The genetic composition of the Russian population was investigated by analyzing both mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and Y-chromosome loci polymorphisms that allow for the different components of a population gene pool to be studied, depending on the mode of DNA marker inheritance. mtDNA sequence variation was examined by using hypervariable segment I (HVSI) sequencing and restriction analysis of the haplogroup-specific sites in 325 individuals representing 5 Russian populations from the European… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Russian ethnic history inferred from mitochondrial DNA diversity.
TLDR
The results indicate that the formation of the genetic diversity currently observed among Russians can be traced to the second half of the first millennium A.D., the time of the colonization of the East European Plain by the Slavic tribes.
Mitochondrial DNA Variability in the Czech Population, with Application to the Ethnic History of Slavs
TLDR
It is suggested that the presence of East Eurasian mtDNA haplotypes is not an original feature of the gene pool of the proto-Slavs but rather may be mostly a consequence of admixture with Central Asian nomadic tribes, who migrated into Central and Eastern Europe in the early Middle Ages.
Mitochondrial DNA Variability in Slovaks, with Application to the Roma Origin
TLDR
It is demonstrated here that the Roma‐specific M‐lineages observed in gene pools of different Slavonic populations (Slovaks, Poles and Russians), belong to Indian‐specific haplogroups M5a1 and M35.
Mitogenomic diversity in Russians and Poles.
African DNA Lineages in the Mitochondrial Gene Pool of Europeans
TLDR
It has been demonstrated that alleles typical of Europeans are characteristic of the autosomal genotypes of these Russian individuals.
Structure and Forming of Mitochondrial Gene Pool of Russian Population of Eastern Europe
TLDR
The results of molecular dating suggest that the mitochondrial subgroups characteristic of Russians and Slavs in general began to arise 2700–3500 years ago and a rapid increase in population sizes occurred immediately after its decline 4000–5000 years ago.
On the origin of Mongoloid component in the mitochondrial gene pool of Slavs
TLDR
It was demonstrated that in terms of their structure, mitochondrial gene pools of Czechs and other Slavic populations were practically indistinguishable, and the highest frequency of Mongoloid component was detected in the mitochondrial gene pool of Russian populations from the Russian North and the Northwestern region of Russia.
Complete Mitochondrial DNA Analysis of Eastern Eurasian Haplogroups Rarely Found in Populations of Northern Asia and Eastern Europe
TLDR
The findings confirm the previous conclusion that northern Asian maternal gene pool consists of predominantly post- LGM components of eastern Asian ancestry, though some genetic lineages may have a pre-LGM/LGM origin.
Polymorphism of Y-chromosomal microsatellites in Russian population from Southern Federal district of the Russian Federation
TLDR
Despite the high diversity of Y-chromosomal haplotypes in the Russian populations from the south of Russia, analysis of molecular variance (AMOVA) showed the absence of differentiation between the populations, pointing to low among-population differentiation in Y- chromosomal lineages.

Different genetic components in the Norwegian population revealed by the analysis of mtDNA and Y chromosome polymorphisms
TLDR
The genetic composition of the Norwegian population was investigated by analysing polymorphisms associated with both the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and Y chromosome loci in a sample of 74 Norwegian males, showing a noticeable genetic affinity between Norwegians and central Europeans, especially Germans.
Mitochondrial DNA variability in Poles and Russians.
TLDR
The classification of mitochondrial haplotypes revealed the presence of all major European haplogroups, which were characterized by similar patterns of distribution in Poles and Russians and an analysis of the distribution of the control region haplotypes did not reveal any specific combinations of unique mtDNA haplotypes.
Mitochondrial DNA sequence diversity in Russians
Classification of European mtDNAs from an analysis of three European populations.
TLDR
The conclusion that most haplogroups observed in Europe are Caucasoid-specific, and that at least some of them occur at varying frequencies in different Caucasoid populations, is supported.
Phylogeographic differentiation of mitochondrial DNA in Han Chinese.
TLDR
These and other features of the geographical distribution of the mtDNA haplogroups observed in the Han Chinese make an initial Paleolithic colonization from south to north plausible but would suggest subsequent migration events in China that mainly proceeded from north to south and east to west.
Mitochondrial DNA variability in Russians and Ukrainians: Implication to the origin of the Eastern Slavs
TLDR
It is concluded that the Slavonic migrations in early Middle Ages from their putative homeland in central Europe to the east of Europe were accompanied mostly by the same mtDNA types characteristic for the pre‐Slavonic populations of eastern Europe.
Y chromosomal DNA variation and the peopling of Japan.
TLDR
Four loci mapping to the nonrecombining portion of the Y chromosome were genotyped in Japanese populations from Okinawa, the southernmost island of Japan; Shizuoka and Aomori on the main island of Honshu; and a small sample of Taiwanese, confirming the irregular distribution of this polymorphism in Asia.
European Y-chromosomal lineages in Polynesians: a contrast to the population structure revealed by mtDNA.
TLDR
This is the first Y-chromosomal evidence of major European admixture with indigenous Polynesian populations and contrasts sharply with the picture given by mtDNA evidence.
Genetic evidence for a higher female migration rate in humans
TLDR
It is found that Y chromosome variants tend to be more localized geographically than those of mtDNA and the autosomes, and the reduction of variation within populations for Y chromosome single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) is of such magnitude that differences in the effective population sizes of the sexes alone are insufficient to produce the observation.
The Russian Gene Pool: Frequencies of Genetic Markers
TLDR
Frequency distribution of several genetic markers was studied in ethnic Russians from the Moscow, Bryansk, Ryazan', Kostroma, Novgorod, Arkhangel'sk, and Sverdlovsk oblasts and Udmurtiya and showed that the Russian gene pool mostly displays Caucasoid features.
