Biological kinship analysis in extremely critical samples: the case of a Spanish Neolithic necropolis

This study aims to investigate the biological relationship among six Neolithic individuals (4200–3400 cal BC) from the Can Gambús-1 necropolis (Barcelona, Spain) as well as, their possible mitochondrial ancestry.

Comparison of two Neolithic mtDNA haplotypes from a Czech excavation site with the results of mitochondrial DNA studies on European Neolithic and Mesolithic individuals

The aim of the present study was to compare the mtDNA haplotypes (haplogroups H and W) obtained from 2 young females buried within a Neolithic circular enclosure (rondel) with the results of the scientific studies on Neolithic and Mesolithic skeletal material.

Deeply divergent archaic mitochondrial genome provides lower time boundary for African gene flow into Neanderthals

Here we report the complete mtDNA of an archaic femur from the Hohlenstein–Stadel (HST) cave in southwestern Germany. HST carries the deepest divergent mtDNA lineage that splits from other Neanderthals ∼270,000 years ago, providing a lower boundary for the time of the putative mtDNA introgression event.

Y-chromosomal DNA analyzed for four prehistoric cemeteries from Cis-Baikal, Siberia

Results have been obtained from 16 males from the EN cemeteries Lokomotiv and Shamanka II representing haplogroups K, R1a1 and C3, and 20 males from the LN-EBA Ust'-Ida and Kurma XI cemeteries representing haplogroups Q, K and unidentified SNP (L914).
