Population genomics of Bronze Age Eurasia
It is shown that the Bronze Age was a highly dynamic period involving large-scale population migrations and replacements, responsible for shaping major parts of present-day demographic structure in both Europe and Asia.
An Aboriginal Australian Genome Reveals Separate Human Dispersals into Asia
It is shown that Aboriginal Australians are descendants of an early human dispersal into eastern Asia, possibly 62,000 to 75,000 years ago, which is separate from the one that gave rise to modern Asians 25, thousands of years ago.
Ancient human genome sequence of an extinct Palaeo-Eskimo
This genome sequence of an ancient human obtained from ∼4,000-year-old permafrost-preserved hair provides evidence for a migration from Siberia into the New World some 5,500 years ago, independent of that giving rise to the modern Native Americans and Inuit.
The genome of a Late Pleistocene human from a Clovis burial site in western Montana
The genome sequence of a male infant recovered from the Anzick burial site in western Montana is sequenced and it is shown that the gene flow from the Siberian Upper Palaeolithic Mal’ta population into Native American ancestors is also shared by the AnZick-1 individual and thus happened before 12,600 years bp.
Genomic evidence for the Pleistocene and recent population history of Native Americans
The results suggest that there has been gene flow between some Native Americans from both North and South America and groups related to East Asians and Australo-Melanesians, the latter possibly through an East Asian route that might have included ancestors of modern Aleutian Islanders.
The genetic prehistory of the New World Arctic
The long-term genetic continuity of the Paleo-Eskimos gene pool and lack of evidence of Native American admixture suggest that the Saqqaq and Dorset people were largely living in genetic isolation after entering the New World.
Paleo-Eskimo mtDNA Genome Reveals Matrilineal Discontinuity in Greenland
A mitochondrial genome from a Paleo-Eskimo human sequenced by using 3400-to 4500-year-old frozen hair excavated from an early Greenlandic Saqqaq settlement suggests that the earliest migrants into the New World's northern extremes derived from populations in the Bering Sea area and were not directly related to Native Americans or the later Neo-ESkimos that replaced them.

Evidence is provided of one of the strongest selective sweeps reported in humans that has driven this variant to high frequency in circum-Arctic populations within the last 6-23 ka despite associated deleterious consequences, possibly as a result of the selective advantage it originally provided to either a high-fat diet or a cold environment.
