Although molecular genetic evidence continues to accumulate that is consistent with a recent common African ancestry of modern humans, its ability to illuminate regional histories remains incomplete. A set of unique event polymorphisms associated with the non‐recombining portion of the Y‐chromosome (NRY) addresses this issue by providing evidence concerning successful migrations originating from Africa, which can be interpreted as subsequent colonizations, differentiations and migrations… Expand
Use of y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA population structure in tracing human migrations.
TLDR
This work compares and contrast uniparentally inherited loci for patterns of continuity and discreteness and discusses how their phylogenetic diversity and progression provide means to disentangle ancient colonization events by pioneering migrants from subsequent overlying migrations. Expand
High Resolution Phylogeographic Map of Y-Chromosomes Reveal the Genetic Signatures of Pleistocene Origin of Indian Populations
Paleoanthropological evidence indicates that modern humans reached South Asia in one of the first dispersals out of Africa, which were later followed by migrations from different parts of the world.Expand

TLDR
The distribution of distinctive Y-chromosome lineages can also display a correspondence with geography, thus providing patterns of affinity and clues concerning past human movements, and it is therefore possible to recognize the effect of the colonization of Europe following the Last Glacial Maximum.

Maori origins, Y‐chromosome haplotypes and implications for human history in the Pacific
TLDR
The Y‐chromosome results support a pattern of complex interrelationships between Southeast Asia, Melanesia, and Polynesia, in contrast to mtDNA and linguistic data, which uphold a rapid and homogeneous Austronesian expansion. Expand
Tracing genetic history of modern humans using X-chromosome lineages
TLDR
A complex demographic history and genetic structure of the African melting pot that led to the emergence of modern humans and their out-of-Africa migration is suggested. Expand
Phylogeography of the human mitochondrial L1c haplogroup: genetic signatures of the prehistory of Central Africa.
TLDR
The phylogeny of the L1c haplogroup of human mitochondrial DNA is analyzed using sequence data from hypervariable regions 1 and 2 obtained from 455 individuals (extracted from a total sampling of 2542 individuals) belonging to sub-Saharan African and African-American populations to attempt a phylogenetically based assessment of the evolutionary relationships between the two groups. Expand
Phylogeography of Y-chromosome haplogroup I reveals distinct domains of prehistoric gene flow in europe.
TLDR
Haplogroup I, the only major clade of the Y phylogeny that is widespread over Europe but virtually absent elsewhere, is analyzed, in detail, and it is revealed that it underwent a postglacial expansion and marked the human colonization of Sardinia approximately 9,000 years ago. Expand

Abstract Paleoanthropological evidence indicates that modern humans reached South Asia in one of the first dispersals out of Africa, which were later followed by migrations from different parts ofExpand
Paternal lineages in southern Iberia provide time frames for gene flow from mainland Europe and the Mediterranean world
TLDR
The particular Andalusian R1b-M269 assemblage confirms the shallow topology of the clade, and the sharing of lineages with the rest of Europe indicates the impact in Iberia of an amount of pre-existing diversity, with the possible exception of R 1b-DF27. Expand
The Human Y Chromosome Haplogroup Tree: Nomenclature and Phylogeography of Its Major Divisions
TLDR
The recent construction of a highly resolved tree of the nonrecombining portion of the Y chromosome (NRY), and the development of a cladistic nomenclatural system to name the resulting haplogroups support the hypothesis of an African origin of human NRY diversity. Expand

TLDR
A 565-bp chromosome 21 region near the MX1 gene, which contains nine sites frequently polymorphic in human populations, has been found, unaffected by recombination and recurrent mutation and thus reflects only migratory history, genetic drift, and possibly selection. Expand

Binary polymorphisms associated with the non-recombining region of the human Y chromosome (NRY) preserve the paternal genetic legacy of our species that has persisted to the present, permittingExpand

Phylogeography of mitochondrial DNA in western Europe
TLDR
A cladistic notation for mitochondrial variation is described and analysis is expanded upon to present a more detailed portrait of the European mitochondrial record, suggesting that most extant mitochondrial sequences in western Europe have a local ancestry in the Early Upper Palaeolithic. Expand
Recent common ancestry of human Y chromosomes: evidence from DNA sequence data.
TLDR
It is estimated that the spread of Y chromosomes out of Africa is much more recent than previously was thought, and the data indicate substantial population growth in the effective number of human Y chromosomes. Expand
Out of Africa and back again: nested cladistic analysis of human Y chromosome variation.
TLDR
It is inferred that one of the oldest events in the nested cladistic analysis was a range expansion out of Africa which resulted in the complete replacement of Y chromosomes throughout the Old World, a finding consistent with many versions of the Out of Africa Replacement Model. Expand
Ancestral Asian source(s) of new world Y-chromosome founder haplotypes.
TLDR
The contrasting distribution patterns of the two major candidate founder haplotypes in Asia and the New World, as well as the results of a nested cladistic analysis, suggest the possibility of more than one paternal migration from the general region of Lake Baikal to the Americas. Expand
Mismatch distributions of mtDNA reveal recent human population expansions.
TLDR
Restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) and DNA sequence analyses of human mitochondrial DNAs (mtDNAs) indicate that significant expansions occurred during the late Middle and Upper Paleolithic in 23 of the 25 populations examined. Expand
Using mitochondrial and nuclear DNA markers to reconstruct human evolution
TLDR
These findings support a recent African origin of modern humans, but this conclusion should be tempered by the possible effects of factors such as gene flow, population size differences, and natural selection. Expand
Combined use of biallelic and microsatellite Y-chromosome polymorphisms to infer affinities among African populations.
TLDR
Despite some correspondence between language affiliation and genetic similarity, geographic proximity seems to be a better predictor of genetic affinity than language affiliation after populations were clustered into different configurations. Expand
