Island Southeast Asia (ISEA) was first colonized by modern humans at least 45,000 years ago, but the extent to which the modern inhabitants trace their ancestry to the first settlers is a matter of debate. It is widely held, in both archaeology and linguistics, that they are largely descended from a second wave of dispersal, proto-Austronesian-speaking agriculturalists who originated in China and spread to Taiwan approximately 5,500 years ago. From there, they are thought to have dispersed into… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Climate change and postglacial human dispersals in southeast Asia.
TLDR
It is shown that haplogroup E, an important component of mtDNA diversity in the region, evolved in situ over the last 35,000 years and expanded dramatically throughout ISEA around the beginning of the Holocene, at the time when the ancient continent of Sundaland was being broken up into the present-day archipelago by rising sea levels.
Quantifying the legacy of the Chinese Neolithic on the maternal genetic heritage of Taiwan and Island Southeast Asia
TLDR
It is shown that, in total, about 20 % of mtDNA lineages in the modern ISEA pool result from the “out-of-Taiwan” dispersal, with most of the remainder signifying earlier processes, mainly due to sea-level rises after the Last Glacial Maximum.
Resolving the ancestry of Austronesian-speaking populations
TLDR
A primarily common ancestry for Taiwan/ISEA populations established before the Neolithic, but also detected clear signals of two minor Late Holocene migrations, probably representing Neolithic input from both Mainland Southeast Asia and South China, via Taiwan.
Ancient voyaging and Polynesian origins.
Three phases for the early peopling of Hainan Island viewed from mitochondrial DNA
Hainan, an island linking mainland East Asia and Southeast Asia, lay in one of the routes of early migration to East Asia. The largest indigenous group of Hainan is called Hlai, possibly direct
Reconnecting Genes, Languages and Material Culture in Island Southeast Asia: Aphorisms on Geography and History
The Holocene history of Island Southeast Asia (ISEA) is dominated by the ‘Out-of-Taiwan’ hypothesis and derivatives, such as the spread of the Island Southeast Asian Neolithic. According to these
Investigating the modern human settlement of Mainland Southeast Asia using mitochondrial DNA
Many questions remain about the settlement of anatomically modern humans in Mainland Southeast Asia (MSEA). During the last Ice Age, the Sunda shelf was exposed and the Sunda continent connected MSEA
Ancient inland human dispersals from Myanmar into interior East Asia since the Late Pleistocene
TLDR
Intriguingly, some haplogroups were shared merely between Myanmar and southwestern China, hinting certain genetic connection between both regions, suggesting that Myanmar was likely one of the differentiation centers of the early modern humans.
Ancestry of the Iban Is Predominantly Southeast Asian: Genetic Evidence from Autosomal, Mitochondrial, and Y Chromosomes
TLDR
It is concluded that migrations from Southeast Asia made a large contribution to Iban ancestry, although evidence of potential gene flow from Taiwan is also seen in uniparentally inherited marker data.

A predominantly indigenous paternal heritage for the Austronesian-speaking peoples of insular Southeast Asia and Oceania.
TLDR
Using detailed genealogical study of Y chromosome variation, it is shown that the majority of current Austronesian speakers trace their paternal heritage to Pleistocene settlers in the region, as opposed to more-recent agricultural immigrants.
Deciphering past human population movements in Oceania: provably optimal trees of 127 mtDNA genomes.
TLDR
The provably optimal trees found for the entire mtDNA sequences using the MMS method provide a reliable and robust framework for the interpretation of evolutionary relationships and confirm that the female settlers of Remote Oceania descended from both the existing inhabitants of Near Oceonia and more recent migrants into the region.
A signal, from human mtDNA, of postglacial recolonization in Europe.
TLDR
The present study shows that the dissection of mtDNA variation into small and well-defined evolutionary units is an essential step in the identification of spatial frequency patterns, and promises to be an efficient strategy for inferring features of human prehistory.
Phylogeography and ethnogenesis of aboriginal Southeast Asians.
TLDR
Analysis of mitochondrial DNA genome sequences from Peninsular Malaysia suggests an ancestry in Indochina around the time of the Last Glacial Maximum, followed by an early-Holocene dispersal through the Malay Peninsula into island Southeast Asia.
Single, Rapid Coastal Settlement of Asia Revealed by Analysis of Complete Mitochondrial Genomes
TLDR
It is shown that mitochondrial DNA variation in isolated “relict” populations in southeast Asia supports the view that there was only a single dispersal from Africa, most likely via a southern coastal route, through India and onward into southeast Asia and Australasia.
The origins of the Polynesians: an interpretation from mitochondrial lineage analysis.
TLDR
It is shown that the major prehistoric settlement of Polynesia was from the west and involved two or possibly three genetically distinct populations, and two Polynesians had unrelated haplotypes matching published sequences from native South Americans, which may be the first genetic evidence of prehistoric human contact between Polynesia and South America.
Origin and evolution of Native American mtDNA variation: a reappraisal.
TLDR
Reappraising mtDNA control region sequences from aboriginal Siberians and Native Americans confirms in agreement with linguistic, archaeological and climatic evidence that the major wave of migration brought one population, ancestral to the Amerinds, from northeastern Siberia to America 20,000-25,000 years ago.
Genetic evidence for the proto-Austronesian homeland in Asia: mtDNA and nuclear DNA variation in Taiwanese aboriginal tribes.
TLDR
The results suggest that the Taiwanese have temporally deep roots, probably in central or south China, and have been isolated from other Asian populations in recent history.

TLDR
Southeast Asia provided a genetic source for two independent migrations, one toward Taiwan and the other toward Polynesia through island Southeast Asia, according to the Y-chromosome data.
