Afontova Gora-2 DNA

Similar to the ancient Malta boy's DNA, the same paper also provided raw data as BAM for another ancient DNA from Afontova Gora-2, located on the western bank of the Enisei River in south-central Siberia. I converted the raw data supplied in this scientific paper to formats familiar with genetic genealogists. I also filtered with SNPs tested by DNA testing companies like FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry in order to upload to GEDMatch but found this ancient DNA has less SNPs (~47000) that are common with them. Hence, I did not upload this to GEDMatch. I also reprocessed from sequence read run files but did not make much difference, but making both available below.
