Roma Sequencing Study
Present day Roma genome were shaped by the extensive inbreeding and admixture during their Diaspora. Here, we shed light on the Roma demographic history by analyzing the whole genome sequence of 46 Roma individuals pertaining to four migrant groups in six European countries. The strong reduction in effective population size (~44%), that occurred around 2kya, was not masked by the subsequent high admixture in Middle Eastern and European countries.
