Ethnic India: a genomic view, with special reference to peopling and structure.
We report a comprehensive statistical analysis of data on 58 DNA markers (mitochondrial [mt], Y-chromosomal, and autosomal) and sequence data of the mtHVS1 from a large number of ethnically diverseExpand

Human-specific insertion/deletion polymorphisms in Indian populations and their possible evolutionary implications
DNA samples from 396 unrelated individuals belonging to 14 ethnic populations of India, inhabiting various geographical locations and occupying various positions in the socio-cultural hierarchy, wereExpand

Variation at 4 short tandem repeat loci in 8 population groups of India.
We have determined the nature and extent of variation at 4 STR loci (CSF1P0, TPOX, TH01, VWA) in 8 caste and tribal population groups of eastern and northern India. Large differences in alleleExpand

Linkage disequilibrium patterns vary substantially among populations
A major initiative to create a global human haplotype map has recently been launched as a tool to improve the efficiency of disease gene mapping. The ‘HapMap’ project will study common variants inExpand

Geographically separate increases in the frequency of the derived ADH1B*47His allele in eastern and western Asia.
The ADH1B Arg47His polymorphism has been convincingly associated with alcoholism in numerous studies of several populations in Asia and Europe. In a review of literature from the past 30 years, weExpand

Congruence of genomic and ethnolinguistic affinities among five tribal populations of Madhya Pradesh (India)
The central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh is home to a large number of tribal populations of diverse linguistic and ethnic backgrounds. With a view to examining how well genomic affinities amongExpand

Haplotype block structures show significant variation among populations
Recent studies suggest that haplotypes tend to have block‐like structures throughout the human genome. Several methods were proposed for haplotype block partitioning and for tagging single‐nucleotideExpand

High-resolution analysis of Y-chromosomal polymorphisms reveals signatures of population movements from central Asia and West Asia into India
Linguistic evidence suggests that West Asia and Central Asia have been the two major geographical sources of genes in the contemporary Indian gene pool. To test the nature and extent of similaritiesExpand

Global survey of haplotype frequencies and linkage disequilibrium at the RET locus
We have constructed haplotypes based on normal variation at six polymorphic sites–five single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and one short tandem repeat polymorphism (STRP)–at the RET locus forExpand
