The history of human populations in the Next Generation Sequencing age

The development of NGS techniques has given a formidable impulse to the study of human evolution and the analysis of migration flows that have led to the diffusion of modern man. Different portions of the human genome (autosomal chromosomes, mitochondrial DNA, Y chromosome), which can be analysed both in ancient remains and in current samples, give distinct but complementary contributions to the reconstruction of our past, both on an individual and a population level. In this context, Sardinia, for its insular and central location, is an important window on the history of the Euro-Mediterranean population and summarizes the main population dynamics, well represented by the variability of the Y chromosome of the current Sardinians.

These themes will be addressed by Paolo Francalacci, population geneticist, Associate Professor of Genetics (University of Cagliari), Associated editor of BMC Evolutionary Biology.
