I haven't received my raw data as of yet. Where do these results geographically place me? HGDP was used for this analysis.

Do you know your ancestry, and if you do, what is it?

Do you know your ancestry, and if you do, what is it?

I am Northern Iranian (mother is Azeri with tribal roots in Northwestern Anatolia, father is Mazandarani with Kurdish roots, Caucasian influence on both sides).

Any help?

I'm sure someone will reply who has more knowledge than I do.

Thanks, I just hope my raw data comes along soon. Have you heard of this company? They test for free ^_^

It seems you are in between Central Asia and Europe -- where most Iranic people are! So it looks good to me. However, I'll call on DMXX, Kurd, or Zeph to comment as they have a wealth of knowledge regarding the region.

As a fellow north Iranian by heritage, you plot exactly where myself and NK19191 normally plot. Would have guessed that (or a Pakistani-European mix) is what you were. :)

On Global PC1x2 charts, we (north Iranians) are located in an intermediary position between Europeans and South-Central Asians (Pakistani ethnic groups) with a slight shift to the Near-East.

Myself, you and NK19191 are all of similar extractions (I am paternally Azeri Iranian + very distant probable North Caucasus maternally northern Persian, NK19191 is a mix of Persian, Azeri and Georgian).

Please check this post (http://www.anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?2281-Anthrogenica-community-Interpretome-chart&p=32977&viewfull=1#post32977) out, which reveals the overall distribution of various West Asian groups in this PC1x2 configuration.

That looks about where Iranians would fall.

Thanks... I think I'm a bit more Eastern shifted though? Or is it a Northern shift towards Caucasia?

I could answer the question better if I knew what South-Central Asian samples that Genes for Good was using. But from what DMXX has stated, your position on the PCA plot seems consistent with your genetic ancestry. Europeans populations might appear closer due to something known as projection bias on PCAs, which is common issue with academic studies that feature Principle Component Analsys, you might want to verify this with Davidski of the Eurogenes Blog to be certain though. You can contact him here directly, his user name is Generalissimo.
