We present 42 new Y-chromosomal sequences from diverse Indian tribal and non-tribal populations, including the Jarawa and Onge from the Andaman Islands, which are analysed within a calibrated Y-chromosomal phylogeny incorporating South Asian (in total 305 individuals) and worldwide (in total 1286 individuals) data from the 1000 Genomes Project. In contrast to the more ancient ancestry in the South than in the North that has been claimed, we detected very similar coalescence times within… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

A comprehensive portrait of Y-STR diversity of Indian populations and comparison with 129 worldwide populations
TLDR
This study genotyped 407 unrelated male individuals from 12 states in India employing the suite of Y-STRs present in PowerPlex Y23 and showed genetic affinity of the Indian populations with few populations from Europe and Levantine. Expand
A Southeast Asian origin for present-day non-African human Y chromosomes
TLDR
It is shown that phylogenetic analyses of haplogroup C, D and FT sequences, including very rare deep-rooting lineages, together with phylogeographic analyses of ancient and present-day non- African Y chromosomes, all point to East/Southeast Asia as the origin 50,000–55,000 years ago of all known surviving non-African male lineages (apart from recent migrants). Expand
Early replacement of West Eurasian male Y chromosomes from the east
TLDR
It is shown that phylogenetic analyses of haplogroup C, D and FT sequences, including very rare deep-rooting lineages, together with phylogeographic analyses of ancient and present-day non- African Y-chromosomes, all point to East/South-east Asia as the origin 50,000-55,000 years ago of all known non-African male lineages (apart from recent migrants). Expand
Sex-biased patterns shaped the genetic history of Roma
TLDR
The results show that the Roma maternal genetic pool carries a higher lineage diversity from South Asia, as opposed to a single paternal South Asian lineage, and suggest that sociocultural factors influenced the emergence of sex-biased genetic patterns at global and local scales in the Roma population through time. Expand
Molecular diversity of 23 Y-STR genetic markers in the population of Rajasthan, India
TLDR
Investigation of genetic diversity in population of Rajasthan based on Y-STR haplotype data shows extremely high haplotype diversity, which will be useful in forensic DNA application, anthropological studies and the data generated from it can be used for strengthening of Indian Y- STR database. Expand
A Rare Deep-Rooting D0 African Y-Chromosomal Haplogroup and Its Implications for the Expansion of Modern Humans Out of Africa
TLDR
This work resolves a long-running debate about Y-chromosomal out-of-Africa/back-to-Afrika migrations, and provides insights into the out- of-Af Africa expansion more generally. Expand
Folklore Versus Genetics: A Mitochondrial DNA Investigation About the Origin and Antiquity of the Adi Sub-tribes of Arunachal Pradesh, India
TLDR
The results based on mtDNA is in agreement with Adi folklore accounts of their historical warfare conflicts and tribal feuds which resulted in their fission–fusion population structure among the Adi regional populations. Expand
The genetic makings of South Asia.
TLDR
Current studies on natural selection in South Asia have so far revealed strong signals of sweeps that are shared with West Eurasians, but future studies will have to fully unlock the aDNA promise for South Asia. Expand
Early human dispersals within the Americas
TLDR
Analysis of the oldest genomes suggests that there was an early split within Beringian populations, giving rise to the Northern and Southern lineages, and that the early population spread widely and rapidly suggests that their access to large portions of the hemisphere was essentially unrestricted, yet there are genomic and archaeological hints of an earlier human presence. Expand
Tracing the Genetic Legacy of the Tibetan Empire in the Balti
TLDR
The analyses of mitochondrial DNA, Y, and X chromosome data indicated that both ancient Tibetan males and females were involved in the male-biased dispersal and the impact of Tibetan Empire on Baltistan involved dominant cultural and minor demic diffusion. Expand

The genetic heritage of the earliest settlers persists both in Indian tribal and caste populations.
TLDR
Results show that Indian tribal and caste populations derive largely from the same genetic heritage of Pleistocene southern and western Asians and have received limited gene flow from external regions since the Holocene. Expand
Reconstructing Indian Population History
TLDR
It is predicted that there will be an excess of recessive diseases in India, which should be possible to screen and map genetically and is higher in traditionally upper caste and Indo-European speakers. Expand
A prehistory of Indian Y chromosomes: evaluating demic diffusion scenarios.
TLDR
The Y-chromosomal data consistently suggest a largely South Asian origin for Indian caste communities and therefore argue against any major influx, from regions north and west of India, of people associated either with the development of agriculture or the spread of the Indo-Aryan language family. Expand
Genomic analysis of Andamanese provides insights into ancient human migration into Asia and adaptation
TLDR
The footprints of adaptive selection in the genomes of the Andamanese show that the characteristic distinctive phenotypes of this population do not reflect an ancient African origin but instead result from strong natural selection on genes related to human body size. Expand
Ethnic India: a genomic view, with special reference to peopling and structure.
We report a comprehensive statistical analysis of data on 58 DNA markers (mitochondrial [mt], Y-chromosomal, and autosomal) and sequence data of the mtHVS1 from a large number of ethnically diverseExpand
Genetic affinities among the lower castes and tribal groups of India: inference from Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
The present study suggests that the vast majority (>98%) of the Indian maternal gene pool, consisting of Indio-European and Dravidian speakers, is genetically more or less uniform. Expand
Genomic reconstruction of the history of extant populations of India reveals five distinct ancestral components and a complex structure
TLDR
Systematic analysis of genome-wide data on 367 unrelated individuals drawn from 18 mainland and 2 island populations selected to represent geographic, linguistic, and ethnic diversities, reveal four major ancestries in mainland India, contrary to an earlier inference of two ancestries based on limited population sampling.

Population Differentiation of Southern Indian Male Lineages Correlates with Agricultural Expansions Predating the Caste System
TLDR
The utility of detailed local genetic studies within India, without prior assumptions about the importance of Varna rank status for population grouping, is highlighted to obtain new insights into the relative influences of past demographic events for the population structure of the whole of modern India. Expand
Independent Origins of Indian Caste and Tribal Paternal Lineages
TLDR
It is found that caste and tribal groups differ significantly in their haplogroup frequency distributions; caste groups are homogeneous for Y chromosome variation and more closely related to each other and to central Asian groups than to Indian tribal or any other Eurasian groups. Expand
Genetic Affinities of the Andaman Islanders, a Vanishing Human Population
TLDR
The data indicate that the Andamanese have closer affinities to Asian than to African populations and suggest that they are the descendants of the early Palaeolithic colonizers of Southeast Asia. Expand
