The genomic origins of the Bronze Age Tarim Basin mummies

No one asked me, but I'll chime in anyway. :)

This is labelled the "Sleeping Beauty of Loulan". These could absolutely be the remains of an East Asian or American Indian woman to my eyes. The only difference is that the former don't have her more prominent nose.

Since the Algonquins carry mtDna X2 I thought it would be interesting to look at them.

This Tarim mummy looks less East Asian to me, but it's still there.
