South Asian Genotype Project, update


I’ve been working on the South Asian Genotype Project. Again, if you are interested: send me a 23andMe, Ancestry, or Family Tree DNA raw genotype file to contactgnxp -at- gmail.com.

In the subject please put:

  1. “South Asian Genotype Project”
  2. The state/province your family is from
  3. Ethnolinguistic group
  4. If applicable, caste

I changed the reference populations because the earlier ones were too complicated. You can see the population averages from public data sets for some groups.  The results for project members are here. I re-ran everyone who has sent data in so far. I’ll leave commentary for later.

At this point, I think the easiest way to update project members is to create a mailing list. If you are have submitted genotypes, please join:

South Asian Genotype Project update

Just a quick update. I know I haven’t been responsive, but I’ve been traveling and spending time with the family and working a lot for the past few weeks. I’m going to make some revisions to my pipeline as well. I will get back to generating results soon (as in a week or so). So please keep sending data to contactgnxp@gmail.com.
