Ancient migrations in Southeast Asia The past movements and peopling of Southeast Asia have been poorly represented in ancient DNA studies (see the Perspective by Bellwood). Lipson et al. generated sequences from people inhabiting Southeast Asia from about 1700 to 4100 years ago. Screening of more than a hundred individuals from five sites yielded ancient DNA from 18 individuals. Comparisons with present-day populations suggest two waves of mixing between resident populations. The first mix was… 

The search for ancient DNA heads east

Both teams show that human migration was highly significant, especially the migration of mid-Holocene Neolithic farming populations, ∼5000 to 4000 years ago, from southern China into both mainland and island Southeast Asia.

Ancient DNA indicates human population shifts and admixture in northern and southern China

Genetic differentiation in this region was higher in the past than the present, which reflects a major episode of admixture involving northern East Asian ancestry spreading across southern East Asia after the Neolithic, thereby transforming the genetic ancestry of southern China.

Genomic Insights into the Formation of Human Populations in East Asia

The deep population history of East Asia remains poorly understood due to a lack of ancient DNA data and sparse sampling of present-day people1,2. We report genome-wide data from 166 East Asians

Ancient Jomon genome sequence analysis sheds light on migration patterns of early East Asian populations

The phylogenetic analyses support multiple waves of migration, with IK002 likely representing some of the earliest-wave migrants who went north from Southeast Asia to East Asia and shows strong genetic affinity with the indigenous Taiwan aborigines, which may support a coastal route of the Jomon-ancestry migration.

The Genomic Formation of Human Populations in East Asia

The deep population history of East Asia remains poorly understood due to a lack of ancient DNA data and sparse sampling of present-day people, but genome-wide data from 191 individuals from Mongolia, northern China, Taiwan, the Amur River Basin and Japan is reported, many from contexts never previously analyzed with ancient DNA.

Indian genetic heritage in Southeast Asian populations

The finding suggests that a massive migration of Indian people in the past was responsible for the spread of Indian culture in mainland Southeast Asia, and support for a close genetic affinity between Kra-Dai- and Austronesianspeaking populations, which fits a linguistic hypothesis suggesting cladality of the two language families.



Ancient Genomics and the Peopling of the Southwest Pacific

The finding that the ancient individuals had little to no Papuan ancestry implies that later human population movements spread Papuan Ancestry through the South Pacific after the first peopling of the islands.

Reconstructing Austronesian population history in Island Southeast Asia

It is shown that all sampled Austronesian groups harbor ancestry that is more closely related to aboriginal Taiwanese than to any present-day mainland population, suggesting that either there was once a substantial Austro-Asiatic presence in Island Southeast Asia, or Austronesians migrated to and through the mainland, admixing there before continuing to western Indonesia.

Unravelling the Genetic History of Negritos and Indigenous Populations of Southeast Asia

The continuum in divergence time from Negritos to Senoi and Proto-Malay in combination with ancestral markers provides evidences of multiple waves of migration into SEA starting with the first Out-of-Africa dispersals followed by Early Train and subsequent Austronesian expansions.

Upper Palaeolithic Siberian genome reveals dual ancestry of Native Americans

The findings reveal that western Eurasian genetic signatures in modern-day Native Americans derive not only from post-Columbian admixture, as commonly thought, but also from a mixed ancestry of the First Americans.

Origins and Genetic Legacy of Neolithic Farmers and Hunter-Gatherers in Europe

The results suggest that migration from southern Europe catalyzed the spread of agriculture and that admixture in the wake of this expansion eventually shaped the genomic landscape of modern-day Europe.

Discerning the Origins of the Negritos, First Sundaland People: Deep Divergence and Archaic Admixture

Phylogenetic tree analyses show that Negritos are basal to other East and Southeast Asians, and that they diverged from West Eurasians at least 38,000 years ago.

Reconstructing Native American Population History

It is shown that the initial peopling followed a southward expansion facilitated by the coast, with sequential population splits and little gene flow after divergence, especially in South America.

Mapping Human Genetic Diversity in Asia

The results suggest that there may have been a single major migration of people into Asia and a subsequent south-to-north migration across the continent, and that genetic ancestry is strongly correlated with linguistic affiliations as well as geography.
