The first four PCA dimensions can be seen below:

Project participants can find their co-ordinates in the first four dimensions below:

I have also run MCLUST over the first 4 dimensions, which resulted in 12 clusters inferred:

All Project participants fall in the expected clusters, so there is no need to report any individual clustering results.
