Molecular genetic data contain information on the history of populations. Evidence of prehistoric demographic expansions has been detected in the mitochondrial diversity of most human populations and in a Y-chromosome STR analysis, but not in a previous study of 11 Y-chromosome SNPs in Europeans. In this paper, we show that mismatch distributions and tests of mutation/drift equilibrium based on up to 166 Y-chromosome SNPs, in 46 samples from all continents, also fail to support an increase of… Expand
Human paternal and maternal demographic histories: insights from high-resolution Y chromosome and mtDNA sequences
TLDR
The results confirm the controversial assertion that genetic differences between human populations on a global scale are bigger for the NRY than for mtDNA and suggest very small ancestral effective population sizes (<100) for the out-of-Africa migration as well as for many human populations. Expand
Transmission of migration propensity increases genetic divergence between populations.
TLDR
It is concluded that the widespread patrilocal rules of postmarital residence have generated both a higher female migration rate and a patrilineal dependency in the propensity to migrate. Expand
Female-to-male breeding ratio in modern humans-an analysis based on historical recombinations.
TLDR
The ratio of population recombination rates between the X chromosome and the autosomes, rho(X)/rho(A) reflects the female-to-male breeding ratio, beta, and it is shown that at alpha not equal 1, the divergence rates and genetic diversities of the X chromosomes relative to the autosome are complex functions of both alpha and beta, making their independent estimation difficult.

Human paternal and maternal demographic histories: insights from high-resolution Y chromosome and mtDNA sequences
TLDR
The results confirm the controversial assertion that genetic differences between human populations on a global scale are bigger for the NRY than for mtDNA, although the differences are not as large as previously suggested. Expand
The Parallel Lives of Human Y Chromosome Lineages Across the Strait of Gibraltar
The patrilineal transmission of the Y chromosome and the fact that diversity in it accumulates along a strict genealogy imply that, by observing the current Y chromosome diversity in men, inferencesExpand
Inferring genealogical processes from patterns of Bronze-Age and modern DNA variation in Sardinia.
TLDR
It is shown that a direct genealogical continuity between Bronze-Age Sardinians and the current people of Ogliastra, but not Gallura, has a much higher probability than any alternative scenarios and that genetic diversity in Gallura evolved largely independently, owing in part to gene flow from the mainland. Expand
Estimating the impact of prehistoric admixture on the genome of Europeans.
TLDR
Several tests suggest that probable departures from the admixture models, due to factors such as choice of the putative parental populations and more complex demographic scenarios, may have affected the main estimates only to a limited extent. Expand
Cultural Innovations Influence Patterns of Genetic Diversity in Northwestern Amazonia
TLDR
This study sequenced 2.3 Mb of the NRY from 284 individuals representing more than 30 Native American groups from Northwestern Amazonia and compared these data to previously generated mtDNA genomes from the same groups, to investigate the impact of cultural practices on genetic diversity and gain new insights about NWA population history.

Inferring sex-specific demographic history from SNP data
TLDR
A novel method to estimate effective sex ratios or ESR from allele count data for each branch of a rooted tree topology that summarizes the history of the populations of interest, and is based on a hierarchical Bayesian model to integrate over the allele frequencies along the branches. Expand

Y-chromosome mismatch distributions in Europe.
TLDR
The observed mismatch distributions appear to reflect different underlying demographic histories and/or selective pressures for maternally and paternally transmitted loci, and the difference between the mismatch distributions inferred from mitochondrial and Y-chromosome data are not a statistical artifact. Expand
Genetic evidence for a higher female migration rate in humans
TLDR
It is found that Y chromosome variants tend to be more localized geographically than those of mtDNA and the autosomes, and the reduction of variation within populations for Y chromosome single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) is of such magnitude that differences in the effective population sizes of the sexes alone are insufficient to produce the observation. Expand
Recent common ancestry of human Y chromosomes: evidence from DNA sequence data.
TLDR
It is estimated that the spread of Y chromosomes out of Africa is much more recent than previously was thought, and the data indicate substantial population growth in the effective number of human Y chromosomes. Expand
A recent common ancestry for human Y chromosomes
TLDR
Inferences contradict predictions of the multiregional hypothesis positing a widespread transformation of Homo erectus populations into Homo sapiens and are consistent with auto-somal and mitochondrial DNA studies that suggest a long-term human effective population size of 10,000 and a sex ratio of 1. Expand
Genetic Structure of the Ancestral Population of Modern Humans
TLDR
This ancestral population was characterized by an effective size of about 10,000 as estimated from the nucleotide diversity; this size may describe the number of breeding individuals over a long time during the Middle Pleistocene or reflect a speciation bottleneck from an initially larger population at the end of this period.

TLDR
Two new statistical tests for population expansion use variation at a number of unlinked genetic markers to study the demographic histories of natural populations, showing highly significant evidence for a major human population expansion in Africa, but no evidence of expansion outside of Africa. Expand
Microsatellites provide evidence for Y chromosome diversity among the founders of the New World.
TLDR
The hypothesis of a single-founder Y haplotype for Amerinds is evaluated by using 11 Y-specific markers in five Colombian Amerind populations to demonstrate the existence of at least two Amerind founder haplotypes, one of them largely restricted to Native Americans. Expand
Y chromosome sequence variation and the history of human populations
Binary polymorphisms associated with the non-recombining region of the human Y chromosome (NRY) preserve the paternal genetic legacy of our species that has persisted to the present, permittingExpand
Population growth of human Y chromosomes: a study of Y chromosome microsatellites.
TLDR
The finding of a recent common ancestor (probably in the last 120,000 years), coupled with a strong signal of demographic expansion in all populations, suggests either a recent human expansion from a small ancestral population, or natural selection acting on the Y chromosome. Expand
Archaic African and Asian lineages in the genetic ancestry of modern humans.
TLDR
Patterns of beta-globin diversity suggest extensive worldwide late Pleistocene gene flow and are not easily reconciled with a unidirectional migration out of Africa 100,000 years ago and total replacement of archaic populations in Asia. Expand
