    • Evidence of Early-Stage Selection on EPAS1 and GPR126 Genes in Andean High Altitude Populations. 

      Eichstaedt, Christina A; Pagani, Luca; Antao, Tiago; Inchley, Charlotte E; Cardona, Alexia; Mörseburg, Alexander; Clemente, Florian J et al. (2017-10-12)
    • The Genetic Prehistory of the New World Arctic 

      Raghavan, Maanasa; DeGiorgio, Michael; Albrechtsen, Anders; Moltke, Ida; Skoglund, Pontus; Korneliussen, Thorfinn S; Grønnow, Bjarne et al. (AAAS, 2014-08-29)
      The New World Arctic, the last region of the Americas to be populated by humans, has a relatively well-researched archaeology but is lacking an understanding of its genetic history. We present genome-wide sequence data ...
    • Genomic analyses inform on migration events during the peopling of Eurasia. 

      Pagani, Luca; Lawson, Daniel John; Jagoda, Evelyn; Mörseburg, Alexander; Eriksson, Jon Anders; Mitt, Mario; Clemente, Florian et al. (2016-10)
    • Phylogeography of mtDNA haplogroup R7 in the Indian peninsula 

      Chaubey, Gyaneshwer; Karmin, Monika; Metspalu, Ene; Metspalu, Mait; Selvi-Rani, Deepa; Singh, Vijay Kumar; Parik, Juri et al. (2008-08-04)
      Abstract Background Human genetic diversity observed in Indian subcontinent is second only to that of Africa. This implies an early settlement and demographic growth soon after the first 'Out-of-Africa' dispersal of ...
    • A selective sweep on a deleterious mutation in the CPT1A gene in Arctic populations 

      Clemente, Florian J; Cardona, Alexia; Inchley, Charlotte E; Peter, Benjamin M; Jacobs, Guy; Pagani, Luca; Lawson, Daniel J et al. (Elsevier, 2014-10-23)
      Arctic populations live in an environment characterized by extreme cold and the absence of plant foods for much of the year, and are likely to have undergone genetic adaptations to these environmental conditions in the ...
    • Selective sweep on human amylase genes postdates the split with Neanderthals 

      Inchley, Charlotte; Larbey, Cynthia; Shwan, NAA; Pagani, L; Saag, L; Antão, T; Jacobs, G et al. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-11-17)
      Humans have more copies of amylase genes than other primates. It is still poorly understood, however, when the copy number expansion occurred and whether its spread was enhanced by selection. Here we assess amylase copy ...
    • The study of human Y chromosome variation through ancient DNA 

      Kivisild, Toomas (Springer, 2017-03-04)
      High throughput sequencing methods have completely transformed the study of human Y chromosome variation by offering a genome-scale view on genetic variation retrieved from ancient human remains in context of a growing ...
    • Validity of visceral adiposity estimates from DXA against MRI in Kuwaiti men and women. 

      Mohammad, A; De, Lucia Rolfe Emanuella; Sleigh, Alison; Kivisild, Toomas; Behbehani, K; Wareham, Nicholas John; Brage, Soren et al. (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-01-09)
      ${\bf Objectives:}$ The prevalence of obesity and diabetes in the Middle East is amongst the highest in the world. Valid measures of abdominal adiposity are essential to understanding the metabolic consequences of obesity. ...
