Free articles at The American Journal of Human Genetics

I think I've mentioned this before, but I suggest that readers go check out the archives of The American Journal of Human Genetics. They are free from November 1997 to 6 months before the present. Check out their search page, if you don't have institutional access already, chances are you'll be less interested in the technical papers, so the easiest way to find articles related the type of historical population genetics that I look for is to type country or ethnic group names. For instance, assume I'm interested in the Hui people of China (Muslims who speak Chinese). The search returns: Deafness-Linked 12S rRNA C1494T Mutation. Interesting, but probably not what you're looking for. But, this also comes up: Y-Chromosomal Insights into Central Asia. Most of searches keyed to ethnic groups will have some articles like the latter that allow you to not focus on novel techniques or elaboration of genetic models, but rather use genetics as a means to an end.
