Autosomal ancestry informative markers (AIMs) are useful for inferring individual biogeographical ancestry (I‐BGA) and admixture. Ancestry estimates obtained from Y and mtDNA are useful for reconstructing population expansions and migrations in our recent past but individual genomic admixture estimates are useful to test for association of admixture with phenotypes, as covariate in association studies to control for stratification and, in forensics, to estimate certain overt phenotypes from… Expand

Straightforward Inference of Ancestry and Admixture Proportions through Ancestry-Informative Insertion Deletion Multiplexing
TLDR
A set of 46 ancestry-informative insertion deletion polymorphisms selected to efficiently measure population admixture proportions of four different origins are presented, enabling a more straightforward alternative to the commonly available AIM-SNP typing methods dependent on complex, multi-step protocols or implementation of large-scale genotyping technologies. Expand
Predicting biogeographical ancestry in admixed individuals – values and limitations of using uniparental and autosomal markers
TLDR
The ability to detect biogeographical ancestry in 85 individuals from self-declared Asian and European admixed families is assessed using a set of uniparental (Y and mitochondrial DNA) and autosomal single nucleotide polymorphisms, specifically selected to distinguish between these twoBiogeographical ancestries. Expand
Assessing individual interethnic admixture and population substructure using a 48–insertion‐deletion (INSEL) ancestry‐informative marker (AIM) panel
TLDR
The ability to accurately infer interethnic admixtures highlights the usefulness of this marker set for assessing population substructure in association studies, particularly those conducted in Brazilian and other Latin American populations sharing trihybrid ancestry patterns. Expand
Analysis of genetic ancestry in the admixed Brazilian population from Rio de Janeiro using 46 autosomal ancestry-informative indel markers
TLDR
The inter-ethnic admixture landscape of Rio de Janeiro captured by autosomal AIM-Indels is in agreement with historical records and similar to that expected from uniparental mtDNA and Y-chromosome information. Expand
Analyses of a set of 128 ancestry informative single-nucleotide polymorphisms in a global set of 119 population samples
TLDR
The simultaneous importance of the specific set of population samples and their relative sample sizes in the use of the structure program to determine which groups cluster together and consequently influence the ability of a marker panel to infer ancestry is demonstrated. Expand
A Panel of Ancestry Informative Markers for the Complex Five-Way Admixed South African Coloured Population
TLDR
It is shown that a panel of 96 AIMs can be used to assess ancestry proportions and to adjust for the confounding effect of the complex five-way admixture that occurred in the South African Coloured population. Expand
Developing a novel panel of genome-wide ancestry informative markers for bio-geographical ancestry estimates.
TLDR
A genome-wide scan for SNPs within genes that are related to physical and biological traits was performed and a panel of ancestry-informative markers provided accurate estimates of individual ancestry proportions with balanced discriminatory power among the three continental ancestries: Africans, Europeans, and East Asians. Expand
An Ancestry Informative Marker Set Which Recapitulates the Known Fine Structure of Populations in South Asia
TLDR
Infocalc-2,000 appeared as the most informative South Asian AIMs panel that recapitulated the finer structure within South Asian genomes with high degree of sensitivity and precision, whereas a negative control with an equivalent number of randomly selected markers when used to interrogate the South Asian populations, failed to do so.

Massively parallel sequencing of 165 ancestry-informative SNPs and forensic biogeographical ancestry inference in three southern Chinese Sinitic/Tai-Kadai populations
TLDR
Ancestry composition and multiple phylogenetic analysis demonstrated that the geographically isolated Qiongzhong Hlai harbored a close phylogenetic relationship with Austronesian speakers and possessed a homogenous Tai-Kadai-dominant ancestry, which could be used as the ancestral source proxy in population history reconstruction ofTai-KADai-speaking populations and as one of the representatives for forensic database establishment.

A genomewide single-nucleotide-polymorphism panel with high ancestry information for African American admixture mapping.
TLDR
Simulations show that this more informative panel of SNP ancestry-informative markers improves power for admixture mapping in African Americans when ethnicity risk ratios are modest, and is particularly important in the application of admixtures mapping in complex genetic diseases. Expand

TLDR
Overall, the study demonstrates that AIMs can provide a useful adjunct to forensic medicine, pharmacogenomics and disease studies in which major ancestry or ethnic affiliation might be linked to specific outcomes. Expand

This work indicates that it is possible to estimate the individual ancestry of a person based on DNA analysis with a reasonable number of well-defined genetic markers, as well as applying two methods of admixture mapping to test for the effects of three candidate genes. Expand

This map provides a practical and powerful tool, which is freely available without restriction, for screening for disease genes in African American patient cohorts, and is especially appropriate for those diseases that differ in incidence between the parental African and European populations.

Estimating African American admixture proportions by use of population-specific alleles.
TLDR
Significant nonrandom association between two markers located 22 cM apart (FY-null and AT3) is detected, most likely due to admixture linkage disequilibrium created in the interbreeding of the two parental populations, emphasize the importance of admixed populations as a useful resource for mapping traits with different prevalence in two parental population.

TLDR
DNA-pooling technique was used to screen microsatellite and diallelic insertion/deletion markers for allele-frequency differences between putative representatives of the parental populations of the admixed Mexican American (MA) and African American (AA) populations, suggesting that EDMs with large interpopulation and small intrapopulation differences can be readily identified for MALD studies in both AA and MA populations.
