Proportions of genetic ancestry. a Genome-wide proportion of ancestry for each landrace population. Colors represent the population of origin from the wild (Unassigned sites are not considered). The barplot on the far right (inside a black box) represents the average genome-wide ancestry among all four landrace populations, used also as a base line for panel b (average contribution). b Excess or deficit of ancestry (Δ ancestry) for the Central European and Asian landrace populations. Δ ancestry is measured as the deviation from the average contribution of each wild population at the genome-wide level (that is, how many times more/less of that ancestry is observed at each genomic segment with respect to genome-wide ancestry proportion) (black dashed line). Colors correspond to the five populations identified in wild barley (Additional file 5). Positive values indicate X times of excess ancestry and negative values a deficit of ancestry with respect to the genome-wide average ancestry of a particular wild population. The dotted horizontal line indicates the 98th percentile cutoff from the distribution of excess or deficit of each wild population across all genomic segments at each landrace population
