  • Publication number: 20220223233
    Abstract: Estimating parental contribution of ancestry includes: obtaining a set of ancestry assignment data associated with an individual's genotype data, at least some of the ancestry assignment data indicating that one or more segments of the individual's genotype data is deemed to be associated with a specific ancestry; determining whether in the individual's genotype data there is at least one confirmed region of overlapping ancestry assignment associated with the specific ancestry; in the event that it is determined that there is at least one confirmed region of overlapping ancestry assignment associated with the specific ancestry: specifying that parental contribution of the specific ancestry is made by both parents of the individual; in the event that it is determined that there is no confirmed region of overlapping ancestry assignment associated with the specific ancestry: statistically determining whether the parental contribution to the specific ancestry is made by only one parent of the individual or by bot

  • Publication number: 20170329902
    Abstract: Admixture generation determination includes: obtaining ancestry assignment information associated with an individual's genotype data, the ancestry assignment information at least indicating that a portion of the individual's genotype data is deemed to be associated with a specific ancestry; determining the individual's genetic ancestry summary data corresponding to the specific ancestry; estimating an admixture generation associated with the specific ancestry, the admixture generation indicating a most recent generation or a most recent generation range from which the individual has at least one non-admixed ancestor of the specific ancestry, the estimation including a maximum likelihood determination based at least in part on the individual's genetic ancestry summary data and a recombination model; and outputting the estimated admixture generation.
