Ancestry informative SNPs can be useful to estimate individual and population biogeographical ancestry. Brazilian population is characterized by a genetic background of three parental populations (European, African, and Brazilian Native Amerindians) with a wide degree and diverse patterns of admixture. In this work we analyzed the information content of 28 ancestry‐informative SNPs into multiplexed panels using three parental population sources (African, Amerindian, and European) to infer the… 
Ancestral genetic composition of a human population from the Colombian southwest using autosomal AIM-InDels
TLDR
The complex population stratification of the Department of Cauca, Colombia is revealed, which is the result of the genetic admixture of three continental populations.
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.
A rapid screening of ancestry for genetic association studies in an admixed population from Pernambuco, Brazil.
TLDR
A streamlined panel of 12 markers may substitute panels with more markers, while retaining the capacity to control for population substructure and admixture, thereby reducing sample processing time.
Heterogeneity in Genetic Admixture across Different Regions of Argentina
TLDR
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.
Ancestry analysis in rural Brazilian populations of African descent.
A systematic scoping review of the genetic ancestry of the Brazilian population
TLDR
The aim of this study was to overview the genetic ancestry estimates for different Brazilian geographic regions and analyze factors involved in these estimates, indicating that the ancestry estimates are influenced by the type of molecular marker and the sampling method.
Genetic Heterogeneity of Self-Reported Ancestry Groups in an Admixed Brazilian Population
TLDR
Self-reporting of ancestry was not an appropriate methodology to cluster groups in a Brazilian population, due to high variance at the individual level and Ancestry informative markers are more useful for quantitative measurement of biological ancestry.
Development of two multiplex mini-sequencing panels of ancestry informative SNPs for studies in Latin Americans: an application to populations of the State of Minas Gerais (Brazil).
TLDR
Two multiplex panels of AIMs to be genotyped by two mini-sequencing reactions are developed, suitable for investigators of medium-small laboratories to estimate admixture of Latin American populations and were useful to estimate European admixture.
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.

Color and Genomic Ancestry in Brazilians: A Study with Forensic Microsatellites
TLDR
The present investigation based on data from 12 commercially available forensic microsatellites corroborate and validate previous conclusions that in Brazil at the individual level there is significant dissociation of color and genomic ancestry.
Ancestry informative markers in Amerindians from Brazilian Amazon
TLDR
Although capable of differentiating tribes, a neighbor‐joining tree suggests that the AIMs are useless in obtaining reliable reconstructions of the biological relationships and evolutionary history that characterize the villages and tribes studied.
Color and genomic ancestry in Brazilians
TLDR
The data suggest that in Brazil, at an individual level, color, as determined by physical evaluation, is a poor predictor of genomic African ancestry, estimated by molecular markers.
Admixture and Population Stratification in African Caribbean Populations
TLDR
Significant substructure was observed in the islands of Jamaica and St. Thomas but not Barbados, indicating that differences in population substructure exist across these three Caribbean islands, and these differences may have significant ramifications for case‐control studies of complex disease in Caribbean populations.
Comparison of three methods to estimate genetic ancestry and control for stratification in genetic association studies among admixed populations
TLDR
It is demonstrated that approximately 100 ancestry informative markers (AIMs) are required to obtain estimates of ancestry that correlate with correlation coefficients more than 0.9 with the true individual ancestral proportions.
Self-reported skin color, genomic ancestry and the distribution of GST polymorphisms
TLDR
Interethnic admixture is a source of cryptic population structure that may lead to spurious genotype–phenotype associations in pharmacogenetic/-genomic studies and logistic regression modeling of GST polymorphisms shows that admixture must be dealt with as a continuous variable, rather than proportioned in arbitrary subcategories for the convenience of data quantification and analysis.
Heterogeneity of the genome ancestry of individuals classified as White in the State of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
TLDR
The results indicate that Brazilian populations are remarkably heterogeneous; while some present an overwhelming majority of transplanted European genomes, with a complete correspondence between physical appearance and ancestry, others reflect a history of extensive admixture with dissociation between physical appearances and ancestry.
Admixture in Mexico City: implications for admixture mapping of Type 2 diabetes genetic risk factors
TLDR
This work characterized the admixture proportions in a sample of 286 unrelated T2D patients and 275 controls from Mexico City and discussed the implications of the results for admixture mapping studies.
Argentine population genetic structure: large variance in Amerindian contribution.
TLDR
The large variance in admixture proportions in individual Argentine subjects shows that this population is appropriate for future admixture mapping studies and provides a set of informative SNPs that can be used to ascertain or control for this potentially hidden stratification.
Genomic ancestry of a sample population from the state of São Paulo, Brazil
TLDR
Allelic frequencies of eight autosomal short‐tandem repeat (STR) loci were determined in 400 individuals born in the State of São Paulo and revealed that the present population was grouped with Europeans, and separated from African and Amerindian populations.
