- Admixture calculations are performed using Structure 2.2.
- The analysis involves upwards of 18,000 "hand-picked" markers.
- Parental populations are confirmed as HapMap samples (Utah whites, Yorubans, and Chinese/Japanese).
- Finally: "We are working on an improved alternative ancestry analysis that will use the entire collection of SNPs to segregate individuals into ancestral clusters (e.g. Northern vs. Southern European)."
In contrast, ABD/DNAprint uses 176 SNPs.
