Multiple questions relating to contributions of cultural and demographical factors in the process of human geographical dispersal remain largely unanswered. India, a land of early human settlement and the resulting diversity is a good place to look for some of the answers. In this study, we explored the genetic structure of India using a diverse panel of 78 males genotyped using the GenoChip. Their genome-wide single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) diversity was examined in the context of various… Expand
Application of geographic population structure (GPS) algorithm for biogeographical analyses of populations with complex ancestries: a case study of South Asians from 1000 genomes project
TLDR
The findings reflect that the GPS approach is useful but likely overtly dependent on the relative proportions of admixture in the reference populations for determination of the biogeographical origins of test individuals. Expand
Genetic characterisation of the North-West Indian populations: analysis of mitochondrial DNA control region variations
TLDR
This preliminary study investigated the mitochondrial DNA control region variations in diverse ethnic groups of North-West India for which population data is insufficient and ascertained high gene diversity in the studied maternal lineages. Expand
Genetic perspective of uniparental mitochondrial DNA landscape on the Punjabi population, Pakistan
TLDR
The vast array of mtDNA variants displayed in this study suggested that the haplogroup composition radiates signals of extensive genetic conglomeration, population admixture and demographic expansion that was equipped with diverse origin, whereas matrilineal gene pool was phylogeographically homogenous across the Punjab.

Evolution and Implications of Genomic Diversity on “Human Kind” in India
Abstract India, the second continent successfully occupied by Homo sapiens sapiens, is known for its enormous diversities. This was the result of early migrations, autochthonous expansion, andExpand
Ancient Human Migrations to and through Jammu Kashmir- India were not of Males Exclusively
TLDR
High maternal diversity and phylogenetic analyses suggest that the migrations post-Pleistocene were not strictly paternal, as described in the literature, and highlight the need for an extensive study of the endogamous populations of the region to unravel many facts and find links in the peopling of India. Expand
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. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA diversity in the Khattak and Kheshgi of the Peshawar Valley, Pakistan
TLDR
These mtDNA data allow us to begin reconstructing the origins of the Khattak and Kheshgi and describe their complex interactions with populations from the surrounding regions. Expand
Folklore Versus Genetics: A Mitochondrial DNA Investigation About the Origin and Antiquity of the Adi Sub-tribes of Arunachal Pradesh, India
TLDR
The results based on mtDNA is in agreement with Adi folklore accounts of their historical warfare conflicts and tribal feuds which resulted in their fission–fusion population structure among the Adi regional populations. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA variation in the Sindh population of Pakistan
TLDR
The high nucleotide diversity and the low random match probability of the mtDNA control region make it a beneficial tool for forensic discrimination as well as useful to the evolutionary biologist. Expand
Cultural diffusion of Indo-Aryan languages into Bangladesh: A perspective from mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
The authors' results implied a cultural diffusion of the Indo-Aryan languages into Bangladesh, with a high proportion of South Asian components in this group of Bengali speakers. Expand

A prehistory of Indian Y chromosomes: evaluating demic diffusion scenarios.
TLDR
The Y-chromosomal data consistently suggest a largely South Asian origin for Indian caste communities and therefore argue against any major influx, from regions north and west of India, of people associated either with the development of agriculture or the spread of the Indo-Aryan language family. Expand
Population Differentiation of Southern Indian Male Lineages Correlates with Agricultural Expansions Predating the Caste System
TLDR
The utility of detailed local genetic studies within India, without prior assumptions about the importance of Varna rank status for population grouping, is highlighted to obtain new insights into the relative influences of past demographic events for the population structure of the whole of modern India. Expand
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.
TLDR
The reappraisal indicates that pre-Holocene and Holocene-era--not Indo-European--expansions have shaped the distinctive South Asian Y-chromosome landscape. Expand
Genetic Imprints of Pleistocene Origin of Indian Populations: A Comprehensive Phylogeographic Sketch of Indian Y-Chromosomes
Abstract Paleoanthropological evidence indicates that modern humans reached South Asia in one of the first dispersals out of Africa, which were later followed by migrations from different parts ofExpand
Ethnic India: a genomic view, with special reference to peopling and structure.
We report a comprehensive statistical analysis of data on 58 DNA markers (mitochondrial [mt], Y-chromosomal, and autosomal) and sequence data of the mtHVS1 from a large number of ethnically diverseExpand
Population genetic structure in Indian Austroasiatic speakers: the role of landscape barriers and sex-specific admixture.
TLDR
It is proposed that AA speakers in India today are derived from dispersal from southeast Asia, followed by extensive sex-specific admixture with local Indian populations, strongly supporting the first of the two hypotheses. Expand
Separating the post-Glacial coancestry of European and Asian Y chromosomes within haplogroup R1a
TLDR
The diversity and frequency profiles of M458 suggest its origin during the early Holocene and a subsequent expansion likely related to a number of prehistoric cultural developments in the region, and the virtual absence of M 458 chromosomes outside Europe speaks against substantial patrilineal gene flow from East Europe to Asia, including to India, at least since the mid-Holocene.

Mitochondrial DNA analysis reveals diverse histories of tribal populations from India
TLDR
Analysis of the first hypervariable region of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) control region in 752 individuals from 17 tribal and four nontribal groups from the Indian subcontinent suggested that caste and tribal groups are genetically similar with respect to mtDNA variation. Expand
Phylogeography of mtDNA haplogroup R7 in the Indian peninsula
TLDR
Among Indo-Europeans, and particularly in Dravidians, the haplogroup is, despite its lower frequency, phylogenetically more divergent, while among the Munda speakers only one sub-clade of R7, i.e. R7a1, can be observed. Expand
Population and genomic lessons from genetic analysis of two Indian populations
TLDR
It is shown that there is limited genetic marker portability from available genetic resources such as HapMap or the 1,000 Genomes Project to Indian populations, which also present an excess of private rare variants, and tagSNPs show a high level of portability between the two Indian population, in contrast to the common belief that North and South Indian populations are genetically very different.
