human migration

An international team of researchers analyzed whole-genome sequencing data from about 400 individuals from more than two dozen ethnolinguistic groups.

The researchers analyzed nearly a dozen new samples from various regions of Vanuatu and different eras in combination with previously published samples.

In Nature this week: MassIVE.quant resource houses mass spectrometry-based proteomic data, influence of Viking genetics on European populations, and more.

Researchers studied the genetic structure of Viking Age Scandinavian populations, along with migrations and the adoption of Viking culture by non-Scandinavians.

With a new analytical tool, researchers uncovered ancient archaic hominin sequences in the Denisovan genome, along with human introgression into Neanderthals up to 300,000 years ago.

Ancestral alleles "reintroduced" by Neanderthal admixture are prone to functional in the human genome, based on an analysis of East Asian, South Asian, and European sequences.

Analysis of coprolites in an Oregon cave finds they came from people who lived in the Americas prior to the emergence of the Clovis culture, Gizmodo reports.

In PNAS this week: genetic evidence for Inca resettlement, analysis of spermatogonial stem cell transcriptomes, and more.

In Nature this week: a method called cis-X combines whole-genome and transcriptome sequencing data to identify regulatory noncoding variants, and more.

An analysis of more than 800 individuals uncovered evidence of an admixture event between Native Americans from present-day Colombia and Polynesians.
