    And what is the source of this? It would seem to me that Iranians would be closest to Pakistanis and NW Indians or possibly to Eastern Europeans.

    There were no comparisons given to Pakistanis/Punjabis/Kashmiris etc.
    I imagine its from that racial distance calculator at racearchives.com.
    The only reason they may be more similar to NW Europeans is if it were Mediterranean NW Europeans that were tested.

    As far as I know, there is no one subrace for all iranians. The ethnics are just as diverse as here.

    Intriguingly, the population of present-day Iran, speaking a major Indo-European language (Farsi), appears to have had little genetic influence from the M17-carrying Indo-Iranians. It is possible that the pre-Indo-European population of Iran—effectively an eastern extension of the great civilizations of Mesopotamia—may have reached sufficient population densities to have swamped any genetic contribution from a small number of immigrating Indo-Iranians. If so, this may have been a case of language replacement through the ‘‘elite-dominance’’ model (29). Alternatively, an Indo-Iranian language may have been the lingua franca of the steppe nomads and the surrounding settled populations, facilitating communication between the two. Over time, this language could have become the predominant language in Persia, reinforced and standardized by rulers such as Cyrus the Great and Darius in the mid-first millennium B.C. Whichever model is correct, the Iranians sampled here (from the western part of the country) appear to be more similar genetically to Afro-Asiatic-speaking Middle Eastern populations than they are to Central Asians or Indians. This finding contrasts with a recent analysis of Eastern Iranian populations, which have high frequencies of Y-chromosome haplogroup 3, defined by the M17 analogue SRY-1532A (30). It is likely that the Dasht-e Kavir and Dasht-e Lut deserts in the center of the country have acted as significant barriers to gene flow.

    Dear PARTHIAN,

    Would you please give us the source of this data ?

    How would they be closest to Eastern Europeans if table clearly shows that it is the opposite:

    Selected Populations: Iran, England, Neolithic
    Similarity: 82%
    Selected Populations: Iran, France, Neolithic
    Similarity: 84%
    Selected Populations: Iran, Russia, Neolithic
    Similarity: 84%
    Selected Populations: Iran, Germany, Neolithic
    Similarity: 86%
    Selected Populations: Iran, Central Europe
    Similarity: 88%
    Selected Populations: Iran, Jericho
    Similarity: 88%
    Selected Populations: Iran, Denmark, Neolithic
    Similarity: 91%
    Selected Populations: Iran, North-West Europe
    Similarity: 96%

    From my point of view this table is just some random shit, since the author wouldn't even provide the source.

    Best Regards,
    Xakep
