Where have you got this information from? From what i know the steppe level in the north and even center are actually higher than the IA latins and italics, while the WHG makes the real difference.
It is an interesting question, and the reason is probably imperial age admixture followed by...
Similar proportion of component, high farmer (around 60%) and moderate steppe (30-35%) with low WHG. There may be some genuine balkan influence in northern italy but as pointed out we can only make conjectures until we got iron and bronze age samples from N. italy.
I agree that northern italy has great genetic differences, already present in the past, given the geographic conformation and its crossroad position. I think that we can assime that the study samples has been taken from the plain part, around big cities like Torino, Milano...
Thank you for sharing this! Do you know when they will be published?I'm so happy that we finally got a study about northern Italy.
The abstract states" Most of the newly studied individuals derive three-quarters of their genetic profile from the local population and one-quarter from...
Merry christmas to everyone! Last year i took the myheritage as my first test, this year i bought a 23andme kit. The results came today!
They are pretty standard for a north italian.
My ydna turned out to be a r1b-u152, pretty similar as the predicted, and i discovered also my mtdna H1.
This is an heatmap i made using g25 distances and this site: https://www.mapchart.net/europe-detailed.html
It took me a lot of time to manually paint all the regions, and i had to do quite a lot of geography research cause sometimes the regions from the samples do not...
Here are the k12b results of the Mal'ta Buret sample which is found on gedmatch with kit number F999914.
I am curious what are your closest results to ancient samples on calculators like Vahaduo.
Especially for people from northern and central italy.
