  • 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… CONTINUE READING
