Whats new?

a) added 3 new reference populations belorussians, lithuanians and CEU (Utah, USA residens of western and northern european descent)
b) increased number of markers to 495k.
c) added graph of population averages (saami admix individuals excluded).


a) Identified 4 different clusters
- 1) GREEN: CEU and French -> may be interpreted as the western and northern european cluster.
- 2) RED: Lithuanian and Belorussian cluster -> may be interpreted as the eastern european cluster.
- 3) BLUE: Finnic and Saami cluster -> may be interpreted as a north-east european cluster.
- 4) PINK: Orcadians -> British isles.

b) All finns except 2 individuals appears to cluster fully with the BLUE cluster.
c) All norwegians except 2 individuals (likely saami admix) appears to cluster mainly to the GREEN cluster.
d) All swedes except 1 individual (likely saam/finnc admix) appears to cluster mainly to the GREEN cluster as norwegians but shows increased affinity to RED the lithuanain cluster compared to norwegians.
e) All saami cluster fully to the BLUE cluster.

Enclosed regional ADMIXTURE graph including all individuals and ADMIXTURE graphs with population averages.

Whats next?

a) Increasing K.
b) get more individuals
