Genghis Khan’s lineage has attracted both academic and general interest because of its mystery and large influence. However, the truth behind the mystery is complicated and continues to confound the scientific study. In this study, we surveyed the molecular genealogy of Northwestern China’s Lu clan who claim to be the descendants of the sixth son of Genghis Khan, Toghan. We also investigated living members of the Huo and Tuo clans, who, according to oral tradition, were close male relatives of… 

Medieval Super-Grandfather founder of Western Kazakh Clans from Haplogroup C2a1a2-M48.

TLDR
Three lines of evidence indicate that the Alimuly and Baiuly clans (but not the Zhetiru clan) have a common founder placed 700 ± 200 years back by the STR data and 500‬±‬200 yearsBack by the sequencing data, which supports traditional genealogy claims about the descent of these clans from Emir Alau.

The Genetic Structure and East-West Population Admixture in Northwest China Inferred From Genome-Wide Array Genotyping

TLDR
Supporting evidence is provided that the flourish transcontinental communication between East and West Eurasia played a vital role in the genetic formation of northwest Chinese populations.

Genomic Insights Into the Genetic Structure and Natural Selection of Mongolians

TLDR
It is demonstrated that the former western ancestry detected in modern Mongolian could be recently traced back to a historic period in accordance with the historical record about the westward expansion of the Mongol empire.

Is History the Same as Evolution? No. Is it Independent of Evolution? Certainly Not

TLDR
History is full of violence and oppression within and between groups, and although group conflicts enhance within-group cooperation, the hierarchy within groups ensures that spoils accrue very unevenly, and psychological research confirms that group identity, out-group stigmatization, leadership characterized by charisma, and followership characterized by hypnotic obedience are integral parts of human nature.

TLDR
Chinggis Khan’s three surviving lineages’ Y-chromosome DNA test results suggest the near-extinction, not the proliferation, of the direct male descendant line of ChingGis Khan.

The Y-chromosome C3* Star-Cluster Attributed to Genghis Khan's Descendants is Present at High Frequency in the Kerey Clan from Kazakhstan

TLDR
The data obtained suggest that the Kerey clan appears to be the largest known clan in the world descending from a common Y-chromosome ancestor.

Genetic trail for the early migrations of Aisin Gioro, the imperial house of the Qing dynasty

TLDR
The results suggest that the Aisin Gioro clan may be descendants of ancient populations in Transbaikal region and closely related to origin of current Daur populations and explore the prehistoric activities of populations lacking historical records and archeological evidences.

Y chromosome of Aisin Gioro, the imperial house of the Qing dynasty

TLDR
This study forms the base for the pedigree research of the imperial family of Qing dynasty by means of genetics because the Y chromosomal short tandem repeats of seven modern male individuals who claim to belong to the Aisin Gioro family showed very close relationship and possessed a rare haplotype.

Whole-sequence analysis indicates that the Y chromosome C2*-Star Cluster traces back to ordinary Mongols, rather than Genghis Khan

TLDR
It is concluded that haplogroup C2*-ST is one of the founder paternal lineages of all Mongolic-speaking populations, and direct evidence of an association between C2-ST and Genghis Khan has yet to be discovered.

Genetic genealogy reveals true Y haplogroup of House of Bourbon contradicting recent identification of the presumed remains of two French Kings

TLDR
This study once again demonstrated that in order to realize an accurate genetic identification of historical remains DNA typing of living persons, who are paternally or maternally related with the presumed donor of the samples, is required.

Present Y chromosomes reveal the ancestry of Emperor CAO Cao of 1800 years ago

TLDR
Emperor CAO Cao’s claim to be a descendant of Marquis CAO Can and therefore was of aristocratic ancestry was not supported by genetic evidence, and this study offers a successful showcase of the utility of genetics in studying the ancient history.

Phylogeny of Y-chromosome haplogroup C3b-F1756, an important paternal lineage in Altaic-speaking populations

TLDR
It is proposed that two major sub-branches of C3b-F1756 may correspond to early expansions of ancestors of modern Mongolic- and Turkic-speaking populations and assist in investigation of the early history of Altaic- speaking populations in the future.

The Y chromosome as the most popular marker in genetic genealogy benefits interdisciplinary research

TLDR
It is argued why Y-chromosomal analysis and its genetic genealogical applications will still perform an important role in future interdisciplinary research.
