Genomic Insights Into the Unique Demographic History and Genetic Structure of Five Hmong-Mien-Speaking Miao and Yao Populations in Southwest China
The sharing allele patterns showed that studied populations had a strong genetic affinity with ancient and modern groups from southern and southeastern East Asia, suggesting the possibility of genetic admixture between Hmong-Mien people and recent southward Sino-Tibetan-related populations.
Genetic Admixture History and Forensic Characteristics of Guizhou Sui People Inferred From Autosomal Insertion/Deletion and Genome-Wide Single-Nucleotide Polymorphisms
Results of principal component analysis (PCA), STRUCTURE, and phylogenetic trees showed that Guizhou Sui had a close genetic relationship with geographically close Tai-Kadai and Hmong-Mien people and genomic analysis based on the Fst and f4-statistics suggested a sex-biased influence in Sui people.


Genomic Insights into the Formation of Human Populations in East Asia
The deep population history of East Asia remains poorly understood due to a lack of ancient DNA data and sparse sampling of present-day people1,2. We report genome-wide data from 166 East Asians
Validating earliest rice farming in the Indonesian Archipelago
Preserved ancient botanical evidence in the form of rice phytoliths has confirmed that people farmed domesticated rice in the interior of Sulawesi Island, Indonesia, by at least 3,500 years ago, helping to resolve a mystery about one of the region’s major events in natural and cultural history.
Ancient genomes from northern China suggest links between subsistence changes and human migration
55 ancient genomes from the YR, WLR, and Amur River regions are presented to suggest a link between changes in subsistence strategy and human migration, and fuel the debate about archaeolinguistic signatures of past human migration.
Ancient DNA indicates human population shifts and admixture in northern and southern China
Genetic differentiation in this region was higher in the past than the present, which reflects a major episode of admixture involving northern East Asian ancestry spreading across southern East Asia after the Neolithic, thereby transforming the genetic ancestry of southern China.
Extensive Ethnolinguistic Diversity in Vietnam Reflects Multiple Sources of Genetic Diversity
It is found that Vietnamese ethnolinguistic groups harbor multiple sources of genetic diversity that likely reflect different sources for the ancestry associated with each language family, including Austro-Asiatic groups that shifted to Austronesian languages during the past 2,500 years.
A review on the spread of prehistoric agriculture from southern China to mainland Southeast Asia
The origins and spread of agriculture was one of the milestones in human history. When and how prehistoric agriculture spread to mainland Southeast Asia is highly concerned, which contributed to the
The paternal and maternal genetic history of Vietnamese populations
It is found that isolation, coupled with limited contact involving some groups, has been the major factor influencing the genetic structure of Vietnamese populations, and that there is substantial genetic diversity that is not represented by the Kinh.
The prehistory of a Friction Zone: first farmers and hunters-gatherers in Southeast Asia
The prime-mover for the arrival of the Neolithic in Island Southeast Asia is thought to be the expansion of rice farmers speaking an Austronesian language and coming from the north (see Spriggs,
