Gökhem2 Ancient 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 Gökhem2 excavated in Sweden into formats familiar to genetic genealogists. I also filtered with SNPs tested by DNA testing companies like FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry and upload to GEDMatch as kit# F999934.
