Table 1 Accuracy of reAdmix ancestry predictions for different mixture scenarios from European populations.

From: Differential Evolution approach to detect recent admixture

Scenario Prior Correct position(%) At least one correctly predicted origin (%) Correct populations (%) Average distance to correct population, km

  1 pop. 100 75 31 8
  equal weights 100 81 26 251

  1. Percentage of mixed ancestral population is given in the "Scenario" column. "Correct position" is defined as a prediction within 320 km of reported location. "Correct populations" is defined as a geographically correct prediction where the method correctly discriminated between neighboring populations.
