Paternal lineages signal distinct genetic contributions from British Loyalists and continental Africans among different Bahamian islands.
Interestingly, there are notable discrepancies among the six Bahamian populations in their distribution of these lineages, with E1b1a-M2 predominating Y-chromosomes in the collections from Abaco, Exuma, Eleuthera, Grand Bahama, and New Providence, whereas R1b 1b1-M269 is found at elevated levels in the Long Island population.
Inter-laboratory evaluation of SNP-based forensic identification by massively parallel sequencing using the Ion PGM™.
Next generation sequencing (NGS) offers the opportunity to analyse forensic DNA samples and obtain massively parallel coverage of targeted short sequences with the variants they carry. We evaluated
Towards a consensus Y-chromosomal phylogeny and Y-SNP set in forensics in the next-generation sequencing era.
It is clear that an up-to-date reduced tree with a consensus Y-SNP set and a stable nomenclature will be the most appropriate reference resource for forensic research and initiatives to reach such an international consensus are therefore highly recommended.
Palenque de San Basilio in Colombia: genetic data support an oral history of a paternal ancestry in Congo
NRY data are consistent with the linguistic evidence that Yombe is the most likely group from which the original male settlers of Palenque came, and Mitochondrial DNA data suggested substantial maternal sub-Saharan African ancestry and a strong founder effect but did not associate Palenques with any particular African group.
Mutability of Y-chromosomal microsatellites: rates, characteristics, molecular bases, and forensic implications.
The 13 most mutable Y-STRs are analyzed in an independent sample set and empirically proved their suitability for distinguishing close and distantly related males, expected to revolutionize Y-chromosomal applications in forensic biology.
Software for Y-haplogroup predictions: a word of caution
The development of online software designed for genetic studies has been exponentially growing, providing numerous benefits to the scientific community. However, they should be used with care, since


Sub‐populations within the major European and African derived haplogroups R1b3 and E3a are differentiated by previously phylogenetically undefined Y‐SNPs
A population of 118 African‐ and 125 European‐Americans is used to evaluate 12 previously phylogenetically undefined Y‐SNPs for their ability to further differentiate individuals who belong to the major African and European haplogroups and define seven new sub‐clades.
The human Y chromosome: an evolutionary marker comes of age
The availability of the near-complete chromosome sequence, plus many new polymorphisms, a highly resolved phylogeny and insights into its mutation processes, now provide new avenues for investigating human evolution.
Whole-Genome Patterns of Common DNA Variation in Three Human Populations
This work has characterized whole-genome patterns of common human DNA variation by genotyping 1,586,383 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 71 Americans of European, African, and Asian ancestry and indicates that these SNPs capture most common genetic variation as a result of linkage disequilibrium.
Revealing the prehistoric settlement of Australia by Y chromosome and mtDNA analysis
The analysis reveals no evidence for any archaic maternal or paternal lineages in Australians, despite some suggestively robust features in the Australian fossil record, thus weakening the argument for continuity with any earlier Homo erectus populations in Southeast Asia.
Unexpected NRY chromosome variation in Northern Island Melanesia.
To investigate the paternal population history of populations in Northern Island Melanesia, 685 paternally unrelated males from 36 populations in this region and New Guinea were analyzed at 14 regionally informative binary markers and 7 short tandem repeat loci from the nonrecombining portion of the Y chromosome, which identified a very weak signal of recent male Southeast Asian genetic influence.
Melanesian and Asian origins of Polynesians: mtDNA and Y chromosome gradients across the Pacific.
Surprisingly, gradients in the frequency distribution of some NRY/mtDNA haplogroups across Polynesia and a gradual west-to-east decrease of overall Nry/mt DNA diversity are identified, providing evidence for a west- to-east direction of Polynesian settlements but also suggesting that Pacific voyaging was regular rather than haphazard.
Balinese Y-Chromosome Perspective on the Peopling of Indonesia: Genetic Contributions from Pre-Neolithic Hunter-Gatherers, Austronesian Farmers, and Indian Traders
The results indicate that the Austronesian expansion had a profound effect on the composition of the Balinese paternal gene pool and that cultural transmission from India to Bali was accompanied by substantial levels of gene flow.
Origin, diffusion, and differentiation of Y-chromosome haplogroups E and J: inferences on the neolithization of Europe and later migratory events in the Mediterranean area.
The phylogeography of Y-chromosome haplogroups E and J was investigated in >2400 subjects from 29 populations, mainly from Europe and the Mediterranean area but also from Africa and Asia, revealing spatial patterns that are consistent with a Levantine/Anatolian dispersal route to southeastern Europe.
Ethiopians and Khoisan share the deepest clades of the human Y-chromosome phylogeny.
The genetic structure of 126 Ethiopian and 139 Senegalese Y chromosomes was investigated by a hierarchical analysis of 30 diagnostic biallelic markers selected from the worldwide Y-chromosome genealogy and confirms the ancestral affinity between the Ethiopians and the Khoisan.
Hierarchical patterns of global human Y-chromosome diversity.
A nested cladistic analysis (NCA) demonstrated that both population structure processes (recurrent gene flow restricted by isolation by distance and long-distance dispersals) and population history events were instrumental in explaining this tripartite division of global NRY diversity.
