Genome Russia (GR) study is a national collaboration to expand our understanding of demographic history of peoples of Russia, to get deep insight into population genetics and to create a detailed genetic map of a country. Here we report analyses of matrilineal and patrilineal inheritance derived from whole genome sequencing data collected in the framework of the project. We examined sequences of 171 Y-chromosomes and 322 mtDNA ascertained from 14 ethnicities. We determined haplogroups for both Y-chromosomes and mtDNA sequences and estimated their distribution across the country. We performed phylogenetic and population genetic analyses for mtDNA and Y-chromosomes separately and then compared the results to reveal genetic history of indigenous groups living in Russia.

Thank you for the presentation, it looks interesting. I have a few questions. How could you explain that Tatars are closely related to Khanty and Umurts on the MDS plot rather than Yakuts and Bashkirs?

And what variability did the first and second components have?
