Table 3 Improving probability of detecting historic admixture

From: Calculating expected DNA remnants from ancient founding events in human population genetics

Genetic Parameters Experimental Design
• Large Migrant Population • Identify informative migrant alleles
• Small Native Population • Test large number of loci
• Low mutation rate at loci of interest • Large sample size for each population
• Fewer generations since admixture event • Establish methods for detecting rare alleles
  • Collaborative approach (Archeology, Anthropology, Linguistics)
