    Default My Xcode Life 2.0 results + Genomebox, why does my Ethiopian get seen as MENA components?

    Xcode Life 2.0 Non-ML results:

    mygenomebox results:

    Spoiler: 




    i have a question, since on Xcode Life 2.0 it said that it uses Ethiopian as samples for Middle Eastern/north african, but in the ML calculator i score 99% european and 1% west asian (super innaccurate) so basically "Null results"

    how come that i score 17% west asian/middle eastern though? and why do they cluster ethiopian with middle eastern instead of SSA?

    mygenomebox did the opposite, they consider ethiopian african, not part of "Asia" and they are africans.


    if im not mistaken mygenomebox should give me 41.72% african, with east asian + asia combined, but from what ive noticed is that Arab/Levantine/North african ancestry gets thrown into South european components.


    that would also make sense as to why i score more south euro than west or north. I also saw a half bedouin and half east european score 25% south european on that test, and ONLY 3.90% Asia! thats insane.

    i scored 2.23% as you can see, and i have 3-4% moroccan ancestry, and 10-17% ethiopian apparently. Doug McDonald gave me a estimate of 11% Oromo Ethiopian.


    what do you guys think? are these results legitimate in my case? (im anywhere inbetween 44-55% European)

    let me know yall. Also, are west african/ethiopian mixes considered mulatto? and how rare are they?

    It seems like they're 10 years behind, lol. 23andMe also used to be like this back in the 2000s, when they had inadequate reference populations for Horners.

This is also true for all Baltic countries

    Well yeah, it does seem like the most logical explanation xD i dont see how you can see horners as Middle eastern and cluster them with MENA's lmao.

    horners are ethnically still african, and only anywhere inbetween 20%-55% Arab or west eurasian.
