Tyrolean Ancient DNA

The Tyrolean Iceman, a 5300-year-old Copper age individual, was discovered in 1991 on the Tisenjoch Pass in the Italian part of the Oetztal Alps. The authors sequenced the complete genome of the Iceman. The authors had mentioned in the paper that they were able to extract 125,729 SNPs from all samples. I was able to convert only 2 samples ERR107308 and ERR107309 due to technical limitations.
