    Some Native Americans have West Eurasion DNA.

    Living in the UK, I was a bit surprised to discover I have a small percentage (around 1%) of "Native American" DNA which I've since been told probably relates to the Huns in Europe.
    I also have about 14% West Eurasian DNA, so was interested when I came across the link below about Native Americans. Is it likely that my "Native American" and "West Eurasian" DNA could have come from the same source? Thanks.

    To answer your question shortly, the answer would be yes, if by "14% West Eurasian DNA" You mean, 'ancestral north eurasian' or ANE (14% being an appropriate for someone of British descent). Native Americans have a lot of ANE as well. The 1% Native American you get is most likely the result of you by chance having just a smidge more ANE than other people of your background.

    Thank you. This is how the information was presented.

    O. Nevermind, that's just a crappy test. Everybody has random noise on there.

    BTW does the name Johnafro1 mean anything to you?

    there's a possibility the the the native american samples that comapny had a small amount of european dna due to colnization.

    I had a test from Britain's DNA as well, which came up with pretty similar results, see below.

    Ancient African 2%
    Pan African 2%
    East African 0%
    West Eurasian 13%
    South West Asian 2%
    European 74%
    South Asian 3%
    North Asian 1%
    East Asian 1%
    Pacific 0%
    Native American 2%

    In fact, both of our results seems to be fairly average for Britain in terms of the West Eurasian component, according to the figures they sent me, below:

    Ancient African 1%
    Pan African 1%
    East African 1%
    West Eurasian 13%
    South West Asian 7%
    European 70%
    South Asian 2%
    North Asian 1%
    East Asian 1%
    Pacific 1%
    Native American 1%

    The big question for me is what is this 'West Eurasian' component? Is it Western Hunter-Gatherer, or ANE as Kale suggests above? Or is it something else? It seems to show up a lot in Berbers and in Sardinia and the West Med according to the comparison chart. However, it looks to be different from the 'Mediterranean' component that is present in the European breakdown image, and which seems to be a better fit for EEF.

    I'd guess then that 'West Eurasian' is maybe WHG like. Does anyone else have any experience comparing Britain's DNA results to other tests though? Is this, as Kale again suggests, just a rubbish test?

    Not really although similar to my username, not one that I've used. Curious.

    Well I have been told by someone who knows more than me about DNA and who is closely involved in research groups that the test itself (chromo2) is sound. I'm just repeating what I was told.

    Yes, I'm pretty confident about the test too, the Chromo2 chip seems good. The annoying thing is not being able to compare results with other tests. Is the 'Mediterranean' component the same as 'West Med' on Eurogenes for example.

    There doesn't seem to be many other AllMyAncestry tests posted up on this site either.

    If it's of interest, my 'European' breakdown is as follows:

    Finnish: 13%
    Ashkenazi Jewish: 9%
    Balto-Slavic: 9%
    Northwest European: 43%
    Mediterranean: 19%
    Steppe Turkic: 2%
    Anatolia/Caucasus: 1%
    Basque/Iberian: 4%

    Yes I agree that is a big draw-back and frustrating. I've even offered to share my raw data with others researching U106 but no interest. Just being advised to take different tests.
