Human genetics

Human genetics

  • Genetic history of indigenous peoples of the Americas
    The genetic history of indigenous peoples of the Americas primarily focuses on Human Y-chromosome DNA haplogroups and Human mitochondrial DNA haplogroups.
  • Dimple
    A dimple (also known as a gelasin) is a small natural indentation in the flesh on a part of the human body, most notably in the cheek or on the chin.
  • Phenylthiocarbamide
    Phenylthiocarbamide (PTC), also known as phenylthiourea (PTU), is an organosulfur thiourea containing a phenyl ring.
  • Clinodactyly
    Clinodactyly /ˈklaɪnˌoʊdæktɪli/ (from the Ancient Greek κλίνειν klínein meaning "to bend" and δάκτυλος dáktulos meaning "digit") is a medical term describing the curvature of a digit (a finger or toe) in the plane of the palm, most commonly the fifth finger (the "little finger") towards the adjacent fourth finger (the "ring finger").
  • Genetics and archaeogenetics of South Asia
    The study of the genetics and archaeogenetics of the ethnic groups of South Asia aims at uncovering these groups' genetic history.
  • Consanguinity
    Consanguinity ("blood relation", from the Latin consanguinitas) is the property of being from the same kinship as another person.
  • Human genome
    <section begin=lead />The human genome is the complete set of nucleic acid sequence for humans (Homo sapiens), encoded as DNA within the 23 chromosome pairs in cell nuclei and in a small DNA molecule found within individual mitochondria.
  • Human skin color
    Human skin color ranges in variety from the darkest brown to the lightest hues.
  • Genetic history of Europe
    The genetic history of Europe is complicated because European populations have a complicated demographic history, including many successive periods of population growth.
  • 2q37 monosomy
    2q37 monosomy is a rare genetic disorder caused by a deletion of a segment at the end of chromosome 2.
  • Heritability of IQ
    Research on heritability of IQ infers, from the similarity of IQ in closely related persons, the proportion of variance of IQ among individuals in a study population that is associated with genetic variation within that population.
  • Human genetic clustering
    Human genetic clustering is the degree to which human genetic variation can be partitioned into a small number of groups or clusters.
  • Macro-haplogroup L (mtDNA)
    In human mitochondrial genetics, L is the mitochondrial DNA macro-haplogroup that is at the root of the human mtDNA phylogenetic tree.
