    Genotype data for our study on the The Genomic Formation of South and Central Asia are now available here: https://reich.hms.harvard.edu/datasets ” – Vagheesh Narasimhan on twitter. Can you look at this?

    Does anyone knows if Genetiker is OK? ill? needing help?

    I tried to sent a message to Genetiker through the form “Help Wanted”, but he didn’t answer. If he is in need of money, we could organize a collection for him.

    The data indicate that the Paleoindians from the YP are all in the mesocephalic index range (75–80), contrasting with the individuals from Central Mexico and North America with dates older than 9 ky BP which are in general dolicocephalic (68–75).
