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… CONTINUE READING
