Recently got a hold of Genetic polymorphisms for 17 Y-chromosomal STR haplotypes in Jammu and Kashmir Saraswat Brahmin population by Yadav et al. (2010) and ran the 17 Y-STR's of the 109 samples through Urasin's YPredictor. Some interesting Y-DNA R results came up.



Pop H* DYS456 DYS389I DYS390 DYS389II DYS458 DYS19 DYS385 b DYS393 DYS391 DYS439 DYS635 DYS392 Y_GATA_H4 DYS437 DYS438 DYS448 n Haplogroup Probability
KSB H087 15 14 25 30 14 15 11 13 13 10 12 25 14 11 14 11 18 1 R1b1*-P25*(xP297) 98%
JSB H016 15 13 25 29 18 15 10 14 14 11 11 21 11 12 15 11 19 1 R1b1b2-M269 75%


KSB = Kashmiri Saraswat Brahmin, JSB = Jammu Saraswat Brahmin, copy and paste into Notepad to view tidy data string

Where do these samples fit within the established clusters of R1b-P25 and R1b-M269? Will post the other results elsewhere.

I need to copy/paste them in t a spreadsheet to do some comparisons, but there are some oddities so I didn't spot any western European types easily. On the other hand, they do like R1b-ish so the haplogroup predictor is probably right. They are R1b's of some type.

DMXX,

I think that Mehrgarh could be the origin of R1 or R1b and that it spread together with some mtDNA T1a1a1 (7K TMRCA) from there. But who knows...

Did anyone figure out which subclade these belong to?

It is more likely that some R1b travelled with Elamite farmers to Mehrgarh. The latter is an outpost of Neolithic farming in its spread from the Near East, rather than farming spreading from Mehrgarh to the Near East.

Where did you get this information from? I agree with an west to east spread of farming but I wasn't aware on anyone having narrowed down the region of West Asia from which farming came to South Asia. How does it make sense to derive South Asia's likely fully West Asian farmers from a population which likely had large amounts of J1, T, E1b and was heavily SW Asian shifted?

@ newtoboard

I'm not sure what you are saying. Why do you you think that Elam had large amounts of J1, T and E1b? Bear in mind that present-day Iran contains a mixture of populations, including groups which arrived long after the Neolithic.

The evidence of the route taken to Mehrgarh is archaeological. I am using "Elam" here to refer to the Neolithic of what is now Iran. It began in/near the Zagros Mountains.

Our definition of Elam differs then. I think it best refers to the portion of Iran that lies on the Mesopotamian plains and hence why it I think it likely had large amounts of J1, T, E1b.

J1+E+T ~40-50%

Elam is the Persian heartland from Susa to Anshan between Zagros and the Gulf.

J1 - currently about 10-30% in what was the Elam region

Yes you are right. We only have the name "Elam" once we have writing, which was millennia after the movement from the Zagros region to Mehrgarh. By the time we have the name, farmers had moved south to settle in the region known as Elam.

I should not have used the term Elamite. I was thinking of the suggestions that Dravidian is linked to Elamite linguistically, but that is by no means accepted by all linguists. Elamite probably developed from a language spoken by earlier farmers closer to the heartland of the Neolithic in
/near the Zagros.

If this has been scientifically proven can you post your sources.
