The Genetic History of Greenlandic-European contact

The Inuit ancestors of the Greenlandic people arrived in Greenland close to 1000 years ago. Since then, Europeans from many different countries have been present in Greenland. Consequently, the present-day Greenlandic population has ~25% of its genetic ancestry from Europe. In this study, we investigated to what extent different European countries have contributed to this genetic ancestry.
