The House of Aisin Gioro is the imperial family of the last dynasty in Chinese history—Qing dynasty (1644–1911). The Aisin Gioro family originated from Jurchen tribes and founded the Manchu people before they conquered China. By investigating the Y chromosomal short tandem repeats (STRs) of seven modern male individuals who claim to belong to the Aisin Gioro family (three of which have full records of pedigree), we found that three of them (two of which having full pedigree, whose most recent… 
Genetic trail for the early migrations of Aisin Gioro, the imperial house of the Qing dynasty
The results suggest that the Aisin Gioro clan may be descendants of ancient populations in Transbaikal region and closely related to origin of current Daur populations and explore the prehistoric activities of populations lacking historical records and archeological evidences.
Molecular genealogy of Tusi Lu’s family reveals their paternal relationship with Jochi, Genghis Khan’s eldest son
The molecular genealogy of Northwestern China’s Lu clan, who claim to be the descendants of the sixth son of Genghis Khan, Toghan, is surveyed and results indicate that haplogroup C2b1a1b1-F1756 might be another candidate of the true Y lineage of Genghai Khan.
Genomic Insight Into the Population Admixture History of Tungusic-Speaking Manchu People in Northeast China
The first batch of genome-wide data of genotyping approximate 700,000 single-nucleotide polymorphisms in 93 Manchu individuals collected from northeast China found that Liaoning Manchus have a close genetic relationship and significant admixture signal with northern Han Chinese, which is in line with the cluster patterns in the haplotype-based results.
Genomic Insights Into the Genetic Structure and Natural Selection of Mongolians
It is demonstrated that the former western ancestry detected in modern Mongolian could be recently traced back to a historic period in accordance with the historical record about the westward expansion of the Mongol empire.
Genetic Perspective on Language Replacement in Siberia
Recent instances of language replacement may have left pronounced genetic effects, and therefore warrant molecular anthropological investigations. However, little work has been reported with this
Y chromosomal clue successfully facilitated the arrest of Baiyin serial killer
According to the evidences from footprint, fingerprint, and DNA (drawn from seminal stains and body fluids) left by the killer in each murder, police confirmed that these murders were committed by the same individual.

With state control being a consistent pattern for more than 2,000 years, family (jia) and state (guo) seem inseparable in China. During the twenty-first century, media technology, freer access to


Recent spread of a Y-chromosomal lineage in northern China and Mongolia.
It is suggested that the Y-chromosomal lineage that is unusually frequent in northeastern China and Mongolia was spread by Qing Dynasty nobility, who were a privileged elite sharing patrilineal descent from Giocangga (died 1582), the grandfather of Manchu leader Nurhaci.
Present Y chromosomes reveal the ancestry of Emperor CAO Cao of 1800 years ago
Emperor CAO Cao’s claim to be a descendant of Marquis CAO Can and therefore was of aristocratic ancestry was not supported by genetic evidence, and this study offers a successful showcase of the utility of genetics in studying the ancient history.
Y Chromosomes of 40% Chinese Descend from Three Neolithic Super-Grandfathers
It is found that all the Paleolithic divergences were binary; however, three strong star-like Neolithic expansions at ∼6 kya (thousand years ago) indicates that ∼40% of modern Chinese are patrilineal descendants of only three super-grandfathers at that time, suggesting that the main patrilinesal expansion in China occurred in the Neolithic Era and might be related to the development of agriculture.
The Y-chromosome C3* Star-Cluster Attributed to Genghis Khan's Descendants is Present at High Frequency in the Kerey Clan from Kazakhstan
The data obtained suggest that the Kerey clan appears to be the largest known clan in the world descending from a common Y-chromosome ancestor.
Haplogroup of the Y Chromosome of Napoléon the First
The finding of the determination of the Y-haplogroup of French Emperor Napoleon I (Napoleon Bonaparte).
Genetic genealogy reveals true Y haplogroup of House of Bourbon contradicting recent identification of the presumed remains of two French Kings
This study once again demonstrated that in order to realize an accurate genetic identification of historical remains DNA typing of living persons, who are paternally or maternally related with the presumed donor of the samples, is required.
The genetic legacy of the Mongols.
The Y-chromosomal lineage identified is carried by likely male-line descendants of Genghis Khan, and it is proposed that it has spread by a novel form of social selection resulting from their behavior.
Afghan Hindu Kush: Where Eurasian Sub-Continent Gene Flows Converge
The pattern of genetic variation indicates that the people of Afghanistan are made up of a mosaic of components representing various geographic regions of Eurasian ancestry, and that the Hindu Kush is a confluence of gene flows rather than a source of distinctly autochthonous populations that have arisen in situ.
Global distribution of Y-chromosome haplogroup C reveals the prehistoric migration routes of African exodus and early settlement in East Asia
The phylogeographic distribution pattern of Hg C supports a single coastal ‘Out-of-Africa’ route by way of the Indian subcontinent, which eventually led to the early settlement of modern humans in mainland Southeast Asia.
Mystery Solved: The Identification of the Two Missing Romanov Children Using DNA Analysis
Forensic DNA testing on the remains discovered in 2007 using mitochondrial DNA, autosomal STR, and Y- STR testing have virtually irrefutable evidence that the two individuals recovered from the 2007 grave are the two missing children of the Romanov family: the Tsarevich Alexei and one of his sisters.
