  1. Hi Angela, this is amazing! Thanks for posting!...

    Hi Angela, this is amazing! Thanks for posting! Paphos was a very vibrant and cosmopolitan city in Roman Cyprus. In fact, it was the island's capital back then..

    Can the people who suggest that R1b did not pass through the Eastern Mediterranean/Anatolia/Balkans explain the 30% prevalence of R1b among Armenians? Also, what about the 17% prevalence among...

    Yes indeed autosomal genetics show that Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots are largely indistinguishable genetically. Regarding the rhetorical question that you pose whether Turkish Cypriots are...
  4. What has happened to FTDNA's Y-DNA12 test??

    I am not sure if this only happens in my geographical region, but the Y-DNA12 (as well as the Y-DNA25) tests are suddenly out of stock from FTDNA's website! All you can find is a reduced price...

    2% Southeast Asian is a tiny fraction that may represent a very very ancient admixture event. May I ask if you also have southwest Asian ancestry as well? Southwest Asian admixture is present in...

    Regarding the other comments.. yes indeed, even though H is the predominant mtDNA haplogroup among Cypriots, the prevalence of haplogroup K is astonishingly high. I believe this is a result of...

    Hi Maciamo. Yes of course. Here is what I have from Irwin et al and Cypriot DNA project, combined (total n=166):

    haplogroup U (N=29) => U1 (n=3), U3 (n=9), U4 (n=6), U5 (n=2), U6 (n=2), U7 (n=3),...
  8. Updated data on Cypriot mt-DNA haplogroups (please correct maps)

    Dear Maciamo, I appreciate the substantial amount of time you dedicate on creating these great haplogroup distribution maps and I understand how hard it must be to go through all the evidence and get...
  9. BIG Y DNA Test (Next Gen Y Sequencing) is here and at a reduced price!

    FTDNA has announced their new 'BIG Y' DNA Test, which offers next generation sequencing scan (i.e. full scan) of your Y-chromosome! They accompany this launch with a reduced price, from $695 reduced...

    @PaschalisB & Dorianfinder

    Could you please specify which places of Greece you descent from? Your k36 results are somewhat different and both quite interesting. I can see Milos for Dorianfinder....

    Thanks for sharing your results. Here are my views:

    The Dodecad k12b data identify you as a typical Hungarian, with a bit less northern European and a bit more western European admixture than the...

    @BakodiP
    Please do not rely on the default Population Finder calculator of FTDNA. It is totally flawed for Eastern Europeans and probably for central Europeans as well. I know that for North-Western...

    @Eldrictch
    Mainland Greeks are not primarily J2a, they are primarily J2b. Only Cretans and Greek Cypriots are primarily J2a.
  14. This is an interesting hypothesis. What about the...

    This is an interesting hypothesis. What about the archaeogenetics of the Near East? Do we have any data from ancient DNA analyses from samples during that transition era in the Near East? I think...

    Once again great job Maciamo! I will repeat a comment I left on the main maps page. I was wondering which source you used for the Cypriot data. It does not seem to be Irwin et al (2008). The specific...

    Thanks to everyone for their comments..


    For the people who have some concerns regarding the validity of autosomal calculators, I would say that I do not worry at all about their validity as the...
  17. What can autosomal calculators tell us about ancient Greek admixture?

    There are plenty of autosomal calculators around (http://gedmatch.com/) and I have used practically all of them in order to identify any hint that would point me to the ancient Greek admixture. I...

    I would agree with the rest and say that autosomal tests are pretty accurate, as long as they are run with the admixture calculators found at GEDmatch. Don't forget that they are testing a huge...
  19. Hi Maciamo. Did you come across any data from...

    Hi Maciamo. Did you come across any data from Crete? I wonder if Cretans have the same southwest Asian admixture as mainland Greeks, especially northern Greeks. I have searched the Dodecad project's...

    I beleive this admixture is linked to the Dodecad 'Gedrosia' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gedrosia) admixture. Check the Gedrosia autosomal map here...

    Try the DIY Dodecad bat calculator (http://dodecad.blogspot.com/2011/09/bat-calculator-balkans-anatolia-turkic.html) with your raw data. It is best suited for Greeks, Turks, Armenians, Cypriots, etc....

    Great map! Thanks! Before I saw this map, I had identified the Red Sea component with the Arab expansion, but it does not seem to be the case..

    Oracle gives the closest (genetically) populations to you. This is in terms of admixture proportions and does not necessarily imply ancestral roots from that population. I can use the Cypriots and...

    Just to answer back on my self.. After reading the paper from Elhaik (2012) (doi:10.1093/gbe/evs119), where Cypriots turn out to be the non-Caucasus nation with the highest Caucasian admixture (31%),...
