SPAMIX citations


Toward high resolution population genomics using archaeological samples

PMCID: 4991838
PMID: 27436340
DOI: 10.1093/dnares/dsw029

[…] n be obtained using ‘local ancestry’ tools (HAPMIX, or SABER, LAMP, and MULTIMIX and others) which allow inference of ‘local ancestry’ instead of the ‘global ancestry’ (that can be inferred with PCA, SPAMIX, GPS, ADMIXTURE, STRUCTURE, reAdmix) and their usage depends on the complexity of the data set, the expected mixture levels, and the available phenotypic data. For instance, if the phenotype is […]


Differential Evolution approach to detect recent admixture

BMC Genomics

PMID: 26111206
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-16-S8-S9

[…] respectively) and are even less for non-Europeans [], suggesting their limitation for biogeographic applications [,,]. Note, that the country of origin does not necessarily correlate with ethnicity. SPAMIX [] is reported to have an accuracy of 550Km for two-ancestral admixtures, which is impressive but insufficient. Algorithms like mSpectrum [], HAPMIX [] and LAMP [] achieve good accuracy at a co […]
