[…] among populations within the b. tabaci species complex. a principal component analysis (pca), based on allelic data across all 71 whitefly samples was conducted using the snprelate r package []. admixture (v.1.3.0 []) was performed on the whole dataset to estimate the genetic ancestry of each sample. this tool is based on a maximum likelihood approach which provides an estimate of the number […]

[…] (). we compared pairwise fst estimates based on our panel of snps to pairwise estimates based on whole genome sequences ()., semi-supervised and unsupervised clustering analyses were performed using admixture version 1.22 (). analyses were performed in triplicate with different starting seeds and five-fold cross-validation. standard errors were estimated using 200 bootstrap replicates.

[…] matrix was then used to build a neighbor-joining tree using the ape package in r (). the phylogenetic tree in was rendered using figtree v1.4.2 (, we ran admixture () both on the masked and unmasked datasets using default parameters for k = 2 to k = 14 and diploid genotype calls for both the ancient genome and the modern reference populations.

[…] first, we removed individuals that have been labeled as related (), then we used the pipeline reported in gazal et al. () to exclude individuals having up to third-degree relationships. next, we ran admixture () to identify and filter out individuals exhibiting recent population admixture. using the plink software (), we selected only the autosomal biallelic snps with minor allele frequency […]

[…] and mitochondria [, ], the coyote y-chromosome is divergent from the grey wolf-dog clade. instead, the coyote shares a clade with the red wolf, a group known to contain a high amount of coyote admixture [, ]. the single male great lakes wolf (a sample from minnesota [] carries a strikingly divergent y-chromosome, with 199 derived alleles (16% of the total snvs) unique […]

[…] 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, […]

[…] 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, […]

[…] a single line of ancestry (uniparental markers) or focusing on the autosomal regions and the x chromosome, which reveal different ancestral components. there is great interest in identifying admixture to show continental ancestry in genetically divergent populations [–]. these methods have been applied to african-american populations [–](zhu et al. 2005, smith et al. 2004, tian et al.

[…] 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., verifybamid was used to infer whether or not the reads are contaminated across the sample swaps. all the 18 affected cases specifically […]
