This study aims at performing a systematic review and meta‐analysis with the studies of genetic admixture inference of Brazilian population and to compare these results with the genetic admixture levels in other Latin American countries. 
The Genetic Diversity of the Americas.
TLDR
The demographic history of the region is summarized, some social factors that affected historical admixture are highlighted, and major patterns of ancestry across the Western Hemisphere are reviewed based on genetic data.
The screening of rare blood donors in a highly admixed population: A new approach for Holley and Diego genotyping and impact of genomic and self‐reported ancestry
TLDR
Strategies for genotyping DO*HY (Dombrock system) and DI*A/DI*B (Diego system) alleles and the impact of genomic and self‐declared ancestry on rare donor screening in admixed populations are developed.
Demographic history differences between Hispanics and Brazilians imprint haplotype features
TLDR
Latino populations present highly divergent haplotype characteristics that impact genetic architecture and underlie complex phenotypes, and it is found that linkage disequilibrium decay relates to the amount of American and African ancestry.
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.
Genomic ancestry and glycemic control in adolescents with type 1 diabetes: A multicenter study in Brazil
TLDR
To determine the influence of genomic ancestry (GA) and self‐reportedcolor‐race (SRCR) on glycemic control in adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D) in an admixed population, a genome-wide association study is conducted.
Gene Variants Associated With Venous Thrombosis: A Replication Study in a Brazilian Multicentre Study
TLDR
A Brazilian multicenter case-control study with adequate sample power, high genetic variability though no stratification between groups, showed no replication of SNPs associated with VTE, emphasizing the influence of the population genetic structure in association studies.
Distribution of local ancestry and evidence of adaptation in admixed populations
TLDR
A decreased proportion of European ancestry together with an excess of Native-American ancestry on chromosome 8p23.1 points to a selection event after admixture, which is still not entirely understood in recent admixture events.
Genetic characterization of 32 X-InDels in a population sample from São Paulo State (Brazil)
TLDR
A population sample of 500 unrelated individuals born in São Paulo State was characterized for 32 X-InDel markers and showed lower genetic distances to the Colombian admixed and European populations than to Native American, Asian, or African populations.

Genomic ancestry of rural African‐derived populations from Southeastern Brazil
TLDR
The aim of the study was to contribute to understanding the origins of these populations, through admixture studies.
Interethnic admixture and the evolution of Latin American populations
TLDR
A systematic review of the data from molecular autosomal assessments of the ethnic/continental ancestries for 24 Latin American countries or territories provides a general picture of the present constitution of these populations.
Historical genetics: Spatiotemporal analysis of the formation of the Brazilian population
TLDR
The estimated relative proportions of the above‐indicated continental contributions showed intermediate values between those obtained with uniparental (mtDNA, Y‐chromosome) data, and a higher percentage of European heritage as compared to previous autosome results.
Pharmacogenomic Diversity among Brazilians: Influence of Ancestry, Self-Reported Color, and Geographical Origin
TLDR
Major PGx implications are: first, extrapolation of data from relatively well-defined ethnic groups is clearly not applicable to the majority of Brazilians; second, the frequency distribution of polymorphisms in several pharmacogenes of clinical relevance varies continuously among Brazilians and is not captured by race/Color self-identification.
Y‐chromosome genetic variation in Rio De Janeiro population
TLDR
The vast majority of the present Rio de Janeiro male gene pool is of European extraction, while the original Amerindian lineages are residual and much less frequent than the sub‐Saharan component resulting from the slave trade.
Brazilian urban population genetic structure reveals a high degree of admixture
TLDR
The data support the notion that the Brazilian population, due to its high degree of admixture, can provide a valuable resource for strategies aiming at using admixture as a tool for mapping complex traits in humans.
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.
Revisiting the Genetic Ancestry of Brazilians Using Autosomal AIM-Indels
TLDR
This study performed an enhanced reassessment of the genetic ancestry of ~1,300 Brazilians characterised for 46 autosomal Ancestry Informative Markers (AIMs), establishing the basis for the effective application of an autosomal AIM panel in forensic casework and clinical association studies within the highly admixed Brazilian populations.
Genetic composition of Brazilian population samples based on a set of twenty‐eight ancestry informative SNPs
TLDR
Analysis of information content of 28 ancestry‐informative SNPs into multiplexed panels using three parental population sources to infer the genetic admixture in an urban sample of the five Brazilian geopolitical regions suggested little genetic differentiation between the South and the remaining regions.
