Study Description

Island Southeast Asia and Oceania host one of the world’s richest assemblages of human phenotypic, linguistic and cultural diversity. We compiled ~9.7 Mb of Y chromosome sequence from a diverse sample of over 380 men from this region, including 126 from Indonesian islands, first reported here. The granularity of this dataset allows us to fully resolve and date the regional Y chromosome phylogeny. This improved Y chromosome topology highlights localized events with important historical implications, including pre-Holocene contact between Mainland and Island Southeast Asia, ongoing interactions between Australia and the Papuan world, and a sustained period of diversification following the flooding of the ancient Sunda and Sahul continents as the insular landscape of today formed. The high-resolution phylogeny of the Y chromosome presented here thus enables a detailed exploration of past isolation, interaction and change in one of the world’s least understood regions.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
The IYDP dataset includes BAM files of 126 Y chromosomes extracted from whole genome sequences. These are from individuals from a broad range of Indonesian islands - communities close to mainland Asia through to New Guinea. The original whole genome sequencing libraries were prepared using TruSeq DNA PCR-Free and TruSeq Nano DNA HT kits depending on DNA quantity. 150 bp paired-end sequencing was performed on the Illumina HiSeq X sequencer. Individuals were sequenced to expected mean depth of ... (Show More)
