No Comments

I am sick and tired of the weird comments posted by various people as well as those who feed the trolls.http://abisgroup.ru

I do not have the time or energy to actively monitor and moderate comments.

Therefore, there will be no comments allowed here any more.

Afghan Dataset

A paper, Afghan Hindu Kush: Where Eurasian Sub-Continent Gene Flows Converge by Julie Di Cristofaro, Erwan Pennarun, Stéphane Mazières, Natalie M. Myres, Alice A. Lin, Shah Aga Temori, Mait Metspalu, Ene Metspalu, Michael Witzel, Roy J. King, Peter A. Underhill, Richard Villems, Jacques Chiaroni was published at PLoS One about the genetics of the people of Afghanistan.

Thanks to Mait Metspalu, the data is available online. It consists of:

  • 5 Hazara
  • 5 Pashtun
  • 5 Tajik
  • 4 Turkmen
  • 5 Uzbek

Here are the HarappaWorld Admixture results for the samples in this dataset.

You can check the spreadsheet too.

Tadjik1_44Af and Pashtun2_6Af seem to be outliers and there's a possibility they are mislabeled. I would like to look into these two samples further before I calculate group averages.

You can compare these Pashtun results to HGDP Pathan and HAP Pashtun results.
