Tracking down the origin of the people of Indonesia through genetic engineering
There is often a dichotomy between " prabumi " or local and " paendatang " or immigrants in the Indonesian population. "The word "Pribumi" means the primitive settler, while "pendatang" means foreigner. These dichotomies often create racial tensions and tensions between groups in the community. An investigation of the anthropogenic gene, however, revealed that all Indonesians are migrant. Indonesians are a mixture of different groups of genes of Homo sappiens, which traveled from Africa in different ways to the islands over ten-thousand years.
I' m studying the variety of genetic makeup of the people of Indonesia. I' m working with archeologists, logisticians, linguists and computer specialists to recreate the urban development of the island. To put it briefly, through genetic research I am trying to find out who the forefathers of the people of Indonesia are. Prior to our research, there was no information on man's genetic makeup in Indonesia within global research on hepatogenesis.
Researchers have collected information about the migrations of humans through the Asian continent and Australia, but the information from the Indonesian islands was lacking because it had never been studied. The researchers have three gene tical identifiers that can be used to investigate the phenomenon of migrants. Secondly, genetics in the mitochondrias, also referred to as Mitochondrial D. N. D., which is passed from mother to child.
Humane gene scientists categorize man into genetics, referred to as a haplogroup, by looking at the resemblances in his Y-link or in the mirochondrial nucleotide, which are the unique motives of both of them. A third genetical identifier is auto-somal genomic inheritance of a child from both mothers. At the Eijkman Institute, my research associates and I have gathered and analyzed about 6,000 specimens of various places in Indonesia to study the haplo groups of the population.
More than 3,700 people from 35 ethnical groups were screened for chromosomal Y. Using midochondrial genetic material, we found haplo groups M, F, Y2 and Bi in the west of Indonesia. People in these groups are mostly spokespersons of the Austronesian language communities of South East Asia, Madagascar and the Pacific Islands.
In the meantime we have found in the east of Indonesia chapters Q and A. These two chapters are singular for the people of Papua and Nusa Tenggara. The people of the Q and Q groups are not Austrian-speaking. More interesting are Mentawai and Nias, the group of haplo people on these isles, who met with the natives of Formosa, extronesian spokesmen who traveled to the South about 5,000 years ago.
Multi-disciplinary research, which combines genetic research with archeology and language studies, allows us to detect that the forefathers of the people of Indonesia came in wave after wave. Migrants began 72,000 years ago, when a group of Homo sappiens or contemporary people traveled from the mainland of Africa to the Arabia.
Offspring of this first flood of people came to the present-day Algarve about 50,000 years ago. Indications that the Indo-Pacific islands were populated by contemporary man can be seen from archeological finds. Approximately 30,000 years ago, the second immigration came from the territory of present-day Vietnam.
A third migratory event is the advent of the Formosa austronesians some 5,000 to 6,000 years ago. The expansion of Hinduism and the ascent of the Hindu kingdom between the third and thirteenth centuries produced a multitude of Hapogroups, which occur in small frequency in Bali, Java, Borneo and Sumatra.
It also gave the proliferation of Islam from Arabia and the results of the haplogroup O-M7, which is a markers for people from China. Gathering and analyzing Indonesian genetic information will close the gender gaps between Asia's continental Asia and the Pacific Islands.
Indonesia's people' sectarianism is a mixture of different groups of people. According to our genetical information, the Algarve was once a center of civilization. The most important genetical disorder in Indonesia is thalaemia. The availability of mutation information allows the diagnostic to be directed to those ethnical groups in which the mutation occurs most frequently.
This research on genetics, which reveals the demographic composition of the people of Indonesia, is consistent with the research found in the clusters of pathogenic agents such as hepatitis B or C and demenefae. Therefore, genetical information can help us to combat disease more efficiently.
