However, I was notified that DNATribes recently added Kurds to their reference samples, so it is worth to take a look at their data presented in this pdf. In the below image the most important information about Kurds is summarized:
DNATribes is calling the most prominent component in Kurds the "Persian" component (or "world region") regardless of the fact that it is peaking in Kurds (39.5%) and not in Iran (22.0%). Turkmen also have a high portion of this component (32.6%). The description of this component states: "Lake Urmia, Zagros and Elburz Mountains." Lake Urmia is not Persian, the Zagros Mountains are not Persian, either. The name "Persian" is totally misleading for this component, it should be called "Iranian" to be fair. Some people still seem to have problems to distinguish between "Iranian" and "Persian". This is as ignorant as putting Germans and Austrians into one group...oh wait, DNATribes actually did that as well.
Here are populations with more than 6% of the "Persian" component based on DNATribes:
|Druze Israel Carmel||Israel||8.80%|
|Bedouin Negev Desert||6.30%|
|12||Druze Israel Carmel||Israel|
|16||Sephardic Jewish Bulgaria||Jewish|
|19||Ashkenazi Jewish Europe||Jewish|
