The genetic history of Ice Age Europe
Modern humans arrived in Europe ~45,000 years ago, but little is known about their genetic composition before the start of farming ~8,500 years ago. We analyze genome-wide data from 51 Eurasians fromExpand

A high-coverage Neandertal genome from Vindija Cave in Croatia
Revelations from a Vindija Neandertal genome Neandertals clearly interbred with the ancestors of non-African modern humans, but many questions remain about our closest ancient relatives. Prüfer etExpand

An early modern human from Romania with a recent Neanderthal ancestor
Neanderthals are thought to have disappeared in Europe approximately 39,000–41,000 years ago but they have contributed 1–3% of the DNA of present-day people in Eurasia. Here we analyse DNA from aExpand

Reducing microbial and human contamination in DNA extractions from ancient bones and teeth.
Although great progress has been made in improving methods for generating DNA sequences from ancient biological samples, many, if not most, samples are still not amenable for analyses due toExpand

The formation of human populations in South and Central Asia
Ancient human movements through Asia Ancient DNA has allowed us to begin tracing the history of human movements across the globe. Narasimhan et al. identify a complex pattern of human migrations andExpand

Reconstructing the Genetic History of Late Neandertals
Although it has previously been shown that Neanderthals contributed DNA to modern humans, not much is known about the genetic diversity of Neanderthals or the relationship between late NeanderthalExpand

Reconstructing Prehistoric African Population Structure
We assembled genome-wide data from 16 prehistoric Africans. We show that the anciently divergent lineage that comprises the primary ancestry of the southern African San had a wider distribution inExpand

The Genomic Formation of South and Central Asia
The genetic formation of Central and South Asian populations has been unclear because of an absence of ancient DNA. To address this gap, we generated genome-wide data from 362 ancient individuals,Expand

Nuclear DNA from two early Neandertals reveals 80,000 years of genetic continuity in Europe
Sequences from two ~120,000-year-old individuals reveal the deep population history of European Neandertals. Little is known about the population history of Neandertals over the hundreds of thousandsExpand

Palaeoproteomic evidence identifies archaic hominins associated with the Châtelperronian at the Grotte du Renne
Significance The displacement of Neandertals by anatomically modern humans (AMHs) 50,000–40,000 y ago in Europe has considerable biological and behavioral implications. The Châtelperronian at theExpand
