Admixture (Ref3 K=11) HRP0101-HRP0110

Here are the admixture results using Reference 3 for Harappa participants HRP0101 to HRP0110.

You can see the participant results in a spreadsheet as well as their ethnic breakdowns and the reference population results.

Here's our bar chart and table. Remember you can click on the legend or the table headers to sort.

If the above interactive charts are not working, here's a static bar graph.

HRP0101 has 1/8th Gujarati Patel ancestry but has 0% Onge component while the expected value would be about 3%. Also, his/her being 1/2 Romany is not reflected in a 70% European percentage.

HRP0105, an Iranian Kurd, is similar to the Iraqi Kurd HRP0059.

HRP0108, a Halai Bhatia, looks mostly like Punjabis and Sindhis in the admixture results.

HRP0110, Mexican/Jewish, is half Native American and likely a quarter Jewish.


  1. I welcome the second Kurdish participant (HRP105) in the Harappa Ancestry Project.
    I wonder how he clusters with me (HRP0059) in the Middle Eastern context.

  2. ...including these other Harappa Ancestry Project participants:

    HRP0102 Yemeni (1/2), Iran/Turkey (1/2)

  3. Interesting new participants. Is the Halai Bhatia a Sindhi as well (like the Thathai Bhatia)?

    • Also, have you scrapped the standard K=12 runs altogether now, Zack?

    • No, not from Sindh (to my knowledge).

      • Great, I see it's up. I think this admixture run at K=13 is generally relevant (for all participants) whereas this one at K=14 is particularly relevant from a South Asian perspective. Just my two cents, and at the end of the day it's your choice, according to your convenience and what you feel is most appropriate.

        • I am curious as to where he/she is from, so it'd be great if you could find out what is the Halai Bhatia's region of origin, and also whether the Thathai Bhatia is a Sindhi Rajput. Whenever you have the time to correspond accordingly with these participants, of course. An interesting trend Thorfinn over at {BrownPundits} and a few others noticed is that most groups who are (and believe themselves to be) traditionally descended from the Indo-Aryans, or at least have a sizable admixture from this ancient ethno-linguistic group, tend to exhibit a little more of the European component as compared to the S.W Asian. For instance;

          Punjabi averages (n=9)
          SW Asian : 11.55%
          European : 16.78%

          ^I didn't include yourself and your sibling in that due to your Egyptian ancestry.

          Sindhi (n=3)
          SW Asian : 15%
          European : 18.33%

          ^ Includes the Shikarpuri Sindhi, Thathai Bhatia and Halai Bhatia (assuming he/she is Sindhi - based on what I've read about them)

          Kashmiri (n=2)
          SW Asian : 12.5%
          European : 18%

          Kashmiri Pandit (Reich et al; n=5)
          SW Asian: 12%
          European : 15%
          Pathan (Ref.3; n=22)
          SW Asian : 17%
          European : 19%

          Even the southern-most Brahmins exhibit the same (averages of Tamil speaking Brahmins; n=11)
          SW Asian: 7.18%
          European: 9.18%

          The European component is especially elevated in HRP16, HRP79 and HRP103 (the latest T.N Brahmin) as compared to the rest of the Tamil Brahmins. HRP72 is an exception in this case, though.

        • Hala is a town in central Sindh
