Dienekes has done a very interesting experiment focusing on the Siberian like admixture found in Finns. The link is below. The one question I have about this is does this then confirm that the ''Siberian'' component found in various ADMIXTURE runs by both Dienekes and Polako in Finns comes from Comb-Ceramic or more recent Uralic speaking ancestors? Or both?

Dienekes has invoked the Seima-Turbino culture. I'm not very familiar with the archaeology of NE Europe, but the ST culture reached that region relatively late (2000 B.C. IIRC) and is best attributed by bronze artefacts. The general movement of the ST culture is in a northwestern direction, as it originated in the Altai-Sayan region (i.e. South Siberia).
