Annotation: This project added reference population allele frequencies for 52 population samples to the 73 previously entered, so that there are now allele frequencies publicly available in ALFRED and FROG-kb for a total of 125 population samples.
Abstract: Ancestry inference for a person using a panel of SNPs depends on the variation of frequencies of those SNPs around the world and the amount of reference data available for calculation/comparison. The Kidd Lab panel of 55 AISNPs has been incorporated in commercial kits by both Life Technologies and Illumina for massively parallel sequencing. Therefore, a larger set of reference populations will be useful for researchers using those kits. (Publisher abstract modified)
