The 5300-year-old Helicobacter pylori genome of the Iceman
The stomach bacterium Helicobacter pylori is one of the most prevalent human pathogens. It has dispersed globally with its human host resulting in a distinct phylogeographic pattern that can be used to reconstruct both ...
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, ...
Ancient genome-wide analyses infer kinship structure in an Early Medieval Alemannic graveyard
From historical and archeological records, it is posited that the European medieval household was a combination of close relatives and recruits. However, this kinship structure has not yet been directly tested at a genomic ...
Whole mitochondrial DNA sequencing in Alpine populations and the genetic history of the Neolithic Tyrolean Iceman
The Tyrolean Iceman is an extraordinarily well-preserved natural mummy that lived south of the Alpine ridge ∼5,200 years before present (ybp), during the Copper Age. Despite studies that have investigated his genetic ...
