The origin of contemporary Europeans remains contentious. We obtained a genome sequence from Kostenki 14 in European Russia dating from 38,700 to 36,200 years ago, one of the oldest fossils of anatomically modern humans from Europe. We find that Kostenki 14 shares a close ancestry with the 24,000-year-old Mal’ta boy from central Siberia, European Mesolithic hunter-gatherers, some contemporary western Siberians, and many Europeans, but not eastern Asians. Additionally, the Kostenki 14 genome… Expand
A genome sequence from a modern human skull over 45,000 years old from Zlatý kůň in Czechia
TLDR
A genome generated from the skull of a female individual from Zlatý kůň, Czechia is analysed and it is found that she belonged to a population that appears to have contributed genetically neither to later Europeans nor to Asians, and is one of the earliest Eurasian inhabitants following the expansion out of Africa.

An early modern human from Romania with a recent Neanderthal ancestor
TLDR
DNA from a 37,000–42,000-year-old modern human from Peştera cu Oase, Romania is analysed, finding that on the order of 6–9% of the genome of the Oase individual is derived from Neanderthals, more than any other modern human sequenced to date. Expand
The genetic history of Ice Age Europe
Modern humans arrived in Europe ~45,000 years ago, but little is known about their genetic composition before the start of farming ~8,500 years ago. We analyze genome-wide data from 51 Eurasians fromExpand
Paleolithic DNA from the Caucasus reveals core of West Eurasian ancestry
TLDR
It is shown that the Dzudzuana population contributed the majority of the ancestry of post-Ice Age people in the Near East, North Africa, and even parts of Europe, thereby becoming the largest single contributor of ancestry of all present-day West Eurasians. Expand
40,000-Year-Old Individual from Asia Provides Insight into Early Population Structure in Eurasia
TLDR
The Tianyuan individual is more related to present-day and ancient Asians than he is to Europeans, but he shares more alleles with a 35,000-year-old European individual than he shares with other ancient Europeans, indicating that the separation between early Europeans and early Asians was not a single population split.

TLDR
Present-day Europeans are largely the product of this Bronze Age collision of steppe pastoralists with Neolithic farmers, ignoring the long-distance migrations of the modern era. Expand
A genomic dating tool resolves the origins of ancient Eurasian genomes
TLDR
The Temporal Population Structure is the first DNA-based dating method for ancient genomes ranging from the Upper Palaeolithic to modern-day samples and applied to 1559 ancient Europeans, Asians, and Caucasus individuals and to 2117 modern worldwide individuals, showing that TPS predictions for dated skeletons align with their known dates and correctly account for kin relationships. Expand
Massive migration from the steppe was a source for Indo-European languages in Europe
We generated genome-wide data from 69 Europeans who lived between 8,000–3,000 years ago by enriching ancient DNA libraries for a target set of almost 400,000 polymorphisms. Enrichment of theseExpand
Denisovan ancestry and population history of early East Asians
TLDR
It is shown that this individual was a female member of a modern human population that, following the split between East and West Eurasians, experienced substantial gene flow from West Eurasia, and both she and a 40,000-year-old individual from Tianyuan outside Beijing carried genomic segments of Denisovan ancestry. Expand
Initial Upper Palaeolithic humans in Europe had recent Neanderthal ancestry
TLDR
Genome-wide data from three individuals dated to between 45,930 and 42,580 years ago from Bacho Kiro Cave, Bulgaria are presented, confirming that the first European modern humans mixed with Neanderthals and suggesting that such mixing could have been common. Expand

Population Genomic Analysis of Ancient and Modern Genomes Yields New Insights into the Genetic Ancestry of the Tyrolean Iceman and the Genetic Structure of Europe
TLDR
Using whole-genome sequencing data, it is confirmed that the Iceman is, indeed, most closely related to Sardinians and it is shown that this relationship extends to other individuals from cultural contexts associated with the spread of agriculture during the Neolithic transition, in contrast to individuals from a hunter-gatherer context.

Ancient human genomes suggest three ancestral populations for present-day Europeans
TLDR
It is shown that the great majority of present-day Europeans derive from at least three highly differentiated populations: West European Hunter-Gatherers (WHG), who contributed ancestry to all Europeans but not to Near Easterners; Ancient North Eurasians (ANE); and Early European Farmers (EEF), who were mainly of Near Eastern origin but also harbored WHG-related ancestry.

Genome sequence of a 45,000-year-old modern human from western Siberia
We present the high-quality genome sequence of a ∼45,000-year-old modern human male from Siberia. This individual derives from a population that lived before—or simultaneously with—the separation ofExpand
Upper Palaeolithic Siberian genome reveals dual ancestry of Native Americans
TLDR
The findings reveal that western Eurasian genetic signatures in modern-day Native Americans derive not only from post-Columbian admixture, as commonly thought, but also from a mixed ancestry of the First Americans. Expand
DNA analysis of an early modern human from Tianyuan Cave, China
TLDR
The nuclear DNA sequences determined from this early modern human reveal that the Tianyuan individual derived from a population that was ancestral to many present-day Asians and Native Americans but postdated the divergence of Asians from Europeans. Expand
Derived immune and ancestral pigmentation alleles in a 7,000-year-old Mesolithic European
TLDR
An approximately 7,000-year-old Mesolithic skeleton discovered at the La Braña-Arintero site in León, Spain, is sequenceed to retrieve a complete pre-agricultural European human genome, providing evidence that a significant number of derived, putatively adaptive variants associated with pathogen resistance in modern Europeans were already present in this hunter-gatherer. Expand
Resurrecting Surviving Neandertal Lineages from Modern Human Genomes
TLDR
Analyses of surviving archaic lineages suggest that there were fitness costs to hybridization, admixture occurred both before and after divergence of non-African modern humans, and Neandertals were a source of adaptive variation for loci involved in skin phenotypes. Expand
A Revised Timescale for Human Evolution Based on Ancient Mitochondrial Genomes
TLDR
This work uses mitochondrial genome sequences from ten securely dated ancient modern humans spanning 40,000 years as calibration points for the mitochondrial clock, thus yielding a direct estimate of the mitochondrial substitution rate and implies a separation of non-Africans from the most closely related sub-Saharan African mitochondrial DNAs that occurred less than 62-95 kya.

The genetic prehistory of the New World Arctic
TLDR
The long-term genetic continuity of the Paleo-Eskimos gene pool and lack of evidence of Native American admixture suggest that the Saqqaq and Dorset people were largely living in genetic isolation after entering the New World. Expand
Ancient human genome sequence of an extinct Palaeo-Eskimo
TLDR
This genome sequence of an ancient human obtained from ∼4,000-year-old permafrost-preserved hair provides evidence for a migration from Siberia into the New World some 5,500 years ago, independent of that giving rise to the modern Native Americans and Inuit. Expand
