The history of Hungary starts in the 9th century with the arrival of the Magyars in the Carpathian Basin. They spoke, like modern Hungarians, an Uralic language belonging to the Finno‐Ugric language group. Their original composition probably included Iranian and Turkish people, while other populations were already present in the territory (Avars, Slavs, Germans). Some of the Hungarian ethnic groups claim to be descendants of ancient Magyars settlers (such as the Örség), others of Huns, Turks or… 

Y‐Chromosome Analysis of Ancient Hungarian and Two Modern Hungarian‐Speaking Populations from the Carpathian Basin

The Hungarian population belongs linguistically to the Finno‐Ugric branch of the Uralic family. The Tat C allele is an interesting marker in the Finno‐Ugric context, distributed in all the

Migration Rates and Genetic Structure of two Hungarian Ethnic Groups in Transylvania, Romania

Effects of genetic isolation within the Csángó population are revealed, which is, in its genetic structure, clearly different from the Székely population, in sharp contrast to the expectation of high genetic similarity due to the close geographic proximity of their native homelands.

Investigating the genetic characteristics of the Csangos, a traditionally Hungarian speaking ethnic group residing in Romania

The findings suggest that genetic affinity of Csangos to Hungarians is more significant than to Romanians, and they also have a detectable connection with Central-Asian and Siberian Turkic ethnic groups.

Genetic analysis of male Hungarian Conquerors: European and Asian paternal lineages of the conquering Hungarian tribes

According to historical sources, ancient Hungarians were made up of seven allied tribes and the fragmented tribes that split off from the Khazars, and they arrived from the Eastern European steppes

Comparison of mtDNA haplogroups in Hungarians with four other European populations: a small incidence of descents with Asian origin.

The presence of haplogroup M found in approximately 5% of the total suggests that an Asian matrilineal ancestry, even if in a small incidence, can be detected among modern Hungarians.

Human Chromosomal Polymorphism in a Hungarian Sample

The result shows that there is a relatively small difference between the Hungarian and Indian group, the Central-Europeans differ more, and the most distant relatives are the Turks among the populations mentioned in this paper.

Genome-Wide Marker Data-Based Comparative Population Analysis of Szeklers From Korond, Transylvania, and From Transylvania Living Non-Szekler Hungarians

Genome-wide genotype data from 48 carefully selected population samples of Transylvania-living Szeklers and non-Szekler Hungarians were analyzed by comparative analysis. Our analyses involved

Marked differences in frequencies of statin therapy relevant SLCO1B1 variants and haplotypes between Roma and Hungarian populations

Investigation of the genetic variability and haplotype profile of SLCO1B1 polymorphisms in Roma and Hungarian populations found the 388A was found to be the minor allele contrary to Indians (India), which reflects the measured average European rates in Hungarians.

Influence of the N-acetylation polymorphism on the metabolism of talampanel: an investigation in fasted and fed subjects genotyped for NAT2 variants.

Talampanel is a 2,3-benzodiazepine-type allosteric (noncompetitive) AMPA-antagonist currently being developed as an orally active, broad-spectrum anticonvulsant. Here, a detailed study of its



Uralic genes in Europe.

Analysis of data of three European populations speaking non-Indoeuropean languages shows that Lapps are almost exactly intermediate between people located geographically near the Ural mountains and speaking Uralic languages, and central and northern Europeans.

This book relates what scholars and dilettante literati from the 16th century until the present have said about the origin of the Finns. The 'Father of Anthropology', Joh. Fr. Blumenbach, argued in

Reconstruction of human evolution: bringing together genetic, archaeological, and linguistic data.

The reconstruction of human evolutionary history was checked with statistical techniques such as "boot-strapping" and changes some earlier conclusions and is in agreement with more recent ones, including published and unpublished DNA-marker results.

Dual origins of Finns revealed by Y chromosome haplotype variation.

Genetic evidence for the dual origins of Finns is presented by evaluating the pattern of Y chromosome variation in 280 unrelated males from nine Finnish provinces and revealing two major star-shaped clusters of Y haplotypes, indicative of a population expansion from two common Y chromosomes.

Y chromosomal polymorphisms reveal founding lineages in the Finns and the Saami

In the Finns a majority of the haplotypes could be assigned to two distinct groups, one of which harboured the C allele of the Tat polymorphism, indicating dichotomous primary source of genetic variation among Finnish males.

Paternal and maternal DNA lineages reveal a bottleneck in the founding of the Finnish population.

A preliminary analysis of the mitochondrial mutations that have accumulated subsequent to the bottleneck suggests that it occurred about 4000 years ago, presumably when populations using agriculture and animal husbandry arrived in Finland.

The genetic structure of admixed populations.

A chi-square test used to detect heterogeneity of admixture estimates from different alleles, or loci, can now be corrected for both sources of random errors, and its value for the detection of natural selection from heterogeneous admixtures estimates is improved.

The neighbor-joining method: a new method for reconstructing phylogenetic trees.

The neighbor-joining method and Sattath and Tversky's method are shown to be generally better than the other methods for reconstructing phylogenetic trees from evolutionary distance data.
