Table 2 Accuracy of reAdmix ancestry predictions for different mixture scenarios from European populations with error term, ϵ, to simulate variability of admixture proportions within populations.

From: Differential Evolution approach to detect recent admixture

  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.
