K = 14 admixture analysis of the complete Tianyuan genome

Below is a plot for a K = 14 admixture analysis that includes the complete genome of Tianyuan 1, whose remains were found in Tianyuan Cave, in the Zhoukoudian cave system, near Beijing, China. The remains were dated to 42,000–39,000 BP. Tianyuan 1 belonged to the Mongoloid mitochondrial haplogroup B.

Here are the component percentages for Tianyuan 1:

      1.16%
      2.71%
      7.34%
      0.00%
      0.00%
      0.00%
      0.00%
      32.17%
      14.02%
      19.23%
      8.79%
      1.16%
      1.57%
      11.85%

These results are similar to the results for my earlier analyses of the Tianyuan sample going back to 2013, which were based on about one fiftieth of the data used for this analysis.

One difference, however, between the new results and the earlier results is that Tianyuan 1 now shows more of the Mongoloid components and less of the Caucasoid components.

Another difference is that Tianyuan 1 now shows some of the Negroid components, which is not actually due to Negroid admixture, but instead to the fact that Tianyuan 1 had archaic admixture in excess of what is found in modern non-Negroid and non-Australoid populations.

    Can you look at Tianyuan y dna calls, it is male and don’t have y dna in study mentioned?
