Tibetan Plateau

A late Middle Pleistocene Denisovan mandible from the Tibetan Plateau

Here we report a Denisovan mandible, identified by ancient protein analysis9,10, found on the Tibetan Plateau in Baishiya Karst Cave, Xiahe, Gansu, China. We determine the mandible to be at least 160 thousand years old through U-series dating of an adhering carbonate matrix ... Read More

Brazilian Passionflower - Brazil

A minimum set of ancestry informative markers for determining admixture proportions in a mixed American population: the Brazilian set

The Brazilian population is considered to be highly admixed. The main contributing ancestral populations were European and African, with Amerindians contributing to a lesser extent. The aims of this study were to provide a resource for determining and quantifying individual continental ancestry using the smallest number of SNPs possible, thus ... Read More
A mitochondrial etiology of Alzheimer and Parkinson disease

A mitochondrial etiology of Alzheimer and Parkinson disease

Background The genetics and pathophysiology of Alzheimer Disease (AD) and Parkinson Disease (PD) appears complex. However, mitochondrial dysfunction is a common observation in these and other neurodegenerative diseases. Scope of review We argue that the available data on AD and PD can be incorporated into a single integrated paradigm based ... Read More

A mitochondrial revelation of early human migrations to the Tibetan Plateau before and after the last glacial maximum

As the highest plateau surrounded by towering mountain ranges, the Tibetan Plateau was once considered to be one of the last populated areas of modern humans. However, this view has been tremendously changed by archeological, linguistic, and genetic findings in the past 60 years. Nevertheless, the timing and routes of ... Read More
A model-based approach for analysis of spatial structure in genetic data

A model-based approach for analysis of spatial structure in genetic data

Characterizing genetic diversity within and between populations has broad applications in studies of human disease and evolution. We propose a new approach, spatial ancestry analysis, for the modeling of genotypes in two- or three-dimensional space. In spatial ancestry analysis (SPA), we explicitly model the spatial distribution of each SNP by ... Read More
