Reconstructing Indian Population History
India has been underrepresented in genome-wide surveys of human variation. We analyse 25 diverse groups in India to provide strong evidence for two ancient populations, genetically divergent, thatExpand

Identification, characterization and utilization of EST-derived genic microsatellite markers for genome analyses of coffee and related species
Genic microsatellites or EST–SSRs derived from expressed sequence tags (ESTs) are desired because these are inexpensive to develop, represent transcribed genes, and often a putative function can beExpand

Genome-wide analysis of microsatellite repeats in humans: their abundance and density in specific genomic regions
BackgroundSimple sequence repeats (SSRs) are found in most organisms, and occupy about 3% of the human genome. Although it is becoming clear that such repeats are important in genomic organizationExpand

Species Structure, Dry Matter Dynamics and Carbon Flux of a Dry Tropical Forest in India
Species composition, plant biomass and net primary productivity were studied on three sites of a dry tropical forest The forest was characterized by small structure with 38-10.4 m 2 ha −1 tree and 3Expand

Reconstructing the Origin of Andaman Islanders
The origin of the Andaman "Negrito" and Nicobar "Mongoloid" populations has been ambiguous. Our analyses of complete mitochondrial DNA sequences from Onges and Great Andaman populations revealed twoExpand

Missense mutations in the BMP15 gene are associated with ovarian failure
Premature ovarian failure (POF) is an unexplained amenorrhoea (>6 months) with raised levels of gonadotropins (FSH>40 U/L) occurring before the age of 40 years. Recent studies have elucidated theExpand

Genetic evidence for recent population mixture in India.
Most Indian groups descend from a mixture of two genetically divergent populations: Ancestral North Indians (ANI) related to Central Asians, Middle Easterners, Caucasians, and Europeans; andExpand

Phylogeography and origin of Indian domestic goats.
The Indian subcontinent contains 20 well-characterized goat breeds, which vary in their genetic potential for the production of milk, meat, and fibre; disease resistance; heat tolerance; andExpand

Genetic Affinities of the Andaman Islanders, a Vanishing Human Population
BACKGROUND The Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal are inhabited by hunter-gatherers of unknown origin, now on the verge of extinction. The Andamanese and other Asian small-statured peoples,Expand

In situ origin of deep rooting lineages of mitochondrial Macrohaplogroup 'M' in India
BackgroundMacrohaplogroups 'M' and 'N' have evolved almost in parallel from a founder haplogroup L3. Macrohaplogroup N in India has already been defined in previous studies and recently theExpand
