Recalibrating Equus evolution using the genome sequence of an early Middle Pleistocene horse
The rich fossil record of equids has made them a model for evolutionary processes. Here we present a 1.12-times coverage draft genome from a horse bone recovered from permafrost dated toExpand

Greenlandic Inuit show genetic signatures of diet and climate adaptation
Greenlanders' genomes signal a fatty diet The evolutionary consequences of inhabiting a challenging environment can be seen within the genomes of Greenland Inuit. Fumagalli et al. have found signs ofExpand

A common Greenlandic TBC1D4 variant confers muscle insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes
The Greenlandic population, a small and historically isolated founder population comprising about 57,000 inhabitants, has experienced a dramatic increase in type 2 diabetes (T2D) prevalence duringExpand

Assessing the Effect of Sequencing Depth and Sample Size in Population Genetics Inferences
Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies have dramatically revolutionised research in many fields of genetics. The ability to sequence many individuals from one or multiple populations at aExpand

Prehistoric genomes reveal the genetic foundation and cost of horse domestication
Significance The domestication of the horse revolutionized warfare, trade, and the exchange of people and ideas. This at least 5,500-y-long process, which ultimately transformed wild horses into theExpand

Recent Asian origin of chytrid fungi causing global amphibian declines
Panzootic chytrid fungus out of Asia Species in the fungal genus Batrachochytrium are responsible for severe declines in the populations of amphibians globally. The sources of these pathogens haveExpand

Genome-culture coevolution promotes rapid divergence of killer whale ecotypes
Analysing population genomic data from killer whale ecotypes, which we estimate have globally radiated within less than 250,000 years, we show that genetic structuring including the segregation ofExpand

Archaic Adaptive Introgression in TBX15/WARS2
A recent study conducted the first genome-wide scan for selection in Inuit from Greenland using single nucleotide polymorphism chip data. Here, we report that selection in the region with the secondExpand

Framing ethnic minority mobilisation in Central Asia: The cases of Uzbeks in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan
Abstract This article seeks to understand why, although widely predicted, very little ethnically motivated political mobilisation has occurred in post-Soviet Central Asia. Building on theExpand

Alignments and Realignments in Central Asia: The Rationale and Implications of Uzbekistan's Rapprochement with Russia
The eviction of the USA from the military base at Khanabad-Qarshi and the signing of an alliance treaty between Uzbekistan and Russia in November 2005 marked one of the most dramatic turnarounds inExpand
