A Quantitative Comparison of the Similarity between Genes and Geography in Worldwide Human Populations

Figure 1

Procrustes analysis of genetic and geographic coordinates of worldwide populations.

(A) Geographic coordinates of 53 populations. (B) Procrustes-transformed PCA plot of genetic variation. The Procrustes analysis is based on the Gall-Peters projected coordinates of geographic locations and PC1-PC2 coordinates of 938 individuals. The figures are plotted according to the Gall-Peters projection. PC1 and PC2 are indicated by dotted lines, crossing over the centroid of all individuals. PC1 and PC2 account for 6.22% and 4.72% of the total variance, respectively. The Procrustes similarity is (). The rotation angle of the PCA map is .
