Upper Palaeolithic Siberian genome reveals dual ancestry of Native Americans
The origins of the First Americans remain contentious. Although Native Americans seem to be genetically most closely related to east Asians, there is no consensus with regard to which specific OldExpand

Genomic Variation in Seven Khoe-San Groups Reveals Adaptation and Complex African History
African Origins Humans originated in Africa and then spread across the globe. The high genetic diversity found in sub-Saharan Africa is consistent with this view, but the relationships among andExpand

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

Ancient Wolf Genome Reveals an Early Divergence of Domestic Dog Ancestors and Admixture into High-Latitude Breeds
The origin of domestic dogs is poorly understood [1-15], with suggested evidence of dog-like features in fossils that predate the Last Glacial Maximum [6, 9, 10, 14, 16] conflicting with geneticExpand

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

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
