ASI (Ancestral South Indian)
Near east: middle east
WHG and WHG/ANE: indigenous European hunter-gatherers
EEF: mixed European/Near Eastern Neolithic farmers
ANE/WHG: Proto-Indo-European invaders from the Eastern European steppe
ENA/ANE: early Uralics from the Volga-Ural region
EEF/WHG/ANE: late Indo-Europeans (ie. Celts, Germanics and Slavs)
Early European Farmer (EEF): apparently this is a hybrid component, the result of mixture between “Basal Eurasians” and a WHG-like population possibly from the Balkans. It’s based on a 7500 year old Linearbandkeramik (LBK) sample from Stuttgart, Germany, but today peaks at just over 80% among Sardinians.

West European Hunter-Gatherer (WHG): this ancestral component is based on an 8,000 year old forager from the Loschbour rock shelter in Luxembourg, who belonged to Y-chromosome haplogroup I2a1b. However, today the WHG component peaks among Estonians and Lithuanians, in the East Baltic region, at almost 50%.

Ancient North Eurasian (ANE): this is the twist in the tale, a component based on a 24,000 year old Upper Paleolithic forager from South Central Siberia, belonging to Y-DNA R*, and known as Mal’ta boy or MA-1. This component was very likely present in Southern Scandinavia since at least the Mesolithic, but only seems to have reached Western Europe after the Neolithic. At some point it also spread into the Americas. In Europe today it peaks among Estonians at just over 18%, and, intriguingly, reaches a similar level among Scots. However, numbers weren’t given in the paper for Finns, Russians and Mordovians, who, according to one of the maps, also carry very high ANE, but their results are confounded by more recent Siberian (ENA) admixture.
1. Amerindian – the modal component of the Native American
2. ANE – the modal component of the Northern Eurasians, which has been isolated from the common cluster with WHG – the highest values in the samples of MA1, AG2, as well as the ancient genomes from Sintashta, Andronov, Afanasievo, Yamnaya, Corded Ware etc. Among the modern populations the highest percentage of ANE has been detected in Kalash population. Almost the same with the ANE component in Lazaridis et al. 2014
3. Arctic – modal component with peak populations Koryak, Chukchi, Eskimos and Itelmens
4. ASI – еру modal component of South Indian populations (i assume that this component is identical to ASI in (Reich et al. 2009).
5. Caucasus-Gedrosia – identical to Pontikos’s Caucasus-Gedrosia cluster
6. EastAsian – the modal component of East Asia
7. ENF – the component of the ancient European Neolithic farmers with the peak in the ancient samples of LBK culture (Lazaridis et al. 2014, Haak et al. 2015). Among the modern populations – the highest values have been detected in Sardinians, Corsicans and Basques.
8. NearEast – the modal component of Middle Easterners
9. Oceanian – the modal component of the aboriginal inhabitants of Oceania, Austronesian, Melanesia and Micronesia(the peak in modern Papuans and Australian Aborigines)
10. Paleo-African – the modal component of African Pygmies and Bushmen
11. Siberian – the modal component of southeastern Siberia
12. Subsaharian – the second African component (Mandinka, Yoruba and Esan)
13. WHG-UHG – the native component of the ancient European Mesolithic hunter-gatherers (Lazaridis et al. 2014, Haak et al. 2015). Among the modern populations – the highest percentage in the population of Estonians, Lithuanians, Finns and others.
2. Ancestral Altaic- A major study published earlier this year specifically indicates strong genetic linkages between American Indians and the indigenous inhabitants of the southern Altai Mountains, a rugged area situated near the intersection of southern Siberia, western Mongolia, and eastern Kazakhstan. As the authors argue, “The Altai region of southern Siberia has played a critical role in the peopling of northern Asia as an entry point into Siberia and a possible homeland for ancestral Native Americans.”

Archaic human: NEANDERTHAL

Archaic African: Sub-Saharan Africans actually have more archaic admixture. The difference is that it came not from Neanderthals but from archaic groups within Africa. About 13% of the sub-Saharan gene pool comes from an earlier expansion of pre-modern hominins that occurred c. 111,000 years ago and seems to correspond to the entry of Skhul-Qafzeh hominins into the Middle East (Watson et al., 1997). This higher level of admixture may have come about because archaic Africans were behaviorally and physically closer to modern humans than the Neanderthals were.



