    Filipinos are genetically closer to Polynesians, or to Southern Chinese/Viet overall?

    Do you think Filipinos are genetically closer to Polynesians such as Samoans & Tongans overall....or are they closer to East/Borderline-EastAsians like the South_Chinese/Vietnamese?

    There are many ethnicities in the Philippines. I think it depends on the ethnicity: some are likely closer to Papuans and Polynesians and others to mainland East Asians. If you look at the % of Denisovan and other archaic-related lineages DNA, it varies substantially (here, here and here) among different ethnic groups in the Philippines. This indicates that there were several migrations from the continent.
