South Asians “represent” in personal genomics

CeCe Moore is reporting the following ethnic breakdowns for 23andMe’s customer database (as claimed by a scientist at the firm):

1000 African American
3500 Latino/Hispanic
5500 East Asian
3400 South Asian
4900 Southern European
6200 Ashkenazi Jewish
56,000 Northern European
1,000 First generation from two continents

All that being said, rumor has it that 3,000 of these South Asians are Iyers! (that’s a joke)
