Worldwide Human Relationships Inferred from Genome-Wide Patterns of Variation
TLDR
A pattern of ancestral allele frequency distributions that reflects variation in population dynamics among geographic regions is observed and is consistent with the hypothesis of a serial founder effect with a single origin in sub-Saharan Africa. Expand
High resolution of human evolutionary trees with polymorphic microsatellites
TLDR
It is shown that polymorphic microsatellites (primarily CA repeats) allow trees of human individuals to be constructed that reflect their geographic origin with remarkable accuracy by the analysis of a large number of loci for each individual, in spite of the small variations in allele frequencies existing between populations. Expand
Support from the relationship of genetic and geographic distance in human populations for a serial founder effect originating in Africa.
TLDR
It is found that heterozygosities in the globally distributed populations of the data set are best explained by an expansion originating in Africa and that no geographic origin outside of Africa accounts as well for the observed patterns of genetic diversity. Expand
The genetic legacy of Paleolithic Homo sapiens sapiens in extant Europeans: a Y chromosome perspective.
TLDR
A significant correlation between the NRY haplotype data and principal components based on 95 protein markers was observed, indicating the effectiveness of NRY binary polymorphisms in the characterization of human population composition and history. Expand
The phylogeography of Y chromosome binary haplotypes and the origins of modern human populations
TLDR
A set of unique event polymorphisms associated with the non‐recombining portion of the Y‐chromosome (NRY) addresses this issue by providing evidence concerning successful migrations originating from Africa, which can be interpreted as subsequent colonizations, differentiations and migrations overlaid upon previous population ranges. Expand
Polarity and temporality of high-resolution y-chromosome distributions in India identify both indigenous and exogenous expansions and reveal minor genetic influence of Central Asian pastoralists.
TLDR
The reappraisal indicates that pre-Holocene and Holocene-era--not Indo-European--expansions have shaped the distinctive South Asian Y-chromosome landscape. Expand
Origin, diffusion, and differentiation of Y-chromosome haplogroups E and J: inferences on the neolithization of Europe and later migratory events in the Mediterranean area.
TLDR
The phylogeography of Y-chromosome haplogroups E and J was investigated in >2400 subjects from 29 populations, mainly from Europe and the Mediterranean area but also from Africa and Asia, revealing spatial patterns that are consistent with a Levantine/Anatolian dispersal route to southeastern Europe. Expand
Detection of numerous Y chromosome biallelic polymorphisms by denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography.
TLDR
It is now possible to anticipate the inevitable detailed reconstruction of human Y chromosome genealogy based on several tens to even hundreds of these important polymorphisms. Expand
The genetic legacy of Paleolithic Homo sapiens sapiens in extant Europeans: a Y chromosome perspective.
TLDR
A significant correlation between the NRY haplotype data and principal components based on 95 protein markers was observed, indicating the effectiveness of NRY binary polymorphisms in the characterization of human population composition and history. Expand
