Analyses of the Afontova Gora genome

Below are the results of globe4, globe13, and MDLP World-22 analyses of the Afontova Gora genome.

Like the Mal’ta boy, the modal component for the Afontova Gora man in the World-22 analysis is the Aryan Nordic component, although the Afontova Gora man did have more of the Cro-Magnon Nordic component than the Mal’ta boy.

The Afontova Gora man had more of the Nordic components and less of the Veddoid component than the Mal’ta boy. This makes sense, because the Afontova Gora man was 7,000 years further up the path of Nordic evolution than the Mal’ta boy.

The Afontova Gora man had less archaic admixture (appearing as Negroid admixture) than the Mal’ta boy.

In my post on the Mal’ta genome I said that the analysis results indicated that the Mal’ta boy had some proto-Mongoloid admixture. But I later realized that was not correct. The only Mongoloid components that the Mal’ta boy had any amount of were those associated with populations having high frequencies of Aryan or proto-Aryan Y haplogroups. The Mal’ta boy had some of the Eskimid component in the globe13 and World-22 analyses. The two dominant haplogroups in Eskimos are the proto-Aryan Q haplogroup and the Aryan R1 haplogroup. In the World-22 analysis the Mal’ta boy had a significant amount of the Uralid component. The people with the largest amount of the Uralid component are the Kets, and the Kets have the highest frequency of Q in Asia (93.7%). The people with the third-largest amount of the Uralid component are the Selkups, and the Selkups have the second-highest frequency of Q in Asia (66.4%, with most of the rest being R1). So the appearance of these components in the results for the Mal’ta boy is, like the appearance of the Indianid components, spurious.

The Afontova Gora man shows less of the Indianid and Mongoloid components than the Mal’ta boy because he is more divergent from the proto-Aryans who contributed to the ancestry of Indianids, Uralids, and Eskimids.
