Abraham’s genetic threads- Jewish genes

From looking at these patterns of relatedness the authors infer that despite the genetic variation in the modern Jewry, most of the world’s Jews, from Iran to Morocco to Lithuania, share common ancestry from a source population which flourished ~2,500 years ago. 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.”
