Runs of homozygosity in European populations.
Estimating individual genome-wide autozygosity is important both in the identification of recessive disease variants via homozygosity mapping and in the investigation of the effects of genome-wideExpand

SLC2A9 is a newly identified urate transporter influencing serum urate concentration, urate excretion and gout
Uric acid is the end product of purine metabolism in humans and great apes, which have lost hepatic uricase activity, leading to uniquely high serum uric acid concentrations (200–500 μM) comparedExpand

Phylogeography of Y-chromosome haplogroup I reveals distinct domains of prehistoric gene flow in europe.
To investigate which aspects of contemporary human Y-chromosome variation in Europe are characteristic of primary colonization, late-glacial expansions from refuge areas, Neolithic dispersals, orExpand

A genome-wide approach accounting for body mass index identifies genetic variants influencing fasting glycemic traits and insulin resistance
Recent genome-wide association studies have described many loci implicated in type 2 diabetes (T2D) pathophysiology and β-cell dysfunction but have contributed little to the understanding of theExpand

Disuniting uniformity: a pied cladistic canvas of mtDNA haplogroup H in Eurasia.
It has been often stated that the overall pattern of human maternal lineages in Europe is largely uniform. Yet this uniformity may also result from an insufficient depth and width of the phylogeneticExpand

The western and eastern roots of the Saami--the story of genetic "outliers" told by mitochondrial DNA and Y chromosomes.
The Saami are regarded as extreme genetic outliers among European populations. In this study, a high-resolution phylogenetic analysis of Saami genetic heritage was undertaken in a comprehensiveExpand

High-resolution phylogenetic analysis of southeastern Europe traces major episodes of paternal gene flow among Slavic populations.
The extent and nature of southeastern Europe (SEE) paternal genetic contribution to the European genetic landscape were explored based on a high-resolution Y chromosome analysis involving 681 malesExpand

An mtDNA perspective of French genetic variation
Background: The French has been insufficiently characterized so far for mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) diversity. Aims: The study aimed to enhance the information available for the French mtDNA pool andExpand

Y chromosomal heritage of Croatian population and its island isolates
Y chromosome variation in 457 Croatian samples was studied using 16 SNPs/indel and eight STR loci. High frequency of haplogroup I in Croatian populations and the phylogeographic pattern in itsExpand

MtDNA haplogroups in the populations of Croatian Adriatic Islands.
The number of previous anthropological studies pointed to very complex ethnohistorical processes that shaped the current genetic structure of Croatian island isolates. The scope of this study wasExpand
