Key MethodSixteen Y-chromosomal binary markers and nine Y-chromosome short tandem repeats were analyzed in a total of 383 unrelated males from seven different Swedish regions, one Finnish region and a Swedish Saami population in order to address questions about the origin and genetic structure of the present day population in Sweden. Haplogroup I1a* was found to be the most common haplogroup in Sweden and accounted, together with haplogroups R1b3, R1a1 and N3, for over 80% of the male lineages. Within…
Population Structure in Contemporary Sweden—A Y‐Chromosomal and Mitochondrial DNA Analysis
TLDR
The sampling strategy, nonselective on the current population rather than stratified according to ancestry, is informative for capturing the contemporary variation in the increasingly panmictic populations of the world.
Homogeneity in mitochondrial DNA control region sequences in Swedish subpopulations
TLDR
The conclusion from this study is that the typed Swedish individuals serve as good representatives for a Swedish forensic mtDNA database and confirmed earlier findings that the Swedish Saami population is an outlier among European populations.
Subdividing Y-chromosome haplogroup R1a1 reveals Norse Viking dispersal lineages in Britain
TLDR
Comparison of modern DNA with recently available ancient DNA data supports the interpretation that two sub-lineages of hg R1a1 spread with the Vikings from peninsular Scandinavia.
History and geography of human Y-chromosome in Europe: a SNP perspective.
TLDR
The distribution of distinctive Y-chromosome lineages can also display a correspondence with geography, thus providing patterns of affinity and clues concerning past human movements, and it is therefore possible to recognize the effect of the colonization of Europe following the Last Glacial Maximum.
Genetic markers and population history: Finland revisited
TLDR
It is suggested that the expression of ‘Finnish Disease Heritage’ illnesses, more common in the eastern/north-eastern Finland, stems from long-term drift, rather than from relatively recent founder effects.
Paternal Genetic History of the Basque Population of Spain
TLDR
Examining the genetic variation in Basque Y chromosome lineages using data on 12 Y-short tandem repeat loci in a sample of 158 males from four Basque provinces of Spain found a small but significant amount of genetic structure between provinces.
A whole-genome sequenced control population in northern Sweden reveals subregional genetic differences
TLDR
The analysis of ACpop, representing approximately 0.11% of the population in Västerbotten, indicates the presence of a genetic substructure within the county, and a demographic analysis showed that the population from which samples were drawn was to a large extent geographically stationary, a finding that was corroborated in the genetic analysis down to the level of municipalities.

Y‐Chromosomal Lineages of Latvians in the Context of the Genetic Variation of the Eastern‐Baltic Region
TLDR
More than a third of Latvian paternal lineages belong specifically to a recently defined R1a‐M558 hg, indicating an influence from a common source within Eastern Slavic populations on the formation of the present‐dayLatvian Y‐chromosome gene pool.

Autosomal, mitochondrial, and Y chromosome DNA variation in Finland: evidence for a male-specific bottleneck.
TLDR
Genetic evidence for a population bottleneck is identified by examining variable microsatellite loci on the nonrecombining portion of Y chromosomes from Finland and four populations from Europe and the Americas by examining sequence data from mtDNA and autosomal dinucleotide repeat markers.
No obvious geographical Y-chromosome gradient in the Swedish population
TLDR
The Y-STR-minimal haplotype markers including DYS385 a and b were analysed and haplogroups were defined by the SNPs TAT, 92R7, M9, M17 and SRY1532, and the whole database can be used for frequency calculations.
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.
Human Genomic Diversity in Europe: A Summary of Recent Research and Prospects for the Future
TLDR
A phylogenetic tree reconstructed from 95 gene frequencies tested on 26 European samples shows some deviant populations (Lapps, Sardinians, Greeks, Yugoslavs, Basques, Icelanders and Finns) and other weakly structured populations may have a simple interpretation: Europeans have not evolved according to a tree of descent probably because of the major role played by migrations in prehistorical and historical times.
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.
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.

Polymorphism at the tetranucleotide repeat locus DYS389 in 10 populations reveals strong geographic clustering
TLDR
A model is proposed, in which both founder effects and genetic drift together with single step replication slippage mutations explain the picture of haplotype diversity observed with this single locus.
Apparent intrachromosomal exchange on the human Y chromosome explained by population history
TLDR
It is demonstrated here that allele frequency distributions at duplicate loci that are suggestive of intrachromosomal recombination can be explained solely by population history.
