Norwegian Y chromosomal profile   posted by Razib @ 4/24/2006 10:16:00 PM

I've developed a mild interest in East-West phylogeography in Europe in regards to human populations. In the process I stumbled onto this paper, Geographical heterogeneity of Y-chromosomal lineages in Norway. I've put the full PDF in the forum, here. Standard caveat, take this with a grain of salt!!! But, I've put some maps below that readers might find of interest.

Fig. 6. Multidimensional scaling analysis of pairwise Y-SNP based FST between 23 European countries. Data were gathered only from the geographical coordinates indicated. Map coloration is the result of algorithmic interpolation and must be interpreted appropriate skepticism.
