The Malagasy have been shown to be a genetically admixed population combining parental lineages with African and South East Asian ancestry. In the present paper, we fit the Malagasy admixture history in a highly resolved phylogeographic framework by typing a large set of mitochondrial DNA and Y DNA markers in unrelated individuals from inland (Merina) and coastal (Antandroy, Antanosy, and Antaisaka) ethnic groups. This allowed performance of a multilevel analysis in which the diversity among… Expand
Multiple Ethnic Origins of Mitochondrial DNA Lineages for the Population of Mauritius
TLDR
This study pinpoints specific regional origins for the South Asian genetic contribution, showing a greater influence on the contemporary population from northern and southeast India. Expand
Admixture into and within sub-Saharan Africa
TLDR
It is shown that coastal populations experienced an influx of Eurasian haplotypes over the last 7000 years, and that Eastern and Southern Niger-Congo speaking groups share ancestry with Central West Africans as a result of recent population expansions. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA and the Y chromosome suggest the settlement of Madagascar by Indonesian sea nomad populations
TLDR
A combination of phylogeographic analysis of genetic distances, haplotype comparisons and inference of parental populations by linear optimization suggests that Malagasy derive from multiple regional sources in Indonesia, with a focus on eastern Borneo, southern Sulawesi and the Lesser Sunda islands. Expand
Strong maternal Khoisan contribution to the South African coloured population: a case of gender-biased admixture.
TLDR
The overall picture of gender-biased admixture depicted in this study indicates that the modern South African Coloured population results mainly from the early encounter of European and African males with autochthonous Khoisan females of the Cape of Good Hope around 350 years ago. Expand
Origin and Evolutionary History of the Malagasy
The uniqueness of Malagasy people comes from a balanced admixture between deep-rooted branches of the human evolutionary history, the Southeast Asian and the African branch. The time and the place ofExpand
Genomic landscape of human diversity across Madagascar
TLDR
A common Bantu and Austronesian descent is found for all Malagasy individuals with a limited paternal contribution from Europe and the Middle East, suggesting independent colonization of Madagascar from Africa and Asia rather than settlement by an already admixed population. Expand
Indian Ocean Crossroads: Human Genetic Origin and Population Structure in the Maldives
TLDR
The new genetic data agree with the commonly reported Maldivian ancestry in South Asia, but furthermore suggest multiple, independent immigration events and asymmetrical migration of females and males across the archipelago. Expand
Contrasting Linguistic and Genetic Origins of the Asian Source Populations of Malagasy
TLDR
Surprisingly, the Ma’anyan are characterized by a distinct, high frequency genomic component that is not found in Malagasy, which hints at a more complex model for the Austronesian expansion in this region. Expand
Ancient migration routes of Austronesian-speaking populations in oceanic Southeast Asia and Melanesia might mimic the spread of nasopharyngeal carcinoma
TLDR
This analysis has exposed new insights of the evolutionary history of insular Asia and has strong implications in assessing possible correlations with linguistic, archaeology, demography and the NPC distribution in populations within these regions. Expand
Evidence of Austronesian Genetic Lineages in East Africa and South Arabia: Complex Dispersal from Madagascar and Southeast Asia
TLDR
A far more complex dynamic of Austronesian dispersals through the Western Indian Ocean than has previously been understood is revealed and suggests thatAustronesian movements within the Indian Ocean may have been part of a lengthy process, probably continuing well into the modern era. Expand

The dual origin of the Malagasy in Island Southeast Asia and East Africa: evidence from maternal and paternal lineages.
TLDR
The most likely origin of the Asia-derived paternal lineages found in the Malagasy is Borneo, which agrees strikingly with the linguistic evidence that the languages spoken around the Barito River in southern Bornea are the closest extant relatives of MalagASY languages. Expand
Traces of Archaic Mitochondrial Lineages Persist in Austronesian-Speaking Formosan Populations
TLDR
Considering the lack of a common specific Y chromosomal element shared by the Taiwanese aboriginals and Polynesians, the mtDNA evidence provided here is consistent with the suggestion that the proto-Oceanic societies would have been mainly matrilocal. Expand
Beta-globin haplotype analysis suggests that a major source of Malagasy ancestry is derived from Bantu-speaking Negroids.
TLDR
This study provides the first definitive biological evidence that a major component of Malagasy ancestry is derived from African populations, in particular, Bantu-speaking Negroids. Expand
Phylogeography and ethnogenesis of aboriginal Southeast Asians.
TLDR
Analysis of mitochondrial DNA genome sequences from Peninsular Malaysia suggests an ancestry in Indochina around the time of the Last Glacial Maximum, followed by an early-Holocene dispersal through the Malay Peninsula into island Southeast Asia. Expand
Insights into the western Bantu dispersal: mtDNA lineage analysis in Angola
TLDR
The analysis showed that the Angola mtDNA genetic pool shows affinities with the African lineages from Brazil, the main American destination of the slaves from Angola, although not all lineages in Brazil can be accounted for by the Angolan mtDNA pool. Expand
Polarity and temporality of high-resolution y-chromosome distributions in India identify both indigenous and exogenous expansions and reveal minor genetic influence of Central Asian pastoralists.
TLDR
The reappraisal indicates that pre-Holocene and Holocene-era--not Indo-European--expansions have shaped the distinctive South Asian Y-chromosome landscape. Expand
Prehistoric and historic traces in the mtDNA of Mozambique: insights into the Bantu expansions and the slave trade.
TLDR
The forced displacement of Mozambicans as part of the slave trade generated a differential input of eastern African sequences into the mtDNA pools of the Americas and of Europe, as testified to by the greater number of sequence matches between Mozambique and the Americas, compared to those between Moz Ambique and Europe. Expand
mtDNA variability in two Bantu-speaking populations (Shona and Hutu) from Eastern Africa: implications for peopling and migration patterns in sub-Saharan Africa.
TLDR
The results indicate that the Shona and Hutu are closely related to the other Bantu-speaking populations, however, there are some differences in haplogroup composition between the two populations, mainly due to different genetic contributions from neighboring populations. Expand
HLA-DRB1 frequencies of the Comorian population and their genetic affinities with Sub-Saharan African and Indian Oceanian populations
TLDR
The Comorian population may represent the eastern limit of the recent and massive eastward Bantu expansion and the genetic relationships and contributions from Sub-Saharan Africa and Indian Oceania and to reconstruct past migration events are determined. Expand
Y chromosomal evidence for the origins of oceanic-speaking peoples.
TLDR
Diversity within the nonrecombining portion of the Y chromosome, which contains within it a relatively simple record of the human past and represents the most informative haplotypic system in the human genome, is assayed. Expand
