We examined autosomal genome‐wide SNPs and Y‐chromosome data from 15 Siberian and 12 reference populations to study the affinities of Siberian populations, and to address hypotheses about the origin of the Samoyed peoples. 
Paternal origin of Tungusic‐speaking populations: Insights from the updated phylogenetic tree of Y‐chromosome haplogroup C2a‐M86
The demographic history of Tungusic‐speaking populations was explored using the phylogenetic analysis of haplogroup C2a‐M86, the major subbranch of C2 a‐M48.
Genomic insights into the differentiated population admixture structure and demographic history of North East Asians
This work genotyped genome-wide SNPs for 510 individuals from 38 Chinese Mongolic, Tungusic, and Sinitic populations to explore the sharing alleles and haplotypes within the studied groups and merged it with 3508 modern and ancient Eurasian individuals to reconstruct the deep evolutionary and natural selection history of northern East Asians.
Y-chromosome haplogroups from Hun, Avar and conquering Hungarian period nomadic people of the Carpathian Basin
Y chromosomal haplogroups and autosomal loci, suitable to predict biogeographic ancestry, from 49 individuals, supposed to represent the power/military elit of Hun, Avar and conquering Hungarian nomadic groups are determined.
Y-chromosome haplogroups from Hun, Avar and conquering Hungarian period nomadic people of the Carpathian Basin
Hun, Avar and conquering Hungarian nomadic groups arrived into the Carpathian Basin from the Eurasian Steppes and significantly influenced its political and ethnical landscape, supporting historical sources that report identity of the two groups.
Studying polymorphic variants of the NAT2 gene (NAT2*5 and NAT2*7) in Nenets populations of Northern Siberia
Data on the frequency of two important “slow” variants of NAT2 gene (NAT2*5, rs1801280 and NAT2*7, rs1799931), which significantly affect the rate of xenobiotics acetylation, among representatives of indigenous populations of Forest and Tundra Nenets in Northern Siberia are presented.
Shamanic Ritual and Ancient Circumpolar Migrations
Several recent studies have shed light on the migrations and admixtures that led to the peopling of the Americas. Very little is known, however, about the religious concepts and the ritual life of
A novel nonlinear dimension reduction approach to infer population structure for low-coverage sequencing data
MCPCA_PopGen is introduced to analyze population structure of low-depth sequencing data and is applied to samples from two indigenous Siberian populations and reveals hidden population structure accurately using only a single chromosome.


High Levels of Y-Chromosome Differentiation among Native Siberian Populations and the Genetic Signature of a Boreal Hunter-Gatherer Way of Life
The Siberian pattern of reduced haplogroup diversity within populations combined with high levels of differentiation among populations may be a general feature characteristic of indigenous groups that have small effective population sizes and that have been isolated for long periods of time.
Ancient DNA provides new insights into the history of south Siberian Kurgan people
The data indicate that at the Bronze and Iron Age timeframe, south Siberians were blue (or green)-eyed, fair-skinned and light-haired people and that they might have played a role in the early development of the Tarim Basin civilization.
[Genetic structure of an isolated native population group of northern Sibiria, the Nganasani (Tavgi) of the Taimyr. II. An analysis of intrapopulation variability].
The data obtained support the hypothesis that the whole population still preserves the state of the stability of nganasans, and traditional migration from adjacent populations close to ngan asans by language and culture has made an important contribution into heterogeneity found in nganAsans.
Autosomal and uniparental portraits of the native populations of Sakha (Yakutia): implications for the peopling of Northeast Eurasia
The high-resolution phylogenetic dissection of mtDNA and Y-chromosome haplogroups as well as analysis of autosomal SNP data suggests that Sakha was colonized by repeated expansions from South Siberia with minor gene flow from the Lower Amur/Southern Okhotsk region and/or Kamchatka.
Mitochondrial genome diversity in arctic Siberians, with particular reference to the evolutionary history of Beringia and Pleistocenic peopling of the Americas.
This study confirms that Alaska seems to be the ancestral homeland of haplogroup A2 originating in situ and an additional founding lineage for Native American D, termed here D10, arose approximately 17.0 kya in what is now the Russian Far East and eventually spread northward along the North Pacific Rim.
Ancient DNA Reveals Prehistoric Gene-Flow from Siberia in the Complex Human Population History of North East Europe
Comparing genetic data from ancient and modern-day populations revealed significant changes in the mitochondrial makeup of North East Europeans through time, which suggests an important role of post-Mesolithic migrations from Western Europe and subsequent population replacement/extinctions.
Y chromosome polymorphisms in Native American and Siberian populations: identification of Native American Y chromosome haplotypes
The detection of the T allele in all five Native American populations studied and in two of nine native Siberian populations suggested that the DYS199 T allele may have originated in Beringia and was then spread throughout the New World by the founding populations of the major subgroups of modern Native Americans.
Western Eurasian ancestry in modern Siberians based on mitogenomic data
The phylogeographic analysis implies that the western Eurasian founders, giving rise to Siberian specific subclades, may trace their ancestry only to the early and mid-Holocene, though some of genetic lineages may traceTheir ancestry back to the end of Last Glacial Maximum.
The Complex Admixture History and Recent Southern Origins of Siberian Populations
Geogenetic maps are analyzed and other approaches are used to distinguish the effects of shared ancestry from prehistoric migrations and contact, and a new method based on the covariance of ancestry components is developed, to investigate the potentially complex admixture history of Siberian populations.
Reconstructing genetic history of Siberian and Northeastern European populations.
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.
