    Little Genetic Divergence across Diverse Populations of India

    Low Levels of Genetic Divergence across Geographically and Linguistically Diverse Populations from India
    Populations from India, and groups from South Asia more generally, form a genetic cluster, so that individuals placed within this cluster are more genetically similar to each other than to individuals outside the cluster. However, the amount of genetic differentiation among Indian populations is relatively small. The authors conclude that genetic variation in India is distinctive with respect to the rest of the world, but that the level of genetic divergence is smaller in Indians than might be expected for such a geographically and linguistically diverse group.

    I thought it was established that the higher castes are genetically closer to Europeans and substantially different from the lower castes.
