Aiming to determine their ancestry diagnostic potential, we selected two sets of nuclear deletion/insertion polymorphisms (DIPs), including 30 located on autosomal chromosomes and 33 on the X chromosome. We analysed over 200 unrelated Argentinean individuals living in urban areas of Argentina. As in most American countries, the extant Argentinean population is the result of tricontinental genetic admixture. The peopling process within the continent was characterised by mating bias involving…

Uveitis Patterns and Severity: An Epidemiologic Study from a Tertiary Care Private Referral Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The multi-racial Argentinian population with specific Native American aboriginal ancestry might contribute to certain forms of posterior uveitis and their response to treatment.


Inferring Continental Ancestry of Argentineans from Autosomal, Y‐Chromosomal and Mitochondrial DNA
The results demonstrate that European, Native American and African ancestry components were detectable in the contemporary Argentineans, the amounts depending on the genetic system applied, exhibiting large inter‐individual heterogeneity.
High interpopulation homogeneity in Central Argentina as assessed by Ancestry Informative Markers (AIMs)
The AIM estimates indicated a greater influence of the Native American ancestry as compared to previous studies in the same or other Argentinean regions, but smaller than that observed with the mtDNA tests.
Genetic variation in populations from central Argentina based on mitochondrial and Y chromosome DNA evidence
The analysis of paternal lineages showed also homogeneous distribution of the variation together with a drastic reduction of the native male population, probably as result of a recent common origin and sustained gene flow.
X-chromosome lineages and the settlement of the Americas.
Although genetic drift appears to have played a greater role in the genetic differentiation of Native Americans than in the latitudinally distributed Eurasians, a signal of a differentiated ancestry of southern and northern populations that cannot be simply explained by the serial southward dilution of genetic diversity is observed.
Elevated male European and female African contributions to the genomes of African American individuals
There is a threefold higher European male contribution compared with European females to the genomes of African American individuals meaning that admixture-based gene discovery will have the most power for the autosomes and will be more limited for X chromosome analysis.
Heterogeneity in Genetic Admixture across Different Regions of Argentina
The results demonstrate the range of variation in genetic ancestry among Argentine individuals from different regions in the country, highlighting the importance of taking this variation into account in genetic association and admixture mapping studies in this population.
Characterization of Admixture in an Urban Sample from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Using Uniparentally and Biparentally Inherited Genetic Markers
Most of the individuals from La Plata with a native American mtDNA haplogroup or the DYS199*T native American allele show a genetic contribution at the autosomal level that can be traced primarily to Europe.
Assessing interethnic admixture using an X‐linked insertion‐deletion multiplex
The accuracy for assessing interethnic admixture, and the high differentiation between African, European, and Native American populations, demonstrates the suitability of this INDEL set to measure ancestry proportions in three‐hybrid populations, as it is the case of Latin American populations.
Fine-scale genomic analyses of admixed individuals reveal unrecognized genetic ancestry components in Argentina
Genotyping data for 87 admixed individuals throughout Argentina was generated and data from the literature was re-analyzed to shed light on the origins of these three continental ancestry components in Argentinean populations nowadays.
