101 Ancient Eurasian DNA

The Bronze Age (BA) of Eurasia (c. 3,000-1,000 years BC, 3-1 ka BC) was a period of major cultural changes. Authors had provided 101 ancient genomes with their publications. Alex of Russian community, Sergey (ethnocalc (at) and myself converted the raw data of these sample into formats familiar to genetic genealogists. The complete SNPs are available for download. We also filtered with SNPs tested by DNA testing companies like FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry. If we find it to have more SNPs common with them, we uploaded to GEDMatch and the reference GEDmatch IDs Haplogroups, site location, age of the sample etc as per the authors can be found in Ancient DNA page.
