The Jomon and Genetic Connections to Ancient East and Southeast Asians
My project explores genetic connections between the ancient Jomon people of Japan and other populations. The Jomon represent a deeply diverged East Asian lineage, and there's interest in knowing more about their relationship with other ancient East and Southeast Asians. As part of my research project, I learned how to use Python to conduct f3/f4 statistical tests and format the results to look for patterns. During my presentation, I plan to explain this process by presenting several key figures I generated (also using Python) and explaining how ancestry can be inferred from the numerical results.
