Dienekes generated a new major data dump of ADMIXTURE results. In comparison to previous such experiments:
I post here an interesting table of African ancestry (North Africa, East African and West African) in all populations included. Only a few European populations : Portuguese (about 10%), Spanish, South Italians etc get numbers > 1%. All others are below 0.5%:
- The focus is entirely on West Eurasians (Caucasoids).
- He has excluded all potential relatives from the source datasets, as well as several populations that tend to create uninformative clusters of their own (e.g., Druze or Ashkenazi Jews); exceptions are populations of great anthropological interest (e.g., Basques).
- He has included all relevant Dodecad Ancestry Project populations with 5+ participants.
- He has developed a new way of "framing" the region of interest by choosing appropriate sets of individuals from outside of it.
