Extended Y-chromosome investigation suggests post-Glacial migrations of modern humans into East Asia via the northern route ("evidence of geographic distribution and Y-STR diversity indicate that haplogroup Q-M242 (the ancestral haplogroup of the native American-specific haplogroup Q1a3a-M3) and R-M207 probably migrated into East Asia via the northern route")

Genetic Differences between Five European Populations ("several genes have not previously been reported as stratified within European populations, indicating that they might also have provided selective advantages: [including] most intriguingly, FOXP2, implicated in speech development.")

He also erroneously claimed that composite picture is similar to the average White American. Maybe in Little Armenia.
