GEDMatch Greek from Elis (Western Peloponnese) Gedmatch results

Based on my experience Dodecad is better at decerning different types of farmer DNA. That's why it is a good calculator for Southern Europeans. But it seems to not work so well for determining WHG from Steppe. Euroogenes calcs seem to be the opposite.

Because of Dodecad K12b's ability to decern farmer DNA better, I was able to create the models for southern Europeans which led to me noticing that Minoans are indeed a good proxy.

Eurogenes seems to better for eastern Europeans, because their farmer ancestry is much smaller, and less relevant for accurately modeling them. But also because it is better at decerning components that do matter for modeling them.
 
I said to Davidski on anthrogenica that Dodecad was better for Southern Europeans, and he rebuked my claim. Asserting that G25 was better on both accounts. However, it is my honest observation, I'm not trying to be a t-roll. Recently, I tried to recreate my Minoan calcu set on G25 and the farmers were all jumbled on the 3D PCA. Though WHG, steppe, and others looked finely projected.
 
Forgot to add, just for fun, her actual ethnicity estimate from Myheritage... I know their estimates leave a lot to be desired but her significant Balkan shift at least seems logical according to her ancestry. For this reason, her placement on the "Italian" cline is more of a coincidence -I think- than something like the connection presented on the upcoming Adriatic seas paper.

Genetic groups:
High confidence: Greece
Medium: Romania, Italy/France/Germany, Albanians in N. Macedonia and in Albania, Serbia/Croatia/Bosnia
Low: Crete

The directions they are pulled in depends on the components, and can radically change by introducing or taking away samples projected.

I used all the available averages of Greeks+Cypriots, Italians, Albanians, N. Macedonians, Bulgarians, Romanians+Aromanians and Turks.
I understand what you are saying but it produced seemingly clear/well defined placements and pulls. If you have a more suitable list please share it.
 
Try using all west Eurasians.
Also if it is the "updated' list, I see some were user submitted from the Apricity, from single individuals...

Also, my heritage is confounded because it is looking at heritage with modern mixed populations. Ashkenazi for example are a good chunk Greek.

Emilia is at a distance of 11 and Liguria 12, so that seems right.

Personally, I wouldn't take My Heritage very seriously, especially for the two-way mix, which I never look at, period, in any calculator. It's as bad as Eurogenes' "Jewish" calculator; everybody in Southern Europe and beyond comes out as part Jewish. Part of the reason is that you can't use Ashkenazim as reference samples, when they're approximately half-European or more.
 
Myheritage kit.
What do you think about her results? Supposedly her village (right on the borders with Arcadia) is an old mix of Arcadian migrants from the vicinity of modern day municipality of Gortynia and local people from Elis.

Are those Deep Maniot samples self-made coordinates created from original partial Maniot coordinates? The results seem fine but also many of those unique outliers are almost always self made (i.e extracted). I would not recommend them, sorry.

So Albanians are closer to Northen Italians where as Greeks closer to Southern Italians?
 
Albanians usually plot quite far east of Tuscans (Slavic, not West European admixture), but parallel, if that makes sense.

I've never seen an Albanian plot with Northern Italians. The only people from the Balkans whom I've seen plot with Northern Italians are Bulgarians occasionally, or Romanians.

We've known this for decades, since the days of Cavalli-Sforza.

As for Southern Italians/Sicilians, they're closest to people from the Peloponnese and some of the islands.
 
So Albanians are closer to Northen Italians where as Greeks closer to Southern Italians?

Albanian_Catholic_Mirdite looks like an outlier. Possible miscalculation in the average or an outlier not representative of all Albanians. Albanians do not plot with Italians, Albanians are part of the Balkan cluster, as is obvious.

He is a single individual, "Illyrius" from the forum ending in ....-city to be exact.
While he is an outlier he has a close match on gedmatch with similar results (also Albanian).
Interestingly he is R-U152 but I don't think it's resolved further downstream.

Can you post also Eurogenes K36 ???
 
Are those Deep Maniot samples self-made coordinates created from original partial Maniot coordinates? The results seem fine but also many of those unique outliers are almost always self made (i.e extracted). I would not recommend them, sorry.

It's an average of 4 full Maniots, genotyped with high coverage raw data. I'm not sure what you mean by self made, or why you assume that. A significant proportion of the Greek averages come from what I have posted online, and I have pretty good standards for what is an acceptable average. Every average I post must have more than 1 individual, as I strongly disagree with basing averages on individuals such as that 'Albanian_Catholic_Mirdite' average. In most cases, the individuals must have their family trees posted on MyHeritage or AncestryDNA, before they are added to an average. Also, individuals must have above 165,000 SNP overlap with Eurogenes K13, as from my experience, coordinates which come from low SNP overlap raw data such as the one in the OP are much more prone to being outliers. The only time I would ever forego the last case is if the area is extremely unique and only has the low SNP overlap kits available from that area.
 
Can you post also Eurogenes K36 ???
Sure! Please post any possibly interesting result that you might find if you use it with the available datasheets.

It's an average of 4 full Maniots, genotyped with high coverage raw data. I'm not sure what you mean by self made, or why you assume that. A significant proportion of the Greek averages come from what I have posted online, and I have pretty good standards for what is an acceptable average. Every average I post must have more than 1 individual, as I strongly disagree with basing averages on individuals such as that 'Albanian_Catholic_Mirdite' average. In most cases, the individuals must have their family trees posted on MyHeritage or AncestryDNA, before they are added to an average. Also, individuals must have above 165,000 SNP overlap with Eurogenes K13, as from my experience, coordinates which come from low SNP overlap raw data such as the one in the OP are much more prone to being outliers. The only time I would ever forego the last case is if the area is extremely unique and only has the low SNP overlap kits available from that area.

In my friend's case, her grandson, who is of very mixed (greek) background his Myheritage kit produced VERY similar results with his WGS derived kit which had basically 100% overlap. I understand that's not always the case though.
He may test her with Ancestry too in the future, it was going to be the first choice but budgetary restrictions (and a very good offer :D) turned his attention to Myheritage.
 
What a pity since it's such an inaccurate and misleading calculator.
