New binary polymorphisms reshape and increase resolution of the human Y chromosomal haplogroup tree.
TLDR
Major changes in the topology of the parsimony tree are described and names for new and rearranged lineages within the tree following the rules presented by the Y Chromosome Consortium in 2002 are provided.
Coevolution: Genes, Culture, and Human Diversity
Charles Darwin's On the Origins of Species had two principal goals: to show that species had not been separately created and to show that natural selection had been the main force behind their
The Settlement of the Americas: A Comparison of the Linguistic, Dental, and Genetic Evidence [and Comments and Reply]
The classification of the indigenous languages of the Americas by Greenberg distinguishes three stocks, Amerind, Na-Dene, and Aleut-Eskimo. The first of these covers almost all of the New World. The
Out of Africa and back again: nested cladistic analysis of human Y chromosome variation.
TLDR
It is inferred that one of the oldest events in the nested cladistic analysis was a range expansion out of Africa which resulted in the complete replacement of Y chromosomes throughout the Old World, a finding consistent with many versions of the Out of Africa Replacement Model.
Paternal population history of East Asia: sources, patterns, and microevolutionary processes.
TLDR
The peopling of East Asia was more complex than earlier models had proposed-that is, a multilayered, multidirectional, and multidisciplinary framework is necessary.
Ancestral Asian source(s) of new world Y-chromosome founder haplotypes.
TLDR
The contrasting distribution patterns of the two major candidate founder haplotypes in Asia and the New World, as well as the results of a nested cladistic analysis, suggest the possibility of more than one paternal migration from the general region of Lake Baikal to the Americas.
High-resolution SNPs and microsatellite haplotypes point to a single, recent entry of Native American Y chromosomes into the Americas.
TLDR
The hypothesis of a single migration of a polymorphic founding population better fits the expanded database and traced both lineages to a probable ancestral homeland in the vicinity of the Altai Mountains in Southwest Siberia.
Hierarchical patterns of global human Y-chromosome diversity.
TLDR
A nested cladistic analysis (NCA) demonstrated that both population structure processes (recurrent gene flow restricted by isolation by distance and long-distance dispersals) and population history events were instrumental in explaining this tripartite division of global NRY diversity.
Human Evolutionary Genetics: Origins, Peoples and Disease.
This is an absolutely superb book! I have been recommending it enthusiastically to professional colleagues, graduate students, and even the occasional highly motivated undergraduate student ever
The geographic distribution of human Y chromosome variation.
TLDR
Variation on the nonrecombining portion of the human Y chromosome is examined to investigate human evolution during the last 200,000 years, compatible with a variety of hypotheses, including multiple human migrations and range expansions.
