    • Binary and microsatellite polymorphisms of the Y-chromosome in the mbenzele pygmies from the Central African Republic 

      Coia V; Caglià A; Arredi B; Donati F; Santos F; Pandya A; Taglioli L; Paoli G; Pascali V; Destro-Bisol G; Tyler-Smith C (2004)
      This study analyzes the variation of six binary polymorphisms and six microsatellites in the Mbenzele Pygmies from the Central African Republic. Five different haplogroups (B2b, E(xE3a), E3a, P and BR(xB2b,DE,P)) were ...
    • Italian isolates today: Geographic and linguistic factors shaping human biodiversity 

      Bisol G; Anagnostou P; Batini C; Battaggia C; Bertoncini S; Boattini A; Caciagli L; Calò C; Capelli C; Capocasa M; Castrì L; Ciani G; Coia V; Corrias L; Crivellaro F; Ghiani M; Luiselli D; Mela C; Melis A; Montano V; Paoli G; Sanna E; Rufo F; Sazzini M; Taglloli L; Tofanelli S; Useli A; Vona G; Pettener D (2008)
      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, ...
    • Linguistic, geographic and genetic isolation: A collaborative study of italian populations 

      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 ...
    • A study of Y-chromosome microsatellite variation in sub-Saharan Africa: A comparison between FST and RST genetic distances 

      Caglià A; Tofanelli S; Coia V; Boschi I; Pescarmona M; Spedini G; Pascali V; Paoli G; Destro-Bisol G (2003)
      Seven Y-chromosome microsatellite loci (DYS19, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, and DYS393) were analyzed in three populations from sub-Saharan Africa: the Bamileke and Ewondo populations from Cameroon and the ...
    • Variation at 10 protein coding loci in the Mbenzele Pygmies from the Central African Republic and a comparison with microsatellite data 

      Coia V; Sansonetti B; Paoli G; Tofanelli S; Spedini G; Destro-Bisol G (2002)
      Ten protein coding loci (6-PGD, A1-AT, ACP1, CaII, ESD, GC, GPX1, Hbβ, PGM1, and TF) were analyzed in the Mbenzele Pygmies from the Central African Republic. The frequency data were used to calculate the genetic distances ...
    • Variation at 16 STR loci in Rwandans (Hutu) and implications on profile frequency estimation in Bantu-speakers 

      Tofanelli S; Boschi I; Bertoneri S; Coia V; Taglioli L; Franceschi M; Destro-Bisol G; Pascali V; Paoli G (2003)
      A data set of 16 autosomal STRs (the 13 CODIS loci plus HumCD4, HumFES, HumF13A1) was obtained in a sample of 52 unrelated Hutus from Rwanda. Geno-types at all loci met Hardy-Weinberg expectations with the exception of ...
