Results from comparisons of low-coverage ancient DNA sequencing. Low-coverage (0.1–0.26 fold) sequence data from 12 ancient DNA samples from 11 Bronze Age Eurasian individuals were compared to each other using a panel of haplotypes from the 1000 Genomes CEU population. All comparisons made within a sample produce positive aggregated log-likelihood ratio values indicating that they are consistent with originating in a single diploid individual. Comparisons made between samples produce negative aggregated log-likelihood values, confirming that the two samples are from are from different individuals. The exception to this is the comparison between samples RISE507 and RISE508, the two samples reportedly made from the same individual, indicating that they are consistent with originating in the same individual
