Genomic insights into the relationship between ancient Japanese and modern East Eurasians

To investigate genomic relationships among ancient Japanese hunter-gatherers (Jomon and paleolithic Ryukyuan), rice farmers (Yayoi and Kofun), and modern East Eurasians, we determined the sequence of their mitochondrial genome and nuclear genomes. We found genetic uniqueness and genetic substructure of ancient Japanese, not only hunter-gatherers but also rice farmers. I would like to introduce the preliminary results.
