Aramaic DNA Project - Goals

Through the Aramaic Project we wish to answer the following three questions:

1. What relationships (if any) can be discerned by examining the haplogroup/haplotype data of all remaining Aramaic speaking people of the world?
2. What relationships (if any) can be discerned by examining the haplogroup/haplotype data of the: a) Christian speakers of Aramaic? b) Jewish speakers of Aramaic? c) Members of other religions who are speakers of Aramaic (Mandaean, Muslim, etc.)?
3. How do Aramaic speakers compare genetically to other people in the region: Armenians, Jews (Mizrahi, Ashkenazi & Sephardi), Kurds, Iranians, Turks, Levantine Syrians & Iraqis, Arabs, Azeris, Georgians, etc.)?
