Study Description

Although genetic studies of modern Oceanians have revealed varying levels of admixture with populations of East Asian ancestry, attributed to the Austronesian expansion, the early peopling history of Oceania remains poorly characterized. Additionally, it is currently unknown whether and how the settlement of the Pacific was accompanied by genetic adaptation to island environments, and if archaic introgression facilitated this process in Oceanians, who present the highest worldwide levels of combined Neanderthal and Denisovan ancestry. This study reports the first whole genome-based survey that addresses a wide range of questions related to the demographic and adaptive history of Pacific populations.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
This dataset includes high-coverage genomes (~36x) of 317 individuals from 20 populations of the Pacific (Taiwan, Philippines, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu archipelago), described in “Genomic insights into population history and biological adaptation in Oceania”, by Choin, Mendoza-Revilla, Arauna, and colleagues (Nature 2021). The data is made of 331 fastq files.
