- The Following report shows that Azeris from North, Azeris in Iran and Anatolian Turks show a similar DNA or gene markers. "Iranian" means Azeri Turk. Persians are not related to Azeris and is not listed here. "Iranian" is listed next to Turkey. The only ones in Iran who are related to Anatolian Turks are Azeri Turks. It is very clear that Persians are not related to Anatolian Turks. There is another genetic chart of Persians in Eastern Iran which relates Persians to Europeans. Also Kurds and Caspian is separated from Iranian. It also confirms that Iranian means Azeri Turks.
University of Chicago Report: Iranian peoples
Populations located west of the Indus basin, including those from Iran, Anatolia and the Caucasus, exhibit a common mtDNA lineage composition, consisting mainly of western Eurasian lineages, with a very limited contribution from South Asia and eastern Eurasia (fig. 1). Indeed, the different Iranian populations show a striking degree of homogeneity. This is revealed not only by the nonsignificant FST values and the PC plot (fig. 6) but also by the SAMOVA results, in which a significant genetic barrier separates populations west of Pakistan from those east and north of the Indus Valley (results not shown). These observations suggest either a common origin of modern Iranian populations and/or extensive levels of gene flow amongst them.
