  journal={Molecular Genetics and Genomics},
We have determined the distribution of Y chromosomal haplotypes and haplogroups in population samples from one of the most important areas in north-eastern Hungary from many villages in the Bodrogköz. The Bodrogköz region was chosen due to its isolated nature, because this area was a moorland encircled by the Tisza, Bodrog, and Latorca Rivers and inhabitants of this part of Hungary escaped from both Tatar and Ottoman invasions, which decimated the post-Hungarian Conquest populations in many… Expand

Paternal genetic history of the Yong population in northern Thailand revealed by Y-chromosomal haplotypes and haplogroups
This study has revealed similar genetic structures among ethnic populations in northern Thailand and southern China, and has identified and emphasized an ancient Tai-Kadai patrilineal ancestry line in the Yong ethnic group. Expand
Y-chromosomal connection between Hungarians and geographically distant populations of the Ural Mountain region and West Siberia
This work reconstructs the phylogeny of N3a4-Z1936 clade by using 33 high-coverage Y-chromosomal sequences and estimates the coalescent times of its sub-clades and shows the presence of N2a3-B539 lineages among Hungarians and in the populations from Ural Mountain region, including Ob-Ugric-speakers from West Siberia who are geographically distant but linguistically closest to Hungarians. Expand
Genetic history of Bashkirian Mari and Southern Mansi ethnic groups in the Ural region
Overall, the Hungarian, Mansi, and Bashkirian Mari populations have a much more complex genetic history than the traditional linguistic model or history would suggest and may have been acquired directly or indirectly during the more or less known their history. Expand
Genetic analysis of male Hungarian Conquerors: European and Asian paternal lineages of the conquering Hungarian tribes
According to historical sources, ancient Hungarians were made up of seven allied tribes and the fragmented tribes that split off from the Khazars, and they arrived from the Eastern European steppesExpand
Mitogenomic data indicate admixture components of Asian Hun and Srubnaya origin in the Hungarian Conquerors
Phylogenetic and population genetic analysis indicated that more than one third of the Conqueror maternal lineages were derived from Central-Inner Asia and their most probable ultimate sources were the Asian Huns. Expand
Mitogenomic data indicate admixture components of Central-Inner Asian and Srubnaya origin in the conquering Hungarians
Phylogenetic results reveal that more than one third of the Conqueror maternal lineages were derived from Central-Inner Asia and their most probable ultimate sources were the Asian Scythians and Asian Huns, giving support to the Hungarian Hun tradition. Expand
Biologia futura: confessions in genes
Y-DNA and mtDNA provide tools for mapping the migration routes of human populations during prehistoric and historical periods, separately as maternal and paternal lineages, and together as the genetic history of a population. Expand
Forensic characteristics and genetic affinity analyses of Xinjiang Mongolian group using a novel six fluorescent dye‐labeled typing system including 41 Y‐STRs and 3 Y‐InDels
Studying the genetic structure of the Mongolia group will help to bring to light the Mongolian ethnic origin, and explicate the genetic affinities among the studied and compared populations. Expand
Predicting haplogroups using a versatile machine learning program (PredYMaLe) on a new mutationally balanced 32 Y-STR multiplex (CombYplex): Unlocking the full potential of the human STR mutation rate spectrum to estimate forensic parameters.
Evidence is provided that the ML approach is a robust method to accurately predict haplogroups when it is combined with a sufficient number of markers, well-balanced mutation rate Y-STR panels, and large ML training sets. Expand
Tandem repeats lead to sequence assembly errors and impose multi-level challenges for genome and protein databases
A review of the problems associated with tandem repeat sequences that originate from different stages during the sequencing-assembly-annotation-deposition workflow, and that may proliferate in public database repositories affecting all downstream analyses, to raise the awareness level within the community of database users and alert scientists working in the underlying workflow of database creation.

Y-Chromosome Diversity in Modern Bulgarians: New Clues about Their Ancestry
The data suggest that a common paternal ancestry between the proto-Bulgarians and the Altaic and Central Asian Turkic-speaking populations either did not exist or was negligible. Expand
MtDNA and Y chromosome polymorphisms in Hungary: inferences from the palaeolithic, neolithic and Uralic influences on the modern Hungarian gene pool
The results suggest that the influence of Magyars on the Hungarian gene pool has been very low through both females and males and the Hungarian language could be an example of cultural dominance. Expand
Afghan Hindu Kush: Where Eurasian Sub-Continent Gene Flows Converge
The pattern of genetic variation indicates that the people of Afghanistan are made up of a mosaic of components representing various geographic regions of Eurasian ancestry, and that the Hindu Kush is a confluence of gene flows rather than a source of distinctly autochthonous populations that have arisen in situ. Expand
Y-Chromosome distribution within the geo-linguistic landscape of northwestern Russia
Although most genetic relationships throughout Eurasia are dependent on geographic proximity, members of the Uralic and Slavic linguistic families and subfamilies, yield significant correlations at both levels of comparison making it difficult to denote either linguistics or geographic proximity as the basis for their genetic substrata.

Pasture Names with Romance and Slavic Roots Facilitate Dissection of Y Chromosome Variation in an Exclusively German-Speaking Alpine Region
The combined use of onomastic and molecular genetic data revealed and mapped the marked structuring of the distribution of Y chromosomes in an alpine region that has been culturally homogeneous for centuries. Expand
The phylogenetic and geographic structure of Y-chromosome haplogroup R1a
The spatial frequency distributions of R1a sub-haplogroups conclusively indicate two major groups, one found primarily in Europe and the other confined to Central and South Asia. Expand
MtDNA polymorphism in the Hungarians: comparison to three other Finno-Ugric-speaking populations.
The genetic variation observed among the Hungarians resembled closely that found in other European populations and could not be distinguished from the neighboring populations any more than from their Finno-Ugric linguistic relatives. Expand
Y‐Chromosome Analysis of Ancient Hungarian and Two Modern Hungarian‐Speaking Populations from the Carpathian Basin
The Hungarian population belongs linguistically to the Finno‐Ugric branch of the Uralic family. The Tat C allele is an interesting marker in the Finno‐Ugric context, distributed in all theExpand
Y-SNP L1034: limited genetic link between Mansi and Hungarian-speaking populations
This is the first attempt to divide haplogroup N-Tat into subhaplogroups by testing new downstream SNP markers L708 and L1034, which seems to be a subgroup of N-tat, which is typical for Mansi and Hungarian-speaking ethnic groups so far. Expand
Shared language, diverging genetic histories: high-resolution analysis of Y-chromosome variability in Calabrian and Sicilian Arbereshe
The results revealed that the considered Arbereshe groups, despite speaking closely related languages and sharing common cultural features, actually experienced diverging genetic histories, and these processes ultimately resulted in the differential acquisition or preservation of specific paternal lineages by the present-day Arbreshe communities.
