Austronesian languages are spread across half the globe, from Easter Island to Madagascar. Evidence from linguistics and archaeology indicates that the “Austronesian expansion,” which began 4–5 thousand years ago, likely had roots in Taiwan, but the ancestry of present-day Austronesian-speaking populations remains controversial. Here, focusing primarily on Island Southeast Asia, we analyze genome-wide data from 56 populations using new methods for tracing ancestral gene flow. We show that all… Expand
Resolving the ancestry of Austronesian-speaking populations
TLDR
A primarily common ancestry for Taiwan/ISEA populations established before the Neolithic, but also detected clear signals of two minor Late Holocene migrations, probably representing Neolithic input from both Mainland Southeast Asia and South China, via Taiwan. 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
Complex Patterns of Admixture across the Indonesian Archipelago
TLDR
It is found that recent population history within Indonesia is complex, and that populations from the Philippines made important genetic contributions in the early phases of the Austronesian expansion. Expand
Multi-layered population structure in Island Southeast Asians
TLDR
While confirming the presence of previously recognised major ancestry components in the Southeast Asian population structure, it highlights the Kankanaey Igorots from the highlands of the Philippine Mountain Province as likely the closest living representatives of the source population that may have given rise to the Austronesian expansion. Expand
Multiple migrations to the Philippines during the last 50,000 years
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the Philippines was populated by at least five waves of human migration, contradict an exclusive “out-of-Taiwan” model of farming–language–people dispersal within the last four millennia for the Philippines and Island Southeast Asia. Expand
Reconstructing genetic history of Siberian and Northeastern European populations.
TLDR
It is found that Siberian and East Asian populations shared 38% of their ancestry with a 45,000-yr-old Ust'-Ishim individual who was previously believed to have no modern-day descendants. Expand
Genomic Insights into the Formation of Human Populations in East Asia
The deep population history of East Asia remains poorly understood due to a lack of ancient DNA data and sparse sampling of present-day people1,2. We report genome-wide data from 166 East AsiansExpand
Population Turnover in Remote Oceania Shortly after Initial Settlement
TLDR
Through a fine-grained analysis of ancestry profiles, it is shown that the Papuan ancestry in Vanuatu derives from the Bismarck Archipelago rather than the geographically closer Solomon Islands, documenting a third stream of migration from Near to Remote Oceania. Expand
Reconstructing Genetic History of Siberian and Northeastern European Populations
Siberia and Western Russia are home to over 40 culturally and linguistically diverse indigenous ethnic groups. Yet, genetic variation of peoples from this region is largely uncharacterized. WeExpand

The emergence of the Neolithic is considered to be a pivotal event in the history of human occupation of the Indonesian archipelago as it brought significant changes in numerous aspects ofExpand

Early Austronesians: into and out of Taiwan.
TLDR
Bayesian phylogenetic analysis allows us to reconstruct a history of early Austronesians arriving in Taiwan in the north, spreading rapidly to the south, and leaving Taiwan ~4,000 years ago to spread throughout Island Southeast Asia, Madagascar, and Oceania. Expand
The Indonesian archipelago: an ancient genetic highway linking Asia and the Pacific
TLDR
It is shown that Indonesian communities are trending away from the matri- or ambilocality of early Austronesian societies toward the more common practice of patrilocal residence today, and patterns of genetic diversity show that women moved more widely in earlier times. Expand
A mitochondrial stratigraphy for island southeast Asia.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that mitochondrial DNA diversity in the region is extremely high and includes a large number of indigenous clades, suggesting that, if an agriculturalist migration did take place in ISEA, it was demographically minor, at least with regard to the involvement of women. Expand
Genetic dating indicates that the Asian–Papuan admixture through Eastern Indonesia corresponds to the Austronesian expansion
TLDR
The results indicate that the Austronesian expansion had a strong genetic as well as linguistic impact on Island Southeast Asia, and they significantly advance the understanding of the biological origins of human populations in the Asia–Pacific region. Expand
Ancient voyaging and Polynesian origins.
TLDR
It is shown that the "Polynesian motif itself most likely originated >6 ka in the vicinity of the Bismarck Archipelago, and its immediate ancestor is >8 ka old and virtually restricted to Near Oceania, which indicates that Polynesian maternal lineages from Island Southeast Asia gained a foothold in Near OCEania much earlier than dispersal from either Taiwan or Indonesia would predict.

Farming and Language in Island Southeast Asia
Current portrayals of Island Southeast Asia (ISEA) over the past 5,000 years are dominated by discussion of the Austronesian “farming/language dispersal,” with associated linguistic replacement,Expand
Was there an Austroasiatic Presence in Island Southeast Asia prior to the Austronesian Expansion
No Austroasiatic languages are spoken in island SE Asia today, although we know from the Chamic languages of Vietnam and the SA Huynh culture that contact was extensive between the mainland and theExpand
Y-chromosome evidence suggests a common paternal heritage of Austro-Asiatic populations
TLDR
The findings are consistent with the linguistic evidence, which suggests that the linguistic ancestors of the Austro-Asiatic populations have originated in India and then migrated to Southeast Asia. Expand
Reconstructing Native American Population History
TLDR
It is shown that the initial peopling followed a southward expansion facilitated by the coast, with sequential population splits and little gene flow after divergence, especially in South America. Expand
Major east-west division underlies Y chromosome stratification across Indonesia.
TLDR
A four-phase colonization model is put forward in which Paleolithic migrations of hunter-gatherers shape the primary structure of current Indonesian Y chromosome diversity, and Neolithic incursions make only a minor impact on the paternal gene pool, despite the large cultural impact of the Austronesian expansion.
