Haplogroup C2a‐M48 is the predominant paternal lineage of Tungusic‐speaking populations, one of the largest population groups in Siberia. Up until now, the origins and dispersal of Tungusic‐speaking populations have remained unclear. In this study, the demographic history of Tungusic‐speaking populations was explored using the phylogenetic analysis of haplogroup C2a‐M86, the major subbranch of C2a‐M48. 
Genomic Insights Into the Admixture History of Mongolic- and Tungusic-Speaking Populations From Southwestern East Asia
It is confirmed that Guizhou Manchus and Mongolians derived approximately half of the ancestry from their northern ancestors and the other half from southern Indigenous East Asians, which confirmed the admixture events were mediated via the Mongolians Empire expansion during the formation of the Yuan dynasty.
Whole mitochondrial genome analysis of the Daur ethnic minority from Hulunbuir in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region of China
The whole mtDNA data generated in the present study will augment the existing mtDNA database and provide genetic links between the Daur population and the aborigine peoples from Siberia and the Amur-Ussuri Region.
Post-last glacial maximum expansion of Y-chromosome haplogroup C2a-L1373 in northern Asia and its implications for the origin of Native Americans.
The results support the argument from ancient DNA analyses that the direct ancestor group of Native Americans is an admixture of "Ancient Northern Siberians and Paleolithic communities from the Amur region, which appeared during the post-LGM era, rather than ancient populations in greater Beringia, or an adjacent region, before the LGM.


Phylogeography of the Y‐chromosome haplogroup C in northern Eurasia
To reconstruct the phylogenetic structure of Y‐chromosome haplogroup (hg) C in populations of northern Eurasia, we have analyzed the diversity of microsatellite (STR) loci in a total sample of 413
Siberian genetic diversity reveals complex origins of the Samoyedic‐speaking populations
We examined autosomal genome‐wide SNPs and Y‐chromosome data from 15 Siberian and 12 reference populations to study the affinities of Siberian populations, and to address hypotheses about the origin
The diversity of Y-chromosome lineages in indigenous population of South Siberia
The paternal lineages of the gene pools of South Siberian ethnic groups were characterized using the variation analysis of 17 Y chromosome diallelic loci, and the Y chromosome polymorphism has been analyzed in a wide spectrum of Asian populations.
Y‐chromosome O3 Haplogroup Diversity in Sino‐Tibetan Populations Reveals Two Migration Routes into the Eastern Himalayas
It is shown that populations with haplogroup O3 moved into the eastern Himalayas through at least two routes, and the Qiang had the greatest diversity of Sino‐Tibetan populations, supporting the view of this population being the oldest in the family.
High frequencies of Y-chromosome haplogroup O2b-SRY465 lineages in Korea: a genetic perspective on the peopling of Korea
The findings are consistent with linguistic, archaeological and historical evidence, which suggest that the direct ancestors of Koreans were proto-Koreans who inhabited the northeastern region of China and the Korean Peninsula during the Neolithic and Bronze Ages.
Y-chromosomal analysis of clan structure of Kalmyks, the only European Mongol people, and their relationship to Oirat-Mongols of Inner Asia
This work compares the paternal genetic relationship of Kalmyk clans with ethnographically related groups from Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan and China, within the context of their neighbouring populations, and identifies a subset of this clade, C3c1b-F6379, specifically enriched in Kalmyks as well as in Oirat-speaking clans in Inner Asia.
The Eurasian Heartland: A continental perspective on Y-chromosome diversity
This study reports the frequencies of 23 Y-chromosome biallelic polymorphism haplotypes in 1,935 men from 49 Eurasian populations, with a particular focus on Central Asia.
Global distribution of Y-chromosome haplogroup C reveals the prehistoric migration routes of African exodus and early settlement in East Asia
The phylogeographic distribution pattern of Hg C supports a single coastal ‘Out-of-Africa’ route by way of the Indian subcontinent, which eventually led to the early settlement of modern humans in mainland Southeast Asia.
Distribution of the male lineages of Genghis Khan’s descendants in northern Eurasian populations
Data on the variation of 12 microsatellite loci of Y-chromosome haplogroup C3 were used to screen lineages included in the cluster of Genghis Khan’s descendants in 18 northern Eurasian populations and the highest frequency of haplotypes was found in Mongols.
Genetic evidence for the Mongolian ancestry of Kalmyks.
Both mtDNA HV1 sequences and Y-chromosome SNP haplogroups indicate a close relationship of Kalmyks with Mongolians and genetic diversity for both mtDNA and the Y chromosome are comparable in Kalmyk, Mongolians, and other Central Asian groups, indicating that theKalmyk migration was not associated with a substantial bottleneck.
