We examined genetic variation in nine populations of Dagestan using 11 autosomal Alu insertion polymorphisms to investigate the genetic structure of indigenous groups and to assess their genetic relationship with world populations. Genetic differentiation among mountain inhabitants (Gsr = 2%) is comparable to that for European populations. Traces of genetic drift are detectable only for endogamous and small Ando-Dido-speaking ethnic groups, and they coincide with the most linguistically diverse… CONTINUE READING
