The Y-chromosome haplogroup C2b1a3a2-F8951 is the paternal lineage of the Aisin Gioro clan, the most important brother branch of the famous Mongolic-speaking population characteristic haplogroup C2*-Star Cluster (C2b1a3a1-F3796). However, investigations on its internal phylogeny are still limited. In this study, we used whole Y-chromosome sequencing to update its phylogenetic tree. In the revised tree, C2b1a3a2-F8951 and C2*-Star Cluster differentiated 3852 years ago (95% CI = 3295–4497…

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.

Genomic Insight Into the Population Admixture History of Tungusic-Speaking Manchu People in Northeast China

The first batch of genome-wide data of genotyping approximate 700,000 single-nucleotide polymorphisms in 93 Manchu individuals collected from northeast China found that Liaoning Manchus have a close genetic relationship and significant admixture signal with northern Han Chinese, which is in line with the cluster patterns in the haplotype-based results.



Whole sequence analysis indicates a recent southern origin of Mongolian Y-chromosome C2c1a1a1-M407

It is concluded that C2c1a1a-M407 in Mongolic-speaking populations has originated from northeastern Asia and probably represents the genetic relationships between ancient Oyrats, modern Kalmyks, Mongolians, and Buryats.

Genetic trail for the early migrations of Aisin Gioro, the imperial house of the Qing dynasty

The results suggest that the Aisin Gioro clan may be descendants of ancient populations in Transbaikal region and closely related to origin of current Daur populations and explore the prehistoric activities of populations lacking historical records and archeological evidences.

Phylogeny of Y-chromosome haplogroup C3b-F1756, an important paternal lineage in Altaic-speaking populations

It is proposed that two major sub-branches of C3b-F1756 may correspond to early expansions of ancestors of modern Mongolic- and Turkic-speaking populations and assist in investigation of the early history of Altaic- speaking populations in the future.

Whole-sequence analysis indicates that the Y chromosome C2*-Star Cluster traces back to ordinary Mongols, rather than Genghis Khan

It is concluded that haplogroup C2*-ST is one of the founder paternal lineages of all Mongolic-speaking populations, and direct evidence of an association between C2-ST and Genghis Khan has yet to be discovered.

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.

Mitochondrial DNA sequence polymorphisms of five ethnic populations from northern China

The haplogroup distribution frequencies varied in the five ethnic populations, but in general they all harbored a large amount of north-prevalent haplogroups, such as D, G, C, and Z, and thus were in agreement with their ethnohistory of northern origin.

A counter-clockwise northern route of the Y-chromosome haplogroup N from Southeast Asia towards Europe

These phylogeographic patterns provide evidence consistent with male-mediated counter-clockwise late Pleistocene–Holocene migratory trajectories toward Northwestern Europe from an ancestral East Asian source of Paleolithic heritage.

Reconstruction of Y-chromosome phylogeny reveals two neolithic expansions of Tibeto-Burman populations

A phylogenetic tree and lineage dating both support the hypothesis that the establishment of Tibeto-Burman ancestral groups was triggered by Neolithic expansions from the middle Yellow River Basin and admixtures with local populations on the Tibetan Plateau who survived the Paleolithic Age.

Genetic analysis of 17 Y-STR loci from 1026 individuals of Han populations in Jilin Province, Northeast China

These data provide a reference for the Y-STR database in Jilin Province, and they may be valuable for population genetic analysis.
