We have analyzed five Y-specific microsatellite loci (DYS388, DYS390, DYS391, DYS394, DYS395) in 17 Asian and Pacific populations representing a broad geographical area and different linguistic families, with an emphasis on populations from mainland and insular Southeast Asia. Analysis of gene diversity indicates that several of the studied populations have experienced substantial genetic isolation, and a reduction in male effective sizes (viz. the Northeast Indian populations Nishi, Adi and… 

Y-Chromosome-Specific STR Haplotype Data on the Rapanui Population (Easter Island)

Analysis of Rapanui's relationships with other Pacific and Asian populations indicates that, as in Western Samoa and Samoa, the population has experienced extreme drift and founder events.

Autosomal STR Variation in Five Austronesian Populations

Phylogenetic data indicate that, despite their linguistic commonalities, these five Austronesian-speaking groups are genetically distinct, which justifies the creation of population-specific databases for human identification.

A Study of Y-Chromosome Microsatellite Variation in Sub-Saharan Africa: A Comparison between F ST and R ST Genetic Distances

It is suggested that Y-chromosome microsatellite data may provide useful information for analyses of interpopulational diversity among sub-Saharan populations if an adequate number of loci and individuals along with an appropriate genetic distance method are used.

Y chromosome compound haplotypes with the microsatellite markers DXYS265, DXYS266, and DXYS241

The triplex PCR developed in this study, as well as the new loci, are useful for tracing paternal lineages in human migration studies and population analysis, in addition to Y chromosome evolutionary studies.

Binary and microsatellite polymorphisms of the Y‐chromosome in the Mbenzele pygmies from the Central African Republic

Five out seven haplotypes which are shared by the Mbenzele and Biaka Pygmies belong to haplogroup E3a, which suggests that they are of Bantu origin, which is consistent with the common origin and geographical proximity of the two populations.

Austronesian genetic signature in East African Madagascar and Polynesia

The results indicate that while Madagascar derives 66.3% of its genetic makeup from Africa, a clear connection between the East African island and Southeast Asia can be discerned and suggest that although geographic location has influenced the phylogenetic relationships between Austronesian populations, a genetic connection that binds them beyond geographical divides is apparent.

Variasi DNA Mikrosatelit Kromosom Y pada Masyarakat Bali Mula Terunyan

The haplotype data showed that Terunyan society derived from many gene sources, dominated by major haplotype with frequency of 0.50 which spread out in many genealogical lineage called dadia.

Pendahuluan Masyarakat Bali dikenal memiliki adat istiadat dan budayanya yang kuatserta beragam kelompok masyarakatnya yang dibedakan berdas

The dendogram indicates that Pande clan from district of Seririt did not cluster based on it’s dadia, and the genetic identity from the varieties of allelic diversity found on Pande community inside and outside Seririt using microsatellite DNA analysis of Y chromosome is found.

Expansion of Austronesian Languages and their Speakers during the Neolithic as Inferred from Archaeological Evidence and Genetic Diversity in Southeast Asia and Discussed in Five Journals

This paper is a journal review on Austronesian expansion in Southeast Asia. Most archaeological research in the Neolithic Age sites across Island Southeast Asia are geared toward supporting or

Adult sex ratios and partner scarcity among hunter–gatherers: implications for dispersal patterns and the evolution of human sociality

It is argued that in small populations, looking outside of one's local group is necessary to find a mate and that, motivated by ASR imbalance, the alliances formed to facilitate the movement of partners are an important foundation for the human-typical pattern of network formation across local groups.



The geographic distribution of human Y chromosome variation.

Variation on the nonrecombining portion of the human Y chromosome is examined to investigate human evolution during the last 200,000 years, compatible with a variety of hypotheses, including multiple human migrations and range expansions.

Dispersion of human Y chromosome haplotypes based on five microsatellites in global populations.

Analysis of microsatellite loci from the nonrecombining portion of the human Y chromosome in 15 diverse human populations shows that most populations have the same set of the most frequent alleles at these loci, indicating a recent common ancestry and/or extensive male migration during human evolutionary history.

Analysis of molecular variance (AMOVA) of Y-chromosome-specific microsatellites in two closely related human populations.

The analysis of seven Y-chromosome-specific microsatellite loci revealed a high level of polymorphism in two closely related human populations, allowing the characterization of the level of genetic distinctiveness of supposedly inbred or isolated populations and discrimination even between closely related populations.

Polynesian genetic affinities with Southeast Asian populations as identified by mtDNA analysis.

Polynesian genetic affinities to populations of Asia were studied using mtDNA markers. A total of 1,037 individuals from 12 populations were screened for a 9-bp deletion in the intergenic region

Genetic affinities of oceanic populations based on RFLP and haplotype analysis of genetic loci on three chromosomes.

The results indicate that Micronesians and Polynesians are derived from populations in Southeast Asia and that they originated independently of the Melanesian populations.

mtDNA and language support a common origin of Micronesians and Polynesians in Island Southeast Asia.

Data indicate extensive gene flow throughout much of Micronesia, but substantial isolation in other Pacific regions, although recent advancements in the understanding of intentional voyaging within Remote Oceania have challenged the existence of the "myth of the primitive isolate".

A pre-Columbian Y chromosome-specific transition and its implications for human evolutionary history.

The data suggest a single origin of linguistically diverse native Americans with subsequent haplotype differentiation within radiating indigenous populations as well as post-Columbian European and African gene flow.

The origins of the Polynesians: an interpretation from mitochondrial lineage analysis.

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.

A novel measure of genetic distance for highly polymorphic tandem repeat loci.

A measure of genetic distance, DSW, which is appropriate for the analysis of highly polymorphic DNA loci, and the applicability of DSW to evolutionary analysis is demonstrated by reconstructing the relationships among eight human populations using 14 microsatellite and STR loci.

An ancient common origin of aboriginal Australians and New Guinea highlanders is supported by alpha-globin haplotype analysis.

The alpha-globin haplotype composition of an aboriginal tribe from central Australia, to address some of the ambiguities of previous studies, suggests that much of the original diversity was lost in a population bottleneck prior to or during the early colonization of Sahul and that subsequent recovery of diversity has been accompanied by the generation of new haplotypes.
