AbstractHistoric Japanese culture evolved from at least two distinct migrations that originated on the Asian continent. Hunter-gatherers arrived before land bridges were submerged after the last glacial maximum (>12,000 years ago) and gave rise to the Jomon culture, and the Yayoi migration brought wet rice agriculture from Korea beginning ∼2,300 years ago. A set of 81 Y chromosome single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) was used to trace the origins of Paleolithic and Neolithic components of the… Expand

Population Genetics Analysis of the Origin of Modern Japanese
TLDR
Genomic data, as well as genetic data from a single locus or small number of loci, support the hybridisation hypothesis to explain the origin of modern Japanese. Expand
Y Chromosomes of 40% Chinese Descend from Three Neolithic Super-Grandfathers
TLDR
It is found that all the Paleolithic divergences were binary; however, three strong star-like Neolithic expansions at ∼6 kya (thousand years ago) indicates that ∼40% of modern Chinese are patrilineal descendants of only three super-grandfathers at that time, suggesting that the main patrilinesal expansion in China occurred in the Neolithic Era and might be related to the development of agriculture. Expand
Y Chromosome analysis of prehistoric human populations in the West Liao River Valley, Northeast China
TLDR
The results suggest that the prehistoric cultural transitions were associated with immigration from the Yellow River valley and the northern steppe into the West Liao River valley, with a concurrent increase in lineage diversity caused by an influx of immigrants from other populations. Expand
Human genetic diversity in the Japanese Archipelago: dual structure and beyond.
TLDR
The dual-structure model, which is based on craniofacial measurements, proposes that admixture between the Jomon and Yayoi people resulted in current-day Japanese and unveiled the uniqueness of the indigenous Ainu and Ryukyuan people while further demonstrating the genetic substructure within the Mainland Japanese. Expand
A partial nuclear genome of the Jomons who lived 3000 years ago in Fukushima, Japan
TLDR
The findings, based on the first analysis of Jomon nuclear genome sequence data, firmly demonstrate that the modern mainland Japanese resulted from genetic admixture of the indigenous Jomon people and later migrants. Expand
The Himalayas as a directional barrier to gene flow.
TLDR
The results suggest that the Tibetans and Nepalese are in part descendants of Tibeto-Burman-speaking groups originating from Northeast Asia and indicate gene flow from the Indian subcontinent and, in the case of haplogroup R, from Eurasia as well. Expand
Paleolithic Contingent in Modern Japanese: Estimation and Inference using Genome-wide Data
TLDR
This report aimed to infer the origin of Jomon and to estimate its contribution to Japanese by fitting an admixture model with missing data from Jomon to genome-wide data from 94 worldwide populations, and showed the Paleolithic contingent in Japanese had a Northeast Asia origin. Expand
Mapping Human Genetic Diversity on the Japanese Archipelago
The Japanese people are one of the most important populations for studying the origin and diversification of East Asian populations. As an island population, the Japanese's path of migration is aExpand
Y chromosome evidence of earliest modern human settlement in East Asia and multiple origins of Tibetan and Japanese populations
TLDR
It is proposed that D-M174 has a southern origin and its northward expansion occurred about 60,000 years ago, predating the northward migration of other major East Asian lineages. Expand
Inferring the Population Expansions in Peopling of Japan
TLDR
The results suggested that the rapid population expansion acted as a major force in shaping current maternal pool of Japanese, and supported a model for population dynamics in Japan in which the prehistoric population growth initiated in the Middle Jomon Period experienced a smooth and swift transition from Jomon to Yayoi, and then continued through theYayoi Period.

Balinese Y-Chromosome Perspective on the Peopling of Indonesia: Genetic Contributions from Pre-Neolithic Hunter-Gatherers, Austronesian Farmers, and Indian Traders
TLDR
The results indicate that the Austronesian expansion had a profound effect on the composition of the Balinese paternal gene pool and that cultural transmission from India to Bali was accompanied by substantial levels of gene flow. Expand
Evolution and migration history of the Chinese population inferred from Chinese Y-chromosome evidence
TLDR
A West/North-origin hypothesis is tentatively proposed, suggesting that haplogroup O originated in West/ North China and mainly evolved in China and thence spread further throughout eastern Eurasia. Expand
Y chromosomal evidence for the origins of oceanic-speaking peoples.
TLDR
Diversity within the nonrecombining portion of the Y chromosome, which contains within it a relatively simple record of the human past and represents the most informative haplotypic system in the human genome, is assayed. Expand
Genetic Affinities of the Andaman Islanders, a Vanishing Human Population
TLDR
The data indicate that the Andamanese have closer affinities to Asian than to African populations and suggest that they are the descendants of the early Palaeolithic colonizers of Southeast Asia. Expand
Mitochondrial genome variation in eastern Asia and the peopling of Japan.
TLDR
Population-based comparisons confirmed that present-day Japanese have their closest genetic affinity to northern Asian populations, especially to Koreans, which finding is congruent with the proposed Continental gene flow to Japan after the Yayoi period. Expand
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. Expand
A predominantly indigenous paternal heritage for the Austronesian-speaking peoples of insular Southeast Asia and Oceania.
TLDR
Using detailed genealogical study of Y chromosome variation, it is shown that the majority of current Austronesian speakers trace their paternal heritage to Pleistocene settlers in the region, as opposed to more-recent agricultural immigrants. Expand
Melanesian origin of Polynesian Y chromosomes
TLDR
All Polynesian Y chromosomes can be traced back to Melanesia, although some of these Y-chromosome types originated in Asia. Expand
Analyses of genetic structure of Tibeto-Burman populations reveals sex-biased admixture in southern Tibeto-Burmans.
TLDR
The genetic structure of the extant southern Tibeto-Burman (STB) populations were primarily formed by two parental groups: northern immigrants and native southerners, with a bias between male and female lineages. Expand
mtDNA polymorphism in East Asian Populations, with special reference to the peopling of Japan.
TLDR
The results of this study are compatible with the hybridization model on the origin of modern Japanese, and it is suggested that approximately 65% of the gene pool in mainland Japanese was derived from the continental gene flow after the Yayoi Age. Expand
