Analyses of the Gökhem 2 genome

Below are the results of analyses of the Gökhem 2 genome. Gökhem 2 was a Neolithic farmer of the Funnelbeaker culture. Her remains were found in a megalithic burial structure in Gökhem parish, in Västergötland province, in southwest Sweden. The remains were dated to 5,050 to 4,750 years ago.

Gökhem 2 belonged to mitochondrial haplogroup H1c.

The K12b results show that although Gökhem 2 had 9.33% of the Caucasus component, she didn’t have any of the Gedrosia component, which means that she didn’t have any admixture from P, Q, R*, R1*, or R1b people.

The dv3 results show that Gökhem 2 was far more closely related to Western Europeans than to Eastern Europeans.

  1. Again, similar as in Ötzi’s case, the K12b Caucasus admixture isn’t combined with more general West Asian admixture, since the West Asian component in K7b, Globe10, Globe13 and MDLP World-22 is 0%. The explanation being that the Caucasus admixture in these cases belongs to the genetically Southern stratum in the present-day Caucasus, not the West Asian one. Gok4 had only slight Caucasus admixture and Ötzi much more, so it’s interesting to see that Gok2 was a bit more Ötzi-like.

  2. Correction£: Ah no, I’ve just seen, according to your analysis Gok4 has more Caucasus admixture than Gok2.
