Table 3 Accuracy of reAdmix ancestry reconstruction for different mixture scenarios from European and Native American populations.

From: Differential Evolution approach to detect recent admixture

Scenario Condition Correct position(%) At least one correctly predicted origin (%) Correct populations (%) Average distance to correct population, km
50 × 50 none 98 89 30 329
  1 pop. 99 87 36 2
  equal weights 99 88 36 135
50 × 25 × 25 none 86 81 18 1390
  1 pop. 94 72 4 362
25 × 25 × 25 × 25 none 86 85 0 1484
  1 pop. 90 71 0 759
  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.
