There once was a little-known corporation called the Dutch East India
Company (/Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie)/, that was instrumental in
transactions (genetic and otherwise) between south-east Asia and Europe.

>> I'm disappointed at everyone here. I just pointed out that we've found freaking R1b1* (or maybe R1b1b1) in Indonesia and nobody cares. There's no logical explanation for it. It can't be European, that would be just too unlikely, and India seems to be just as unlikely, also, because Sengupta's study of India found 0 R1b1* or R1b1b1 out of 900 samples.
