Derenko et al., 2013

Today, I want to present Derenko et al, 2013 and more specifically the mtDNA of five Kurdish Individuals from Iran described in this paper. Three Kurds are from Kermanshah, one Kurd is from Baneh, and one Kurd is from Mashhad.

  1. Are there any academic studies with a large and strategic sample set of Kurdish mtDNA? If you have any on other middle eastern results can you post some links. It's about time a big amount of complete mtDNA genomes are sampled from the middle east. All we have is a small amount from Europe, and all the most recent studies are still focused on Europe which doesn't tell the full diversity of west Eurasian mtDNA. No wonder early on everyone thought all the major farmer lineages(H, J, T, etc.) originated in the Basque country, because they didn't do comparable sampling in the middle east. It just kind of ticks me off how people don't see the biased sampling there.

    1. I added several publications with Kurdish mtDNA, some of them have complete mtDNA genomes.
