Enhanced Methods for Local Ancestry Assignment in Sequenced Admixed Individuals

sCSVs allow for calling the sub-continental population of a haplotype.

Randomly drawn segments of haplotypes from known populations can be accurately assigned to the population of origin. Accuracy for each population is significantly correlated with the number of reference haplotypes for that population (r = 0.65, p-value = 0.042). The highest accuracies are seen in populations that are more isolated from other populations in their continents.
