Aksay Kazakhs are the easternmost branch of Kazakhs, residing in Jiuquan city, the forefront of the ancient Silk Road. However, the genetic diversity of Aksay Kazakhs and its relationships with other Kazakhs still lack attention. To clarify this issue, we analyzed the non-recombining portion of the Y-chromosome from 93 Aksay Kazakhs samples, using a high-resolution analysis of 106 biallelic markers and 17 STRs. The lowest haplogroup diversity (0.38) was observed in Aksay Kazakhs among all… 

Dual origins of the Northwest Chinese Kyrgyz: the admixture of Bronze age Siberian and Medieval Niru’un Mongolian Y chromosomes

The non-recombining portion of the Y-chromosome from 298 male Kyrgyz samples from Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in northwestern China is analyzed to show that the expansions of Mongol Empire had a striking effect on the Central Asian gene pool.



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

Present Y Chromosomes Refute the Roma/Gypsy Origin of the Xuejiawan People in Northwest China

Since a journalist reported in 1947 that the Xuejiawan people of Northwestern China had an ancient Gypsy origin, these so-called eastern gypsies have attracted wide publicity. Nonetheless, regarding

RETRACTED ARTICLE: Y Chromosomal STR haplotypes in Chinese Uyghur, Kazakh and Hui ethnic groups and genetic features of DYS448 null allele and DYS19 duplicated allele

Visualisation of pairwise genetic distances between 24 ethnic groups in China using multidimensional scaling (MDS) demonstrates the distribution of various groups, which is largely in keeping with ethno-geographic patterns.

On Kazak Spoken and Written Language

This article discusses in details the development history of Kazak language and its characteristics, and gives a briefing on the scripts previously used by Kazaks and new archaeological finds in this aspect.

Development of the Kazakhstan Y-chromosome haplotype reference database: analysis of 27 Y-STR in Kazakh population

Analysis of pairwise genetic distances showed lowest RST values from Uighur and Mongolian populations, while obtained Y-STR haplotypes exhibited a high intra-population diversity.

Different matrilineal contributions to genetic structure of ethnic groups in the silk road region in china.

Direct evidence supporting the suggestion that Central Asia is the location of genetic admixture of the East and the West is provided, with the highest frequency present in Uygur and Uzbek samples, and no western Eurasian type was found in Han Chinese samples from the same place.

Genetic variation in the enigmatic Altaian Kazakhs of South-Central Russia: insights into Turkic population history.

Analysis of the mtDNAs from 237 Altaian Kazakhs revealed that their mtDNA gene pool was comprised of roughly equal proportions of East (A-G, M7, M13, Y and Z) and West (H, HV, pre-HV, R, IK, JT, X, U) Eurasian haplog groups, with the haplotypic diversity within haplogroups C, D, H, and U being particularly high.

Whole sequence analysis indicates a recent southern origin of Mongolian Y-chromosome C2c1a1a1-M407

It is concluded that C2c1a1a-M407 in Mongolic-speaking populations has originated from northeastern Asia and probably represents the genetic relationships between ancient Oyrats, modern Kalmyks, Mongolians, and Buryats.

A genetic landscape reshaped by recent events: Y-chromosomal insights into central Asia.

Two particularly striking features were seen: an extremely high level of Y-chromosomal differentiation between geographically close populations, accompanied by low diversity within some populations, and the occurrence of several recent bottlenecks or founder events.
