While I am analyzing the data, checking for errors and making sure the results I am getting are valid, here is some information about participants till now.
So far I have got 11 participants send me their raw data. Of these eleven, ten have some South Asian ancestry.
The regions/ethnicities they cover are:
- Tamil Nadu
Of these, Punjabis are the only ones I have multiple samples of. So I definitely need more samples of the other ethnicities. And there are lots of ethnicities/regions I haven't gotten any participants in.
It would be great for this project if we got a few participants from each state/province of India and Pakistan. So if you know someone who is from our target regions and has tested with 23andme, please spread the word.
If you tested with 23andme during their Christmas sale, I am hearing that results are going to start coming in starting today.
