    Genetic study The Genetic Origin of the Indo-Europeans " Abstract The Yamnaya archaeological complex appeared around 3300BCE across the steppes north of the Black and Caspian Seas, and by 3000BCE reached its maximal extent from Hungary in the west to Kazakhstan in the east. To localize the...

    Question Do haplogroup mutations usually just occur in only one, or a whole population of sperm cells inside the father's testes?

    I have been wondering about this for so long. Do those haplogroup mutations usually only occur in ONE of the father's sperm cells? So you can have two brothers in the same family carrying two different Y haplogroups, even if they are biological brothers by blood, both paternally and maternally...

    Breakdown of R1b subclades by French region

    I have calculated the frequency of each of the main R1b clade in every region of France last year in order to update the R1b maps. I used Nevgen to determine the subclades of samples from FTDNA that were not confirmed by SNP testing. It seems that I forgot to post the table with the results, so...

    A Novice in Genetics and DNA Testing Has Some Questions

    So I tested my DNA with LivingDNA and got my results. Now I want to know what I can do with those results. I'm very interested in exploring my ancestry and history of my lineages. I will ask some questions and hopefully someone out there is able to answer them. Keep in mind that I am a complete...

    Pre-Historic Population Size

    After thinking about the genetic pre history of Europe, a question came to mind and I'm curious if anyone here knows. Is there any estimates on the population size of certain key periods in Europe's pre-history from archaeologists or geneticists. In particular I'm wondering how many farmers left...

    Genomic and isotopic studies shed light into the mobility of medieval individuals CE

    Courtesy of Waldermar, Polish-Pomeranian member over at Anthrogenica. I found the similarity maps reminiscent of a Lazaridis paper. Also quite interesting, confirming some suspicions I have held. On whether all the samples are Slavic he replied: "In Radom, Grodowice and Detkovice, most...

    Database for ancient DNA comparison ab. 200'000 SNPs

    Hi there, I succeeded in sequencing ancient autosomal DNA from a far relative, with a result of about 200'000 SNPs. But neither GEDMatch or other database accept this upload because they need almost 500k SNPs... Does someone know if there are worldwide databases to make random comparisons...

    K36 K36 charts and maps of Etruscan samples

    The study on ancient Etruscan DNA by Posth et al. 2021 showed that three Etruscan individuals were genetically closer to modern Northwest Europeans. Intrigued I checked their percentage of similarities with modern European populations using Eurogenes K36 and the map tool made by Jerome Hamon...

    Ragnar Lothbrok's dynasty may well have belonged to haplogroup R1a-Z284

    I have checked Ragnar Lothbrok's genealogy to find if he had male line descendants to this day. It would not be surprising considering that he had eight sons and they became powerful rulers of their own. The main issue is that the genealogy is disputed. If enough Y-DNA lines survived, it would...

    Looking for Autosomal Analysis Services: ideal diets, health risks etc.

    Introducing two DNA testing companies: tellmeGen and Atlas BioMed

    There are two DNA testing companies founded over 5 years ago but that haven't made much noise in the pop gen community yet. Nevertheless they do look interesting. The first one is tellmeGen, a Spanish company based in Valencia offering both ancestry and health tests. Their website is available...

    Evolution of genetic admixtures by region

    The work on the K12b admixture by historical culture gave me the idea to show the evolution of genetic admixtures over time by region. I have started with the Near East and East Mediterranean.

    K12b Genome-wide genetic analysis of ancient Britons through the ages

    After Gaul, Italy, Iberia and Germanic tribes, here are the Dodecad K12b ancient British people from the Neolithic to the Late Bronze Age. I have calculated the average values (modal) for each period. I then compared these modals to modern populations using Vahaduo.
