New study claims that Finns have not Mongolian admixture
A month ago I commented here about a mistake in admixture results regarding Asian admixture in Finland. It didn't take long to see a new study telling a different Finnish story. In this new study authors claim that the Asian admixture in Finland is North Asian (Siberian), not Mongolian, which seems to be right. However they have also two drawbacks included making the result as to the Finnish admixtures less accurate. First the study gives a wrong idea about Finnish and Saami histories. Secondly the study uses only two Finnish samples which makes almost impossible to see accurate admixture amounts in Finland and it makes also impossible to specify any Finnish admixture in other populations, like in Scandinavians. I can't understand why authors decided to use only two Finnish samples because we have publicly ready to download 100 Finnish samples from the 1000genomes project and 1000genome samples are much better than used samples, including around 10 millions SNPs per sample.
