They make perfect sense for an egyptian. The saudi component is probably the SW asian component which is found among all arabic populations. Note that all European popultions are south european aka from Mediterranean coast, with whom Egypt has relationship that goes thousand years back.

Saudi is just SW Asian,I scored 45% Saudi without having any recent Arab ancestry.

That part is quite strange. It's as if one of your parents is Egyptian, and the other comes from a mystery country in Asia.

Everything else I can understand because all the other places are populations near you that average out to around Egypt. ("Europe" is a bit misleading -- your European matches are all eastern Mediterranean, which is a fairly distinct group from most of the rest of Europe.)

Currently, WeGene use a training dataset which is consisted by samples of 39 different populations. The relationship between user's genome and the 39 different populations is calculated by an admixture algorithm.

According to this model, the percentage can be interpreted as how much of your genome is very similar with the corresponding population. For example, 35.66% Saudis means that 35.66% region of your genome is very similar with typical Saudis.

Asia other is a whole group that includes all countries except east asian countries. Saudi or gulf is part of Asian continent. Hence it is under Asia other. For e.g. We south asians got Asia other, which was further divided in South asia, Iranian, uzbek etc.

The thing is, "Saudi " and Iranian" are both existing populations and on his list: so I'm not sure what part of Asia he could get any pull toward, unless it means "extremely western Asia," i.e. the Sinai Peninsula. :)

Maybe it's the ENF dividing between Iranian and Saudi? Or It can be minor CHG as well.

In 23andme, I cluster directly in between negev bedouins and palestinians and in the near eastern area.. other egyptians i saw cluster mostly in the african area near mozabites.

So maybe it really does mean "extreme west Asia."

{EDIT}
I just realized I was misreading this. "Asian other" is actually a header that includes Saudi, Iranian, etc.

copts do seem to appear more near eastern than regular egyptians due to a lack of west african admixture in comparison to their muslim brethren...

Not sure if my results are strange or normal, for a Welsh person, with some known Irish, and possibly little Scottish?

"Hola!" Interesting... from your French friend.. lol.. I guess we have to take these results with a pinch of salt, as this site is geared to Chinese Populations. Did you order the living DNA test yet? I am awaiting mine to arrive, that should be interesting I think.

Eagerly checking the mail several times a day, but it could be a while yet, I'm all the way over in West Canada

Good to know you're closer to the England than I am and are waiting for yours too, I'm always irrationally worried that mine won't show up or something.
In defense of Wegenes, I suppose they did a pretty good job of dividing my european ancestry from my native american, 2.00% on paper, so 1.76 "maya" ain't too shabby.

I have a question..does the iranian part actually mean I have iranian blood in me at some point in history?>

So from this we can conclude that copts are a mash up of mostly south west asian ancestry, iranian, and southern euro with a dash of african..

It's not a generally accurate test. According to it, I'm some sort of Iranian-Hungarian mix.

To be specific it means your Iranian calculation matches that of those with known Iranian ancestry.

Every single one of these components match Egyptian history with roman invasion, jewish presence, greek invasion, near eastern ancestry, persian invasion etc..

A lot of people overlook those simple facts. There is no doubt some of my ancestors were probably raped by the Mongols among others.

Praise be to the Mongols and others, for without their hard work and effort you would not be here. I would venture to say most ancestral lines have a sprinkling of rape, NPEs, forbidden matings somewhere in the pile. Additional factors that must be considered if your results seem a little wonky. I can personally attest to this issue because I posses a high degree of wonk. Makes it more interesting and elevates the challenge for sure. :rolleyes:
