  • The genetic formation of Central and South Asian populations has been unclear because of an absence of ancient DNA. [...] Key Result We document a southward spread of genetic ancestry from the Eurasian Steppe, correlating with the archaeologically known expansion of pastoralist sites from the Steppe to Turan in the Middle Bronze Age (2300-1500 BCE).Expand Abstract
