Lake Baikal Gene

Postby Raven » Sun Jan 24, 2016 1:20 pm

I received my rare genes from history results and had the Lake Baikal gene. Is this referring to Native American ancestry or could it be Asian ancestry? I also received the Amerind gene. In my fingerprint report I received an Asian lll marker and number 2 was indo-mongoloid Naga. Is the gene showing up due to that population or is that population possibly a false positive? I also received an Asian one marker and a Native American 2 marker. Since my mom did not receive the lake Baikal gene or Asian lll marker along with matches to Mongolia and Southeast Asia, I have concluded that this is all coming from my father. I also have more Hispanic matches and higher ranked native matches.

Where can I find more information about how this gene was discovered? I've read the description on DNA Consultants' website but was wondering how many people actually have this gene?

Good evening, Raven,

I suggest you try an Internet search for other scientific articles. I found this one: http://dienekes.blogspot.com/2005/12/mt ... -lake.html .

I hope it helps.
