Munda People mtDNA

I’ve been doing a lot of one-off inquiries in my free time into genetic lineage, and I’m basically always astonished, though this time it’s really something. Specifically, I found this Munda Genome (an ethnic group in India), and it turns out they’re closely related to the Basque and the Swedes, as 50% of the Basque in my dataset and 41% of the Swedes in my dataset are a a 92% match with this genome. You can find links to the dataset and the code to produce this chart in my paper, A New Model of Computational Genomics [1]. The Northern Europeans really do have incredibly interesting maternal lineage, and you can read more about it in [1], as the Finns in particular are truly ancient people, with some of them closely related to Denisovans.
