Abstract Okkaligar is one of the major communities native to India belongs to Dravidian family and originated from the Himalayan range. They lived in the regions of Punjab, Rajasthan, Delhi, Gujarat, Bengal and the regions lying between Ganga and Yamuna rivers and moved down to South through Mazhava, Birar, and Bhamini States due to harassment of the rulers of these regions. The population of Okkaligar is dominant in Karnataka followed in Tamilnadu and Andhra Pradesh States of India. The… Expand

Genetic evidence on the origins of Indian caste populations.
TLDR
It is concluded that Indian castes are most likely to be of proto-Asian origin with West Eurasian admixture resulting in rank-related and sex-specific differences in the genetic affinities of castes to Asians and Europeans. Expand
Independent Origins of Indian Caste and Tribal Paternal Lineages
TLDR
It is found that caste and tribal groups differ significantly in their haplogroup frequency distributions; caste groups are homogeneous for Y chromosome variation and more closely related to each other and to central Asian groups than to Indian tribal or any other Eurasian groups. Expand
Ethnic India: a genomic view, with special reference to peopling and structure.
We report a comprehensive statistical analysis of data on 58 DNA markers (mitochondrial [mt], Y-chromosomal, and autosomal) and sequence data of the mtHVS1 from a large number of ethnically diverseExpand
Directional migration in the Hindu castes: inferences from mitochondrial, autosomal and Y-chromosomal data
TLDR
The findings support earlier evidence that the caste system has been a significant, long-term source of population structuring in South Indian Hindu populations, and that patterns of migration differ between males and females. Expand
THE PLACE OF THE INDIAN MITOCHONDRIAL DNA VARIANTS IN THE GLOBAL NETWORK OF MATERNAL LINEAGES AND THE PEOPLING OF THE OLD WORLD
TLDR
Coalescence estimates, calculated locally for these three major clusters in India, indicate a major radiation of mtDNA lin­ eages starting approximately 50,000 years ago, which clearly supports the African origin of modem humans. Expand
Female gene flow stratifies Hindu castes
TLDR
It is shown that differences in social rank between castes correspond to mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) distances between caste but not genetic distances estimated from Y-chromosome data. Expand
Jefferson fathered slave's last child
TLDR
The molecular findings fail to support the belief that Thomas Jefferson was Thomas Woodson's father, but provide evidence that he was the biological father of Eston Hemings Jefferson. Expand
Founding father
TLDR
DNA analysis confirms that Thomas Jefferson was indeed the father of at least one of Hemings' children, and the charges have remained controversial. Expand
