Haplogroup R1a1-M198 is a major clade of Y chromosomal haplogroups which is distributed all across Eurasia. To this date, many efforts have been made to identify large SNP-based subgroups and migration patterns of this haplogroup. The origin and spread of R1a1 chromosomes in Eurasia has, however, remained unknown due to the lack of downstream SNPs within the R1a1 haplogroup. Since the discovery of R1a1-M458, this is the first scientific attempt to divide haplogroup R1a1-M198 into multiple SNP… Expand
The phylogenetic and geographic structure of Y-chromosome haplogroup R1a
TLDR
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
Subdividing Y-chromosome haplogroup R1a1 reveals Norse Viking dispersal lineages in Britain
TLDR
Comparison of modern DNA with recently available ancient DNA data supports the interpretation that two sub-lineages of hg R1a1 spread with the Vikings from peninsular Scandinavia. Expand
Multiplex genotyping assays for fine‐resolution subtyping of the major human Y‐chromosome haplogroups E, G, I, J, and R in anthropological, genealogical, and forensic investigations
TLDR
A set of genotyping assays for fine‐resolution subtyping of haplogroups E, G, I, J, and R, which make up the bulk of Western Eurasian and African Y chromosomes are introduced and allow for enhanced Y‐chromosome lineage discrimination. Expand
The Major Y-Chromosome Haplotype XI - Haplogroup R1a in Eurasia
More than 6600 unrelated males from Eurasia were analysed by molecular hybridization experiments for the p49a, f Taq I polymorphisms. A total of 846 subjects (12.7%), belonging to haplotype XI/R1aExpand
Y-SNP L1034: limited genetic link between Mansi and Hungarian-speaking populations
TLDR
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
Genetic and Cultural Reconstruction of the Migration of an Ancient Lineage
TLDR
Cultural metrics are presented demonstrating that these LPKSTR lineages retained distinct family practices with respect to literacy, religious practice, and emigration not shared with orthodox Brahmins of canonical geographic origin within the same community, despite centuries of intermarriage. Expand
Y-STR Haplogroup Diversity in the Jat Population Reveals Several Different Ancient Origins
TLDR
This study demonstrated that the origins of Jats can be clarified by identifying their Y-chromosome haplogroups and tracing their genetic markers on the Y-DNA haplogroup tree. Expand
Updating the Y-chromosomal phylogenetic tree for forensic applications based on whole genome SNPs.
TLDR
The usefulness of AMY-tree is demonstrated in the process of checking the quality of the present Y-chromosomal tree and it accentuates the difficulties to enlarge this tree based on only WGS methods. Expand
Y-DNA genetic evidence reveals several different ancient origins in the Brahmin population
  • David G Mahal
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Molecular genetics and genomics : MGG
  • 2020
TLDR
The study identified the deep ancient origins of Brahmins by tracing their Y-chromosome haplogroups and genetic markers on the Y-DNA phylogenetic tree and confirmed that the progenitors of this group emerged from at least 12 different geographic regions of the world. Expand
Indigenous and foreign Y-chromosomes characterize the Lingayat and Vokkaliga populations of Southwest India.
TLDR
The results revealed that the majority of the Lingayat and Vokkaliga paternal gene pools are composed of four Y-chromosomal haplogroups (H, L, F* and R2) that are frequent in the Indian subcontinent, suggesting gene flow from neighboring south Indian populations and West Asia. Expand

Separating the post-Glacial coancestry of European and Asian Y chromosomes within haplogroup R1a
TLDR
The diversity and frequency profiles of M458 suggest its origin during the early Holocene and a subsequent expansion likely related to a number of prehistoric cultural developments in the region, and the virtual absence of M 458 chromosomes outside Europe speaks against substantial patrilineal gene flow from East Europe to Asia, including to India, at least since the mid-Holocene. Expand
The Indian origin of paternal haplogroup R1a1* substantiates the autochthonous origin of Brahmins and the caste system
TLDR
Ongoing observation of the highest frequency of Y-haplogroup R1a1* in Brahmins hinted at its presence as a founder lineage for this caste group, and extended phylogenetic analyses of the pooled dataset supported the autochthonous origin of R 1a1 lineage in India and a tribal link to IndianBrahmins.

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 genetic landscape reshaped by recent events: Y-chromosomal insights into central Asia.
TLDR
Two particularly striking features were seen: an extremely high level of Y-chromosomal differentiation between geographically close populations, accompanied by low diversity within some populations, and the occurrence of several recent bottlenecks or founder events. Expand
A Perspective on the History of the Iberian Gypsies Provided by Phylogeographic Analysis of Y‐Chromosome Lineages
TLDR
Among the Portuguese Gypsies the proportion of introgression from host populations is higher than observed in other groups, a fact which is somewhat unexpected since the arrival of the Roma to Portugal is documented to be more recent than in Central or East Europe. 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
Polarity and temporality of high-resolution y-chromosome distributions in India identify both indigenous and exogenous expansions and reveal minor genetic influence of Central Asian pastoralists.
TLDR
The reappraisal indicates that pre-Holocene and Holocene-era--not Indo-European--expansions have shaped the distinctive South Asian Y-chromosome landscape. Expand
The western and eastern roots of the Saami--the story of genetic "outliers" told by mitochondrial DNA and Y chromosomes.
TLDR
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.

The Indian origin of paternal haplogroup R1a1* substantiates the autochthonous origin of Brahmins and the caste system
It has come to our attention that the data in the Table 1 of the above article contained incorrect numbers. The number of samples (N) given against mentioned population groups should read as: PunjabExpand
Genetic structure of the paternal lineage of the Roma people.
TLDR
An analysis of Y-chromosomal markers from five Roma and two non-Roma populations is provided to investigate the genetic relatedness of the Roma population groups to one another, and to gain further understanding of their likely Indian origins, the genetic contribution of non-roma males to the Roma populations, and the early history of their splits and migrations in Europe.
