A multi-perspective view of genetic variation in Cameroon
In this study, we report the genetic variation of autosomal and Y-chromosomal microsatellites in a large Cameroon population dataset (a total of 11 populations) and jointly analyze novel and previous genetic data (mitochondrial ...
Tracing the distribution and evolution of lactase persistence in southern Europe through the study of the T-13910 variant
We investigated the occurrence and intra-allelic variability of the T(-13910) variant located upstream of the lactase gene in 965 individuals from 20 different locations of Italy and Greece. The T(-13910) frequency ranges ...
Demographic histories, isolation and social factors as determinants of the genetic structure of alpine linguistic groups
Great European mountain ranges have acted as barriers to gene flow for resident populations since prehistory and have offered a place for the settlement of small, and sometimes culturally diverse, communities. Therefore, ...
Italian isolates today: Geographic and linguistic factors shaping human biodiversity
We briefly review the current status of anthropological and genetic studies of isolated populations and of their micro-evolutionary and biomedical applications, with particular emphasis on European populations. Thereafter, ...
