To investigate in detail the paternal and maternal demographic histories of humans, we obtained ∼500 kb of non-recombining Y chromosome (NRY) sequences and complete mtDNA genome sequences from 623 males from 51 populations in the CEPH Human Genome Diversity Panel (HGDP). Our results: confirm the controversial assertion that genetic differences between human populations on a global scale are bigger for the NRY than for mtDNA; suggest very small ancestral effective population sizes (<100) for the… 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, although the differences are not as large as previously suggested. Expand
Signatures of human European Palaeolithic expansion shown by resequencing of non-recombining X-chromosome segments
TLDR
This study demonstrates the potential of the use of X-chromosomal haplotype blocks, and the utility of the accurate ascertainment of rare variants for inferring human demographic history. Expand
Population resequencing of European mitochondrial genomes highlights sex-bias in Bronze Age demographic expansions
TLDR
A population-based resequencing of complete mitochondrial genomes in Europe and the Middle East, in 340 samples from 17 populations for which Y-chromosome sequence data are also available, emphasizes the sex-biased nature of recent demographic transitions in Europe. 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
mtDNA diversity in human populations highlights the merit of haplotype matching in gene therapies.
TLDR
Matching the mtDNA haplotypes of the mother and third-party donor in mitochondrial replacement therapies is supported as a means of ameliorating the potentially deleterious results of human mtDNA diversity. Expand
Contrasting maternal and paternal genetic variation of hunter-gatherer groups in Thailand
TLDR
The results indicate that the Malbri do not directly descend from the indigenous negritos, and likely have a recent origin by an extreme founder event from an agricultural group, most likely the Htin or a closely-related group. Expand
Human Y-chromosome variation in the genome-sequencing era
The properties of the human Y chromosome – namely, male specificity, haploidy and escape from crossing over — make it an unusual component of the genome, and have led to its genetic variationExpand
The role of matrilineality in shaping patterns of Y chromosome and mtDNA sequence variation in southwestern Angola
TLDR
It is proposed that irrespective of their subsistence strategies, all Bantu-speaking groups of the area share a male BantU origin, and it is suggested that matrilineality strongly enhances both female population sizes and interpopulation mtDNA variation. Expand
MtDNA segregation in heteroplasmic tissues is common in vivo and modulated by haplotype differences and developmental stage.
TLDR
Key findings are segregation in postmitotic tissues (important for disease models) and segregation covering all developmental stages from prenatal to old age, and potential complications for therapies in human populations are suggested. 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.

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
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
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

TLDR
The findings suggest that, contrary to previous claims, male lineages do not coalesce significantly more recently than female lineages. Expand
Sex-Biased Evolutionary Forces Shape Genomic Patterns of Human Diversity
TLDR
Factors leading to a lower male versus female effective population size must be considered as important demographic variables in efforts to construct models of human demographic history and for understanding the forces shaping patterns of human genomic variability. Expand
Low-Pass DNA Sequencing of 1200 Sardinians Reconstructs European Y-Chromosome Phylogeny
TLDR
A putative age for coalescence of ~180,000 to 200,000 years ago is calculated, which is consistent with previous mitochondrial DNA–based estimates and indicates the presumptive timing of coalescence with other human populations. Expand

TLDR
A diversity of approaches to expansions in Europe is yielding insights into the histories of Phoenicians, Roma, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, and new methods for producing and analysing genome-wide data hold much promise. Expand
