Admixture events in recent human history. I think on one hand you want to fair and balanced and be like ok we're humans and we all mix and somewhere down the line so and so occurred but many of these studies are just laughable and you wonder if someone is playing games.

admixture events in recent human history

I dont know what they're talking about, doubt they do either. The Greeks almost 30% Polish should've set off a light-bulb,lol. Looks like Lithuanians have 23% admixture from the Hadza over in Tanzania, they got Bantu, San and Khoi among Northern Europeans as well plus Chinese and other East Asian . Their conclusions on Sardinians is completely asinine in light of all the data that came out during recent years. Seems whenever they found admixture in Northern Europe they dismissed it as noise, uncertain or such - but when noise was found in Southern Europe they wrote up admixtures. Despite being a potential endeavor(never find out why they use an unequal sample sizes on these things) but its not carried out well. Here is their admixture runs from the study:

Oceanic affinities of Japanese people. There's also an Indonesian and mainland southeast Asian affinity for skulls from Yaeyama, as well as the Ryukyus being a probable route for the introduction of SEA cultural traits such as warp ikat and myths of Hainuwele type into mainland Japan.

Japanese rice is also supposed to be genetically close to rice from southeast Asia as well. Googling through the .pdf search engine I found this book chapter by Mark J. Hudson. It seems to come from a book called Companion to Japanese History. "The Yayoi and Kofun cultures did not spread to the Ryu¯kyu¯s or Hokkaido¯. "As noted, Jo¯mon populations from Kyu¯shu¯ expanded south into the Ryu¯kyu¯s as far as Okinawa Island. From the early days of Japanese anthropology it had been assumed that the Ainu of Hokkaido¯ and the Okinawans of the Ryu¯kyu¯ Islands derive primarily from Jo¯mon ancestors rather than the mainland Yayoi Japanese.

New branch added to European family tree: Europeans descended from at least 3, not 2, groups of ancient humans

Agriculture was sweeping in from the Near East, bringing early farmers into contact with hunter-gatherers who had already been living in Europe for tens of thousands of years. Genetic and archaeological research in the last 10 years has revealed that almost all present-day Europeans descend from the mixing of these two ancient populations. But it turns out that's not the full story. Researchers at Harvard Medical School and the University of Tübingen in Germany have now documented a genetic contribution from a third ancestor: Ancient North Eurasians. This group appears to have contributed DNA to present-day Europeans as well as to the people who travelled across the Bering Strait into the Americas more than 15,000 years ago. "Prior to this paper, the models we had for European ancestry were two-way mixtures. "This also explains the recently discovered genetic connection between Europeans and Native Americans," Reich added.

Peering into the past. Genetic link found between Modern Europeans and Native Americans. Europeans share DNA with ancient hunters and Middle Eastern farmersStudy claims Europeans also share their genes with North EurasiansThis group gave their DNA to the people who travelled the Bering StraitAncient Middle Eastern farmers and their European descendants can trace ancestry to a previously unknown lineage called the Basal Eurasians By Ellie Zolfagharifard for MailOnline Published: 17:38 GMT, 17 September 2014 | Updated: 07:37 GMT, 18 September 2014.

Credit: Fredrik HallgrenNew studies of ancient DNA are shifting scientists' ideas of how groups of people migrated across the globe and interacted with one another thousands of years ago. By comparing nine ancient genomes to those of modern humans, Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) scientists have shown that previously unrecognized groups contributed to the genetic mix now present in most modern-day Europeans.

“There are at least three major, highly differentiated populations that have contributed substantial amounts of ancestry to almost everybody that has European ancestry today,” says David Reich, an HHMI investigator at Harvard Medical School. In the last five years, genetic evidence has demonstrated that migrants from the Near East brought agriculture with them to Europe when they arrived about 8,500 years ago. Genetic history of modern Europeans a tangled tale, research finds. Frontiers of Anthropology: Adjusting Atlantis and Mu Map. Above is a chart of the cultural flow from Mu and Atlantis and below is my amendment of it going by other information Mu and New Guinea (at Present) Some of the Ancient Sea Kings maps said to be showing Mu are definitely showing New Guinea instead.

Given its wide, but sparse, distribution, it is likely that it was present in those populations that first colonized Europe. Your Results – RSRS Values – To learn more about RSRS click here. DNA genealogy. Généalogie et génétique. Genetic history of Europe. The genetic history of Europe is complicated because European populations have a complicated demographic and genetic history, including many successive periods of population growth.

Genetic history of Europe

The history must be inferred from the patterns of genetic diversity across continents and time. The primary data come from sequences of mitochondrial, Y-chromosome, and autosomal DNA (including single-nucleotide polymorphisms[1]) from modern populations and if available from ancient DNA. History and limitation of genetic studies[edit] Classical genetic markers (by proxy)[edit] From this, he constructed phylogenetic trees which showed genetic distances diagrammatically. Direct DNA analysis[edit] Studies using direct DNA analysis are now abundant and may use mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), the non-recombining portion of the Y chromosome (NRY) or autosomal DNA. The underlying mutation rate used by the geneticists is more questionable.
