      Coia V; Capocasa M; Anagnostou P; Pascali V; Scarnicci F; Boschi I; Battaggia C; Crivellaro F; Ferri G; Alù M; Brisighelli F; Busby G; Capelli C; Maixner F; Cipollini G; Viazzo P; Zink A; Bisol G (2013)
      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, ...

      Capocasa M; Anagnostou P; Bachis V; Battaggia C; Bertoncini S; Biondi G; Boattini A; Boschi I; Brisighelli F; Calò C; Carta M; Coia V; Corrias L; Crivellaro F; De Fanti S; Dominici V; Ferri G; Francalacci P; Franceschi Z; Luiselli D; Morelli L; Paoli G; Rickards O; Robledo R; Sanna D; Sanna E; Sarno S; Sineo L; Taglioli L; Tagarelli G; Tofanelli S; Vona G; Pettener D; Bisol G (2014)
      The animal and plant biodiversity of the Italian territory is known to be one of the richest in the Mediterranean basin and Europe as a whole, but does the genetic diversity of extant human populations show a comparable ...
    • A multi-perspective view of genetic variation in Cameroon 

      Coia V; Brisighelli F; Donati F; Pascali V; Boschi I; Luiselli D; Battaggia C; Batini C; Taglioli L; Cruciani F; Paoli G; Capelli C; Spedini G; Destro-Bisol G (2009)
      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 ...
