    Modeling Syrians on G25...

    Does anyone have more information on where in the country these samples originate from? They seem to be eastern shifted with regard to other Levantine pops. They are the least Levantine of anyone:



    Code:
    Sample	Details	Fit	Map	Assyrian	BedouinB	Druze	Samaritan	Turkish Kayseri	Yoruba
    1	Lebanese_Christian:Average		0.7648 	Open Map	0	0.83	75	23.33	0.83	0
    2	Palestinian:Average		0.9667 	Open Map	3.33	25	55.83	7.5	4.17	4.17
    3	Syrian:Average		0.8456 	Open Map	14.17	10	42.5	2.5	28.33	2.5

    Them being the same country means very little in reality. Many places that were once "the same country" have different genetics like India and Pakistan.

    I think the models are a bit misleading. Syria is much larger and more ethnically diverse than Lebanon and Palestine. Parts of Syria (near Damascus and along the coast) are probably mostly Levantine while other regions (Aleppo and the northeast) are more heavily Mesopotamian and/or Anatolian.

    There's also the distinction between Christians and Muslims. The Lebanese in this model are Christians, who are the least mixed and the most "Levantine" of any of these groups. You'll likely find similar results with Palestinian and many Syrian Christians. Other Syrian Christians will probably be more (or almost entirely) Assyrian. Muslims as a whole are much more mixed, which is clear from the presence of noticeable SSA and substantial Bedouin in the Palestinians and Syrians. Lebanese Muslims are also very mixed, but I think they're slightly different from most Palestinian and Syrian Muslims due to their geographic isolation.
