The relative contribution of Europeans, Africans, and Amerindians to the gene pool of two Uruguayan populations (Montevideo and Tacuarembó) was estimated using several approaches. For Montevideo 8 genetic systems were considered, and for Tacuarembó 18 systems were used. A preliminary investigation of the most probable parental groups, using genetic distances, yielded four combinations of European populations, four combinations of African populations, and five combinations of Amerindian… CONTINUE READING
