HarappaWorld Oracle Update

I have updated HarappaWorld Oracle with the latest group averages.

You can download it and use the instructions here and here.

Also, please note the limitations of the Oracle.

HarappaWorld HRP0298-HRP0311

I have added the HarappaWorld Admixture results for HRP0298-HRP0311 to the individual spreadsheet.

Do note that the admixture components do not necessarily represent real ancestral populations. Also, the names I have chosen for the components should be thought of as mnemonics to ease discussion. I chose them based on which populations in my data these components peaked in. They do not tell anything directly about ancestral populations. The best way to look at these admixture results is by comparing individuals and populations. Finally, the standard error estimates on these results can be about 1%. Therefore, it is entirely possible that your 1% exotic admixture result is just noise.

I have also updated the group averages.

We have an Indian adoptee participant, HRP0303. Their results seem closest to non-Brahmin Tamils.


Due to various reasons and to avoid hassle for myself, I'll no longer accept any Romany/Roma/Gypsy to the project.
