    North African populations are distinct from sub-Saharan Africans based on cultural, linguistic, and phenotypic attributes; however, the time and the extent of genetic divergence between populations north and south of the ...
  • Lazaridis, Iosif; Comas, David, 1969-; Reich, David (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
    We report genome-wide ancient DNA from 44 ancient Near Easterners ranging in time between ~12,000 and 1,400 bc, from Natufian hunter-gatherers to Bronze Age farmers. We show that the earliest populations of the Near East ...
  • Elhaik, Eran; Comas, David, 1969-; Bertranpetit, Jaume, 1952-; Martínez Cruz, Begoña; Wells, R. Spencer; The Genographic Consortium (Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
    The search for a method that utilizes biological information to predict humans’ place of origin has occupied scientists for millennia. Over the past four decades, scientists have employed genetic data in an effort to achieve ...

    Recent studies of haplotype diversity in a number of genomic regions have suggested that long stretches of DNA are preserved in the same chromosome, with little evidence of recombination events. The knowledge of the extent ...
  • Sudmant, Peter H.; Eichler, Evan E.; Comas, David, 1969- (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2015)
    In order to explore the diversity and selective signatures of duplication and deletion human copy-number variants (CNVs), we sequenced 236 individuals from 125 distinct human populations. We observed that duplications ...

    Most great ape genetic variation remains uncharacterized1, 2; however, its study is critical for understanding population history3, 4, 5, 6, recombination7, selection8 and susceptibility to disease9, 10. Here we sequence ...
  • Biagini, Simone Andrea, 1983- (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2019-07-17)
