A cis-phase interaction study of genetic variants within the MAOA gene in major depressive disorder

The genetic basis of major depressive disorder (MDD) has been explored extensively, but the mode of transmission of the disease has yet to be established. To better understand the mechanism by which the monoamine oxidase A (MAOA) gene may play a role in developing MDD, the present work examined the ... Read More

A Comparative Analysis of Chinese Historical Sources and Y-DNA Studies with Regard to the Early and Medieval Turkic Peoples

In the past 10 years, geneticists have investigated the genetic variation of modern Turkic populations as well as ancient DNA of the Xiongnu and others. The accumulated findings of these surveys, however, have not been adequately noted by specialists in Inner Asian history ... Read More

A comparative phylogenetic study of genetics and folk music

Computer-aided comparison of folk music from different nations is one of the newest research areas. We were intrigued to have identified some important similarities between phylogenetic studies and modern folk music. First of all, both of them use similar concepts and representation tools such as multidimensional scaling for modelling relationship ... Read More

A comparison of Y-chromosome variation in Sardinia and Anatolia is more consistent with cultural rather than demic diffusion of agriculture

Two alternative models have been proposed to explain the spread of agriculture in Europe during the Neolithic period. The demic diffusion model postulates the spreading of farmers from the Middle East along a Southeast to Northeast axis. Conversely, the cultural diffusion model assumes transmission of agricultural techniques without substantial movements ... Read More

A comprehensive portrait of Y-STR diversity of Indian populations and comparison with 129 worldwide populations

This study presents the first pan-Indian landscape of 23 Y-STRs and serves as a useful resource for construction of an Indian Y-STR database ... Read More
A continuum of admixture in the Western Hemisphere revealed by the African Diaspora genome

A continuum of admixture in the Western Hemisphere revealed by the African Diaspora genome

Here we present genetic variation from deeply sequenced genomes of 642 individuals from North and South American, Caribbean and West African populations, substantially increasing the lexicon of human genomic variation and suggesting much variation remains to be discovered in African-admixed populations in the Americas ...

FIGURE 2 FROM: A counter-clockwise northern route of the Y-chromosome haplogroup N from Southeast Asia towards Europe

A counter-clockwise northern route of the Y-chromosome haplogroup N from Southeast Asia towards Europe

A large part of Y chromosome lineages in East European and East Asian human populations belong to haplogroup (hg) NO, which is composed of two sister clades N-M231 and O-M175. The O-clade is relatively old (around 30 thousand years (ky)) and encompasses the vast majority of east and Southeast Asian ... Read More
