An unequal contribution of male and female lineages from parental populations to admixed ones is not uncommon in the American continents, as a consequence of directional gene flow from European men into African and Hispanic Americans in the past several centuries. However, little is known about sex-biased admixture in East Asia, where substantial migrations are recorded. Tibeto-Burman (TB) populations were historically derived from ancient tribes of northwestern China and subsequently moved to…

The genomic landscape of Nepalese Tibeto-Burmans reveals new insights into the recent peopling of Southern Himalayas
TLDR
These findings improved the understanding of the impact of gene flow/drift on the evolution of high-altitude Himalayan peoples and shed light on migration events that drove colonization of the southern Himalayan slopes, as well as on the role played by different Tibeto-Burman groups in such a complex demographic scenario.
Genetic insights into the origins of Tibeto-Burman populations in the Himalayas
TLDR
A Northeast Asian origin for the Himalayan populations with subsequent gene flow from South Asia into the Kathmandu valley and the Newar population is suggested, corroborating a previous Y-chromosome study.
Genetic structure of Sino-Tibetan populations revealed by forensic STR loci
TLDR
Genotyping 15 forensic autosomal STRs from 803 unrelated Tibetan individuals from Gansu Province revealed that the genetic structure of Sino-Tibetan populations was strongly correlated with linguistic affiliations, and the genetic components for Tibetan, Lolo-Burmese, and Han Chinese were quite distinctive.
Traces of Archaic Mitochondrial Lineages Persist in Austronesian-Speaking Formosan Populations
TLDR
Considering the lack of a common specific Y chromosomal element shared by the Taiwanese aboriginals and Polynesians, the mtDNA evidence provided here is consistent with the suggestion that the proto-Oceanic societies would have been mainly matrilocal.
Admixed Origin of the Kayah (Red Karen) in Northern Thailand Revealed by Biparental and Paternal Markers
TLDR
Findings in linguistics that Karenic languages are ST languages that became heavily influenced by TK during their southward spread are agreed, which indicates an admixed origin of male KA lineages.
Extended Y chromosome investigation suggests postglacial migrations of modern humans into East Asia via the northern route.
TLDR
It is proposed that although the Paleolithic migrations via the southern route played a major role in modern human settlement in East Asia, there are ancient contributions, though limited, from THE AUTHORS, which partly explain the genetic divergence between current southern and northern East Asian populations.
Analysis of mitochondrial genome diversity identifies new and ancient maternal lineages in Cambodian aborigines.
TLDR
Using mitochondrial whole-genome sequencing, eight new mitochondrial DNA haplog groups are identified, all of which are either newly defined basal haplogroups or basal sub-branches, suggesting that present-day Cambodian aborigines still carry ancient genetic polymorphisms in their maternal lineages.
Genetic affinity and admixture of northern Thai people along their migration route in northern Thailand: evidence from autosomal STR loci
TLDR
Different admixture patterns of the KM along the migration route might indicate high heterogeneity among the KM, suggesting other factors, like variation in the timing of admixture with the existing populations may have had an important role.
Common genetic heritage and admixture among Indian population groups as revealed by mtDNA markers
TLDR
The study provides evidence for a common maternal maternal substratum of Indian populations with probable differential admixture from Eurasia, i.e Europe and Asia, with a decreasing trend from North to South India.
Combining Genetics and Population History in the Study of Ethnic Diversity in the People's Republic of China
TLDR
From the Y-chromosome data in particular, major demographic changes, such as the Neolithic population expansion and more recent historical events including migration along the Silk Road, could be inferred.

Phylogeographic analysis of mtDNA variation in four ethnic populations from Yunnan Province: new data and a reappraisal
TLDR
The results suggest that more attention should be paid to sampling methodology when addressing the genetic relationship and affinity among ethnic populations, and comparison of related data from different labs may serve as a check for the credibility of the data and help discern the origin of the ethnic populations.
Unequal contributions of male and female gene pools from parental populations in the African descendants of the city of Melo, Uruguay.
TLDR
Evidence of male- and female-specific differential admixture components of African, European, and American Indian origin in an admixed population from the city of Melo, in the northeastern region of Uruguay is provided and it is argued that this heterogeneity of admixture estimates results from disproportionate unions of European males with African and AmericanIndian females.
Genetic relationship of Chinese ethnic populations revealed by mtDNA sequence diversity.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis and haplotype sharing among populations suggest that current mtDNA variation in these ethnic populations could reveal their ethnohistory to some extent, but in general, linguistic and geographic classifications of the populations did not agree well with classification by mt DNA variation.
DNA diversity and population admixture in Anatolia.
TLDR
The Turkic language was introduced in Anatolia at the start of this millennium, by nomadic Turkmen groups from Central Asia, and the most reliable estimates suggest roughly 30% Central Asian admixture for both mitochondrial and Y-chromosome loci.
Autosomal, mtDNA, and Y-chromosome diversity in Amerinds: pre- and post-Columbian patterns of gene flow in South America.
Ancestral proportions and admixture dynamics in geographically defined African Americans living in South Carolina.
TLDR
The results of this study indicate, in accordance with previous historical, cultural, and anthropological evidence, a very low level of European admixture in the Gullah Sea Islanders, and a continuous gene flow model of admixture could explain the observed pattern of genetic structure.

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.
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.
Mitochondrial DNA analysis of Mongolian populations and implications for the origin of New World founders.
TLDR
It is proposed that indigenous populations in east Central Asia represent the closest genetic link between Old and New World populations and is likely that founder effects manifest throughout Asia and the Americas are responsible for differences in mtDNA haplotype frequencies observed in these regions.
