Peuplement du sud de la Sibérie et de l'Altaï à l'âge du Bronze : apport de la paléogénétique

Abstract : The present work has focused on the settlement of the South Siberia and the Altai mountains during the Bronze Age (III-I millennium BC), period during which the Eurasian Steppes knew a lot of population movements. The molecular analyses were performed on 69 ancient samples. The used strategy consisted in the study of maternal and paternal lineages and autosomal markers informative of biogeographical ancestry (AIM) and physical appearance. Taken together, these results show an evolution of the genetic pool in this area during the Bronze Age. The low effective observed in each cultural group and the funeral recruitment could of course have induced a bias in some analyses. Nevertheless, these molecular data gave new elements to understand the settlement of this region which seems to be a complex process that it will be necessary to deepen with new paleogenetic even paleogenomic studies.
