K = 11 admixture analysis of ancient Near Eastern genomes

Below is a plot for a K = 11 admixture analysis that includes 45 ancient Near Eastern genomes. The table below gives some information for these samples.

This analysis produced three Caucasoid components. The plot shows that the early Neolithic farmers of Asia Minor were mostly genetically similar to the early farmers of the Levant, but that they had a significant amount of admixture from European hunter-gatherers. This was indicated earlier by the presence of Y haplogroups I2c and C1a2 in some of them.

    Reblogged this on Norah4you's Weblog and commented:
    Thanks to Genetiker who let me reblogg this as well as other of his bloggs. Please note that during Copper Age as well as later the notes made above his results for Armenia and Levanten is very very interesting for that partly confirms the later earliest written documentation….