  1. soso says:

    I am arabic and I found  many origins in my DNA result its amazing I use gedmatch

  2. I really appreciate this video, I was wondering if you could give more a little more insight regarding the results , specifically the oracle. It's probably simple but this whole journey has got me confused. Are only the closest groups connected with you. Everywhere I upload (23andMe, GedMatch, DNA.LAND, My Heritage) I get different results. You seem to be way more experienced than I. Any guidance or insight will be appreciated

  3. Which project /test on gedmatch is better for mixed individuals?

  4. MyNycable says:

    Do you have any Sardinian percentage?

  5. Toni Moore says:

    you can also upload raw data to DNA.land.com

  6. Thanks for helping me with my GEDMatch

  7. So, would you say that the MDLP Project is the best for Hispanics/Latinos? I am also Hispanic and was wondering about which one to do since they vary sometimes.

  8. so what do the numbers on the spreadsheet mean?

  9. sweetchari says:

    I got West Asia too (close to double digits)which to me is a bit unusual to me as a black American but it was interesting too. I think about my ancestors too not so much my genetic material but perhaps I should, lol. You're a great fusion of ethnicities. Thanks for sharing!

  10. good stuff man. our results are fairly close.

  11. Great job breaking it all down, I posted my ancestryDNA results on my page hope uncheck it out??, I also posted my DNA land results which is another site that you can upload your raw data to and it breaks down your DNA like 23andme, my results were very similar to ancestryDNA but a lil diff in percentages. I tried gedmatch too but you need a guide to figure it that site out lol.

  12. John Dean says:

    it's cool but gedmatch gave me about 4 percent west Asia and a little over 2 percent middle east. ancestry showed zero terrorist blood so I'm sticking with that lol. I have a dark sense of humor lol. have a good night:)

  13. John Dean says:

    I received the message you sent to Diana lol. Don't know how that happened…

  14. really says:

    Great video …loved it very informative

  15. really says:

    use dna.land as well its free .it would be interesting to see how it portrays your results as well there.

  16. I don't understand these abbreviations, what does this mean?

    Amerindian –
    ANE 2.33
    Arctic –
    ASI –
    Caucas-Gedrosia 1.99
    EastAsian –
    ENF 6.88
    NearEast 1.11
    Oceanian –
    Paleo-African 2.08
    Siberian 1.13
    Subsaharian 79.71
    WHG-UHG 4.78

  17. Great video! you give the viewer an insight on what to look for in there results and a detail description. Keep up the Great videos!

  18. Hi thanks for uploading. This was fascinating. It would be neat if Gedmatch had a map of where the people groups are found. It would even be interesting project to trace the migrations with a timeline, since it has some ancient populations in some of the results…

  19. Once again, I enjoyed another great video. When I uploaded my raw data to Gedmatch I utilized Africa9 Admixture calculator. There was a nice mix. I noticed that the results corroborates nicely with AncestryDNA's analysis of inferred ancestral roots in my DNA. I would recommend getting an even more expanded analysis by uploading your raw data to DNA Tribes. What you'll want to do is sign up for their SNP Analysis which is way more dynamic than their STR Analysis test. DNA Tribes gives you colorful charts and provides an extensive in-depth analysis of your DNA across 44 world regions. You'll also receive a full global ethnic population comparison chart for each world region your DNA is traceable to along with an African panel breakdown of ethnic groups you share genetic similarity with. Check them out. DNA Tribes had issues in the beginning. However, when they updated their genotyping technology they have since realized a higher precision success rate and customer retention. I was pleased with my SNP Analysis results and love the heavy emphasis in the incorporation of colorful charts for each section of their analysis.

  20. Juan Cena says:

    your results look pretty average around most parts of the DR. what part of the DR are your folks from anyways?

  21. Mino R.D. says:

    I think u need to verify your youtube account so u can upload longer video than 10 minutes

  22. Mino R.D. says:

    thanks for the video

  23. John Dean says:

    You have a lot of terrorist blood lol, joking…

  24. interesting how this one's results differ from the other site. Hmmm.. ..

  25. you should have went with 23andme

  26. Glad you made a video on Gedmatch! I am still playing around with it, but I was curious about something. You were speaking of something with the chromosomes and how they almost look like an art piece. I was trying to find which one that was. The closest I could find was the gedmatch archaic dna matches

  27. I see you posted your first gedmatch video on my results on the same admixture test they had me most closely to afro Caribbean followed by apache and African american I didn't know I was Afro Caribbean at all

  28. I love the video and the subject of ancestry dna, I have a gedmatch kit number if you want to compare it.

  29. They say that Dodecad World 9 is the most accurate for New World Afro Descendants. Its looks consistent in terms of my high African percentage, but I dont know about the South Asian part! I may have South Asian in me. I am Black American. I do have a ancestrydna match with South Indian roots. Collective, Gedmatch has me between 77 to 85% African.
