CorrSieve: software for summarizing and evaluating Structure output
The package CorrSieve summarizes Structure output and performs a number of tests, including both previously reported methods and novel ones, to help determine meaningful values of K. Expand
Genetic diversity and phylogeography of broomcorn millet (Panicum miliaceum L.) across Eurasia
The genetic data are consistent with both the single and multiple domestication centre hypotheses and add specific detail to what these hypotheses would entail regarding the spread of broomcorn millet. Expand
Phylogeographic, ancient DNA, fossil and morphometric analyses reveal ancient and modern introductions of a large mammal: the complex case of red deer (Cervus elaphus) in Ireland
The problem of how and when the island of Ireland attained its contemporary fauna has remained a key question in understanding Quaternary faunal assemblages. We assessed the complex history andExpand
Salmonella enterica genomes from victims of a major sixteenth-century epidemic in Mexico
Ancient DNA from victims of a sixteenth-century disease in Mexico suggests that Salmonella enterica Paratyphi C (enteric fever) was responsible for a devastating epidemic that closely followed European presence in the region. Expand
Tetraploid Wheat Landraces in the Mediterranean Basin: Taxonomy, Evolution and Genetic Diversity
The population structure and genetic diversity data suggest a dynamic history of introduction and extinction of genotypes in the Mediterranean fields, and a genetically distinct population from durum and rivet. Expand
A flock of sheep, goats and cattle: ancient DNA analysis reveals complexities of historical parchment manufacture
The results suggest that the DNA content of parchment is more complex than previous research has suggested and that multiple stages of parchment manufacture, treatment and storage are preserved in parchment DNA extracts. Expand
The genetic origin and history of speed in the Thoroughbred racehorse.
It is shown that although the C-allele was rare among the celebrated racehorses of the 18th and 19th centuries, it has proliferated recently in the population via the stallion Nearctic, the sire of the most influential stallion of modern time, Northern Dancer. Expand
White-Nose Syndrome Fungus in a 1918 Bat Specimen from France
The causative fungus, Pseudogymnoascus destructans, is found in a 1918 sample collected in Europe, where bats have now adapted to the fungus, consistent with a Eurasian origin of the pathogen. Expand
Paternal origins of Chinese cattle.
The Y haplotype distribution of Chinese cattle exhibited a clear geographical structure, which is consistent with mtDNA, historical and geographical information. Expand
Characterization of cytochrome b diversity in Chinese domestic horses.
The high mitochondrially encoded cytochrome b haplotypic diversity suggests multiple maternal origins in Chinese horses. Expand
