To analyze the contribution of the Czech population to the Y-chromosome diversity landscape of Europe and to reconstruct past demographic events, we typed 257 males from five locations for 21 UEPs. Moreover, 141 carriers of the three most common haplogroups were typed for 10 microsatellites and coalescent analyses applied. Sixteen Hg's characterized by derived alleles were identified, the most common being R1a-SRY(10831) and P-DYS257*(xR1a). The pool of haplogroups within I-M170 represented the… Expand
Y-chromosomal diversity of the Valachs from the Czech Republic: model for isolated population in Central Europe
TLDR
The Moravian Valachs showed a lower genetic variability of Y-STR markers than other Central European populations, resembling more to the isolated Balkan populations than the surrounding populations. Expand
Similarities and distinctions in Y chromosome gene pool of Western Slavs.
TLDR
Significant differences between Y chromosome pools of Czechs and Slovaks compared to other Slavic and European populations are observed and a specific group of Y-STR haplotypes belonging to an R1a haplogroup seems to be shared by Slavic populations dwelling in Central Europe. Expand
The genetic structure of the Slovak population revealed by Y-chromosome polymorphisms
TLDR
The obtained re-sults show that a significant majority of the Slovak paternal gene pool belongs to Eastern European Y-lineages and indicate the Slavic origin. Expand
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
Genetic Heritage of the Balto-Slavic Speaking Populations: A Synthesis of Autosomal, Mitochondrial and Y-Chromosomal Data
TLDR
The data suggest that genetic diversity of the present-day Slavs was predominantly shaped in situ, and a pattern of distribution of segments identical by descent between groups of East-West and South Slavs suggests shared ancestry or a modest gene flow between those two groups, which might derive from the historic spread of Slavic people.

Assembly of a large Y-STR haplotype database for the Czech population and investigation of its substructure.
Twelve Y-chromosomal short tandem repeats (Y-STR) (DYS19, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393, DYS385a, DYS385b, DYS437, DYS438, and DYS439) included in the PowerPlex Y Kit (PromegaExpand
Phylogeography of Y chromosomal haplogroups as reporters of Neolithic and post-Neolithic population processes in the Mediterranean area
TLDR
These analyses seem to resolve the signal of recent post-Neolithic events from the noise of the main East-to-West Palaeolithic/early Neolithic migrations and confirm that, provided an appropriate level of resolution is used, patterns of diversity among chromosomes which originated outside Europe may often be recognized as the result of discontinuous processes which occurred within Europe. Expand
Two sources of the Russian patrilineal heritage in their Eurasian context.
TLDR
The present study of the variation of the Y chromosome pool of ethnic Russians shows that the patrilineages within the pre-Ivan the Terrible historic borders of Russia have two main distinct sources, one of which antedates the linguistic split between West and East Slavonic-speaking people and is common for the two groups.

Y chromosome variation in Europe: Continental and local processes in the formation of the extant gene pool
TLDR
The emerging picture for the composition of the male gene pool of the continent is illustrated, but local peculiarities that represent departures from the main trends are also highlighted, in order to illustrate the main unifying feature, i.e. the overlay of recent patterns onto more ancient ones. Expand
The place of Slovakian paternal diversity in the clinal European landscape
TLDR
It was found that the male diversity of Slovakia is embedded in the clinal pattern of the major R1a and R1b clades extending over the continent and a similar pattern of population structure is found with Y-specific SNP or STR variation. Expand

A predominantly neolithic origin for Y-chromosomal DNA variation in North Africa.
TLDR
The Neolithic transition in this part of the world was accompanied by demic diffusion of Afro-Asiatic-speaking pastoralists from the Middle East, and it is suggested that the North African pattern of Y-chromosomal variation is largely of Neolithic origin. Expand
Y chromosomal haplogroup J as a signature of the post-neolithic colonization of Europe
TLDR
Dating estimates confirmed the presence of a major population structuring at the time of spread of haplogroup J in Europe and a punctuation in the peopling of this continent in the post-Neolithic, compatible with the expansion of the Greek world. Expand
Recent male-mediated gene flow over a linguistic barrier in Iberia, suggested by analysis of a Y-chromosomal DNA polymorphism.
TLDR
Evidence for direct or indirect gene flow over the substantial linguistic barrier between the Indo-European and non-Indo-European-speaking populations of the Catalans and the Basques, during the past few thousand years is provided. Expand
Excavating Y-chromosome haplotype strata in Anatolia
TLDR
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. Expand
Signature of recent historical events in the European Y-chromosomal STR haplotype distribution
TLDR
It is concluded that Y-STRs may be capable of resolving male genealogies to an unparalleled degree and could therefore provide a useful means to study local population structure and recent demographic history. Expand
Y-chromosomal diversity in Europe is clinal and influenced primarily by geography, rather than by language.
TLDR
These patterns retain a strong signal of expansion from the Near East but also suggest that the demographic history of Europe has been complex and influenced by other major population movements, as well as by linguistic and geographic heterogeneities and the effects of drift. Expand
Y chromosomal DNA variation and the peopling of Japan.
TLDR
Four loci mapping to the nonrecombining portion of the Y chromosome were genotyped in Japanese populations from Okinawa, the southernmost island of Japan; Shizuoka and Aomori on the main island of Honshu; and a small sample of Taiwanese, confirming the irregular distribution of this polymorphism in Asia. Expand
A multistep process for the dispersal of a Y chromosomal lineage in the Mediterranean area.
TLDR
A microsatellite-defined Y-chromosomal lineage identified by us and reported in previous studies, whose geographic distribution and antiquity appear to be compatible with the Neolithic spread of farmers suggests that its spread was associated to a population expansion, with a high rate of male gene flow in the Turkish-Greek area. 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
Hierarchical patterns of global human Y-chromosome diversity.
TLDR
A nested cladistic analysis (NCA) demonstrated that both population structure processes (recurrent gene flow restricted by isolation by distance and long-distance dispersals) and population history events were instrumental in explaining this tripartite division of global NRY diversity. Expand
