Genetic relationships among eight Siberian and Central Asian ethnic groups were examined using autosomal microsatellite loci. Genetic similarity of Buryats and Evenks, as well as close relationships between Tuvinians and Kyrgyzes, most likely resulting from the Altai-Slavic co-ancestry of their gene pools, was demonstrated. Studies of gene flow in these populations demonstrated that, in general, Turkic ethnic groups of Southern Siberia (Altaians and Tuvinians) were the recipients of more intense gene flow compared to Eastern Siberian populations belonging to Altaic family. The local Buryat populations displayed substantial differences in the direction and the level of deviation of the observed gene diversity from the expected one, which was probably caused by the differences in the degree of isolation and/or in effective population sizes.
