I stated I was talking about the Davies 2016 only alleles. Also some of the Sub Saharan Africans still have higher ps scores even after combination in the total and most of them close the gap substantially from Rietveld 2013.

I'm not blind.


As I said, there is no point in looking only at the Davies et al hits, when we have a bigger sample by combining them with the previous GWAS (whose hits have actually been replicated several times). Also, if you look at ALFRED combined data, you should look at the factor scores or the continental PS. ALFRED samples are much smaller than 1000 Genomes, so factor analysis filters out the noise and the same does averaging ethnic groups by sub-continent or race or whatever you want to call it. If you look at the combined 1000 Genomes PS or factor, you'll see that all the African groups score lower than Europeans and same if you look at the ALFRED factor.
Clearly this is not the definitive picture but it's getting increasingly more accurate and the differences between groups are still there and in the same direction, even though the magnitude is disputable.
