Has anybody got the genetic results of ancient Egyptians? How different are they from modern Egyptians?

If I remember correctly, there was a study that found that the ancient Egyptians had less sub-Saharan ancestry than modern Egyptians. I think that same study found that my Mt-DNA subclade was found in 2 Ancient Egyptian samples.
