Ancient Paleo-DNA of Pre-Copper Age North-Eastern Europe : Establishing the Migration Traces of R 1 a 1 Y-DNA Haplogroup

  title={Ancient Paleo-DNA of Pre-Copper Age North-Eastern Europe : Establishing the Migration Traces of R 1 a 1 Y-DNA Haplogroup},
  author={A. Semenov and Vlad Bulat},
The work considers the problems of paleogenetics and anthropology connected with problem of pre-Copper Age after-Glacial repopulation process of the North-Eastern Europe. The unified data, obtained in various laboratories in 2010-2016, collects a certain amount of the ancient mtDNA and Y-DNA haplogroup samples of the considered period, what allows establishing the connection between some of them, comparing them with the data of neighboring regions, and attributing them to certain migration… Expand

Ancient Paleo-DNA of Pre-Copper Age North-Eastern Europe: Establishing the Migration Traces of R1a1 Y-DNA Haplogroup Part 2. Baikal Episode and Indo-Uralic Framework
The work considers the problems of paleogenetics and anthropology connected with preCopper Age after-Glacial repopulation process of the North-Eastern Europe. The unified data, obtained in variousExpand
Wild Boar (Sus scrofa) Teeth from a Female Burial in Yuzhniy Oleniy Ostrov, Northwestern Russia (c. 6200 cal BC) – Local Rarities or Transported Goods?
ABSTRACT Tooth pendants of European elk, Eurasian beaver and brown bear are the most common artefact type in graves at Late Mesolithic Yuzhniy Oleniy Ostrov on Lake Onega, northwestern Russia. In oneExpand
Prehistoric Pendants as Instigators of Sound and Body Movements: A Traceological Case Study from Northeast Europe, c. 8200 cal. bp
In the Late Mesolithic graves of Yuzhniy Oleniy Ostrov, northwest Russia, large numbers of Eurasian elk (Alces alces) incisors have been found. These teeth, for the most part fashioned into portableExpand
Let’s groove: attachment techniques of Eurasian elk (Alces alces) tooth pendants at the Late Mesolithic cemetery Yuzhniy Oleniy Ostrov (Lake Onega, Russia)
The manufacture techniques of elk teeth, in the collection of the Peter the Great Museum of Anthropology and Ethnography, St Petersburg, indicates that the groove types as such had no connection with particular ornaments, garments or hanging positions. Expand


Ancient DNA Reveals Prehistoric Gene-Flow from Siberia in the Complex Human Population History of North East Europe
Comparing genetic data from ancient and modern-day populations revealed significant changes in the mitochondrial makeup of North East Europeans through time, which suggests an important role of post-Mesolithic migrations from Western Europe and subsequent population replacement/extinctions. Expand
Possible North-Eastern Connections of the R1a1-populations of Corded Ware Culture According to the Archaeologic and Paleogenetic Data
Our new work considers the problems of paleogenetics, archeology and antropology connected with origins of Corded Ware culture and early migration of Y-DNA R1 carriers. This work considers the SecondExpand
Population affinities of Neolithic Siberians: a snapshot from prehistoric Lake Baikal.
The results suggest that the Lake Baikal region experienced a significant depopulation event during the sixth millennium BP, and was reoccupied by a new immigrant population some 800 years later. Expand
Massive migration from the steppe is a source for Indo-European languages in Europe
We generated genome-wide data from 69 Europeans who lived between 8,000-3,000 years ago by enriching ancient DNA libraries for a target set of almost four hundred thousand polymorphisms. EnrichmentExpand
Mitochondrial Genome Sequencing in Mesolithic North East Europe Unearths a New Sub-Clade within the Broadly Distributed Human Haplogroup C1
Past human mitochondrial diversity that has not been observed in modern-day populations so far is discovered, including the Yuzhnyy Oleni Ostrov C1 haplotype, which represents a new distinct clade, provisionally coined “C1f”. Expand
The western and eastern roots of the Saami--the story of genetic "outliers" told by mitochondrial DNA and Y chromosomes.
A high-resolution phylogenetic analysis of Saami genetic heritage was undertaken in a comprehensive context, through use of maternally inherited mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and paternALLY inherited Y-chromosomal variation, and it was shown that the "Saami motif" variant of mtDNA haplogroup U5b is present in a large area outside Scandinavia.

Eight thousand years of natural selection in Europe
The first genome-wide scan for selection using ancient DNA is reported, capitalizing on the largest genome- wide dataset yet assembled: 230 West Eurasians dating to between 6500 and 1000 BCE, including 163 with newly reported data. Expand
2000 Years of Parallel Societies in Stone Age Central Europe
Analysis of palaeogenetic and isotopic data from Neolithic human skeletons from the Blätterhöhle burial site in Germany indicates that the descendants of Mesolithic people maintained a foraging lifestyle in Central Europe for more than 2000 years after the arrival of farming societies. Expand
Y-chromosomal evidence for a limited Greek contribution to the Pathan population of Pakistan
In pairwise comparisons between the Greeks and the three Pakistani populations using genetic distance measures sensitive to recent events, the lowest distances were observed between the Greece and the Pathans, providing strong evidence for a European origin for a small proportion of the Pathan Y chromosomes.

Genetic Discontinuity Between Local Hunter-Gatherers and Central Europe’s First Farmers
Together, these analyses provide persuasive evidence that the first farmers were not the descendants of local hunter-gatherers but immigrated into central Europe at the onset of the Neolithic. Expand
