Instituto de Investigação e Inovação em Saúde, Universidade do Porto, Porto, Portugal
Hum Genet 134:1013-27. 2015..Bantu speakers share lineages with both Nilotic groups, and also harbour East African lineages not found in Western Nilotic speakers, likely due to assimilating indigenous populations since arriving in the region ~3000 years ago. ..
