From Genome Blogger Diogenes. Here’s the details:
I’m very interested in samples from Europe, like Ireland (particularly the Western part), UK (all, but more Cornwall, Wales, Scotland Highlands), Finland, Scandinavia (especially Norway), Iceland, Switzerland, Austria (especially Tirol), Slovakia, Carpathians in general (regions of Romania, Poland, etc), Germany, Ukraine, Iberia and France (especially Alps, Massif Central, Pyrenees) with regional identification. Plus people from the Americas with significant known Amerindian ancestry (tribe or regional-tagged please). Also any mountain or island region in the world not represented in my current sample. I know I’m naming several regions with few participants in other projects. So I’m not even mentioning Madagascar, Sami, Indonesia, or Australian samples with known or possible aboriginal origin.
I need to do a post rounding up a list of Genome Bloggers and also pointers to data sources soon. Also, in case you haven’t kept track of it, Zack Ajmal has been pruning problematic individuals from the various data sets he’s been collecting (e.g., duplicates, very close relatives, etc.).
