Table 1 Comparison of results from HAPMIX and StepPCO

From: Dating the age of admixture via wavelet transform analysis of genome-wide data

Population Estimated percent European ancestry from HAPMIX Estimated percent European ancestry from StepPCO Estimated time since admixture (in gens ago) from HAPMIX Estimated time since admixture (in gens ago) from StepPCO
Mandenka 2% 2% 120 121
Mozabite 77% 84% 100 131
Bedouin 91% 91% 90 83
Palestinian 93% 92% 75 72
Druze 97% 96% 60 90
  1. We have removed one outlier individual from the Mandenka population. Among the Bedouins, 24 out of 45 individuals have a higher proportion of European-related ancestry (Figure S7 in Additional file 1). If these individuals are removed from the analysis, the estimate for the admixture time in the Bedouins changes to 97 generations ago. Estimated percent European ancestry was calculated by using the two parental populations and an admixed group to find the PC1 axis.
