It has been widely accepted that the Finno-Ugric Hungarian language, originated from proto Uralic people, was brought into the Carpathian Basin by the Hungarian Conquerors. From the middle of the 19th century this view prevailed against the deep-rooted Hungarian Hun tradition, maintained in folk memory as well as in Hungarian and foreign written medieval sources, which claimed that Hungarians were kinsfolk of the Huns. In order to shed light on the genetic origin of the Conquerors we sequenced…

Tracing genetic connections of ancient Hungarians to the 6th–14th century populations of the Volga-Ural region

It is concluded that men and women came to the Carpathian Basin together, and although they were subsequently genetically fused into the local population of the area, certain eastern lineages survived for centuries.

Mitochondrial ancestry of medieval individuals carelessly interred in a multiple burial from southeastern Romania

This study reconstructed, by using Next Generation Sequencing, the entire mitochondrial genomes (mitogenomes) of six medieval individuals neglectfully buried in a multiple burial from Capidava necropolis (Dobruja), some presenting signs of a violent death.

A simultaneous search for footprints of early human migration processes using the genetic and folk music data in Eurasia

In this study, we aimed to illustrate the efficiency of correlation analysis of musical and genetic data for certain common ethnic and ethno-musical roots of mankind. The comparison of the results to

A simultaneous search for footprints of early human migration processes using the genetic and folk music data in Eurasia

It is found that associations of Hgs jointly propagating with associations of UCTs can be identified as significant complex components in both modern and ancient populations, thus, modern populations can be considered as admixtures of these ancient Hg associations.



Genetic structure of the early Hungarian conquerors inferred from mtDNA haplotypes and Y-chromosome haplogroups in a small cemetery

It is revealed that a significant portion of the Hungarians probably originated from a long ago consolidated gene pool in Central Asia-South Siberia, which still persists in modern Hungarians.

Comparison of maternal lineage and biogeographic analyses of ancient and modern Hungarian populations.

It is demonstrated that significant genetic differences exist between the ancient and recent Hungarian-speaking populations, and no genetic continuity is seen.

Maternal Genetic Ancestry and Legacy of 10th Century AD Hungarians

The ancient Hungarians originated from the Ural region in today’s central Russia and migrated across the Eastern European steppe, according to historical sources. The Hungarians conquered the

Ancient DNA provides new insights into the history of south Siberian Kurgan people

The data indicate that at the Bronze and Iron Age timeframe, south Siberians were blue (or green)-eyed, fair-skinned and light-haired people and that they might have played a role in the early development of the Tarim Basin civilization.

MITOMIX, an Algorithm to Reconstruct Population Admixture Histories Indicates Ancient European Ancestry of Modern Hungarians

The analysis shows that SHD and MITOMIX can augment previous methods by providing novel insights into past population processes and shows that in case of closely related and/or admixing populations, SHD gives more realistic results and provides better resolution than FST.

MtDNA and Y chromosome polymorphisms in Hungary: inferences from the palaeolithic, neolithic and Uralic influences on the modern Hungarian gene pool

The results suggest that the influence of Magyars on the Hungarian gene pool has been very low through both females and males and the Hungarian language could be an example of cultural dominance.

Testing Central and Inner Asian admixture among contemporary Hungarians.

Complete Mitochondrial DNA Analysis of Eastern Eurasian Haplogroups Rarely Found in Populations of Northern Asia and Eastern Europe

The findings confirm the previous conclusion that northern Asian maternal gene pool consists of predominantly post- LGM components of eastern Asian ancestry, though some genetic lineages may have a pre-LGM/LGM origin.

East Eurasian ancestry in the middle of Europe: genetic footprints of Steppe nomads in the genomes of Belarusian Lipka Tatars

Lipka Tatars are document as a unique example of former Medieval migrants into Central Europe, who became sedentary, changed language to Slavic, yet preserved their faith and retained, both uni- and bi-parentally, a clear genetic echo of a complex population interplay throughout the Eurasian Steppe Belt.

Diverse origin of mitochondrial lineages in Iron Age Black Sea Scythians

An overall similarity in mtDNA lineages of the NPR Scythians was found with the late Bronze Age Srubnaya population of the Northern Black Sea region which supports the archaeological hypothesis suggesting SrubNaya people as ancestors of theNPR Scythian.
