Geographic Patterns of Genome Admixture in Latin American Mestizos

Figure 2

Ancestry Proportions in 13 Mestizo Populations.

For each population, proportions estimated with autosomal [-A] and X-chromosome [-X] markers are color-coded on separate bars. The populations have been ordered left to right based on decreasing autosomal European ancestry. The values of these ancestry estimates and their associated standard errors are shown in Table S2. Ancestry was estimated by grouping data for populations sampled in Europe, Africa and Native Americans into three continental population samples. Data for these populations was obtained from the HGDP-CEPH human genome diversity panel database (v 1.0) ( and from Wang et al. (2007)[23].
