Abstract Background: The Slovenian territory is geographically positioned between the Alps, the Adriatic Sea, the Pannonian basin and the Dinaric Mountains and, as such, has served as a passageway for different populations over different periods of time. Turbulent historic events and the diverse geography of the region have produced a diverse contemporary population whose genetic analysis could provide insight into past demographic events. Aim: The aim of this study was to analyse Y-chromosome… Expand

Topics from this paper

The maternal perspective for five Slovenian regions: The importance of regional sampling
TLDR
The sharp gradient of the J1c haplogroup between Slovenian regions is in line with the archaeological horizon known as Impressed Ware culture and could, therefore, represent a genetic trace of the early Neolithic expansion route along the East Adriatic coastal region. Expand
The place of Slovakian paternal diversity in the clinal European landscape
TLDR
It was found that the male diversity of Slovakia is embedded in the clinal pattern of the major R1a and R1b clades extending over the continent and a similar pattern of population structure is found with Y-specific SNP or STR variation. Expand
Genetic Landscape of Slovenians: Past Admixture and Natural Selection Pattern
TLDR
Slovenian individuals are more closely related to Northern and Eastern European populations than Southern European populations even though they are geographically closer, and Y chromosome diversity splits into two major haplogroups R1b and R1a with the latter suggesting a genetic contribution from the steppe. Expand
Y-Chromosome Genetic Analysis of Modern Polish Population
TLDR
It was confirmed that the Polish population is characterized by a high degree of homogeneity, with only slight genetic differences being observed at the regional level, and the use of regional clustering as an alternative to counties and voivodeships provided a more detailed view of the genetic structure of the population. Expand
Y chromosome genetic data defined by 23 short tandem repeats in a Serbian population on the Balkan Peninsula
TLDR
This study is the first one to define STR polymorphism of Serbian people not only from Serbia but also from other parts of the Balkan Peninsula and may be useful in further examinations of the genesis and genetic structuring of the present-day Serbian gene pool. Expand
Molecular diversity of 23 Y-chromosome short tandem repeat loci in the population of Tuzla Canton, Bosnia and Herzegovina
TLDR
Investigation of the genetic relationship of the male population of the Tuzla Canton and that of the larger Bosnian and Herzegovinian population as well as neighbouring and other European populations finds the newly incorporated loci seem to be highly informative. Expand
Y chromosome haplotype distribution of brown bears (Ursus arctos) in Northern Europe provides insight into population history and recovery
TLDR
This first population genetic analysis of male brown bears shows conclusively that male gene flow was not the main force of population recovery, and suggested major differences in genetic connectivity, diversity and structure between the eastern and the western populations in Northern Europe. Expand
Mutations in Collagen Genes in the Context of an Isolated Population
TLDR
The study explains complex autosomal in cis digenic and X-linked inheritance patterns of nephropathy in the isolated population of Galičnik and describes the first case of Alport syndrome family with three different collagen gene mutations. Expand
New clustering methods for population comparison on paternal lineages
TLDR
The results show that a parallel clustering of populations using SOC and MRP methods can be an efficient tool for studying the demographic history of populations sharing common genetic footprints. Expand
Staroverstvo - the Old Religion - the Slovene Pre-Christian Religion
The data about staroverstvo, i.e. about the pre-Christian religion in three regions in Slovenia are reviewed. The most archaic of them is the Pososko staroverstvo - the Old Religion around the upperExpand

Similarities and distinctions in Y chromosome gene pool of Western Slavs.
TLDR
Significant differences between Y chromosome pools of Czechs and Slovaks compared to other Slavic and European populations are observed and a specific group of Y-STR haplotypes belonging to an R1a haplogroup seems to be shared by Slavic populations dwelling in Central Europe. Expand
Y-STR variation among Slavs: evidence for the Slavic homeland in the middle Dnieper basin
TLDR
The central position of the population of Ukraine in the network of insignificant AMOVA comparisons, and the lack of traces of significant contribution of ancient tribes inhabiting present-day Poland to the gene pool of Eastern and Southern Slavs, support hypothesis placing the earliest known homeland of Slavs in the middle Dnieper basin. Expand
High-resolution phylogenetic analysis of southeastern Europe traces major episodes of paternal gene flow among Slavic populations.
TLDR
The extent and nature of southeastern Europe (SEE) paternal genetic contribution to the European genetic landscape were explored based on a high-resolution Y chromosome analysis involving 681 males from seven populations in the region, finding that five major haplogroups comprise more than 70% of SEE total genetic variation. Expand
Continuity of Y chromosome haplotypes in the population of Southern Poland before and after the Second World War.
TLDR
Comparisons of the contemporary and 'ancestral' population samples with other Polish and Central European populations showed that the population of Southern Małopolska is very closely related to otherPolish and Slavic populations. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA Variability in Bosnians and Slovenians
TLDR
The observed differentiation between Bosnian and Slovenian mtDNAs suggests that at least two different migration waves of the Slavs may have reached the Balkans in the early Middle Ages. Expand
Human Y-chromosome short tandem repeats: a tale of acculturation and migrations as mechanisms for the diffusion of agriculture in the Balkan Peninsula.
TLDR
The data support the view that the diffusion of agriculture into the Balkan region was mostly a cultural phenomenon although some genetic infiltration from Africa, the Levant, the Caucasus, and the Near East has occurred. Expand
The Eurasian Heartland: A continental perspective on Y-chromosome diversity
TLDR
This study reports the frequencies of 23 Y-chromosome biallelic polymorphism haplotypes in 1,935 men from 49 Eurasian populations, with a particular focus on Central Asia. Expand
Y-chromosomal evidence of the cultural diffusion of agriculture in southeast Europe
TLDR
Balkan Mesolithic foragers with their own autochthonous genetic signatures were destined to become the earliest to adopt farming, when it was subsequently introduced by a cadre of migrating farmers from the Near East. Expand
Y-chromosomal diversity in Europe is clinal and influenced primarily by geography, rather than by language.
TLDR
These patterns retain a strong signal of expansion from the Near East but also suggest that the demographic history of Europe has been complex and influenced by other major population movements, as well as by linguistic and geographic heterogeneities and the effects of drift. Expand
A back migration from Asia to sub-Saharan Africa is supported by high-resolution analysis of human Y-chromosome haplotypes.
TLDR
Phylogeographic analyses suggest that a large component of the present Khoisan gene pool is eastern African in origin and that Asia was the source of a back migration to sub-Saharan Africa. Expand
