    I saw the video of a lecture from a few years ago by Cunliffe. Horribly outdated and confused as far as population genetics go. He claimed that because R1b is most frequent and most R1b men are in...

    Some Global25 ancestry models of averaged Early Turkic and Late Antiquity Central-Eastern Asian population samples (ancient DNA), probably related to later Turks. The mixed makeup with very high East...

    Let me guess if I understood the OP properly: is the claim that the early Turkic people were not fully East Asian people or is it in fact, as it seems, claiming that they were mostly West Eurasian...

    The actual problem and urgency is not that records are being broken. It is rather that records have been broken in an increasingly lower time gap between them. In other words, extreme events (too...

    Well, but Indo-Europeans were not the only pastoral people, and legend says it that Abraham came from Northern Mesopotamia, therefore from typically Semitic lands (the source of many expansive...

    So, is your point that Covid-19 is no big deal and, therefore, has no need to be eradicated by mass vaccination because previous epidemics and pandemics killed more people (usually, by the way,...

    Latino-Faliscan looked so much like a group pushed to a small corner of the peninsula, and one which clearly came from Proto-Italic, not from an earlier Osco-Umbrian branch, tha I speculate (stress...

    What? "Ebola now"? Something tells me you misinterpreted a simple comment and didn't get a very basic comparison with a previous event to explain why your mortality rate calculus has zero relevance...

    That proportion of mortality rate makes no sense. That's like considering ebola extremely harmless because the number of people who have EVER died from ebola (not just in 1 year and a few months, as...

    With those extremely high distances, I seriously doubt the person who tested those models included source populations that represent Steppe admixture (like Yamnaya and CWC samples) and perhaps other...

    Wow! I heard today or yesterday some place recorded very close to 50ºC. That's astounding. I live in a 90% tropical country, Brazil, but even here temperatures reaching 40ºC are only ever experienced...

    Very interesting results, they look robust. What are the Anatolia_N (n=22) used? Do they include only those most distinctive from other Near Eastern clusters, like Boncuklu and Barcin, or are they...

    The origin of Proto-Italic in the area spanning Northeastern Italy, Croatia and Slovenia is pretty speculative, though plausible, as also is the path and timing of expansion of Italic languages...

    Well, considering that Semitic is the only language family attested in West/Southwest Asia (I personally guess other related Afro-Asiatic branches existed before, but they were superseded by the huge...

    That small but not negligible gene flow from the Levant, Caucasia and the Zagros/Iranian Plateau, which also explains how J2a, J2b and E1b1b were present in Neolithic Europe even when the Near...

    Wait, I'm confused. So is a largely Basal Eurasian individual part of the same cluster as Dzuduzana2 and sharing more drift with WHG/Villabruna cluster than with any other Paleolithic DNA sample? So...

    I think the PIE dialect continuum was diverse from the start in overall genetic makeup and Y-DNA distribution. Some groups had more CHG:EHG ratio than others, some had mainly R1b-L23, some mainly...

    R1b is in Europe since the Late Paleolithic, but the R1b found in 99% of the European males who carry R1b today - subclades of R1b-M269 - certainly came from easternmost Europe after the Early Copper...

    So is their "Swedish-like" basically Baltic IE-like in fact? Is that based on IA Swedish samples? I wonder if those were really Germanic Scandinavians, not Baltic people who once lived on the other...
