High-resolution K = 4 analysis of the European admixture in Chinchorro DNA

Below is a plot for a high-resolution K = 4 admixture analysis that includes a Chinchorro mummy sample from Chile dated to 3972–3806 BC. This analysis uses over twice as many transversion SNPs as my earlier admixture analyses. Here are

qpAdm analysis confirms European admixture in Chinchorro DNA

To provide further confirmation of my discovery two years ago that Chinchorro DNA contains European admixture, I’ve performed a number of qpAdm analyses using the following populations: Target population: One of 23 ancient American samples, including the Chinchorro sample. Source

Principal component analysis confirms European admixture in Chinchorro DNA

In my White Gods post from four years ago I included numerous photographs of mummies from the Chinchorro culture of southern Peru and northern Chile, showing that they have brown and chestnut European hair, and not black Mongoloid Amerindian hair.

K = 14 admixture analysis of Scythians and Sarmatians

Below is a plot for a K = 14 admixture analysis that includes eight new Scythian and Sarmatian genomes. The table above the plot gives some information for these samples. The sample labeled Samara Scythian IA, which has appeared in

Phenotype SNPs for Scythians and Sarmatians

Below are derived allele counts and total numbers of reads for SNPs that have a large effect on phenotype for eight Scythian and Sarmatian genomes. Nonzero derived allele counts are in bold. Note that small derived allele counts may be
