Analysis of the canid Y chromosome phylogeny using short read sequencing data reveals the presence of distinct haplogroups among Neolithic European dogs

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5946424
PMID: 29747566
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4749-z

[…] sents global dog genetic diversity than collections of breed dogs, and the male dogs (n = 104) from our study were subsequently projected onto the resulting components. The proportion of wolf and dog admixture for each dog or wolf sample was estimated using the program ADMIXTURE []. As input, we used autosomal genotypes from the whole genome short-read data called by GATK HaplotypeCaller. Variant […]


Nonparametric approaches for population structure analysis

Hum Genomics
PMCID: 5944014
PMID: 29743099
DOI: 10.1186/s40246-018-0156-4

[…] imilar to STRUCTURE, PARTITION [], BAPS/BAPS2 [, ], and GENELAND [] take the same modeling approach, which is based on an MCMC algorithm, to sample the posterior distribution. Moreover, FRAPPE [] and ADMIXTURE [, ] adopt the same modeling approach but rely on maximizing the likelihood using an expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm instead of sampling the posterior distribution. In contrast, L-PO […]


Genome wide scan reveals population stratification and footprints of recent selection in Nelore cattle

PMCID: 5930444
PMID: 29720080
DOI: 10.1186/s12711-018-0381-2

[…] unction from the “stats” package in R software []. The genomic distance between two individuals was estimated as 1 minus the proportion of identical by state (IBS) alleles that they share. Second, an admixture analysis was performed to measure the proportion of individual ancestry from different numbers of hypothetical ancestral populations, using the ADMIXTURE software (version 1.04) []. Thus, an […]


Mind the gut: genomic insights to population divergence and gut microbial composition of two marine keystone species

PMCID: 5932900
PMID: 29720271
DOI: 10.1186/s40168-018-0467-7

[…] as 1 and 3 were plotted using the Perl script Ploteig (Eigensoft package). In order to infer ancestry among sand lances in various areas, we used the model-based approach implemented in the software Admixture v.1.3.0 []. Admixture estimations were performed for values of K ranging from 2 to 14. Convergence was assumed when the log-likelihood difference among iterations was < 10−4. We employed the […]


Population structure in Argentina

PLoS One
PMCID: 5929549
PMID: 29715266
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0196325
call_split See protocol

[…] We used block relaxation algorithm as implemented in ADMIXTURE [] to estimate ancestry proportions for each individual given K ancestral populations, where K was incremented from 3 to 10. We used the default setting (folds = 5) to perform ADMIXTURE’s cr […]


Whole exome sequencing reveals rare variants linked to congenital pouch colon

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5923232
PMID: 29703930
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24967-y

[…] from all the merged samples. The 1000 genomes dataset containing the datasets was considered as a summarized worldwide population. In order to estimate individual ancestries, we used an unsupervised ADMIXTURE (Alexander et al. 2009) to project the samples. […]
