June Update

I have a total of 123 participants in the project right now who have sent me their raw data. Six of those have relatives participating and thus have to be filtered out for most analysis other than individual admixture percentages etc where I divide participants into small groups.Укладка дикого камня

The following groups are represented:

Most are 23andme data while 4 are from FTDNA.

We are getting close to 100 South Asian participants.

Austroasiatic Dataset

Razib pointed out the paper "Population Genetic Structure in Indian Austroasiatic speakers: The Role of Landscape Barriers and Sex-specific Admixture" by Gyaneshwer Chaubey, Mait Metspalu, Ying Choi, Reedik Mägi, Irene Gallego Romero, Pedro Soares, Mannis van Oven, Doron M. Behar, Siiri Rootsi, Georgi Hudjashov, Chandana Basu Mallick, Monika Karmin, Mari Nelis, Jüri Parik, Alla Goverdhana Reddy, Ene Metspalu, George van Driem, Yali Xue, Chris Tyler-Smith, Kumarasamy Thangaraj, Lalji Singh, Maido Remm, Martin B. Richards, Marta Mirazon Lahr, Manfred Kayser, Richard Villems and Toomas Kivisild to me 36 hours ago. And I have their dataset now.

I have been told that the data will hopefully be in the NCBI GEO database soon.

There are a total of 41 samples with 527,319 SNPs in the data. There are Bonda, Savara, Juang and Gadaba from Orissa; Santhal and Asur from Jharkand; Kharia from Chattishgarh; Ho from Bihar; Khasi and Garo from Meghalaya; and some (15) Burmese.

PS. I have created a separate page for references where I link to the papers which led to the datasets I am using.
