Dodecad open for submissions

By Razib Khan | February 8, 2011 11:58 am

Since I know plenty of friends are getting, or just got, their V3 results, I thought I’d pass this on, Open-ended submission opportunity for 23andMe data (#2):

Who is eligible

Everyone who is of European, Asian, or North African ancestry and all four of his/her grandparents are from the same European, Asian, or North African ethnic group or the same European, Asian, or North African country.

Also, Zack has more than 30 individuals in HAP. The “cow belt” is still way underrepresented. The only Bengalis in the data set are my parents.

    I have 1 half Bengali relative from the US and 2 half Indian relatives in the UK – do you want me to reach out to these? Or are they much use to a study like the Harappan one?

  2. heez accepting half-brownz, so i think it would be useful.

  3. pconroy: Sure, get them to send their data.

    Razib: Not just half-brown, I am accepting quarter and less too. 🙂

  4. I am still waiting. It’s been a month so I likely have another 2-4 weeks to go. I suck at patience.

  5. a month since it arrived? 5 weeks seems like a plausible turnaround right now from arrival.

  6. Yeah they received it on Jan 11.

    Hi Razib, how are you? Do you know anyone accepting people with multiple-european groups ancestry? I am felling discriminated! Maybe I need some affirmative action 🙂 Thanks!

    Just got my Dodecad results back. Seems I have a 1.5% South Asian admixture interesting! My west Asian admixture is at 14.4% interesting enough seems to be close to double the % average that the Irish_D dodecad group have.

    wow! I am excited about this since I didn’t think I could figure out how to do admixture on my own. I hope he takes me, even though Ashkenazim have been studied so much already!

    Please could somebody tell me how to get the autosomal data from 23andme? The only options available to download raw data are

    – mitochondrial DNA
    – only the Y chromosome
    – or all DNA (chromosomes 1-22, X, Y, and mitochondrial).

    I have search on the Internet but there are no instructions to get the autosomal data.

    I only need a link. Thanks in advance.
