  • Tracing Arab-Islamic inheritance in madagascar | Open Access

    Capredon, M., Brucato, N., Tonasso, L., Choesmel-Cadamuro, V., Ricaut, F.-X., Razafindrazaka, H., Rakotondrabe, A. B., Ratolojanahary, M. A., Randriamarolaza, L.-P., Champion, B., and Dugoujon, J.-M. (2013). Tracing Arab-Islamic inheritance in madagascar: Study of the y-chromosome and mitochondrial DNA in the antemoro. PLoS ONE, 8(11):e80932+.

    Abstract:
    Madagascar is located at the crossroads of the Asian and African worlds and is therefore of particular interest for studies on human population migration. Within the large human diversity of the Great Island, we focused our study on a particular ethnic group, the Antemoro. Their culture presents an important Arab-Islamic influence, but the question of an Arab biological inheritance remains unresolved. We analyzed paternal (n=129) and maternal (n=135) lineages of this ethnic group. Although the majority of Antemoro genetic ancestry comes from sub-Saharan African and Southeast Asian gene pools, we observed in their paternal lineages two specific haplogroups (J1 and T1) linked to Middle Eastern origins. This inheritance was restricted to some Antemoro sub-groups. Statistical analyses tended to confirm significant Middle Eastern genetic contribution. This study gives a new perspective to the large human genetic diversity in Madagascar.

    similar paper 2 years ago stated that ydna T and J1 are in madagscar.

    T1 ydna in africa is younger than the rest of the middle-east, europe and central asia........it went to africa via Balochi/Gedrosian area ( that is from eastern Persia )
    They where good sailors ( quoted as "the phoenicians of the indian ocean" ). T1 crossed to Oman, then yemen, then all of east africa from somalia to as far south as mafia Island, past zanzibar and madagscar.
    I do not know where J1 entered , but IIRC it was from yemen.

    T1 and J1 where involved in the arab slave trade of african peoples. slaves where sent to Oman for trade
