Tracing European founder lineages in the Near Eastern mtDNA pool.
Founder analysis is a method for analysis of nonrecombining DNA sequence data, with the aim of identification and dating of migrations into new territory. The method picks out founder sequence typesExpand

The Simons Genome Diversity Project: 300 genomes from 142 diverse populations
Here we report the Simons Genome Diversity Project data set: high quality genomes from 300 individuals from 142 diverse populations. These genomes include at least 5.8 million base pairs that are notExpand

Ancient human genomes suggest three ancestral populations for present-day Europeans
We sequenced genomes from a ∼7,000 year old early farmer from Stuttgart in Germany, an ∼8,000 year old hunter-gatherer from Luxembourg, and seven ∼8,000 year old hunter-gatherers from southernExpand

Beringian Standstill and Spread of Native American Founders
Native Americans derive from a small number of Asian founders who likely arrived to the Americas via Beringia. However, additional details about the intial colonization of the Americas remainExpand

Deep common ancestry of Indian and western-Eurasian mitochondrial DNA lineages
About a fifth of the human gene pool belongs largely either to Indo-European or Dravidic speaking people inhabiting the Indian peninsula. The 'Caucasoid share' in their gene pool is thought to beExpand

The genetic heritage of the earliest settlers persists both in Indian tribal and caste populations.
Two tribal groups from southern India--the Chenchus and Koyas--were analyzed for variation in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), the Y chromosome, and one autosomal locus and were compared with six casteExpand

The emerging limbs and twigs of the East Asian mtDNA tree.
We determine the phylogenetic backbone of the East Asian mtDNA tree by using published complete mtDNA sequences and assessing both coding and control region variation in 69 Han individuals fromExpand

Erratum to: Most of the extant mtDNA boundaries in South and Southwest Asia were likely shaped during the initial settlement of Eurasia by anatomically modern humans
Recent advances in the understanding of the maternal and paternal heritage of south and southwest Asian populations have highlighted their role in the colonization of Eurasia by anatomically modernExpand

A "Copernican" reassessment of the human mitochondrial DNA tree from its root.
Mutational events along the human mtDNA phylogeny are traditionally identified relative to the revised Cambridge Reference Sequence, a contemporary European sequence published in 1981. ThisExpand

Ethiopian mitochondrial DNA heritage: tracking gene flow across and around the gate of tears.
Approximately 10 miles separate the Horn of Africa from the Arabian Peninsula at Bab-el-Mandeb (the Gate of Tears). Both historic and archaeological evidence indicate tight cultural connections, overExpand
