Please refer to the previous analysis on the Balkans/West Asia for more information about the interpretation of this type of analysis.
I am very pleased with the way this analysis of Afroasiatic groups has turned out, revealing an exceptional degree of resolution. I invite individuals from the Near East and Africa who are eligible, to submit their data, so that they can be included in future runs of this kind.
45 clusters were inferred with 29 dimensions.
I can't comment on all 45 clusters, so I'll just limit myself to the ones that are significantly represented among Project participants: 1. Ashkenazi, 4. Assyrian/Mandaean, 6. Somali, 7. Moroccan, 8. Algerian/Tunisian, 9. Sephardic, 10. Morocco Jews, 11. Iran/Iraq Jews, 12. Non-Jewish Ethiopians, 13. Saudi, 14. Arab #1, 15. Arab #2, 16. Egyptian
The results can be found in the spreadsheet.
I have also added the full IBD sharing matrix which lists how many Morgans of sequence are estimated to be IBD with probability greater than 10^-6 between all pairs of individuals.
You can google any non-Project sample IDs to get some more information about their origin. For example, GSM536710 is an Iraqi Jew who shares about half his genome with GSM536714, also an Iraqi Jew. These two samples are almost certainly first-degree relatives. Or, GSM537032, a Samaritan shares 740-1,480cM with the other 2 Samaritans, an exceptional amount in this small and probably highly inbred population.
You can manipulate this matrix in R. After you download it and unzip it, you can load it into R as follows:
Then, you can, for example, sort the IBD sharing for a particular individual, as follows:
