The establishment of agricultural economies based upon domestic animals began independently in many parts of the world and led to both increases in human population size and the migration of people carrying domestic plants and animals. The precise circumstances of the earliest phases of these events remain mysterious given their antiquity and the fact that subsequent waves of migrants have often replaced the first. Through the use of more than 1,500 modern (including 151 previously… Expand
Origin and dispersal of early domestic pigs in northern China
TLDR
Analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequences of an extensive sample set spanning 10,000 years finds that the earliest pigs from the middle Yellow River region already carried the maternal lineages that are dominant in both younger archaeological populations and modern Chinese pigs. Expand
Zooarchaeological and Genetic Evidence for the Origins of Domestic Cattle in Ancient China
This article reviews current evidence for the origins of domestic cattle in China. We describe two possible scenarios: 1) domestic cattle were domesticated indigenously in East Asia from the wildExpand
DNA analyses of wild boar remains from archaeological sites in Guangxi, China
TLDR
It is suggested that further ancient DNA investigation of the Chinese wild boar samples is essential for revealing the historical process of pig domestication. Expand
The Local Origin of the Tibetan Pig and Additional Insights into the Origin of Asian Pigs
TLDR
Two new origin centers for domestic pigs are identified in the Tibetan highlands and in the Island Southeastern Asian region, identified in previous studies. Expand
Ancient DNA of pigs in Thailand: Evidence of multiple origins of Thai pigs in the late Neolithic period
Pigs, the principal sources of meat for humans, have been crucial to cultures throughout Asia, especially in China and SE Asia, since prehistoric times. Several archaeological studies have used pigExpand
Size matters: A comparative analysis of pig domestication
TLDR
A-side wild boars are significantly larger than C-sides, irrespective of sex, age, and reproductive stage, and this suggests that the increased frequency of A-side individuals in domestic samples through time might be the direct result of active selection by early breeders for their fast growth rate. Expand
Morphological and genetic evidence for early Holocene cattle management in northeastern China.
TLDR
The data suggest that the first attempts to manage cattle in northern China predate the introduction of domestic cattle that gave rise to the current stock by several thousand years. Expand
Geographical Origin of the Domestic Dog
The domestic dog (Canis familiaris) is considered to be the oldest domestic animal in the world. World-wide mitochondrial deoxyribonucleic acid (mtDNA) studies clearly indicate a single origin inExpand
What do we know about domestication in eastern Asia
Abstract The body of data based on new work on genetics and DNA, plus a growing number of radiocarbon ages which are independent of dates based on cultural associations has broadened our knowledge ofExpand
Insights on the historical biogeography of Philippine native pigs and its relationship with Continental domestic and wild boars
TLDR
The close genetic connection between the continental wild boars and domestic pigs present in the Philippine pigs corroborates the hypothesis of a genetic signal that could potentially be associated with the recently reported multiple waves of human migration to the Philippines during the last 50,000 years.

Ancient DNA, pig domestication, and the spread of the Neolithic into Europe
TLDR
It is demonstrated that domestic pigs of Near Eastern ancestry were definitely introduced into Europe during the Neolithic (potentially along two separate routes), reaching the Paris Basin by at least the early 4th millennium B.C. Expand
Phylogeny and ancient DNA of Sus provides insights into neolithic expansion in Island Southeast Asia and Oceania
TLDR
Archeological and genetic evidence shows these pigs were certainly introduced to islands east of the Wallace Line, including New Guinea, and that so-called “wild” pigs within this region are most likely feral descendants of domestic pigs introduced by early agriculturalists. Expand
The origin of the domestic pig: independent domestication and subsequent introgression.
TLDR
Clear evidence was obtained for domestication to have occurred independently from wild boar subspecies in Europe and Asia, and the data indicated a hybrid origin of some major "European" pig breeds. Expand
Multiple maternal origins of chickens: out of the Asian jungles.
TLDR
Different clades may originate from different regions, such as Yunnan, South and Southwest China and/or surrounding areas (i.e., Vietnam, Burma, and Thailand), and the Indian subcontinent, which support the theory of multiple origins in South and Southeast Asia. Expand
Mitochondrial diversity of native pigs in the mainland South and South‐east Asian countries and its relationships between local wild boars
TLDR
The results suggest an existence of human-mediated dispersal of domestic pigs from north to the south during the historical expansion of Sino-Tibetan and Tai peoples and the existence of yet another independent domestication. Expand
Population phylogenomic analysis of mitochondrial DNA in wild boars and domestic pigs revealed multiple domestication events in East Asia
TLDR
It is shown that pig domestication in East Asia mainly occurred in the Mekong region and the middle and downstream regions of the Yangtze River. Expand
New insights into pig taxonomy, domestication and human dispersal in Island South East Asia: molar shape analysis of Sus remains from Niah Caves, Sarawak
TLDR
Both tooth shape and mtDNA evidence strongly suggest the so-called wild pigs of New Guinea to be the descendants of pigs domesticated in mainland South East Asia and introduced by early farmers to ISEA, while future studies should incorporate broader time-scale and geographical framework data-sets to strengthen these assumptions. Expand
Indo-European and Asian origins for Chilean and Pacific chickens revealed by mtDNA
TLDR
Modeling of the potential marine carbon contribution to the Chilean archaeological specimen casts further doubt on claims for pre-Columbian chickens, and definitive proof will require further analyses of ancient DNA sequences and radiocarbon and stable isotope data from archaeological excavations within both Chile and Polynesia. Expand
Origin of mitochondrial DNA diversity of domestic yaks
TLDR
It is shown that haplotypes clustering with two deeply divergent maternal lineages in domesticated yaks occur in a single, small, wild population, which suggests that all domestic yaks are derived from a single wild gene pool. Expand
Worldwide Phylogeography of Wild Boar Reveals Multiple Centers of Pig Domestication
TLDR
Analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequences from 686 wild and domestic pig specimens reveals multiple centers of domestication across Eurasia and that European, rather than Near Eastern, wild boar are the principal source of modern European domestic pigs. Expand
