The House of Aisin Gioro, the imperial clan of Qing dynasty (1644–1911), affected the history of China and the formation of Manchu ethnicity greatly. However, owing to the lack of historical records and archeological evidences, the origin of the House of Aisin Gioro remains ambiguous. To clarify the origin of Aisin Gioro clan, we conducted whole Y-chromosome sequencing on three samples and Y-single-nucleotide polymorphism (Y-SNP) genotyping on other four samples beside those reported in… 
Relating Clans Ao and Aisin Gioro from northeast China by whole Y-chromosome sequencing
This revision evidently improved the resolving power of Y-chromosome phylogeny in northeast Asia, deepening the understanding of the origin of these two families, even the Mongolic-speaking population.
Molecular genealogy of Tusi Lu’s family reveals their paternal relationship with Jochi, Genghis Khan’s eldest son
The molecular genealogy of Northwestern China’s Lu clan, who claim to be the descendants of the sixth son of Genghis Khan, Toghan, is surveyed and results indicate that haplogroup C2b1a1b1-F1756 might be another candidate of the true Y lineage of Genghai Khan.
Whole-sequence analysis indicates that the Y chromosome C2*-Star Cluster traces back to ordinary Mongols, rather than Genghis Khan
It is concluded that haplogroup C2*-ST is one of the founder paternal lineages of all Mongolic-speaking populations, and direct evidence of an association between C2-ST and Genghis Khan has yet to be discovered.
Whole mitochondrial genome analysis of the Daur ethnic minority from Hulunbuir in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region of China
The whole mtDNA data generated in the present study will augment the existing mtDNA database and provide genetic links between the Daur population and the aborigine peoples from Siberia and the Amur-Ussuri Region.
Whole sequence analysis indicates a recent southern origin of Mongolian Y-chromosome C2c1a1a1-M407
It is concluded that C2c1a1a-M407 in Mongolic-speaking populations has originated from northeastern Asia and probably represents the genetic relationships between ancient Oyrats, modern Kalmyks, Mongolians, and Buryats.
Paternal origin of Paleo-Indians in Siberia: insights from Y-chromosome sequences
The analysis suggests that the in situ differentiation of Q-M242 in Central Eurasia and South Siberia region gave rise to numerous sub-lineages older than 15.3 kya, and the founding of Paleo-Indian paternal lineages is part of the great Q1-L53 diffusion throughout the Eurasia after the Last Glacial Maximum.
Genetic diversity and phylogenetic characteristics of Chinese Tibetan and Yi minority ethnic groups revealed by non-CODIS STR markers
Genotyping with 21 non-CODIS autosomal STRs suggested that these 21 STRs are highly polymorphic and informative in the Sichuan Tibetan and Yi, which are suitable for population genetics and forensic applications.
Genomic Insight Into the Population Admixture History of Tungusic-Speaking Manchu People in Northeast China
The first batch of genome-wide data of genotyping approximate 700,000 single-nucleotide polymorphisms in 93 Manchu individuals collected from northeast China found that Liaoning Manchus have a close genetic relationship and significant admixture signal with northern Han Chinese, which is in line with the cluster patterns in the haplotype-based results.
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.


Afghan Hindu Kush: Where Eurasian Sub-Continent Gene Flows Converge
The pattern of genetic variation indicates that the people of Afghanistan are made up of a mosaic of components representing various geographic regions of Eurasian ancestry, and that the Hindu Kush is a confluence of gene flows rather than a source of distinctly autochthonous populations that have arisen in situ.
Global distribution of Y-chromosome haplogroup C reveals the prehistoric migration routes of African exodus and early settlement in East Asia
The phylogeographic distribution pattern of Hg C supports a single coastal ‘Out-of-Africa’ route by way of the Indian subcontinent, which eventually led to the early settlement of modern humans in mainland Southeast Asia.
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
Gene pool of Buryats: Clinal variability and territorial subdivision based on data of Y-chromosome markers
The evaluation of the genetic differentiation of the examined samples using an analysis of molecular variance (AMOVA) shows that the Buryat gene pool is highly differentiated by haplotype frequencies.
The Y-chromosome C3* Star-Cluster Attributed to Genghis Khan's Descendants is Present at High Frequency in the Kerey Clan from Kazakhstan
The data obtained suggest that the Kerey clan appears to be the largest known clan in the world descending from a common Y-chromosome ancestor.
Investigating the Prehistory of Tungusic Peoples of Siberia and the Amur-Ussuri Region with Complete mtDNA Genome Sequences and Y-chromosomal Markers
It is demonstrated that whereas the North Tungusic Evenks and Evens show evidence of shared ancestry both in the maternal and in the paternal line, this signal has been attenuated by genetic drift and differential gene flow with neighbouring populations, with isolation by distance further shaping the maternal genepool of the Evens.
Y Chromosomes of 40% Chinese Descend from Three Neolithic Super-Grandfathers
It is found that all the Paleolithic divergences were binary; however, three strong star-like Neolithic expansions at ∼6 kya (thousand years ago) indicates that ∼40% of modern Chinese are patrilineal descendants of only three super-grandfathers at that time, suggesting that the main patrilinesal expansion in China occurred in the Neolithic Era and might be related to the development of agriculture.
Polarity and temporality of high-resolution y-chromosome distributions in India identify both indigenous and exogenous expansions and reveal minor genetic influence of Central Asian pastoralists.
The reappraisal indicates that pre-Holocene and Holocene-era--not Indo-European--expansions have shaped the distinctive South Asian Y-chromosome landscape.
The genetic legacy of the Mongols.
The Y-chromosomal lineage identified is carried by likely male-line descendants of Genghis Khan, and it is proposed that it has spread by a novel form of social selection resulting from their behavior.
Y chromosomal STR polymorphism in northern Chinese populations.
It is found that the eight populations had a close relationship and Xibo had a northeast origination by MDS and the phylogenetic tree, and all populations showed a high level of haplotype diversity, with low inter-population variance as measured by an analysis of molecular variance.
