According to historical sources, ancient Hungarians were made up of seven allied tribes and the fragmented tribes that split off from the Khazars, and they arrived from the Eastern European steppes to conquer the Carpathian Basin at the end of the ninth century AD. Differentiating between the tribes is not possible based on archaeology or history, because the Hungarian Conqueror artifacts show uniformity in attire, weaponry, and warcraft. We used Y-STR and SNP analyses on male Hungarian… Expand

Early medieval genetic data from Ural region evaluated in the light of archaeological evidence of ancient Hungarians
TLDR
This study describes maternal and paternal lineages of 36 individuals from these regions and nine Hungarian Conquest period individuals from today’s Hungary, as well as shallow shotgun genome data from the Trans-Uralic Uyelgi cemetery, and demonstrates the genetic connection between Trans-, Cis- Ural and the Carpathian Basin on various levels.

Genetic evidence suggests a sense of family, parity and conquest in the Xiongnu Iron Age nomads of Mongolia
TLDR
Using a fine-scale approach (haplotype instead of haplogroup-level information), Scytho-Siberians are proposed as ancestors of the Xiongnu and Huns as their descendants and a woman was of especially high status within this family. Expand
Evaluation of the Ion AmpliSeq™ PhenoTrivium Panel: MPS-Based Assay for Ancestry and Phenotype Predictions Challenged by Casework Samples
TLDR
It is concluded that the combination of the obtained predictions of phenotype, biogeographical ancestry, and male lineage can serve as a potential lead in challenging police investigations such as cold cases or cases with no suspect. Expand

Genetic structure of the early Hungarian conquerors inferred from mtDNA haplotypes and Y-chromosome haplogroups in a small cemetery
TLDR
It is revealed that a significant portion of the Hungarians probably originated from a long ago consolidated gene pool in Central Asia-South Siberia, which still persists in modern Hungarians. Expand
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
Comparison of maternal lineage and biogeographic analyses of ancient and modern Hungarian populations.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that significant genetic differences exist between the ancient and recent Hungarian-speaking populations, and no genetic continuity is seen. Expand
Y-chromosome haplogroups from Hun, Avar and conquering Hungarian period nomadic people of the Carpathian Basin
TLDR
Hun, Avar and conquering Hungarian nomadic groups arrived into the Carpathian Basin from the Eurasian Steppes and significantly influenced its political and ethnical landscape, supporting historical sources that report identity of the two groups. Expand
Maternal Genetic Ancestry and Legacy of 10th Century AD Hungarians
The ancient Hungarians originated from the Ural region in today's central Russia and migrated across the Eastern European steppe, according to historical sources. The Hungarians conquered theExpand
Y-chromosomal connection between Hungarians and geographically distant populations of the Ural Mountain region and West Siberia
TLDR
This work reconstructs the phylogeny of N3a4-Z1936 clade by using 33 high-coverage Y-chromosomal sequences and estimates the coalescent times of its sub-clades and shows the presence of N2a3-B539 lineages among Hungarians and in the populations from Ural Mountain region, including Ob-Ugric-speakers from West Siberia who are geographically distant but linguistically closest to Hungarians.

Y‐Chromosome Analysis of Ancient Hungarian and Two Modern Hungarian‐Speaking Populations from the Carpathian Basin
The Hungarian population belongs linguistically to the Finno‐Ugric branch of the Uralic family. The Tat C allele is an interesting marker in the Finno‐Ugric context, distributed in all theExpand
Testing Central and Inner Asian admixture among contemporary Hungarians.
Historically, the Carpathian Basin was the final destination for many nomadic peoples who migrated westward from Inner and Central Asia towards Europe. Proto-Hungarians (Steppe Magyars) were amongExpand
MtDNA and Y chromosome polymorphisms in Hungary: inferences from the palaeolithic, neolithic and Uralic influences on the modern Hungarian gene pool
TLDR
The results suggest that the influence of Magyars on the Hungarian gene pool has been very low through both females and males and the Hungarian language could be an example of cultural dominance. Expand
Y-chromosome diversity in the Kalmyks at the ethnical and tribal levels
TLDR
The genetic results indicate that paternal gene flow from East Europeans to the Kalmyks is very little, despite their cohabitation in the North Caspian Steppe during the last 380 years. Expand
