Demographic change of human populations is one of the central questions for delving into the past of human beings. To identify major population expansions related to male lineages, we sequenced 78 East Asian Y chromosomes at 3.9 Mbp of the non-recombining region, discovered >4,000 new SNPs, and identified many new clades. The relative divergence dates can(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNA molecules that are involved in a variety of cellular functions. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been identified in mature miRNAs (mmSNPs), some of which have been linked to cancer risk; however, it is unclear which mmSNPs contribute to the susceptibility to thyroid tumors. In the present study, we(More)
