Abstract Background Mongolian populations are widely distributed geographically, showing abundant ethnic diversity with geographic and tribal differences. Aim To infer the genetic substructure, admixture and ancient genetic sources of Mongolians together with Kazakhs Subjects and methods We genotyped more than 690,000 genome-wide SNPs from 33 Mongolian and Chinese Kazakh individuals and compared these with both ancient and present-day Eurasian populations using Principal Component Analysis (PCA… 

Genomic Insights Into the Admixture History of Mongolic- and Tungusic-Speaking Populations From Southwestern East Asia

It is confirmed that Guizhou Manchus and Mongolians derived approximately half of the ancestry from their northern ancestors and the other half from southern Indigenous East Asians, which confirmed the admixture events were mediated via the Mongolians Empire expansion during the formation of the Yuan dynasty.

Genomic Insights Into the Genetic Structure and Natural Selection of Mongolians

It is demonstrated that the former western ancestry detected in modern Mongolian could be recently traced back to a historic period in accordance with the historical record about the westward expansion of the Mongol empire.

The Genetic Structure and East-West Population Admixture in Northwest China Inferred From Genome-Wide Array Genotyping

Supporting evidence is provided that the flourish transcontinental communication between East and West Eurasia played a vital role in the genetic formation of northwest Chinese populations.

Demographic model and biological adaptation inferred from the genome-wide SNP data reveal tripartite origins of southernmost Chinese Huis

The results found that SYH people were genetically different from the northern Chinese Hui people and harbored a close genomic affinity with indigenous Vietnamese but a distinct relationship with Cham, which confirmed the hypothesis of documented recent historical migration from CV and assimilation with Hainan indigenous people.

Genomic Insights into the Demographic History of Southern Chinese

It is found that the previously described ‘Southern East Asian’ or ‘Yangtze River Farmer’ lineage is monophyletic but not homogeneous, comprising four regionally differentiated sub-ancestries, and that the earliest living branching among East Asian-related populations is First Americans.

The Heart of Silk Road “Xinjiang,” Its Genetic Portray, and Forensic Parameters Inferred From Autosomal STRs

Genetic distances, principal component analysis (PCA), STRUCTURE analysis, and the phylogenetic tree showed that genetic affinity among studied populations is consistent with linguistic, ethnic, and geographical classifications.

Different matrilineal contributions to genetic structure of ethnic groups in the silk road region in china.

Direct evidence supporting the suggestion that Central Asia is the location of genetic admixture of the East and the West is provided, with the highest frequency present in Uygur and Uzbek samples, and no western Eurasian type was found in Han Chinese samples from the same place.

Genomic Analysis of Natural Selection and Phenotypic Variation in High-Altitude Mongolians

High-density SNP array data demonstrate that DU Mongolians share genetic ancestry with other Mongolian as well as Tibetan populations, specifically in genomic regions related with adaptation to high altitude.

Reconstructing genetic history of Siberian and Northeastern European populations

Siberia and Western Russia are home to over 40 culturally and linguistically diverse indigenous ethnic groups. Yet, genetic variation of peoples from this region is largely uncharacterized. We

The Genome of a Mongolian Individual Reveals the Genetic Imprints of Mongolians on Modern Human Populations

The analyses demonstrate that the genetic impacts of Mongolians likely resulted from the expansion of the Mongolian Empire in the 13th century and will be of great help in further explorations of modern human evolution and genetic causes of diseases/traits specific to Mongolia.

Genomic analysis of Andamanese provides insights into ancient human migration into Asia and adaptation

The footprints of adaptive selection in the genomes of the Andamanese show that the characteristic distinctive phenotypes of this population do not reflect an ancient African origin but instead result from strong natural selection on genes related to human body size.

Quantitating and Dating Recent Gene Flow between European and East Asian Populations

The results indicate that most genetic admixtures occurred between 2,400 and 310 years ago and show the admixtures proportions to be highly correlated with geographic locations, with the highest admixture proportions observed in Central Asia and the lowest in East Asia and Northwestern Europe.

Ancient Admixture in Human History

A suite of methods for learning about population mixtures are presented, implemented in a software package called ADMIXTOOLS, that support formal tests for whether mixture occurred and make it possible to infer proportions and dates of mixture.

Mapping Human Genetic Diversity in Asia

The results suggest that there may have been a single major migration of people into Asia and a subsequent south-to-north migration across the continent, and that genetic ancestry is strongly correlated with linguistic affiliations as well as geography.

Inferring Admixture Histories of Human Populations Using Linkage Disequilibrium

A new weighted LD statistic is presented that can be used to infer mixture proportions as well as dates with fewer constraints on reference populations than previous methods and can uncover phylogenetic relationships among populations by comparing weighted LD curves obtained using a suite of references.
