    drought of ancient DNA papers on prehistoric Europe/SW Asia

    Seems to have dried up after so much excitement. It is pretty well the only thing that keeps me interested in genetic history these days. Anyone know when some new papers will be along? I do a quick check on Eurogenes to see if anything new has come out but its been a bit tumbleweed after a great run of ancient DNA papers.

    Sometimes after a long drought come torrential rains. We hear rumors of things going on, but so far we're still waiting. We need some breakthrough that'll make aDNA analysis as obvious and quick as radiocarbon dating. The problem might not be just money.

    Yep. Things are pretty dull around here.

    Last fall, Oleg Balanovsky mentioned that there are three incoming papers, from Reich's group, Willerslev's group and Metspalu's group(Estonian Biocentre). He said that they should be published soon, may be even before Christmas. This April, during Genome Russia(http://sk.ru/foundation/events/april2016/genomerussia/) conference, he mentioned these papers again, adding that they will include genomes from Russia. Here is the quote:

    Сегодня в разных статьях опубликованы уже 53 секвенированных генома из России, но в ближайшем будущем выйдут три статьи в Nature, в которых будут еще опубликованы российские геномы, и таким образом, благодаря Эснонскому биоцентру, команде Дэвида Райха (Медицинский центр в Бостоне), команде Эске Виррерслева (Дания) их число составит более 350.
    Translation:

    As today, there are 53 sequenced genomes from Russia, published in different papers, however in the nearest future there will be three papers in Nature, that will include genomes from Russia, and therefore, thanks to Estonian Biocentre, David Reich's team(Medical Center in Boston), Eske Willerslev's team(Denmark), the number of sequenced genomes from Russia will be more than 350
    Now, my speculation: though it's never mentioned, I have strong suspicion that Reich's and Willerslev's papers will include ancient genomes. Apparently topics of the papers are similar, so they decided to publish them simultaneously(like two papers about Anglo-Saxons this January). So I guess for some reason the publication of one of this papers get delayed and the others were delayed too.

    The possible topic of papers? I would guess East Asia. There are no full ancient genomes from that area, there are samples from Transbaikal region of Russia in Willerslev's lab, there are samples from Russian Far East in Reich's lab. Now, all of that is my speculation and could be completely wrong.

    The drought is about to break.

    Is there any way to know how soon it will? This week? Next week? In a month?

    Yes. Given where we are in this stage of the game (the "post-modern population inference era"), aDNA is the driving force in exploring human migration patterns and evolutionary direction.

    Additionally, one can only interpret our current aDNA roster so deeply. As a pool of enthusiasts, we're approaching the barrel-scraping point with respect to our inferences and current analytical tools, or the topics preferentially deemed to be more interesting.

    We will probably be seeing some aDNA from across Eurasia quite soon, as others have hinted. I'm particularly interested in what the Transbaikal, Natufian and northern Iranian genomes would reveal.

    Brace yourselves folks. And don't make any plans for late tonight/early tomorrow.
