Leherensuge reference links: Genetics

Leherensuge on Genetics:
[Updated Oct. 1]

In reverse timestamp order (newest first) within each category. For quick reference. Leherensuge is my old blog that gave birth to this one.
Mitochondrial DNA
Reconstruction of mtDNA spread in Eurasia (again) (my state-of-the-art reconstruction)
Y-DNA
Paper on African mtDNA (trans-Saharan flow and Orientalist fantasies)
Eurasian Y-DNA note (my state-of-the-art Y-DNA flows’ reconstruction)
Autosomal DNA
Paper on human autosomal phylogenetics (organizing the genome in a phylogeny)
Central Eurasian genetic specificity detected (neither East nor West but themselves)
Jews are ‘Phoenicians’, Palestinians are ‘Jews’ (the truth of Western Jewish and Palestinian origins finally clarified)
Genetic comparisons of Basques and Jews (separately: two papers discussed in same article)
East Asian autosomal genetics (second round) (third look at the HUGO paper)
East Asian autosomal DNA (working note) (second look at the HUGO paper)
Genetics of the Mlabri, Austroasiatic hunter-gatherers in Thailand (East Asian autosomal DNA phylogenetic study supporting a southern origin)
East Asians originated in SE Asia (first look at the HUGO paper)
Ancient DNA
X Woman (Denisova finger)
Neanderthal genes less likely to be with us (some genetic myths dispelled)
Molecular clock
Sentence of the year (molecular compass
Other
The ‘Homer Simpson’ gene found (a gene that makes mice and us stupid)
A couple of genetic papers I’d love to read (African autosomal structure showing Mozambican difference and a good research on European R1b, got the second already)
Positive selection favoring disease genes (counterintuitive dynamic equilibrium)
Breaking the seals of Life (functional bacterial DNA engineered out of chemicals)
Statistical insignificance (not strictly on genetics but relevant for the field)
Polyamory prevents extinction (in fruit flies at least)
Severe criticism of Bayesian phylogenetics (favors maximum likelihood instead)
Mice without father live longer and other genetic news (bad prospects for GWAS, eigenvectors vs. PCA)
Genes, brains and fractals (quick notes: Pygmy height genes specially)

Metal Ages and Protohistory
Neolithic and Chalcolithic
Hoabinhian Neolithic site (and other Archaeonews)
Again on Neolithic and European Y-DNA (largely about archaeology in fact)
Neolithic ‘cathedral’ at Orkney (and other news from British and Irish Prehistory)
Upper Paleolithic and Epipaleolithic
Paleolithic Chinese ate fish regularly (update mentioning coastal habitat in Eritrea 125,000 years ago)
Middle and Lower Paleolithic
Late human evolution maps (1.3 Ma to 60 Ka)


Other

Archaeonews review Aug 2010 (Indian Megalithic ware, bone buttons of Mesoamerica, ancestor stones destroyed in Nigeria, oldest British house)
Archaeonews review June 2010 (Neanderthal-Homo divergence surely very old…)
Archaeonews review May 2010 (Otley cairn, coastal migration of Paleo-Indians, Neolithic Omani cemetery, Dilmun mounds will be researched and then destroyed, Tamil Nadu stone circles nearly destroyed…)
Archaeonews review Jun 2009 (oldest Taiwan hearth 20 Ka old, Starcevo culture 100 years older)
