Unexpected island effects at an extreme: reduced Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA diversity in Nias.

Abstract

The amount of genetic diversity in a population is determined by demographic and selection events in its history. Human populations which exhibit greatly reduced overall genetic diversity, presumably resulting from severe bottlenecks or founder events, are particularly interesting, not least because of their potential to serve as valuable resources for… (More)
