I have included the new Turkish data from Hodoğlugil & Mahley (2012) in this analysis. Additionally, there are now 5 participants in the Serb_D and Turkish_Cypriot_D sub-populations, as well as a Bosnian Muslim. There are now project participants from many Balkan countries, although Albania, the fYROM, and Croatia remain as "black holes" in the map.Remember that the tree groups similar populations together, and for each row in the matrix, the red end of the spectrum indicates lots of IBD sharing, and the blue end low IBD sharing. Additionally, I have now calculated the median IBD sharing, which is more resistant in the presence of potential relatives in the data.
Still, I am hopeful that there will be more project participants from currently under-represented populations. I have already started processing the same dataset with ChromoPainter (which takes much longer), and hopefully that analysis will be posted at the end of this week or the beginning of the next one.
First, the heatmap of inter-population IBD:
The results appear fairly reasonable, with the Balkan, Anatolian, and Italian populations of the title forming separate branches, and the mainland Greek sample joining with Central/South Italians and Sicilians.
The Clusters Galore can be seen below; 28 clusters were inferred with 21 dimensions:
Results for Project participants can be found in the spreadsheet, and include the probabilities that each ID is assigned to each of the 28 clusters, as well as the Z-scores comparing each individual against all populations with 5+ individuals. The Z-score should be read as follows: for each row, high values indicate a high degree of IBD sharing, while low values indicate a low degree of IBD sharing.
Of course, I encourage Project participants to leave a message in the Information about Project samples thread.
