This study compares genetic polymorphisms at the D1S80 and HLA‐DQA1 loci in three Mexican Mestizo populations from three large states (Nuevo León, Jalisco, and the Federal District). Allele frequency distributions are relatively homogenous in the three samples; only the Federal District population shows minor differences of the HLA‐DQA1 allele frequencies compared with the other two. In terms of genetic composition, these Mestizo populations show evidence of admixture with predominantly Spanish… 

Genetic polymorphism study at D1S80 VNTR in four major tribal populations (Garo, Santal, Khasia and Monipuri) of Bangladesh -

Comparison of D1S80 allelic frequency distribution among seventy-six different populations placed the tribal populations along with the mainstream mixed Bangladeshis, Tamils and mixed Panjabi Indians in a clade separated from the rest.

Maximum likelihood estimates of admixture in northeastern Mexico using 13 short tandem repeat loci

Tetrameric short tandem repeat (STR) polymorphisms are widely used in population genetics, molecular evolution, gene mapping and linkage analysis, paternity tests, forensic analysis, and medical

Admixture analysis of a rural population of the state of Guerrero, Mexico.

The results show that the population of Tlapa in Guerrero, Mexico, has experienced little admixture with Europeans and/or West Africans and that heterogeneity is a major characteristic of Mexican populations and should not be disregarded when designing epidemiological studies of Mexican and Mexican American populations.

Genetic admixture, relatedness, and structure patterns among Mexican populations revealed by the Y-chromosome.

Y-linked markers are suitable loci to analyze genetic diversity of human populations, offering knowledge of medical, forensic, and anthropological interest, and adding to the analysis data of Mexican Mestizos and Amerindians, and relevant worldwide populations.

HLA-DQB1, -DQA1, -DRB1 linkage disequilibrium and haplotype diversity in a Mestizo population from Guadalajara, Mexico.

Three-locus genotype data from all family members were used to infer haplotypes in 54 unrelated individuals of the sample, from which estimate of segregating haplotype frequencies and linkage disequilibrium (LD) between loci were computed.

Analysis of genomic diversity in Mexican Mestizo populations to develop genomic medicine in Mexico

The notion that a haplotype map of the Mexican Mestizo population can reduce the number of tag SNPs required to characterize common genetic variation in this population is supported.

Y-chromosome diversity in Native Mexicans reveals continental transition of genetic structure in the Americas.

The Y-chromosome genetic diversity of 197 Native Mexicans from 11 populations and 1,044 individuals from 44 Native American populations is described after combining with publicly available data to point toward a complex genetic makeup of Native Mexicans whose maternal and paternal lineages reveal different narratives of their population history.

Interethnic relationships of CYP2D6 variants in native and Mestizo populations sharing the same ecosystem.

Sharing of CYP2D6 alleles in both Chiapanecan populations suggests an ongoing gene-flow, and principal component analyses demonstrated clustering of both Mestizo populations.



Variation in the gene frequencies of three generations of humans from Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico.

Gene frequencies of the three generations from MMA are intermediate to those of the ancestral populations, indicating that they are Mestizo but with a genetic structure different from Mestizos of Saltillo and Tlaxcala.

Genetic distances for ABO and Rh(D) blood groups in the state of Nuevo León, Mexico.

The populations thought descended from the immigrants that colonized northeastern Mexico four centuries ago were shown to have received a high genetic contribution from Spanish, a lesser contribution from French, German and Portuguese, and a low contribution from Western Europeans.

Gene diversity and estimation of genetic admixture among Mexican-Americans of Starr County, Texas.

The results suggest genetic homogeneity of the Mexican-Americans of Starr County, Texas, and point towards the utility of this population for genetic and epidemiological studies.

The magnitude and origin of European-American admixture in the Gila River Indian Community of Arizona: a union of genetics and demography.

It is concluded that, despite the severe assumptions of the mathematical methods, accurate, reliable estimates of genetic admixture are possible from allele and haplotype frequencies, even when there is little demographic information for the population.

Genetic variation in Arizona Mexican Americans: estimation and interpretation of admixture proportions.

New genetic typings on 730 Arizona Mexican Americans for the Hla-A, HLA-B, ABO, Rh, MNSs, Duffy, Kidd, and Kell loci are presented here and they are used to estimate ancestral contributions.

Genetic structure of the populations migrating from San Luis Potosi and Zacatecas to Nuevo León in Mexico.

The genetic distance analysis indicates that SLP and ZAC are similar to the MMA, irrespective of birthplace and generation, andGene diversity analysis suggests that more than 96% of the total gene diversity (HT) can be attributed to individual variation within the population.

Navajo, Pueblo, and Sioux population data on the Loci HLA-DQA1, LDLR, GYPA, HBGG, D7S8, Gc, and D1S80.

The data demonstrate that estimates of multiple locus profile frequencies can be obtained from the Native American databases for identity testing purposes using the product rule under the assumption of independence.

Genetic variation by birth cohorts in Mexican Americans of Starr County, Texas

It is suggested that the Mexican Americans of Starr County, Texas, classified by gender, birthplace, and age, are not genetically distinguishable and are similar to the Mexican populations of the State of Nuevo León.

Gene frequencies and admixture estimates in a Mexico City population.

The present study reveals a higher proportion of Indian genes in the Mexico City population than estimated in previous publications.
