The human Y chromosome haplogroup E‐M78 (E3b1a) occurs commonly and is distributed in northern and eastern Africa, western Asia, and all of Europe. Previously, only two rarely observed internal biallelic markers (UEPs) were known within the E‐M78 clade. Here we report the identification of six novel UEPs that significantly refine the phylogeny of this haplogroup. Then, we evaluate the correspondence between the newly defined sub‐haplogroups and the E‐M78 haplotype clusters previously identified… 
Phylogeographic Refinement and Large Scale Genotyping of Human Y Chromosome Haplogroup E Provide New Insights into the Dispersal of Early Pastoralists in the African Continent
TLDR
Time frames, phylogenetic structuring, and sociogeographic distribution of E-V1515 and its subclades are consistent with a multistep demic spread of pastoralism within north-eastern Africa and its subsequent diffusion to subequatorial areas.
Recurrent mutation in SNPs within Y chromosome E3b (E‐M215) haplogroup: A rebuttal
TLDR
A novel polymorphic marker (V68) is introduced, potentially useful to investigate the issue of identity by state at multiple short tandem repeat loci between human Y chromosomes belonging to different E‐M35 sub‐haplogroups.
Multiplex genotyping assays for fine‐resolution subtyping of the major human Y‐chromosome haplogroups E, G, I, J, and R in anthropological, genealogical, and forensic investigations
TLDR
A set of genotyping assays for fine‐resolution subtyping of haplogroups E, G, I, J, and R, which make up the bulk of Western Eurasian and African Y chromosomes are introduced and allow for enhanced Y‐chromosome lineage discrimination.
The Andalusian population from Huelva reveals a high diversification of Y-DNA paternal lineages from haplogroup E: Identifying human male movements within the Mediterranean space
TLDR
The haplogroup E among Western Andalusians revealed a complex admixture of genetic markers from the Mediterranean space, with interesting signatures of populations from the Middle East and the Balkan Peninsula and a surprisingly low influence by Berber populations compared to other areas of the Iberian Peninsula.
Tracing past human male movements in northern/eastern Africa and western Eurasia: new clues from Y-chromosomal haplogroups E-M78 and J-M12.
TLDR
The geographic and quantitative analyses of haplogroup and microsatellite diversity is strongly suggestive of a northeastern African origin of E-M78, with a corridor for bidirectional migrations between northeastern and eastern Africa and trans-Mediterranean migrations directly from northern Africa to Europe.
Increased Y-chromosome resolution of haplogroup O suggests genetic ties between the Ami aborigines of Taiwan and the Polynesian Islands of Samoa and Tonga.
TLDR
It is found that, while haplogroups C2a, S and K3-P79 suggest a Melanesian component in 23%-42% of the Samoan and Tongan Y chromosomes, the majority of the paternal Polynesia gene pool exhibits ties to East Asia, and evidence for a genetic connection between the Polynesian populations and the Ami is found.
Human Y-chromosome short tandem repeats: a tale of acculturation and migrations as mechanisms for the diffusion of agriculture in the Balkan Peninsula.
TLDR
The data support the view that the diffusion of agriculture into the Balkan region was mostly a cultural phenomenon although some genetic infiltration from Africa, the Levant, the Caucasus, and the Near East has occurred.
Introducing the Algerian Mitochondrial DNA and Y-Chromosome Profiles into the North African Landscape
TLDR
A sample of 240 unrelated subjects from a northwest Algeria cosmopolitan population was analyzed using mtDNA sequences and Y-chromosome biallelic polymorphisms, focusing on the fine dissection of haplogroups E and R, which are the most prevalent in North Africa and Europe respectively.
Y-chromosome diversity characterizes the Gulf of Oman
TLDR
High-resolution Y-chromosome analysis of males from the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Yemen revealed high diversity in their Y-haplogroup substructure possibly a result of gene flow along the coastal crescent-shaped corridor of the Gulf of Oman facilitating human dispersals.

Origin, diffusion, and differentiation of Y-chromosome haplogroups E and J: inferences on the neolithization of Europe and later migratory events in the Mediterranean area.
TLDR
The phylogeography of Y-chromosome haplogroups E and J was investigated in >2400 subjects from 29 populations, mainly from Europe and the Mediterranean area but also from Africa and Asia, revealing spatial patterns that are consistent with a Levantine/Anatolian dispersal route to southeastern Europe.
High frequencies of Y chromosome lineages characterized by E3b1, DYS19-11, DYS392-12 in Somali males
TLDR
The data suggest that the male Somali population is a branch of the East African population – closely related to the Oromos in Ethiopia and North Kenya – with predominant E3b1 cluster γ lineages that were introduced into the Somali population 4000–5000 years ago, and that the Somali male population has approximately 15% Y chromosomes from Eurasia and approximately 5% from sub-Saharan Africa.
Y chromosomal haplogroup J as a signature of the post-neolithic colonization of Europe
TLDR
Dating estimates confirmed the presence of a major population structuring at the time of spread of haplogroup J in Europe and a punctuation in the peopling of this continent in the post-Neolithic, compatible with the expansion of the Greek world.
Excavating Y-chromosome haplotype strata in Anatolia
TLDR
This comprehensive characterization of Y-chromosome heritage addresses many multifaceted aspects of Anatolian prehistory, including: the most frequent haplogroup, J, splits into two sub-clades, one of which (J2) shows decreasing variances with increasing latitude, compatible with a northward expansion.
The molecular dissection of mtDNA haplogroup H confirms that the Franco-Cantabrian glacial refuge was a major source for the European gene pool.
TLDR
Findings have major implications for the origin of Europeans, since they attest that the Franco-Cantabrian refuge area was indeed the source of late-glacial expansions of hunter-gatherers that repopulated much of Central and Northern Europe from ~15,000 years ago.
A multistep process for the dispersal of a Y chromosomal lineage in the Mediterranean area.
TLDR
A microsatellite-defined Y-chromosomal lineage identified by us and reported in previous studies, whose geographic distribution and antiquity appear to be compatible with the Neolithic spread of farmers suggests that its spread was associated to a population expansion, with a high rate of male gene flow in the Turkish-Greek area.
Human Y-chromosome variation in the western Mediterranean area: implications for the peopling of the region.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that the dissection of Y-chromosome variation into haplogroups with a more restricted geographic distribution can reveal important differences even between populations that live at short distances, and provides new clues to their past interactions.
Signature of recent historical events in the European Y-chromosomal STR haplotype distribution
TLDR
It is concluded that Y-STRs may be capable of resolving male genealogies to an unparalleled degree and could therefore provide a useful means to study local population structure and recent demographic history.
A predominantly neolithic origin for Y-chromosomal DNA variation in North Africa.
TLDR
The Neolithic transition in this part of the world was accompanied by demic diffusion of Afro-Asiatic-speaking pastoralists from the Middle East, and it is suggested that the North African pattern of Y-chromosomal variation is largely of Neolithic origin.
The dual origin and Siberian affinities of Native American Y chromosomes.
TLDR
Data suggest that Native American male lineages were derived from two major Siberian migrations, which contributed to the modern genetic pool of the Na-Dene and Amerinds of North and Central America.
