Do they let you download your raw data? How much did it cost?

It is free if you have data from FTDNA or 23&Me. The catch is that your data will be used in scientific research by Colombia and New York Genome Center.

East Africsa is way too diverse genetically to be used as a classification. Places like Mozambique, Uganda and Tanzania are almost entirely populated by Bantus whom are really West Africans genetically. For that reason it can't serve as a reference population. Has DNA Land specified which ethnic group is particularly being used as a reference population?

Nilo-Saharan groups mainly.

They did not use any Bantus under East Africa. As they are mainly West African.

I'm guessing the Masaai? Nilotes have got quite a bit of West African in them so using them would be a bit inaccurate, it may inflate Somali non East African scores.

2/3 is an overestimation, trust me if we were 2/3 nilotic it would show up in the facial features. The real number is at and slightly hovers upwards of 40%
