from mitochondrial sequence analysis
We have analysed 302 bp of the first hypervariable region of the mitochondrial D‐loop in 271 individuals from different regions of the Iberian Peninsula and 85 individuals from Algeria. The BasqueExpand

The dawn of human matrilineal diversity.
The quest to explain demographic history during the early part of human evolution has been limited because of the scarce paleoanthropological record from the Middle Stone Age. To shed light on theExpand

Admixture, migrations, and dispersals in Central Asia: evidence from maternal DNA lineages
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) lineages of 232 individuals from 12 Central Asian populations were sequenced for both control region hypervariable segments, and additional informative sites in the codingExpand
