OBJECTIVES In this study, we aimed to identify ancestry informative haplotypes and make interethnic admixture estimates using X-chromosome markers. METHODS A significant sample (461 individuals) of European, African, and Native American populations was analyzed, and four linkage groups were identified. The data obtained were used to describe the ancestral contribution of populations from four different geographical regions of Brazil (745 individuals).
