Patterns of Early Migration In order to gain insight into various migrations that must have happened during movement of early humans into Asia and the subsequent populating of the largest continent on Earth, the HUGO Pan-Asian SNP Consortium (p. 1541) analyzed genetic variation in almost 2000 individuals representing 73 Asian and two non-Asian populations. The results suggest that there may have been a single major migration of people into Asia and a subsequent south-to-north migration across… Expand
Ancestry of the Iban Is Predominantly Southeast Asian: Genetic Evidence from Autosomal, Mitochondrial, and Y Chromosomes
TLDR
It is concluded that migrations from Southeast Asia made a large contribution to Iban ancestry, although evidence of potential gene flow from Taiwan is also seen in uniparentally inherited marker data. Expand
The population genomic landscape of human genetic structure, admixture history and local adaptation in Peninsular Malaysia
TLDR
It is concluded that a long isolation period, subsequent gene flow and local adaptations have jointly shaped the genetic architectures of MEGs, and this study provides insight into the peopling and human migration history in Southeast Asia. Expand
Ancient genomes document multiple waves of migration in Southeast Asian prehistory
Southeast Asia is home to rich human genetic and linguistic diversity, but the details of past population movements in the region are not well known. Here, we report genome-wide ancient DNA data fromExpand
Southeast Asian origins of five Hill Tribe populations and correlation of genetic to linguistic relationships inferred with genome-wide SNP data.
TLDR
A shared Southeast Asian origin of these five Hill Tribe populations is inferred as well ancestry components that distinguish among them seen in successive levels of clustering, which indicates the inferred level of shared ancestry among the Hill Tribes corresponds well to relationships among their languages. Expand
Multi-layered population structure in Island Southeast Asians
TLDR
While confirming the presence of previously recognised major ancestry components in the Southeast Asian population structure, it highlights the Kankanaey Igorots from the highlands of the Philippine Mountain Province as likely the closest living representatives of the source population that may have given rise to the Austronesian expansion. Expand
Genetic diversity and admixture patterns in Indian populations.
TLDR
Genome-wide survey of individuals from current North and South India along with populations from HapMap Phase III and Indian sub-populations from HUGO Pan-Asian SNP Consortium and Multivariate analysis was carried out after merging data from the current study and other consortia. Expand
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 AsiansExpand
Ancient Genomics Reveals Four Prehistoric Migration Waves into Southeast Asia
TLDR
It is found that early genomes from Hoabinhian hunter-gatherer contexts in Laos and Malaysia have genetic affinities with the Ongehunter-gatherers from the Andaman Islands, while Southeast Asian Neolithic farmers have a distinct East Asian genomic ancestry related to present-day Austroasiatic-speaking populations. Expand
Evolutionary history of continental southeast Asians: "early train" hypothesis based on genetic analysis of mitochondrial and autosomal DNA data.
TLDR
It is argued that both the mtDNA and autosomal data suggest an "Early Train" migration originating from Indochina or South China around the late-Pleistocene to early-Holocene period, which predates, but may not necessarily exclude, the Austronesian expansion. Expand
Inferring human history in East Asia from Y chromosomes
TLDR
The current Y chromosome evidence suggests multiple early migrations of modern humans from Africa via Southeast Asia to East Asia to shape the genetic structure in East Asia. Expand

Genes mirror geography within Europe
TLDR
Despite low average levels of genetic differentiation among Europeans, there is a close correspondence between genetic and geographic distances; indeed, a geographical map of Europe arises naturally as an efficient two-dimensional summary of genetic variation in Europeans. Expand
Genetic relationship of populations in China.

  • 1998
TLDR
Genetic evidence does not support an independent origin of Homo sapiens in China, and it is more likely that ancestors of the populations currently residing in East Asia entered from Southeast Asia. Expand
Correlation between Genetic and Geographic Structure in Europe
TLDR
Although Affymetrix GeneChip 500K genotype data from 2,514 individuals belonging to 23 different subpopulations was investigated, the existing differences were characterized by a strong continent-wide correlation between geographic and genetic distance, which provided evidence for a spatial continuity of genetic diversity in Europe.

Inferring Human Colonization History Using a Copying Model
TLDR
A statistical approach that uses Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) data to identify sharing of chromosomal segments between populations and uses the pattern of sharing to reconstruct a detailed colonization scenario is introduced. Expand
Y-Chromosome evidence for a northward migration of modern humans into Eastern Asia during the last Ice Age.

TLDR
This pattern indicates that the first settlement of modern humans in eastern Asia occurred in mainland Southeast Asia during the last Ice Age, coinciding with the absence of human fossils in easternAsia, 50,000-100,000 years ago. Expand
Multilocus genotypes, a tree of individuals, and human evolutionary history.
TLDR
The authors' analyses indicate that some recent ancestor(s) of each of a few of the individuals tested may have immigrated, and the populations within regional groups appear to have been isolated from one another for <25,000 years. Expand
Genome-wide analysis indicates more Asian than Melanesian ancestry of Polynesians.
TLDR
The genetic data suggest a dual origin of Polynesians with a high East Asian but also considerable Melanesian component, reflecting sex-biased admixture in Polynesian history in agreement with the Slow Boat model and demonstrate that conclusions based solely on uniparental markers may not accurately reflect the history of the autosomal gene pool of a population.

Genetic Structure of Europeans: A View from the North–East
TLDR
This analysis revealed that the genetic structure of the European population correlates closely with geography, and allows the creation of a comprehensive European genetic map that will greatly facilitate inter-population genetic studies including genome wide association studies (GWAS). Expand
Haplotype-sharing analysis showing Uyghurs are unlikely genetic donors.
TLDR
A haplotype-sharing analysis based on empirical and simulated data of high-density single nucleotide polymorphisms concluded that the gene pool of modern UIGs is more likely a sole recipient with contribution from both EAS and EUR. Expand
Clines, Clusters, and the Effect of Study Design on the Inference of Human Population Structure
TLDR
Analysis of the 993-locus dataset corroborates earlier results: if enough markers are used with a sufficiently large worldwide sample, individuals can be partitioned into genetic clusters that match major geographic subdivisions of the globe, with some individuals from intermediate geographic locations having mixed membership in the clusters that correspond to neighboring regions.
