To investigate the structure of Y chromosome haplogroups R-M207 and Q-M242 in human populations of North Asia, we have performed high-resolution genotyping using both single nucleotide polymorphisms and short tandem repeat (STR)-based approaches of 121 M207- and M242-derived samples from 885 males of 16 ethnic groups of Siberia and East Asia. As a result, the following Y chromosome haplogroups were revealed: R1b1b1-M73 (2.0%), R1b1b2-M269 (0.7%), R2-M124 (1.1%), Q1a*-MEH2 (0.5%), Q1a2-M25 (0.1… Expand
Dispersals of the Siberian Y-chromosome haplogroup Q in Eurasia
TLDR
It is found that the subclades of haplogroup Q continued to disperse from Central Asia and Southern Siberia during the past 10,000 years. Expand
Continental Origin for Q Haplogroup Patrilineages in Argentina and Paraguay
TLDR
The aim of present work was to identify the continental origin of the remaining Q lineages, and analyzed the STR haplotypes for the samples and compared them with haplotypes described by other authors for the rest of the world. Expand
Y chromosome haplotype diversity in Mongolic-speaking populations and gene conversion at the duplicated STR DYS385a,b in haplogroup C3-M407
TLDR
Results of locus-specific sequencing suggest that the action of gene conversion is a more likely explanation for origin of homoallelic 11,11 combination, and analysis of median networks of Y-STR haplotypes demonstrates that at least two gene conversion events can be revealed. Expand
Autosomal and uniparental portraits of the native populations of Sakha (Yakutia): implications for the peopling of Northeast Eurasia
TLDR
The high-resolution phylogenetic dissection of mtDNA and Y-chromosome haplogroups as well as analysis of autosomal SNP data suggests that Sakha was colonized by repeated expansions from South Siberia with minor gene flow from the Lower Amur/Southern Okhotsk region and/or Kamchatka. Expand
Phylogeography of Y-chromosome haplogroup Q1a1a-M120, a paternal lineage connecting populations in Siberia and East Asia
TLDR
A clear pattern of the origin and diffusion process of haplogroup Q1a1a-M120 is provided, as well as the role of this paternal lineage during the formation of ancient Huaxia populations and modern Han populations are provided. Expand
Y-Chromosome Diversity in Modern Bulgarians: New Clues about Their Ancestry
TLDR
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
Paternal origin of Paleo-Indians in Siberia: insights from Y-chromosome sequences
TLDR
The analysis suggests that the in situ differentiation of Q-M242 in Central Eurasia and South Siberia region gave rise to numerous sub-lineages older than 15.3 kya, and the founding of Paleo-Indian paternal lineages is part of the great Q1-L53 diffusion throughout the Eurasia after the Last Glacial Maximum. Expand
Y-chromosome analysis reveals genetic divergence and new founding native lineages in Athapaskan- and Eskimoan-speaking populations
TLDR
The data suggest that Canadian Eskimoan- and Athapaskan-speaking populations are genetically distinct from one another and that the formation of these groups was the result of two population expansions that occurred after the initial movement of people into the Americas. Expand
The First Peopling of South America: New Evidence from Y-Chromosome Haplogroup Q
TLDR
The data confirm a southern Siberian origin of ancestral populations that gave rise to Paleo-Indians and the differentiation of both Native American Q founding lineages in Beringia and support their concomitant arrival in Mesoamerica. Expand
Post-last glacial maximum expansion of Y-chromosome haplogroup C2a-L1373 in northern Asia and its implications for the origin of Native Americans.
TLDR
The results support the argument from ancient DNA analyses that the direct ancestor group of Native Americans is an admixture of "Ancient Northern Siberians and Paleolithic communities from the Amur region, which appeared during the post-LGM era, rather than ancient populations in greater Beringia, or an adjacent region, before the LGM.

Contrasting patterns of Y-chromosome variation in South Siberian populations from Baikal and Altai-Sayan regions
TLDR
The population of the Baikal region demonstrates the prevalence of Central/Eastern Asian lineages, whereas in the populations of Altai and Sayan regions the highest paternal contribution resulted from Eastern European descent is revealed. Expand
Excavating Y-chromosome haplotype strata in Anatolia
TLDR
This comprehensive characterization of Y-chromosome heritage addresses many multifaceted aspects of Anatolian prehistory, including: the most frequent haplogroup, J, splits into two sub-clades, one of which (J2) shows decreasing variances with increasing latitude, compatible with a northward expansion. Expand
A major Y-chromosome haplogroup R1b Holocene era founder effect in Central and Western Europe
TLDR
Within the M412 dichotomy, the major S116 sub-clade shows a frequency peak in the upper Danube basin and Paris area with declining frequency toward Italy, Iberia, Southern France and British Isles, and more complex pre-Neolithic scenarios remain possible for the L23(xM412) components in Southeast Europe and elsewhere. Expand
High Levels of Y-Chromosome Differentiation among Native Siberian Populations and the Genetic Signature of a Boreal Hunter-Gatherer Way of Life
TLDR
The Siberian pattern of reduced haplogroup diversity within populations combined with high levels of differentiation among populations may be a general feature characteristic of indigenous groups that have small effective population sizes and that have been isolated for long periods of time. Expand
Diversity of Mitochondrial DNA Lineages in South Siberia
TLDR
The considerable substructure within South Siberian haplogroups B, F, and G, together with the high degree of haplogroup C and D diversity revealed there, allows us to conclude that South Siberians carry the genetic imprint of early‐colonization phase of Eurasia. Expand
Phylogeographic analysis of mitochondrial DNA in northern Asian populations.
TLDR
The findings indicate that the southern Siberian mtDNA pool harbors several lineages associated with the Late Upper Paleolithic and/or early Neolithic dispersals from both eastern Asia and southwestern Asia/southern Caucasus. Expand
Ancient DNA provides new insights into the history of south Siberian Kurgan people
TLDR
The data indicate that at the Bronze and Iron Age timeframe, south Siberians were blue (or green)-eyed, fair-skinned and light-haired people and that they might have played a role in the early development of the Tarim Basin civilization. Expand
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. Expand
Y-chromosome evidence for differing ancient demographic histories in the Americas.
TLDR
Age estimates based on Y-chromosome microsatellite diversity place the initial settlement of the American continent at approximately 14,000 years ago, in relative agreement with the age of well-established archaeological evidence. Expand
High-resolution SNPs and microsatellite haplotypes point to a single, recent entry of Native American Y chromosomes into the Americas.
TLDR
The hypothesis of a single migration of a polymorphic founding population better fits the expanded database and traced both lineages to a probable ancestral homeland in the vicinity of the Altai Mountains in Southwest Siberia. Expand
