Experimental Protocol

DNA was collected from 15 Kashmiri individuals from the Kashmir Valley who provided written consent. The families of these individuals have resided in the Kashmir Valley for at least three generations and have no history of marriages outside of the valley or to a non-Kashmiri. Sixteen Kashmiri Tibetans from Srinagar, India, who have Tibetan ancestry and now practice Islam, were also genotyped. We performed further genotyping on a previously undescribed population of 32 first- and second-generation Tibetan exiles in McLeod Ganj, which included two individuals from the Tibetan Children’s Village, to serve as population references. These individuals were then genotyped for single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) using the Affymetrix Genome-Wide Human SNP Array 6.0.
