Genes mirror the geography of the greater Himalayan region. Legend Fig. 1. PC1 and PC2 explain genetic distance between populations as directions of variance. This was performed on a thinned dataset of 34,253 SNPs. Each dot represents an individual in the dataset. Each population is represented by a shape, Tibetans (X), Sherpa (), Han (O), Nepalese (•), Indian (+), Pakistan (Δ) and the Pamir populations (□). Each of the Indian ancestral groups as described in Basu et al., 2016, are indicated as follows; [] ANI, + ASI, * AAA, ** ATB. The Nepalese appear as an admixed population between the northern Himalayan cluster (Tibet, Sherpa and Han) and the southern Himalayan cluster (India and Pakistan), with clear genetic variance between ethnic subgroups
