[Dodecad Ancestry Project] Update : K=64 for Dodecad Project members

As a prelude, for those reading my weblogs, don't worry, I just don't have much time to upload them. Still I've got tons of samples waiting for being updated.

Just a piece of news then : Dienekes updated his Dodecad project with a K=64 analysis. This time I was included : I'm DOD133.

Clusters Galore results, K=64 for Dodecad Project members (up to DOD307)

Unfortunately enough, Dienekes' privacy policy doesn't allow an easy identification of project members . Browse this topic for more info on participants. The results show that :

- Iberians cluster together at K=22 along with 3 North Italians and 5 Frenchmen. The 15 Dodecad project members can more or less all be identified.
- The French Basques define their own cluster at K=38.
- Rather interestingly, I define my own cluster at K=22 : to be more precise I'm joined by another Frenchman from the Lyons sample who must be that dot with Basque tendencies used by most companies and amateur geneticists (Dienekes, Polako, 23andme, ...). One can fairly deduce that this man from Lyons is either Gascon or a recent mix of Basque ancestry and a more mainstream French one (which might give similar results). Which is another proof that this Lyons sample should not be used without further data about who sampled individuals are.

I've chosen to let people comment freely on my posts. Nevertheless, you'll lose your time taunting me and calling me a fascist (which I'm really not) : I pray you to read my introduction which will reassure that my intentions genuinely aim at achieving amateurish knowledge. I understand that you may not share my passion for the history of the peopling of the World, just don't let me know as clear conscience gained by bashing a humble documentary work is useless.
