Ancestry-related assortative mating in Latino populations
TLDR
The current observed variances of ancestry is used to infer even stronger patterns of spouse ancestry correlation in previous generations, and has impacted on the genomic structure in Latino populations to the current day. Expand
Distribution of Hemoglobin Phenotypes in Four Different Districts of Porto Velho, Rondônia, Brazil
TLDR
The aim of this study is to assess the frequency of alleles in the hemoglobin system, mainly alleles HB*A, *S, and *E, which do not significantly differ from frequencies found in other Brazilian regions. Expand
Glutathione S-Transferase M1 and T1 Polymorphisms in Brazilian African Descendants
TLDR
The genotype frequency distribution of the GSTM1 and GSTT1 null alleles in an urban sample from the Federal District and in four semi-isolated African-descended populations are analyzed, suggesting an important African and European contribution. Expand
Polymorphisms in regulatory regions of Cyclooxygenase-2 gene and breast cancer risk in Brazilians: a case-control study
TLDR
Evaluating the association between single-nucleotide polymorphisms in the COX-2 gene (PTGS2) and the occurrence of breast cancer among Brazilian women indicates no strong association between the four most frequent PTGS2 SNPs and the risk of Breast cancer. Expand
Reliability of race assessment based on the race of the ascendants: a cross-sectional study
TLDR
The assessment of race based on the race of ascendants showed reasonable agreement with the ascertainment done by trained interviewers and with the self-report of race, since it is less time-consuming than the evaluation by interviewers. Expand
Clusters of genetic diseases in Brazil
TLDR
A database of isolated communities (CENISO) with high prevalence of genetic disorders or congenital anomalies in Brazil using a systematic literature review and a “rumor strategy” based on anecdotal accounts is presented. Expand
Type 2 diabetes-associated genetic variants of FTO, LEPR, PPARg, and TCF7L2 in gestational diabetes in a Brazilian population.
TLDR
The studied polymorphisms were not associated with GDM in a Brazilian population and did not show significant differences between the groups (P > 0.05). Expand
The emergence of human population genetics and narratives about the formation of the Brazilian nation (1950-1960).
TLDR
It is argued that human population genetics was conditioned by nationalist concerns that had long marked Brazilian history, and was closely associated with global, post-World War II socio-political contexts, especially with regards to modernization projects and growing scientific internationalization. Expand
Gender and population history: sex bias revealed by studying genetic admixture of Ngazidja population (Comoro Archipelago).
TLDR
Admixture rates estimated from autosomal KIR gene markers point also to an unexpected elevated Austronesian contribution and results from mtDNA and Y chromosome markers point to an important sex-bias in the admixture event. Expand
Genetic Admixture in Brazilians Exposed to Infection with Leishmania chagasi
TLDR
Using microsatellite markers, it is examined whether admixture of the population as a whole, or markers likely inherited from a distinct ethnic background, differed between individuals with VL, individuals with an asymptomatic infection, or individuals with no infection, and found no apparent significant difference among the three clinical phenotype groups.
