Limited Effect of Y Chromosome Variation on Coronary Artery Disease and Mortality in UK Biobank—Brief Report
The effect of genetic variation in the male-specific region of the Y chromosome (MSY) on coronary...
I don't remember seeing it before, so, for fun, here're frequencies of haplogroups in FTDNA tree (not projects) by flags, which are based on the self-reported MDKA's locations. Although these frequencies are based on about 84,000 samples, they don't necessarily represent modern frequencies in...
May you get better soon, Angela and Duarte.
My sister-in-law just tested positive. This variant is spreading rapidly. It multiplies faster in airways, but slower in the lungs. I believe you should be ok, especially after three doses.
I got two shots already. I haven't got this thing yet, but I...
Bold is mine.
"Also intriguing is the new study's finding that there was a rapid increase - during the Iron Age - in the frequency of a gene variant for digesting raw milk, something that's commonly known as lactose tolerance.
The transition to agriculture occurred relatively late in Eastern Europe, leading researchers to debate whether it was a gradual, interactive process or a colonization event. In the forest and forest-steppe regions of Ukraine...

The threads could be merged, I think.
Trans-cultural diffusion (in opposition to demic diffusion)
Exclusive: 'Universal vaccine' that can conquer all variants could be available within a year thanks to British scientists
I've read that about 40% of the French would not get a vaccine against Covid. I'm impressed.
This is an interesting article about it.
How to take on Covid conspiracy theories
As vaccines are rolled out around the globe, we are more vulnerable than ever to disinformation...
- Lab "created" the virus, which was spread out (un)intentionally.
- A natural virus was released on purpose.
- A natural virus was being studied, and (accidently) "escaped" from the lab.
- None of the above.
Afaik, the first alternative would have been discarded, but not...
We should assume certain migration happened anytime "after" the actual TMRCA of the branch, not necessarily "at" the TMRCA. That's generally speaking.
Of course, when possible, some hypotheses involving more specific periods could emerge, based on wider phylogeny, on what we know about...
This is the preprint, I guess:
