The Onge versus other Indian & SE Asian ASI proxies

The Onge versus other Indian & SE Asian ASI proxies

The Onge are an endangered relic population with only about 100 surviving members, who inhabit the Andaman Islands in the Indian Ocean. They are classified as Negritos, and are related to  Negritos from neighboring NE India, Burma, Cambodia, and Indonesia. The unifying physical characteristics of Negritos are short stature, curly hair, and dark pigmentation. Although short stature and dark pigmentation can be prevalent among some […]

A detailed look at East & North Eurasian Gene Flow to South & West Asians

A detailed look at East & North Eurasian Gene Flow to South & West Asians

Here I perform a detailed analysis of East and North Eurasian gene flow to South, South-Central, and West Asians by doing a one-to-one comparison of genomes sampled at about 404,000 Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) positions, using the program BEAGLE. To do this I utilize many genomes from northern and eastern Asia publicly available from the Estonian Biocentre. The results from my analysis are very surprising […]
