The Cumanians were originally Asian pastoral nomads who in the 13th century migrated to Hungary. We have examined mitochondrial DNA from members of the earliest Cumanian population in Hungary from two archeologically well-documented excavations and from 74 modern Hungarians from different rural locations in Hungary. Haplogroups were defined based on HVS I sequences and examinations of haplogroup-associated polymorphic sites of the protein coding region and of HVS II. To exclude contamination… Expand
Comparison of maternal lineage and biogeographic analyses of ancient and modern Hungarian populations.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that significant genetic differences exist between the ancient and recent Hungarian-speaking populations, and no genetic continuity is seen. Expand
Ancient DNA reveals male diffusion through the Neolithic Mediterranean route
TLDR
The Y-haplotype lineages characterized and the study of their current repartition in European populations confirm a greater influence of the Mediterranean than the Central European route in the peopling of southern Europe during the Neolithic transition. Expand
Mitochondrial sequence variation in ancient horses from the Carpathian Basin and possible modern relatives
TLDR
The results show that the ethnic changes induced by the Hungarian Conquest were accompanied by a corresponding change in the stables of the Carpathian Basin. Expand
Migration Rates and Genetic Structure of two Hungarian Ethnic Groups in Transylvania, Romania
TLDR
Effects of genetic isolation within the Csángó population are revealed, which is, in its genetic structure, clearly different from the Székely population, in sharp contrast to the expectation of high genetic similarity due to the close geographic proximity of their native homelands. Expand
Analysis of ancient human mitochondrial DNA from Verteba Cave, Ukraine: insights into the origins and expansions of the Late Neolithic-Chalcolithic Cututeni-Tripolye Culture
TLDR
The results suggest individuals buried at Verteba Cave had overall low mtDNA diversity, most likely due to increased conflict among sedentary farmers and nomadic pastoralists to the East and North. Expand
Molecular genetic analysis of remains from Lamadong cemetery, Liaoning, China.
TLDR
The present study shows that the ancient nomadic tribes of Huns, Tuoba Xian bei, and Murong Xianbei have different maternal genetic structures and that there could have been some genetic exchange among them. Expand
A Mainly Circum-Mediterranean Origin for West Eurasian and North African mtDNAs in Puerto Rico with Strong Contributions from the Canary Islands and West Africa
TLDR
The West Eurasian mitochondrial ancestry in Puerto Ricans is geographically diverse, however, haplotype diversity seems to be low, and frequencies have been shaped by population bottlenecks, migration waves, and random genetic drift. Expand
Mitochondrial control region sequence variations in the Hungarian population: analysis of population samples from Hungary and from Transylvania (Romania).
TLDR
Comparisons between the authors' population samples indicate the need for heightened caution when sampling, and using mtDNA databases of small endogamous populations, and the importance of considering population structure when generating reference databases for forensic testing. Expand
A Comparative Analysis of Chinese Historical Sources and Y-DNA Studies with Regard to the Early and Medieval Turkic Peoples
In the past 10 years, geneticists have investigated the genetic variation of modern Turkic populations as well as ancient DNA of the Xiongnu and others. The accumulated findings of these surveys,Expand

The model of European genetic ancestry has recently shifted away from the Neolithic diffusion model towards an emphasis on autochthonous Paleolithic origins. However, this new paradigm utilizesExpand

Unravelling migrations in the steppe: mitochondrial DNA sequences from ancient Central Asians
TLDR
The usefulness of the ancient DNA in unravelling complex patterns of past human migrations so as to help decipher the origin of present–day admixed populations is demonstrated. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA analysis of Mongolian populations and implications for the origin of New World founders.
TLDR
It is proposed that indigenous populations in east Central Asia represent the closest genetic link between Old and New World populations and is likely that founder effects manifest throughout Asia and the Americas are responsible for differences in mtDNA haplotype frequencies observed in these regions. Expand
Ancient mitochondrial DNA evidence for prehistoric population movement: the Numic expansion.
TLDR
The frequency distributions of haplogroups in the ancient and modern Native Americans differed significantly, suggesting that there is a genetic discontinuity between the ancient inhabitants and the modern Numic speakers, providing further support for the Recent Numic Expansion hypothesis. Expand
Georgian and kurd mtDNA sequence analysis shows a lack of correlation between languages and female genetic lineages.
TLDR
The outlier position of the populations from the Caucasus according to classical genetic markers is not recognized in the present Georgian mtDNA sequence pool, which suggests that the differentiation of mtDNA sequences in West Eurasia and the outlier features of Caucasian populations should be attributed to different processes. Expand
Heterogeneity of mitochondrial DNA haplotypes in Pre-Columbian Natives of the Amazon region.
TLDR
It is suggested that, in addition to the postulated bottleneck effect during the migration from Asia to the Americas, the depopulation effect started by European colonization in the 16th century contributed to the reduction in genetic variability of Amerindians. Expand
Traces of early Eurasians in the Mansi of northwest Siberia revealed by mitochondrial DNA analysis.
TLDR
The added presence of eastern Eurasian mtDNA lineages in the Mansi introduces the possibilities that proto-Eurasians encompassed a range of macrohaplogroup M and N lineages that subsequently became geographically distributed and that the Paleolithic expansion may have reached this part of Siberia before it split into western and eastern human groups. Expand
Reconstructing the evolutionary history of China: a caveat about inferences drawn from ancient DNA.
TLDR
The results highlight that ancient mtDNA data obtained under different sampling schemes and subject to potential contamination can easily create the impression of drastic spatiotemporal changes in the genetic structure of a regional population during the past few thousand years if inappropriate methods of data analysis are employed.

Founding Amerindian mitochondrial DNA lineages in ancient Maya from Xcaret, Quintana Roo.
Ancient DNA from the bone remains of 25 out of 28 pre-Columbian individuals from the Late Classic-Postclassic Maya site of Xcaret, Quintana Roo, was recovered, and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) wasExpand
mtDNA variation of aboriginal Siberians reveals distinct genetic affinities with Native Americans.
TLDR
The hypothesis that the first humans to move from Siberia to the Americas carried with them a limited number of founding mtDNAs is supported and that the initial migration occurred between 17,000-34,000 years before present. Expand
From Asia to Europe: mitochondrial DNA sequence variability in Bulgarians and Turks
TLDR
Mean pairwise differences suggest that a demographic expansion occurred sequentially in the Middle East, through Turkey, to the rest of Europe (Bulgaria included), and would correspond to the arrival of anatomically modern humans in Europe. Expand
