In order to interpret your results, first search for your DOD number, and see which columns you have non-zero probabilities in. For the vast majority of individuals you will be uniquely assigned (100%) in one of the 63 clusters. Then, you can visit the ancestry thread to see who else is assigned to the same cluster as yourself, and also look in the reference populations to see how they are represented in the different clusters.
The following IDs were outliers:
DOD004 DOD006 DOD010 DOD020 DOD024 DOD029 DOD030 DOD032 DOD036 DOD047 DOD050 DOD051 DOD053 DOD060 DOD063 DOD072 DOD075 DOD107 DOD126 DOD128 DOD132 DOD133 DOD156 DOD157 DOD168 DOD169 DOD175 DOD216 DOD223 DOD235 DOD239 DOD240 DOD245 DOD252 DOD294 DOD303 DOD316 DOD326 DOD339 DOD348 DOD359 DOD363 DOD380 DOD382 DOD384 DOD385 DOD387 DOD388 DOD389 DOD425 DOD430 DOD435
As previously explained, outliers may either be mixed individuals or individuals from particular populations not well represented in the Project. In both cases they appear to be more "distant" from other individuals and from their respective clusters.
A few observations:
- The single largest cluster is #3 which is mostly "British Isles"
- Cluster #26 encompasses most Greek/South Italian/Sicilian individuals; not how this is not represented in the reference populations, which lack such individuals
- Cluster #23, also absent in the reference populations encompasses mainly Finns and some Russians
- Cluster #25 is also quite large, consisting of 42 Project members and only 2 reference White Utahns. This consists largely of North/Central Europeans from continental Europe.
- Cluster #4 includes mainly Iberians
- Cluster #11 mainly Ashkenazi Jews
- Cluster #15 mainly Turks
- Cluster #16 mainly people from the Balkans
- Cluster #27 mainly North-Central Italians not in #26 (the Greco-Italian cluster)
I plan to explore fine-scale structure of Dodecad Project members further, especially of those who belong to large, undifferentiated clusters that may harbor latent informative structure.
