This special issue of Human Heredity has been stimulated by a scientific meeting held in Geneva, Switzerland, in January 2013 as the closing conference of a European COST Action (BM0803), also supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation. The main objective of the conference was to round up our knowledge on the genetic diversity and origins of European populations, by taking into account both ancient and modern molecular data and sophisticated data analyses and computer simulation methods that have been developed in the last few decades within the frame of population genetics. As suggested by the subtitle of this issue, the questions we address(ed) are related both to the demographic history of European populations, a subject still at the centre of a heated scientific debate, and to the clinical consequences and implications of such a history, in terms of risk factors in both natural and clinical contexts.

Abstract

This special issue of Human Heredity has been stimulated by a scientific meeting held in Geneva, Switzerland, in January 2013 as the closing conference of a European COST Action (BM0803), also supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation. The main objective of the conference was to round up our knowledge on the genetic diversity and origins of European populations, by taking into account both ancient and modern molecular data and sophisticated data analyses and computer simulation methods that have been developed in the last few decades within the frame of population genetics. As suggested by the subtitle of this issue, the questions we address(ed) are related both to the demographic history of European populations, a subject still at the centre of a heated scientific debate, and to the clinical consequences and implications of such a history, in terms of risk factors in both natural and clinical contexts.
