(Mostly) aDNA Studies on Human Demographic Past in Northeast Europe

Join the BlueJeans Meeting

While the language map of Europe is dominated by Indo-European languages we see the spread of Uralic (Finno Ugric) languages in northeast Europe (and Hungary). Is there anything in the genetic diversity of these populations that connects them specifically with each other and with their linguistic relatives in western Russia and Siberia? What do aDNA studies reveal about the population demographic history in NE Europe and in Estonia in particular. And finally i’m going to talk about our recent efforts in filling the aDNA gap in East European Plain.
