Armenian Populations of the Transcaucasus

Results from both autosomal STR and autosomal SNP analysis indicated genetic continuity between Armenians and neighboring populations. This is consistent with ancient Armenian origins in Highland Southwest Asia. In addition, SNP analysis indicated that Armenian populations share a Caucasus-Anatolian genetic component with populations of the Levantine (East Mediterranean) coast. This might reflect links between the Transcaucasus and Fertile Crescent including Bronze Age Hurrian expansions.
