One hundred nineteen individuals classified as White, living in different localities of the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, were studied in relation to the HVS‐I region of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). The male fraction of the sample (N = 74) was also tested for seven Y‐chromosome polymorphisms. In a specific population (Veranópolis), a city characterized by a large influence of the Italian immigration of the 19th century, the results from the maternal and paternal sides indicated almost… Expand
Genetic signatures of parental contribution in black and white populations in Brazil
TLDR
The findings emphasize the need to consider in Brazil, despite some general trends, a notable heterogeneity in the pattern of admixture dynamics within and between populations/groups. Expand
Y‐chromosome genetic variation in Rio De Janeiro population
TLDR
The vast majority of the present Rio de Janeiro male gene pool is of European extraction, while the original Amerindian lineages are residual and much less frequent than the sub‐Saharan component resulting from the slave trade. Expand
Revisiting the Genetic Ancestry of Brazilians Using Autosomal AIM-Indels
TLDR
This study performed an enhanced reassessment of the genetic ancestry of ~1,300 Brazilians characterised for 46 autosomal Ancestry Informative Markers (AIMs), establishing the basis for the effective application of an autosomal AIM panel in forensic casework and clinical association studies within the highly admixed Brazilian populations. Expand
mtDNA ancestry of Rio de Janeiro population, Brazil
TLDR
The high proportion of African mtDNA lineages in the population of Rio de Janeiro is in accordance with studies related to other Brazilian states and in close agreement with historical records which indicate that the admixture population of Brazil is the resulting of interethnic asymmetry crosses between individuals from those population groups. Expand
Male lineage strata of Brazilian population disclosed by the simultaneous analysis of STRs and SNPs.
TLDR
The combined analysis of the Y-STRs and Y-SNPs proved to be a good strategy to predict population sub-structure, which should be taken into account when delineating forensic database strategies for Y chromosome haplotypes. Expand
Ancestry evaluation of Sub Saharan male descendant population in Rio de Janeiro inferred by analysis of mitochondrial DNA
Abstract The Brazilian population derives from Native Americans, Europeans, mainly Portugueses, and Africans, mostly Bantu speakers who were brought to the country as slaves between the 16th and 19thExpand
Mitochondrial DNA diversity in a population from Santa Catarina (Brazil): predominance of the European input
TLDR
Analysis of the entire mitochondrial DNA control region emerges as a valuable tool for forensic genetic purposes in this highly admixed population, an attribute common to several present-day Latin American populations. Expand
Analysis of paternal lineages in Brazilian and African populations
TLDR
The absence of a significant Sub-Saharan African male component resulting from the slave trade, and the low frequency in Amerindian ancestry Y-lineages in the Manaus and Ribeirão Preto population samples are in accordance with the accentuated gender asymmetry in admixture processes that has been systematically reported in colonial South American populations.

Niger-Congo speaking populations and the formation of the Brazilian gene pool: mtDNA and Y-chromosome data.
We analyzed sequence variation in the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) hypervariable segment I (HVS-I) from 201 Black individuals from two Brazilian cities (Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre), and comparedExpand
A systematic scoping review of the genetic ancestry of the Brazilian population
TLDR
The aim of this study was to overview the genetic ancestry estimates for different Brazilian geographic regions and analyze factors involved in these estimates, indicating that the ancestry estimates are influenced by the type of molecular marker and the sampling method. Expand

The phylogeography of Brazilian Y-chromosome lineages.
TLDR
DNA polymorphisms in the nonrecombining portion of the Y-chromosome are examined to investigate the contribution of distinct patrilineages to the present-day white Brazilian population, which agrees with the known history of the peopling of Brazil since 1500. Expand
Genetics, surnames, grandparents' nationalities, and ethnic admixture in southern Brazil - do the patterns of variation coincide?
TLDR
Based on the four data sets, the most general finding was a tendency for a northeast-southwest separation of the populations studied, consistent with historical records. Expand
The ancestry of Brazilian mtDNA lineages.
TLDR
The mtDNA pool of present-day Brazilians clearly reflects the imprints of the early Portuguese colonization process (involving directional mating), as well as the recent immigrant waves (from Europe) of the last century. Expand
Historical genetics: Spatiotemporal analysis of the formation of the Brazilian population
TLDR
The estimated relative proportions of the above‐indicated continental contributions showed intermediate values between those obtained with uniparental (mtDNA, Y‐chromosome) data, and a higher percentage of European heritage as compared to previous autosome results. Expand
Color and genomic ancestry in Brazilians
TLDR
The data suggest that in Brazil, at an individual level, color, as determined by physical evaluation, is a poor predictor of genomic African ancestry, estimated by molecular markers. Expand
Diversity of mtDNA lineages in Portugal: not a genetic edge of European variation
TLDR
It is hypothesised that the recent Black African slave trade could have been the mediator of most of the L sequence inputs, while the population movement associated with the Muslim rule of Iberia has predominantly introduced U6 lineages. Expand
Genetic demography of Antioquia (Colombia) and the Central Valley of Costa Rica
TLDR
The genetic similarity of the populations from Antioquia and the CVCR together with differences in LD between them should be exploitable for the identification and fine mapping of shared disease-related gene variants. Expand

TLDR
Admixture analyses indicate that the ancestral contributions of mtDNA lineages from Scandinavia to the populations of Iceland, Orkney, the Western Isles, and the Isle of Skye are 37.5%, 35. Expand

TLDR
