Abstract Genetic studies of archaeological burials open up new possibilities for investigating the cultural-historical development of ancient populations, providing objective data that can be used to investigate the most controversial problems of archeology. In this work, we analyzed the Y-chromosomes of nine skeletons recovered from elite burial mounds attributed to the 7th–9th centuries of the Khazar Khaganate in the modern Rostov region. Genotyping of polymorphic microsatellite loci of the Y… 


Phylogeography of the Y‐chromosome haplogroup C in northern Eurasia
To reconstruct the phylogenetic structure of Y‐chromosome haplogroup (hg) C in populations of northern Eurasia, we have analyzed the diversity of microsatellite (STR) loci in a total sample of 413
Excavating Y-chromosome haplotype strata in Anatolia
This comprehensive characterization of Y-chromosome heritage addresses many multifaceted aspects of Anatolian prehistory, including: the most frequent haplogroup, J, splits into two sub-clades, one of which (J2) shows decreasing variances with increasing latitude, compatible with a northward expansion.
Genetic Evidence of an East Asian Origin and Paleolithic Northward Migration of Y-chromosome Haplogroup N
It is proposed that the early northward dispersal of Hg N started from southern China about 21 thousand years ago (kya), expanding into northern China 12–18 kya, and reaching further north to Siberia about 12–14 kya before a population expansion and westward migration into Central Asia and eastern/northern Europe around 8.0–10.0 kya.
Afghan Hindu Kush: Where Eurasian Sub-Continent Gene Flows Converge
The pattern of genetic variation indicates that the people of Afghanistan are made up of a mosaic of components representing various geographic regions of Eurasian ancestry, and that the Hindu Kush is a confluence of gene flows rather than a source of distinctly autochthonous populations that have arisen in situ.
Distinguishing the co-ancestries of haplogroup G Y-chromosomes in the populations of Europe and the Caucasus
No clinal patterns were detected suggesting that the distributions are rather indicative of isolation by distance and demographic complexities, and the P303 SNP defines the most frequent and widespread G sub-haplogroup.
Estimating Scandinavian and Gaelic ancestry in the male settlers of Iceland.
Results based on a study of Y-chromosome diallelic and microsatellite variation in 181 Icelanders, 233 Scandinavians, and 283 Gaels from Ireland and Scotland indicate closer matrilineal links with populations of the British Isles, which supports the model, put forward by some historians, that the majority of females in the Icelandic founding population had Gaelic ancestry.
The Major Y-Chromosome Haplotype XI - Haplogroup R1a in Eurasia
More than 6600 unrelated males from Eurasia were analysed by molecular hybridization experiments for the p49a, f Taq I polymorphisms, belonging to haplotype XI/R1a haplogroup, and further analysed for the two SNPs Z280 and Z93, which define the European and Indian sub-haplogroups.
The Indian origin of paternal haplogroup R1a1* substantiates the autochthonous origin of Brahmins and the caste system
Ongoing observation of the highest frequency of Y-haplogroup R1a1* in Brahmins hinted at its presence as a founder lineage for this caste group, and extended phylogenetic analyses of the pooled dataset supported the autochthonous origin of R 1a1 lineage in India and a tribal link to IndianBrahmins.
The phylogenetic and geographic structure of Y-chromosome haplogroup R1a
The spatial frequency distributions of R1a sub-haplogroups conclusively indicate two major groups, one found primarily in Europe and the other confined to Central and South Asia.
