Anyone with any knowledge of anthropology whatsoever is aware that the Lower Egyptians had significant Mediterranean admixture. The emphasis on Eastern Mediterranean genetics is also unsurprising, as the New Kingdom included much of it at its peak, including the southern extremes of Anatolia.
It was, however, documented by Egyptians themselves that they were ethnically (and phenotypically) distinct from their Libyan, Canaanite, and Nubian neighbors, so the emphasis on their genetic similarities with others in the Bronze Age Mediterranean ecosystem rather than analysis of what made them distinct from their neighbors is rather underwhelming.
