Binary polymorphisms associated with the non-recombining region of the human Y chromosome (NRY) preserve the paternal genetic legacy of our species that has persisted to the present, permitting inference of human evolution, population affinity and demographic history. We used denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography (DHPLC; ref. 2) to identify 160 of the 166 bi-allelic and 1 tri-allelic site that formed a parsimonious genealogy of 116 haplotypes, several of which display distinct… Expand
The phylogeography of Y chromosome binary haplotypes and the origins of modern human populations
TLDR
A set of unique event polymorphisms associated with the non‐recombining portion of the Y‐chromosome (NRY) addresses this issue by providing evidence concerning successful migrations originating from Africa, which can be interpreted as subsequent colonizations, differentiations and migrations overlaid upon previous population ranges.

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. Expand
Divergent haplotypes and human history as revealed in a worldwide survey of X-linked DNA sequence variation.
TLDR
The population genetic history of a 10.1-kbp noncoding region of the human X chromosome was studied using the males of the HGDP-CEPH Human Genome Diversity Panel to address the presence of hX in Africa. Expand
Tracing genetic history of modern humans using X-chromosome lineages
TLDR
A complex demographic history and genetic structure of the African melting pot that led to the emergence of modern humans and their out-of-Africa migration is suggested. Expand
The Eurasian Heartland: A continental perspective on Y-chromosome diversity
TLDR
This study reports the frequencies of 23 Y-chromosome biallelic polymorphism haplotypes in 1,935 men from 49 Eurasian populations, with a particular focus on Central Asia. Expand
Features of evolution and expansion of modern humans, inferred from genomewide microsatellite markers.
TLDR
Variation at di-, tri-, and tetranucleotide repeat loci is distributed differently, although each class of markers exhibits a decrease of within-population genetic variation in the following order: sub-Saharan Africa, Eurasia, East Asia, Oceania, and America. Expand
Use of y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA population structure in tracing human migrations.
TLDR
This work compares and contrast uniparentally inherited loci for patterns of continuity and discreteness and discusses how their phylogenetic diversity and progression provide means to disentangle ancient colonization events by pioneering migrants from subsequent overlying migrations. Expand
Reconstruction of human evolutionary tree using polymorphic autosomal microsatellites.
TLDR
It is shown that the microsatellite allelic diversity and the number of unique alleles were highest in sub-Saharan Africans, and that the San are the first branch of the human tree before the branch leading to all other Africans. Expand
Maori origins, Y‐chromosome haplotypes and implications for human history in the Pacific
TLDR
The Y‐chromosome results support a pattern of complex interrelationships between Southeast Asia, Melanesia, and Polynesia, in contrast to mtDNA and linguistic data, which uphold a rapid and homogeneous Austronesian expansion. Expand
A new haplogroup pattern displayed in Fujian Han in China
TLDR
The results indicated that the M9G marker was highly prevalent (96.20%), suggesting a significant genetic drift, and the distinctive haplogroups frequencies imply that the haplogroup pattern is a relatively ancestral and interim type. Expand

The role of the Y chromosome in human evolutionary studies
TLDR
The addition of DNA sequencining survey data to the rapidly growing RFLP data base made it feasible for the first time to determine the exact number of nucleotide substitutions between different alleles, as well as to construct gene trees and reconstruct the phylogenetic history of populations.

TLDR
A 565-bp chromosome 21 region near the MX1 gene, which contains nine sites frequently polymorphic in human populations, has been found, unaffected by recombination and recurrent mutation and thus reflects only migratory history, genetic drift, and possibly selection. Expand
Recent common ancestry of human Y chromosomes: evidence from DNA sequence data.
TLDR
It is estimated that the spread of Y chromosomes out of Africa is much more recent than previously was thought, and the data indicate substantial population growth in the effective number of human Y chromosomes. Expand
The geographic distribution of human Y chromosome variation.
TLDR
Variation on the nonrecombining portion of the human Y chromosome is examined to investigate human evolution during the last 200,000 years, compatible with a variety of hypotheses, including multiple human migrations and range expansions. Expand
The distribution of human genetic diversity: a comparison of mitochondrial, autosomal, and Y-chromosome data.
TLDR
Analysis of worldwide genetic variation among 255 individuals by using autosomal, mitochondrial, and Y-chromosome polymorphisms reveals substantial congruity among this diverse array of genetic systems and offers broad support for an African origin of modern human populations. Expand
Genetic relationships of Asians and Northern Europeans, revealed by Y-chromosomal DNA analysis.
TLDR
The Y chromosome provides both information about population relationships in Asia and evidence for a substantial paternal genetic contribution of Asians to northern European populations such as the Finns. 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.

Construction of human Y-chromosomal haplotypes using a new polymorphic A to G transition.
TLDR
An apparently African Y chromosome which seems to have entered a Mexican Mayan population several generations ago is analyzed and how the chromosome's haplotype information might be used to answer questions of human origins and migrations is discussed. Expand

TLDR
Analysis of the frequencies of derived alleles for all four genes showed that they more closely fit the expectation of a Luria-Delbrück distribution than a distribution expected under a constant population size model, providing evidence for exponential population growth. Expand
Out of Africa and back again: nested cladistic analysis of human Y chromosome variation.
TLDR
It is inferred that one of the oldest events in the nested cladistic analysis was a range expansion out of Africa which resulted in the complete replacement of Y chromosomes throughout the Old World, a finding consistent with many versions of the Out of Africa Replacement Model. Expand
