BackgroundComparisons of maternally-inherited mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and paternally-inherited non-recombining Y chromosome (NRY) variation have provided important insights into the impact of sex-biased processes (such as migration, residence pattern, and so on) on human genetic variation. However, such comparisons have been limited by the different molecular methods typically used to assay mtDNA and NRY variation (for example, sequencing hypervariable segments of the control region for mtDNA… Expand
Maternal ancestry and population history from whole mitochondrial genomes
TLDR
In the era of whole nuclear genome sequencing, mitochondrial genomes are continuing to be informative as a unique tool for the assessment of female-specific aspects of the demographic history of human populations. Expand
Signatures of human European Paleolithic expansion shown by resequencing of non-recombining X-chromosome segments
TLDR
This study demonstrates the potential of the use of X-chromosomal haplotypes on Autosomes and X chromosome, and the utility of the accurate ascertainment of rare variants for inferring human demographic history. Expand
Insights into human genetic variation and population history from 929 diverse genomes
TLDR
Analyses of high-coverage genome sequences from 54 diverse human populations reveal an excess of previously undocumented private genetic variation in southern and central Africa and in Oceania and the Americas, but an absence of fixed, private variants between major geographical regions. Expand
The evolutionary history of grey wolf Y chromosomes
TLDR
The distribution of dogs in a phylogenetic tree of Y chromosome haplotypes supports multiple domestication events, or wolf paternal introgression, starting 29,000 years ago, and the disputed origin of a recently founded population of Scandinavian wolves is addressed. Expand
Inference of sex-specific expansion patterns in human populations from Y-chromosome polymorphism.
TLDR
A set of linked STR and SNP loci from the paternally inherited Y chromosome is analyzed to infer the past demography of 55 African and Eurasian populations, using both the parametric and nonparametric coalescent-based methods implemented in the BEAST application. Expand
Inferring chimpanzee Y chromosome history and amplicon diversity from whole genome sequencing
TLDR
It is observed that the copy-number of Y chromosome amplicons is variable amongst chimpanzees and bonobos, and several lineage-specific patterns are identified, including variable copy- number of the testis-expressed genes RBMY and DAZ. Expand
Regional Differences in the Accumulation of SNPs on the Male-Specific Portion of the Human Y Chromosome Replicate Autosomal Patterns: Implications for Genetic Dating
TLDR
An unbiased estimate of the antiquity of lineages relevant to the genetic history of the human Y chromosome is obtained, in particular, the two deepest nodes of the tree highlight the survival, in Central-Western Africa, of lineage whose coalescence predates the emergence of anatomically modern features in the fossil record. Expand
The ability of human nuclear DNA to cause false positive low-abundance heteroplasmy calls varies across the mitochondrial genome
TLDR
Analysis of the mitochondrial locations of the subsequences shared between nDNA and mtDNA suggested that even very short (36 bases) single-end sequencing reads can be used to identify low-abundance variation in 20.4% of the mitochondria genome, which suggests that the analysis of low-ABundance variations in mitochondria population can be extended to a variety of large data collections.

Contrasting paternal and maternal genetic histories of Thai and Lao populations
TLDR
A contrasting pattern of male and female genetic variation and demographic expansions is found, especially for the hill tribes, Mon, and some major Thai groups, and an effect of post-marital residence pattern on genetic diversity in patrilocal vs. matrilocal groups is detected. Expand
Insights into human genetic variation and population history from 929 diverse genomes
TLDR
The authors' study adds data about African, Oceanian, and Amerindian populations and indicates that diversity tends to result from differences at the single-nucleotide level rather than copy number variation. Expand

Human paternal and maternal demographic histories: insights from high-resolution Y chromosome and mtDNA sequences
TLDR
The results confirm the controversial assertion that genetic differences between human populations on a global scale are bigger for the NRY than for mtDNA and suggest very small ancestral effective population sizes (<100) for the out-of-Africa migration as well as for many human populations. Expand
Genetic evidence for a higher female migration rate in humans
TLDR
It is found that Y chromosome variants tend to be more localized geographically than those of mtDNA and the autosomes, and the reduction of variation within populations for Y chromosome single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) is of such magnitude that differences in the effective population sizes of the sexes alone are insufficient to produce the observation. Expand
Global patterns of human mitochondrial DNA and Y-chromosome structure are not influenced by higher migration rates of females versus males
TLDR
A new strategy to assay Y-chromosome variation is introduced that identifies a high density of single-nucleotide polymorphisms, allows complete sequencing of all individuals rather than relying on predetermined markers and provides direct sequence comparisons with mtDNA. Expand
Sequencing Y Chromosomes Resolves Discrepancy in Time to Common Ancestor of Males Versus Females
TLDR
The findings suggest that, contrary to previous claims, male lineages do not coalesce significantly more recently than female lineages. Expand
A Recent Shift from Polygyny to Monogamy in Humans Is Suggested by the Analysis of Worldwide Y-Chromosome Diversity
TLDR
It is shown that mismatch distributions and tests of mutation/drift equilibrium based on up to 166 Y-chromosome SNPs, in 46 samples from all continents, also fail to support an increase of the male effective population size. Expand
Contrasting patterns of Y chromosome and mtDNA variation in Africa: evidence for sex-biased demographic processes
TLDR
The data suggest that patterns of differentiation and gene flow in Africa have differed for men and women in the recent evolutionary past, and infer that sex-biased rates of admixture and/or language borrowing between expanding Bantu farmers and local hunter-gatherers played an important role in influencing patterns of genetic variation during the spread of African agriculture in the last 4000 years. Expand
Genetic evidence for unequal effective population sizes of human females and males.
TLDR
A pattern that is remarkably consistent across all three populations is an approximately twofold deeper coalescence for mtDNA than for the NRY, which is most consistent with a higher female effective population size. Expand
