HarappaWorld HRP0312-HRP0327

I have added the HarappaWorld Admixture results for HRP0312-HRP0327 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.

I got a participant from the Geno 2.0 Project, HRP0326 an Afghan Pashtun. While I have calculated their HarappaWorld Admixture results, please note that Geno2 has only about 14,000 SNPs in common with HarappaWorld. Thus these results are very noisy.

Gujaratis HarappaWorld Admixture

Someone asked for the individual HarappaWorld Admixture results for the Gujarati B from HapMap.

To refresh your memory, the Gujarati B are those individuals who do not form part of the big closely clustered Gujarati cluster.

I decided to include HGDP Sindhis as well as Gujaratis, Rajasthanis, Maharashtrians, etc from Harappa Ancestry Project in the list so the Gujaratis can be compared to the people of neighboring regions.

You can check the spreadsheet too.

UPDATE: I have added the Thathai Bhatia and Halai Bhatia participants that I had forgotten.

Pathan/Pashtun Admixture Results

Someone asked for the individual HarappaWorld Admixture results for the Pathans and Pashtuns from HGDP (23) and Harappa Ancestry Project (3). So here they are.

You can check the spreadsheet too.
