Vietnam features extensive ethnolinguistic diversity and occupies a key position in Mainland Southeast Asia (MSEA). Yet, the genetic diversity of Vietnam remains relatively unexplored, especially with genome-wide data, because previous studies have focused mainly on the majority Kinh group. Here we analyze newly-generated genome-wide SNP data for the Kinh and 21 additional ethnic groups in Vietnam, encompassing all five major language families in MSEA. In addition to analyzing the allele and… Expand
Indian genetic heritage in Southeast Asian populations
TLDR
The finding suggests that a massive migration of Indian people in the past was responsible for the spread of Indian culture in mainland Southeast Asia, and support for a close genetic affinity between Kra-Dai- and Austronesianspeaking populations, which fits a linguistic hypothesis suggesting cladality of the two language families.

Reconstructing the human genetic history of mainland Southeast Asia: insights from genome-wide data from Thailand and Laos
TLDR
The first detailed insights into the genetic profiles of Thai/Lao ethnolinguistic groups are provided, which should be helpful for reconstructing human genetic history in MSEA and selecting populations for participation in ongoing whole genome sequence and biomedical studies. Expand
Genomic Insight Into the Population Admixture History of Tungusic-Speaking Manchu People in Northeast China
  • Xianpeng Zhang, Guanglin He, +8 authors Youfeng Wen

  • 2021
Manchu is the third-largest ethnic minority in China and has the largest population size among the Tungusic-speaking groups. However, the genetic origin and admixture history of the Manchu people areExpand
Archaeogenomic Distinctiveness of the Isthmo-Colombian Area
TLDR
The authors' analyses reveal that pre-Hispanic demographic changes and isolation events contributed to create the extensive genetic structure currently seen in the area, which is also characterized by a distinctive Isthmo-Colombian Indigenous component. Expand
Genomic Insight Into the Population Structure and Admixture History of Tai-Kadai-Speaking Sui People in Southwest China
  • Xiaoyun Bin, Rui Wang, +14 authors Chuan-Chao Wang

  • Frontiers in Genetics
  • 2021
TLDR
The results revealed that Guangxi and Guizhou SuiPeople showed a strong genetic affinity with populations from southern China and Southeast Asia, especially Tai-Kadai- and Hmong-Mien-speaking populations as well as ancient Iron Age Taiwan Hanben, Gongguan individuals supporting the hypothesis that Sui people came from southernChina originally.

Exploring models of human migration to the Japanese archipelago using genome-wide genetic data
The origins of people in the Japanese archipelago are of long-standing interest among anthropologists, archeologists, linguists, and historians studying the history of Japan. While theExpand
New insights from the combined discrimination of modern/ancient genome-wide shared alleles and haplotypes: Differentiated demographic history reconstruction of Tai-Kadai and Sinitic people in South China
TLDR
The spatiotemporal demographic history of southern China is revealed by analyzing newly generated genome-wide data of 70 southeastern mainland TK speakers including Dong, Gelao and Bouyei and 45 southwestern Han Chinese together with comprehensive modern/ancient reference datasets and discovered genetic differentiation among TK people from southern China and Southeast Asia and obvious substructures between northern and southern inland Chinese TKPeople.

Population inter-connectivity over the past 120,000 years explains distribution and diversity of Central African hunter-gatherers
TLDR
The results reveal that CAHG stem from a deep history of partially connected populations that allowed the coexistence of relatively large effective population sizes and local differentiation, with important implications for the evolution of genetic and cultural diversity in Homo sapiens. Expand
Peopling History of the Tibetan Plateau and Multiple Waves of Admixture of Tibetans Inferred From Both Ancient and Modern Genome-Wide Data
  • Guanglin He, Mengge Wang, +8 authors Hui-Yuan Yeh
  • Medicine
  • Frontiers in Genetics
  • 2021
Archeologically attested human occupation on the Tibetan Plateau (TP) can be traced back to 160 thousand years ago (kya) via the archaic Xiahe people and 30∼40 kya via the Nwya Devu anatomicallyExpand
Peopling of Tibet Plateau and multiple waves of admixture of Tibetans inferred from both modern and ancient genome-wide data
TLDR
Closer genetic connection between ancient-modern highland Tibetans and lowland island/coastal Neolithic northern East Asians was identified, reflecting the main ancestry of high-altitude Tibeto-Burman speakers originated from the ancestors of Houli/Yangshao/Longshan ancients in the middle and lower Yellow River basin, consistent with the common North-China origin of Sino-Tibetan language and dispersal pattern of millet farmers.

The paternal and maternal genetic history of Vietnamese populations
TLDR
It is found that isolation, coupled with some limited contact involving some groups, has been the major factor influencing the genetic structure of Vietnamese populations, and that there is substantial genetic diversity that is not represented by the Kinh. Expand
Complete human mtDNA genome sequences from Vietnam and the phylogeography of Mainland Southeast Asia
TLDR
Network of major MSEA haplogroups emphasize the overall distinctiveness of sequences from Taiwan, in keeping with previous studies that suggested at most a minor impact of the Austronesian expansion from Taiwan on MSEA. Expand
New insights from Thailand into the maternal genetic history of Mainland Southeast Asia
TLDR
An additional 560 mtDNA genomes from 22 groups are added, with a focus on the TK-speaking central Thai people and the Sino-Tibetan speaking Karen, finding extensive diversity, including 62 haplogroups not reported previously from this region. Expand
Phylogeographic and genome-wide investigations of Vietnam ethnic groups reveal signatures of complex historical demographic movements
TLDR
Autosomal SNPs consistently point to important historical gene flow within mainland SEA, and add support to a main admixture event occurring between Chinese and a southern Asian ancestral composite (mainly represented by the Malay). Expand
Tracing the Austronesian footprint in Mainland Southeast Asia: a perspective from mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
The results suggested that the origin of the Cham was likely a process of assimilation of massive local Mon-Khmer populations accompanied with language shift, thus indicating that the Austronesian diffusion in MSEA was mainly mediated by cultural diffusion, at least from the matrilineal genetic perspective.

Reconstructing Austronesian population history in Island Southeast Asia
TLDR
It is shown that all sampled Austronesian groups harbour ancestry that is more closely related to aboriginal Taiwanese than to any present-day mainland population, suggesting that either there was once a substantial Austro-Asiatic presence in Island Southeast Asia, orAustronesian speakers migrated to and through the mainland, admixing there before continuing to western Indonesia.
