All that being said, genetics is only part of the puzzle here. In the discussion the authors suggest that “Yet, the sharing of Iranian and Iraqi Jews of a branch on the phylogenetic tree with the Adygei suggests that a certain degree of admixture may have occurred with local populations not included in this study.”
