Their Y-DNA seems to be mainly M81, while their mtDNA seems to be mainly Eurasian. Correct me if I'm wrong. M81 doesn't seem to exist in the Horn, but the subclade seems to be relatively young, and M78 is still pretty common among North Africans.
But yeah, them receiving a higher African score on 23andme than Horners would suggest that there has been some West African admix.
Merged ethioboy's thread with Polako's, no need to have two different threads about this very same topic.
Polako, count me in.
“The idea that any kind of free society can be constructed in which people will never be offended or insulted is absurd. So too is the notion that people should have the right to call on the law to defend them against being offended or insulted. A fundamental decision needs to be made: do we want to live in a free society or not?”
— Salman Rushdie
“Free speech is meant to protect unpopular speech. Popular speech, by definition, needs no protection.”

In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries
I ran into some conversion problems between the HapMap and HGDP data, hence the hold up. But everything's under control now. The Maasai are on board, and they're a really interesting addition to my project, because their dataset hasn't been featured in any studies I've seen to date. All I can tell you now is that they're very different from other Sub-Saharan Africans.
Key: 1 = Orcadians from the Orkney Isles; 2 = North Russians from Vologda oblast; 3 = French; 4 = Basques from France; 5 = Italians from Bergamo and Tuscany; 6 = Sardinians; 7 = Adygei from the Caucasus; 8 = Druze from Israel; 9 = Palestinians; 10 = Bedouin from Israel; 11 = Mozabite Berbers from Algeria; 12 = Balochi from Pakistan; 13 = Burusho from Pakistan; 14 = Kalash from Pakistan; 15 = Brahui from Pakistan; 16 = Makrani from Pakistan; 17 = Pathan from Pakistan; 18 = Sindhi from Pakistan; 19 = Uyghurs from China; 20 = Maya from Mexico; 21 = Pima from Mexico; 22 = Piapoco and Curripaco from Colombia; 23 = Karitiana from Brazil; 24 = Surui from Brazil; 25 = Yakut from Siberia; 26 = Xibo from China; 27 = Hezhen from China; 28 = Dai from China; 29 = Daur from China; 30 = Lahu from China; 31 = Miaozu from China; 32 = Mongola from China; 33 = Naxi from China; 34 = Oroqen from China; 35 = She from China; 36 = Yizu from China; 37 = Tujia from China; 38 = Tu from China; 39 = Han from China; 40 = Japanese; 41 = Cambodians; 42 = Melanesians; 43 = Papuans; 44 = Yoruba; 45 = Bantu from Kenya; 46 = Bantu from South Africa; 47 = Mandenka from Senegal; 48 = Biaka Pygmy; 49 = Mbuti Pygmy; 50 = San from Namibia; 51 = Maasai from Kenya
My percentages, and what I understand them to correlate with (please correct me if I am wrong):
Northeast African- 1.4%
West Eurasian- 92.4%
East Asian- .5%
Central/South Asian- 3.4%
The Sub-Saharan and Central/South Asian are higher than expected. At least, relatively speaking. For example, I appear to have a greater Sub-Saharan component than most Druze, Palestinians, and some Israeli Bedouins.
How did you select your 750 markers? I mean, what sort of logic did you employ?
Thank you very much for putting this together. These sort of structure analyses are always quite fascinating.

It registers in me as well, ethioboy.
