Ajvide52 DNA

The authors had generated between 0.01 to 2.2-fold genome wide coverage for 6 neolithic hunter-gathers from pitted ware culture, 4 neolithic farmers from funnel beaker culture and 1 late Mesolithic hunter-gatherer. I converted the raw data of Ajvide52 from Pitted Ware Culture excavated in Sweden into formats familiar to 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 that are common with them. Hence, I did not upload this to GEDMatch. However, complete SNPs are available for download.
