Venezuelan genetics in context

The chart below shows the main genetic components of nationals from different Latin American countries based on DNA tests carried out for a Brazilian research project. The chart represents the "average" citizen. We know Latin America shows a huge variance. As a reference, my DNA profile says I have about 67% European, 25% native American and 8% sub-Saharan markers. That is still close to the Venezuelan average. As we know, every region has its tiny but clear variations.
