Ancient Hungarian Neolithic genome - NE1

The Great Hungarian Plain was a crossroads of cultural transformations that have shaped European prehistory. The authors had analysed a 5,000-year transect of human genomes, sampled from petrous bones giving consistently excellent endogenous DNA yields, from 13 Hungarian Neolithic, Copper, Bronze and Iron Age burials including two to high (~22 × ) and seven to ~1 × coverage, to investigate the impact of these on Europe’s genetic landscape. I converted the raw data of NE1 from Polgár-Ferenci-hát site in Hungary into formats familiar to genetic genealogists. I also filtered with SNPs tested by DNA testing companies like FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry and uploaded to GEDmatch as kit# F999937.
