View Full Version : Yamna I2a (RISE 552) and the IE expansion

The ca. 2500 BCE sample in Allentoft analyzed as I2a- S12195 is also of solid autosomal Yamna composition. And it's part of a strong R1b environment. Is it then arguable that European M-223 currently at reasonable levels (if very minoritary) in Western Continental Europe basically, was part of the Yamna push to the West? Or is this just a mere coincidence?
