Genetic ancestries in northwest Cambodia

Black, M.L., Dufall, K., Wise, C., Sullivan, S. and Bittles, A.H. (2006) Genetic ancestries in northwest Cambodia. Annals of Human Biology, 33 (5-6). pp. 620-627.

A survey of the genetic ancestry of 125 Cambodian children resident in Siem Reap province was undertaken, based on eight Y-chromosome binary polymorphisms and sequencing of the mtDNA HV1 region. The data indicated a largely East Asian paternal ancestry and a local Southeast Asian maternal ancestry. The presence of Y-chromosomes P* and R1a1* was suggestive of a small but significant Indo-European male ancestral component, which probably reflects the history of Indian, and later European, influences on Cambodia.
