New map of Red Sea (Horn of Africa) admixture

I did not already studied deeply this new question for me but as Tabaccus Maximus I thought in Y-DNA T because it don't suit so well the total y-E1b distribution -
for me this grouping "red sea" is not too homogenous (mixture 'east-african'-'southwest asian'

You should be only proud of the italian amazing variety of genes....

To good its made by a Nordicist who hates southeuropeans and there is not much truth in the maps.
The italians are people are more homogen than for example Germany.
 
I have added a new shade for 0.5% to 1% so as to clearly see who (almost) completely lacks the Red Sea admixture. It is the case of Northwest Europeans, but also the Basques (0%) and the Sardinians (0.2%). That's very interesting considering that the latter two are population isolates who share a high level of I2a1a (M26).

You are 100% correct, Politics and Political boundaries have little meaning; thats why the Spaniards and the Portuguese cluster with each other and are closer (the closest) to each other (despite being 2 diff. nations) than the N Italians are to the S Italians (despite being 1 nation);
This could be a reason:

Coop & Ralph et al 2013
http://www.plosbiology.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pbio.1001555
Spain and Portugal showing very few common ancestors with other populations over the last 2,500 years. However, the rate of IBD sharing within the peninsula is much higher than within Italy—during the last 1,500 years the Iberian peninsula shares fewer than two genetic common ancestors with other populations, compared to roughly 30 per pair within the peninsula; Italians share on average only about eight with each other during this period.

Whether Veeramah 2011, DiGaetano 2012 or Nelis 2009 all show the same picture of clear genetic diversity within the Italian people (North/Central/South) towards each-other;
Reason being that they never greatly inter-mixed with each-other; and why should they have they dont even speak the same languages (mother-tongues) within Romanic family;

Or just look at the Red Sea admix. map and the results:
Sicily 5.3%/S Italy Sicily 6.1%/C Italy 3.5%/Tuscany 2.3%/N Italy 1.6%/N Italy 0.8%/Sardinia 0.2%

How the heck is Slovakia all the way down below Italy away from its neighbors??
 
Lol true....only a rare few tribes as the Boii migrated to northern Italy towards central Emilia-Romagna from the Germany/Czech region but overall there should be very little cluster between Italians and Slovaks; right off the bat 50% of men from both cultures are R1, the Italians being Celtic B and the Slovaks having Slavic A; in fact there is no excuse at all for this dramatic scenic iris misinterpretation lol. Slovaks defdinetly cluster with Russians Ukrainians Belorussians poles Czechs Slovenes more than they ever could with Italians.

yea that's what I would think, the only thing I could think of that possibly would connect Slovakia to Italy could maybe be some kind of Vallachian connection, though supposedly the original vlachs were not related to Italians but who knows. Though I do know quite a few Slovaks who look exactly like Italians. My father looks like he could be al pacinos cousin lol :)
 
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..
 
I hope this is not true. I makes me very sad to be italian.


Just because you are Italian with haplogroup E ancestry doesn't make you African American, heck you might have distant ancestors who were in the cutting edge of farming thanks to the Neolithic. :)

I don't know why this would make you said? Is it because you think it makes Italians less European? because according to Maciamos maps Haplogroup E and the Red Sea component are virtually everywhere in Europe except for the North west. If Italians aren't European I don't know who is then
 
Otzi's Autosomal DNA

Pertaining to Otzi's autosomal DNA and to the concerns of this thread /////

I found these results posted on an old thread on Apricity, from 2013, and wonder if this information is correct. Perhaps more sophisticated calculators would yield different numbers today?

Gedrosia 0
Siberian 0
Northwest_African 5.7
South_Asian 1.5
Atlantic_Med 57.7
Caucasus 22.3
North_European 0
Southeast_Asian
East_African 2.4
East_Asian 0.7
Southwest_Asian 7.6
West_African 0

https://www.theapricity.com/forum/showthread.php?94485-%D6tzi-the-Iceman-s-Autosomal-Dna

In particular, the South Asian, East Asian & Southeast Asian findings seem doubtful.

However, the East African finding is perhaps more plausible in light of the fact that many of today's Mediterranean populations appear to have about 2 to 5% East African or Red Sea admixture. Perhaps this reflects very ancient structuring, perhaps even pre-dating the Neolithic? Could it be that East Africans migrated north and mixed with WHG during the Mesolithic era?

In essence, I am asking the same question that Maciamo posed in 2013 at the very beginning of this thread . . . .

I have none (0%) and i am South Italian (Apulia) it's really a shame, because from what i understand it could be linked to the ancient Egyptians, and I would have liked a bit of Egyptian DNA
 
How so;
Did you really think Italy (founded 1861) was a genetic unity?
Italians [North/Central/South] are genetically diverse to each other in fact not even related;
this map about the Red Sea admix. once again illustrates it;
Ever thought about chopping your Italy tattoo into three parts?
it can be true up to a certain point, I plot in the middle, on closer inspection I am connected to both places, and I am 100% southern Italian (north of Puglia) on closer inspection Italy in the most historical sense of the term is the central, central south and central northern Italy, because it follows a perfect Greek-Italic cline, I would say that the cline goes from Emilia Romagna to the north of Puglia/north of Campania, in fact they are the areas where there is more direct descent from the ancient Italics, northern Italy is too more Celtic and southern Italy is too more Greek

sounds like you are referring to the well known linguistic divide of Italy................where the linguistic syntax is split

Emilia-Romagna, Liguria, Toscana, imo, are the "heartland", and not because my ancestry is from there, but because indeed in the Veneto and Lombardia and even in parts of Piemonte there's a bit of Langobard, although it's still not very much, and the south is very Greek. I think once you get to Campania, however, the heavy Greek influence sets in, as can be seen in the analyses which Jovialis has done. Lazio virtually doesn't exist any more as a real "Central Italian" entity, so I don't count it, and the Abruzzi is already half southern.

This is my plot on G25, and i'm from the Gargano, a plot closer to Tuscany than to Apulia and closer to Umbria than Lazio, in my opinion, central Italy proper (excluding Abruzzo and Molise which are central-southern) is quite homogeneous

Hi Kenshiro: If possible, can you post your Dodecad 12B plots using all available samples from all political regions in Italy. Just curios to see the Dodecad 12B as I don't have G25 coordinates (others here I think also do not have G25 coordinates).

Cheers, PT

Yes absolutely, Screenshot_2022-03-22-21-14-18-775_com.android.chrome.jpg
 
Kenshiro: Thanks, your results look good, My experience here (and I think others will agree, Angela, Jovialis, Salento) is that Dodecad 12B models Italian populations better than most other models. With Dodecade K12, you plot closer to Apulia which is where you are from.
