Medieval era encounters of nomadic groups of the Eurasian Steppe and largely sedentary East Europeans had a variety of demographic and cultural consequences. Amongst these outcomes was the emergence of the Lipka Tatars—a Slavic-speaking Sunni-Muslim minority residing in modern Belarus, Lithuania and Poland, whose ancestors arrived in these territories via several migration waves, mainly from the Golden Horde. Our results show that Belarusian Lipka Tatars share a substantial part of their gene… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Mitogenomic data indicate admixture components of Central-Inner Asian and Srubnaya origin in the conquering Hungarians
TLDR
Phylogenetic results reveal that more than one third of the Conqueror maternal lineages were derived from Central-Inner Asia and their most probable ultimate sources were the Asian Scythians and Asian Huns, giving support to the Hungarian Hun tradition. Expand
Exploring European ancestry among the Kalash population: a mitogenomic perspective
TLDR
Analysis of mitogenome data of 34 Kalash samples together with 6 075 individuals from across Eurasia indicated exclusive western Eurasian origin of the Kalash people, represented by eight haplogroups, including J2b1a7a and R0a5a, which displayed in situ differentiations in theKalash and could be traced to the Mediterranean region. Expand
The genomic impact of European colonization of the Americas
TLDR
A genome-wide dataset is compiled and a high degree of complexity underlying the genetic contribution of European and African populations in North and South America is revealed, identifying previously unreported sources related to Italy, the Middle East and to specific regions of Africa. Expand
The Genomic Impact of European Colonization of the Americas
TLDR
A genome-wide dataset is compiled and haplotype-based methods applied to investigate how historical movements from outside the New World affected the genetic structure, the admixture profile, the demographic history, and the sex-biased gene-flow dynamics of the Americas. Expand
Mitogenomic data indicate admixture components of Asian Hun and Srubnaya origin in the Hungarian Conquerors
TLDR
Phylogenetic and population genetic analysis indicated that more than one third of the Conqueror maternal lineages were derived from Central-Inner Asia and their most probable ultimate sources were the Asian Huns. Expand
Genetic history of Bashkirian Mari and Southern Mansi ethnic groups in the Ural region
TLDR
Overall, the Hungarian, Mansi, and Bashkirian Mari populations have a much more complex genetic history than the traditional linguistic model or history would suggest and may have been acquired directly or indirectly during the more or less known their history. Expand
Polymorphism of Mitochondrial DNA in Population of Siberian Tatars from Barabinsk Forest Steppe
TLDR
The presence of the haplogroup B in the mitochondrial DNA genetic pool of Siberian Tatars brings them together with Turks that came from regions of Altai and Central Kazakhstan and inhabited the Western Siberian forest steppe in the 6th–9th centuries. Expand
Diversity and Structure of Mitochondrial Gene Pools of Slavs in the Ethnogenetic Aspect
TLDR
It has been demonstrated that Bayesian analysis of large data sets on the variability of whole mitogenomes in the Slavs enabled the identification of between-regional differences in the dynamics of the effective population size over time for Europe. Expand
Mitogenomic diversity and differentiation of the Buryats
TLDR
The AMOVA and MDS analyses results imply to a strong genetic similarity between the Buryats and eastern Asian populations of Chinese and Japanese, suggesting their origin on the basis of common maternal ancestry components. Expand
Genetic Characterization of Balkars and Karachays Using mtDNA Data
TLDR
The principal component analysis showed the remoteness of Baksans with respect to the first principal component from the other subethnic groups of Balkars, and the main mtDNA pool in the studied populations was represented by West Eurasian haplogroups. Expand

Uniparental Genetic Heritage of Belarusians: Encounter of Rare Middle Eastern Matrilineages with a Central European Mitochondrial DNA Pool
TLDR
The phylogeographic analyses reveal that two mitochondrial DNA lineages, N3 and N1a3, might mark distinct events of matrilineal gene flow to Europe: during the mid-Holocene period and around the Pleistocene- Holocene transition, respectively. Expand
The Genetic Legacy of the Expansion of Turkic-Speaking Nomads across Eurasia
TLDR
The results indicate historical admixture among Turkic peoples, and the recent shared ancestry with modern populations in SSM supports one of the hypothesized homelands for their nomadic Turkic and related Mongolic ancestors. Expand
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. Expand
Genetic Heritage of the Balto-Slavic Speaking Populations: A Synthesis of Autosomal, Mitochondrial and Y-Chromosomal Data
TLDR
The data suggest that genetic diversity of the present-day Slavs was predominantly shaped in situ, and a pattern of distribution of segments identical by descent between groups of East-West and South Slavs suggests shared ancestry or a modest gene flow between those two groups, which might derive from the historic spread of Slavic people. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA signals of late glacial recolonization of Europe from near eastern refugia.
TLDR
It is reported that a substantial, perhaps predominant, signal from mitochondrial haplogroups J and T, previously thought to have spread primarily from the Near East into Europe with the Neolithic population, may in fact reflect dispersals during the Late Glacial period, ∼19-12 thousand years (ka) ago. 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
Western Eurasian ancestry in modern Siberians based on mitogenomic data
TLDR
The phylogeographic analysis implies that the western Eurasian founders, giving rise to Siberian specific subclades, may trace their ancestry only to the early and mid-Holocene, though some of genetic lineages may traceTheir ancestry back to the end of Last Glacial Maximum. Expand
Afghan Hindu Kush: Where Eurasian Sub-Continent Gene Flows Converge
TLDR
The pattern of genetic variation indicates that the people of Afghanistan are made up of a mosaic of components representing various geographic regions of Eurasian ancestry, and that the Hindu Kush is a confluence of gene flows rather than a source of distinctly autochthonous populations that have arisen in situ. Expand
Two sources of the Russian patrilineal heritage in their Eurasian context.
TLDR
The present study of the variation of the Y chromosome pool of ethnic Russians shows that the patrilineages within the pre-Ivan the Terrible historic borders of Russia have two main distinct sources, one of which antedates the linguistic split between West and East Slavonic-speaking people and is common for the two groups. 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.
