Hun, Avar and conquering Hungarian nomadic groups arrived to the Carpathian Basin from the Eurasian Steppes and significantly influenced its political and ethnical landscape, however their origin remains largely unknown. In order to shed light on the genetic affinity of above groups we have determined Y chromosomal haplogroups and autosomal loci, suitable to predict biogeographic ancestry, from 49 individuals, supposed to represent the power/military elit. Haplogroups from the Hun-age are… Expand
Genetic analysis of male Hungarian Conquerors: European and Asian paternal lineages of the conquering Hungarian tribes
According to historical sources, ancient Hungarians were made up of seven allied tribes and the fragmented tribes that split off from the Khazars, and they arrived from the Eastern European steppesExpand
Early medieval genetic data from Ural region evaluated in the light of archaeological evidence of ancient Hungarians
TLDR
This study describes maternal and paternal lineages of 36 individuals from these regions and nine Hungarian Conquest period individuals from today’s Hungary, as well as shallow shotgun genome data from the Trans-Uralic Uyelgi cemetery, and demonstrates the genetic connection between Trans-, Cis- Ural and the Carpathian Basin on various levels.

Determination of the phylogenetic origins of the Árpád Dynasty based on Y chromosome sequencing of Béla the Third
We set out to identify the origins of the Árpád Dynasty based on genome sequencing of DNA derived from the skeletal remains of Hungarian King Béla III (1172–1196) and eight additional individualsExpand
Genetic evidence suggests a sense of family, parity and conquest in the Xiongnu Iron Age nomads of Mongolia
TLDR
Using a fine-scale approach (haplotype instead of haplogroup-level information), Scytho-Siberians are proposed as ancestors of the Xiongnu and Huns as their descendants and a woman was of especially high status within this family. Expand
Biologia futura: confessions in genes
TLDR
Y-DNA and mtDNA provide tools for mapping the migration routes of human populations during prehistoric and historical periods, separately as maternal and paternal lineages, and together as the genetic history of a population. Expand
The Impact of Genetics Research on Archaeology and Linguistics in Eurasia
TLDR
The current impact that genetics is having on the fields of archaeology and historical linguistics across the Eurasian continent is outlined and evidence is provided that helps distinguish between instances involving significant migration from those effected by language shift with a minimal genetic trail. Expand
Cost-effective straightforward method for captured whole mitogenome sequencing of ancient DNA.
TLDR
The whole mitogenome Illumina-based sequencing method provides an effective analysis of whole mtDNA, and has proven to be fast, cost-effective, straightforward, with utilisation in population-wide research of burial sites. Expand

Genetic structure of the early Hungarian conquerors inferred from mtDNA haplotypes and Y-chromosome haplogroups in a small cemetery
TLDR
It is revealed that a significant portion of the Hungarians probably originated from a long ago consolidated gene pool in Central Asia-South Siberia, which still persists in modern Hungarians. Expand
Mitogenomic data indicate admixture components of Central-Inner Asian and Srubnaya origin in the conquering Hungarians
TLDR
Phylogenetic results reveal that more than one third of the Conqueror maternal lineages were derived from Central-Inner Asia and their most probable ultimate sources were the Asian Scythians and Asian Huns, giving support to the Hungarian Hun tradition. Expand
Genetic Evidence of an East Asian Origin and Paleolithic Northward Migration of Y-chromosome Haplogroup N
TLDR
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. Expand
Detection of mitochondrial haplogroups in a small avar-slavic population from the eigth-ninth century AD.
TLDR
The results indicate that the transfer of Avar genetic variation through their mtDNA was rather weak in the analyzed mixed population. Expand
Maternal Genetic Ancestry and Legacy of 10th Century AD Hungarians
The ancient Hungarians originated from the Ural region in today's central Russia and migrated across the Eastern European steppe, according to historical sources. The Hungarians conquered theExpand
Inner Asian maternal genetic origin of the Avar period nomadic elite in the 7th century AD Carpathian Basin
TLDR
The genetic results verify the historical thesis on the Inner Asian origin of the Avar elite, as not only a military retinue consisting of armed men, but an endogamous group of families migrated, correlates well with records on historical nomadic societies where maternal lineages were as important as paternal descent. Expand
137 ancient human genomes from across the Eurasian steppes
TLDR
The genomes of 137 ancient and 502 modern human genomes illuminate the population history of the Eurasian steppes after the Bronze Age and document the replacement of Indo-European speakers of West Eurasian ancestry by Turkic-speaking groups of East Asian ancestry. Expand
Human Y Chromosome Haplogroup N: A Non-trivial Time-Resolved Phylogeography that Cuts across Language Families.
TLDR
A number of prominent and well-defined clades with common N3a3'6 ancestry occur in regionally dissimilar northern Eurasian populations, indicating almost simultaneous regional diversification and expansion within the last 5,000 years. Expand
A western Eurasian male is found in 2000-year-old elite Xiongnu cemetery in Northeast Mongolia.
TLDR
The DNA analyses revealed that one subject was an ancient male skeleton with maternal U2e1 and paternal R1a1 haplogroups, the first genetic evidence that a male of distinctive Indo-European lineages (R 1a1) was present in the Xiongnu of Mongolia. Expand
Genetic insights into the social organisation of the Avar period elite in the 7th century AD Carpathian Basin
Abstract After 568 AD the Avars settled in the Carpathian Basin and founded the Avar Qaganate that was an important power in Central Europe until the 9th century. Part of the Avar society wasExpand
