    There is no special Pashtun-Roma connection.

    This is not one of my rare alleles admixture test. The sourcing of allele frequencies here is based on common alleles also, like all the other ADMIXTURE based calculators out there. Thus sharing between tester and population references also reflects very distant associations based on common origins. In this case, for testers outside of W and S Asia, a Pashtun score most likely is based on the Caucasus based alleles within Pashtuns

    And this is why exactly, all these admixture calculators have the same basic flaw and give people false impressions that they are Paktuns, central Asians and English and many take it literally.
