Using pilot data from the GenomeAsia 100K Consortium, researchers searched for long, diverged haplotypes indicative of admixture between modern and archaic humans.
Mitochondrial sequences suggest some haplogroups found in Finland today arrived in the region pre-Iron Age, though population distributions have shifted.
Genotypes for more than 12,000 individuals from the Americas revealed contributions from European colonization, the Atlantic slave trade, and other migrations.
Using ancient DNA, researchers retraced ancestral diversity and human migrations through Rome and central Italy going back more than 10,000 years.
Researchers documented population structure, ancestry patterns, trait associations, and more with variants found in the genomes of more than 6,400 Ugandans.
By combining mitochondrial DNA and climatic data, an international team of researchers found that an early mitochondrial lineage emerged in a paleo-wetland.
Researchers uncovered examples of potentially beneficial copy number variants introgressed from Neanderthals and Denisovans under positive selection in Melanesians.
For the first phase of the SG10K project, researchers sequenced thousands of Chinese, Malay, or Indian individuals from Singapore, uncovering new variants and population insights.
Using ancient DNA profiling, isotope analyses, and archeological clues, investigators saw high-status, male-centered families, along with more modest graves for unrelated individuals.
