The structure of the Buryat gene pool has been studied based on the composition and frequency of Y-chromosome haplogroups in eight geographically distant populations. Eleven haplogroups have been found in the Buryat gene pool, two of which are the most frequent (N1c1 and C3d). The greatest difference in haplogroup frequencies was fixed between western and eastern Buryat samples. The evaluation of genetic diversity based on haplogroup frequencies revealed that it has low values in most of the…

THE NANAI CLAN SAMAR: THE STRUCTURE OF GENE POOL BASED ON Y-CHROMOSOME MARKERS1
TLDR
Genetic distances and their multidimensional scaling demonstrate marked affinities of Samar clansmen with Yakuts, Khakas, and certain groups of Buryats, suggesting a common origin.
Distribution of East Eurasian Y-Chromosome and Mitochondrial DNA Haplogroups across Eurasia: Insights into the Genetic Ancestry of Bulgarians
TLDR
The present study confirms the nonexistence of a close Y-chromosomal or mtDNA link between proto-Bulgarians on the one hand and Altaic and Caucasus populations on the other.
Y chromosome haplotype diversity in Mongolic-speaking populations and gene conversion at the duplicated STR DYS385a,b in haplogroup C3-M407
TLDR
Results of locus-specific sequencing suggest that the action of gene conversion is a more likely explanation for origin of homoallelic 11,11 combination, and analysis of median networks of Y-STR haplotypes demonstrates that at least two gene conversion events can be revealed.
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.
Between Lake Baikal and the Baltic Sea: genomic history of the gateway to Europe
TLDR
This project has patched the hole in the genetic map of Eurasia by demonstrating complexity of genetic structure of Northern Eurasians, existence of East-West and North-South genetic gradients, and assessed different inputs of ancient populations into modern populations.
Genetic trail for the early migrations of Aisin Gioro, the imperial house of the Qing dynasty
TLDR
The results suggest that the Aisin Gioro clan may be descendants of ancient populations in Transbaikal region and closely related to origin of current Daur populations and explore the prehistoric activities of populations lacking historical records and archeological evidences.
Characteristics of Genomic Distribution of Runs of Homozygosity in the Indigenous Population of Northern Eurasia
TLDR
This work used genotype data on 242 179 autosomal SNPs of 876 individuals to search for regions with runs of homozygosity of more than 1 Mb and found that for Siberian populations, the number ofruns and their total length was higher than for other populations.
Forensic and population genetic characteristics of 62 X chromosome SNPs revealed by multiplex PCR and MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry genotyping in 4 North Eurasian populations.
TLDR
The developed multiplex set of X chromosome SNPs can be a useful tool for population genetic studies and for forensic identity and kinship testing.
Genetic polymorphism of CYP1A1 and CYP2D6 in populations of Buryats, Teleuts and Russians of Eastern Siberia
TLDR
A high-frequency occurrence of CYP1A1*2C (2455G) among Buryats and teleuts may be indicative of a higher population-wide risk of diseases influenced by technogenic pollutants – substrates of cYP1a1.
A Comparative Analysis of Chinese Historical Sources and Y-DNA Studies with Regard to the Early and Medieval Turkic Peoples
In the past 10 years, geneticists have investigated the genetic variation of modern Turkic populations as well as ancient DNA of the Xiongnu and others. The accumulated findings of these surveys,

Gene-pool structure of Tuvinians inferred from Y-chromosome marker data
TLDR
It was demonstrated that, in Tuvinians, haplogroup N1c1 was the most heterogeneous in haplotype profile and consisted of three different haplotype clusters, demonstrating considerable differences of western population from the rest of the Tuva populations.

Comparative characteristics of the gene pool of Teleuts inferred from Y-chromosomal marker data
TLDR
The results of the comparative analysis suggested that the gene pool of Bachat Teleuts was formed on the basis of at least two heterogeneous genetic components, probably associated with ancient Turkic and Samoyedic ethnic components.
Genetic diversity of the chromosome X in aboriginal Siberian populations: The structure of linkage disequilibrium and haplotype phylogeography of the ZFX locus
TLDR
Correlation analysis using Mantel’s test did not detect significant correlations between the genetic distance matrix and the matrices of geographic, linguistic, and anthropological differences, although the correlation with the anthropological matrix was the highest.
The origin of Yakuts: Analysis of the Y-chromosome haplotypes
TLDR
The results suggest a significant contribution of the local Paleolithic component to the Y-chromosome gene pool of Yakuts and Ethnogenetic reconstructions were inferred from the diversity and phylogeography of the N3a haplogroup in Siberia.
Phylogeography of the Y‐chromosome haplogroup C in northern Eurasia
To reconstruct the phylogenetic structure of Y‐chromosome haplogroup (hg) C in populations of northern Eurasia, we have analyzed the diversity of microsatellite (STR) loci in a total sample of 413

TLDR
The data on the composition and frequencies of Y-chromosome haplogroups in the sample studied substantially supplement the existing picture of the male lineage distribution in the Eastern Slav population.
Gene pool differences between Northern and Southern Altaians inferred from the data on Y-chromosomal haplogroups
TLDR
The data of factor analysis, variance analysis, cluster analysis, and phylogenetic analysis point to substantial genetic differentiation of Northern and Southern Altaians.

TLDR
Factor and cluster analysis, as well as AMOVA, suggest that the Khakass gene pool is structured by territory and subethnic groups.
