Also, I'd really like to see a well thought out D-stats/nMonte analysis of South Central Asia. See also... Yamnaya = Khvalynsk + extra CHG + maybe something else D-stats/nMonte open thread #2

I'll start the ball rolling with a 9-way mixture analysis of 93 European, Near Eastern and Central Asian present-day and ancient populations. The relevant datasheet and R script are available here and here.
