Genetic Study Reveals Egyptians and Yoruba Have Similar DNA Segments To Two Individuals From the Ancient Near East

Source: A Genetic History of the Near East from an aDNA Time Course Sampling Eight Points in the Past 4,000 Years (US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health) 2020 A.D. From the source, "We then estimated kinship40 among our samples and found individuals SFI-43 (female) and SFI-44 (male), who lived around 500 BCE during the Iron Age III under the Persian rule, were first-degree relatives (Figure S4) and shared the same mtDNA haplogroup, T2C1 (Table S4). We kept these two individuals in the dataset for the following test and projected all ancient samples in set 2 onto a principal component…

Source: Continuity and Admixture in the Last Five Millennia of Levantine History from Ancient Canaanite and Present-Day Lebanese Genome Sequences (US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health) 2017 A.D. From the Continuity and Admixture in the Last Five Millennia of Levantine History from Ancient Canaanite and Present-Day Lebanese Genome Sequences source, "These results support population continuity in the region and suggest that several present-day genetic disorders might stem from risk alleles that were already present in the Bronze Age population. In addition, SNPs associated with phenotypic traits show that Sidon_BA and the Lebanese had comparable skin, hair, and eye…
