Admixture K=12, HRP0061-HRP0070

Here are their ethnic backgrounds and the results spreadsheet. Also relevant are the reference I admixture results.

If you can't see the interactive bar chart above, here's a static image.

I dare you to generalize!

PS. This was run using Admixture version 1.04.


  1. The Uttar Pradesh Brahmin individuals have similar admixture proportions to the other North Western sub continental participants.

  3. What is HRP0051's specific caste? In contrast to the Bihari Kayastha, the UP Kayashta is fairly similar in terms of both admixture results and PCA clustering. I wonder what would explain this..

  4. * In terms of both admixture results and PCA clustering to the Indo-Gangetic Hindi belt Brahmins.

  5. Some interesting new participants you have - the Bhatia Rajput, the Hebbar Iyengar and the Khatri Punjabi/Sindhi especially are interesting. Can't wait for your new batch of K=4/9/12 analyses!

    BTW Zack, is the Punjabi part of your ancestry prior to Islam, Rajput as well? Going by the last names you listed at 23andMe you do seem to be a Punjabi Rajput.

    • Indeed lot of interesting enw participants , btw how do you know the punjabi is khatri?

      As for bhatti , it is also very closely linked to jatts as well, there are overlaps between rajputs and several jatt clans . I'm not sure about bhopal though.
