COMPARITIVE ESTIMATIONS OF GENETIC ADMIXTURE AND RELATIVE MIGRATION

This weekend I found plenty of up to date articles on the web and here at my "Northern Illinois University" that totally prove them (whoever they me be) wrong.......

One rather interesting one by MEYER AND LINARES (1995) supports how the increase of loci used doesn't make any significant difference on results of population genetics.....IN FACT, IT IS VERY LIKELY A BIAS AGAINST HETEROGENEOUS POPULATIONS AND TOWARDS HOMOGENEOUS ONES. Don't ask for a mathematical explanation of this, please. THE USE OF 42 populations at 120 allelles with a 24% GAP, using Neighbor-joining is a better study; 98.6% confidence as shown; than using a measly 25 populations(of course, avoiding the extreme african populations too,and many other european groups don't leave room for proper reference). But CAVALL-SFORZA is a genius and examined heterogenius populations by region and plotted averages. That's where you get the gene map on this site. If people want a study using 25 populations...why do it?? It's obvious then that some studies are biased and politically based. Disgusting to the point of disbelief. Im glad LINARES and MEYER figured it out and were honest. You gotta love science!!

Instead of pondering over which studies are more accurate, I decided to compile as many as I could find and give relative summaries on various populations. The following is the average stats on Caucasians from around the world.

IRANIANS:

2 studies (P. Keiffer, D. Schelden, Inst. Mid East studies)

**"North eastern**" Aryan Iranian (10% of the nation) : a relative, unbelievable,102.5% caucasian in origin. This sub-pop is usually never considered seperate in studies from the general eastern 'aryan' iranians.

3 studies (cavally sforza, Keiffer, Meyer)
ARYAN IRANIAN "eastern iranian" (remaining 55% of aryan stock): a relative 97.6% caucasian

34% remaining: a relative 88.8% caucasian in origin ( This Isn'T very good at all as most may think just by numbers as you will see)

7 studies (Cavalli, D. meyer, Willford, Hensen, Godfrey, Matsari, Nei)
Iranian average: 95.7% caucasian in origin

**The average is still well within a fairly safe range ==== <>



CENTRAL EUROPE:

5 studies w/ gene distances (various compilation)

ITALIAN: A RELATIVE 97.9% caucasian
GERMANIC: 98.1% caucasian (NO SURPRISE)
ENGLISH: 95.0% relative caucasian there only weakness is a couple of particular african tribes, obviously in accordance w/ admitted history)
DANISH: a relative 96.4% caucasian in origin. (DAMN)
FINLAND: a relative 96.8% caucasian in origin

**CENTRAL EUROPE IS A LARGE, HIGHLY CAUCASIAN, REGION.


EASTERN EUROPE:

5 studies "total" ("GENETICS" , Cavalli-sforza, Domillo, Gertoff, Nei)

Russian: 85% caucasian (perhaps more or less depending on region)
West russian: 88% caucasian
Azerbijan: 87.4% CAUCASIAN
CHUCKCHI: 56.1% caucasian (OOPS)
TAJIKASTAN 86% caucasian


AND HERE ARE SOME OTHER REFRENCE POINTS"

MIDDLE EAST/WASIA/ASIAN:
All by Institute of mid east studies. and/or cavalli sforza or nei.
or T. Caldwell or Notsori or D. Meyer.

7 studies used
Asian Indians (hindus): 72% caucasian in origin

2 studies
North "aryan" Indian (sub pop): 88% caucasian in origin.

5 studies
Armenian: A relative 93.7% caucasian in origin
IRAQI: 87.3% caucasian in origin
SAUDI ARABIAN: A relative 84.1%caucasian in origin.
EGYPT: a relative 81% caucasian in origin (**however, I know that north egypt is more caucasian sorry for no stats!)

THESE POPULATIONS AS YOU CAN SEE HAVE, AT LEAST SOME CLEAR ADMIXTURE (BESIDES ARMENIANS. IRAQI ISN"T DOING "TOO" BAD EITHER??)


* note: In all I used 15 studies with large numbers of (Fst, Nei or cavalli-sforza modified for genetic distances)the extreme populations.(minimum 35 pops in Nei a study) that were done anywhere from 1988 to 2001 using NEIGHBOR JOINING (only one study used UPGMA - but I converted it to NJ; CAVALLI-SFORZA).

Oslonor: It is clear from this that Caucasian is another fraud terminology. According to this study Azeris are more Caucasians than Russians. Azeris are Turks. They are not even caucasians. So Caucasian does not mean anything.

Thracian , iranian and germanic tribes have a lots of things in common.If you know history you know i'm right ;)
Heil Pagan Europe !

Azeris/Azerbaijanis ARE caucasian. They were Trukified later on, but originally caucasian.
The white-majority of Azerbaijanis look very similar to Nordic
people(s), that is if you dont count the brown-skinned Persian and Kurdish influenced Azeris.
