The Native American populations are, since the first contact with Europeans, exposed to a myriad of pathogens from which they have been isolated for more than 15 centuries since their differentiation in Beringia. Examples abound of epidemics that plagued post-contact America, leading to the extinction of diverse native populations. Recent studies involving ancient and present-day indivi...
Native American populations are the human group less studied as regards its genetic variability. Although the few studies using genomic array had helped to better understand the Native American populations structure, the genotyping platforms of this technique are based on the existing genetic variation of African, Asian and European populations, not taking into account the Native Americ...
The admixture of three continental ancestry components, European, African and Native American, has shaped the Brazilian population. Historical record suggests that the slaves came from different regions of Africa (e.g. Angola, Congo, Mozambique), but the way these groups dispersed and admixed with native americans and europeans after arriving in Brazil are still poorly documented. In re...
First humans arrived in America about 15,000 years ago through Bering Strait, a land bridge connecting the northwest American continent to the northeast Asian continent during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM). After entering America, first Americans quickly spread themselves across the continent, inhabiting all altitudes in less than 5,000 years. During such expansion, these first migrant...
