Statistical Analysis of Genetic Data for the Balkans plus Historical Evidence
Keywords:Haplogroups, Multidimensional Model, Euclidean Distances, Genetic Distances, Genetic Proximity, Cluster, Balkan Countries
Initial statistical analysis of genetic data on the Balkan nations showed the extent of their genetic links to each other. A careful review of the data highlighted an interesting feature: relatively large genetic differences between Greek regions. This is clearly expressed in the cases of Northern Greece, whose population is genetically much closer to the population of Bulgaria than to the population of Central and Southern Greece, whose population is genetically closer to the Albanian population than to the population of Northern Greece. These conclusions are based on numerical values from the results of statistical analysis of genetic data from EUPEDIA. The article also presents several historical testimonies that offer an explanation of the established regional genetic features of the population of today's Greece.
