    • A GWAS in Latin Americans highlights the convergent evolution of lighter skin pigmentation in Eurasia 

      Adhikari, Kaustubh; Mendoza-Revilla, Javier; Sohail, Anood; Fuentes Guajardo, Macarena; Lampert, Jodie; Chacón-Duque, Juan Camilo; Hurtado, Malena; Villegas, Valeria; Granja, Vanessa; Acuña-Alonzo, Victor; Jaramillo, Claudia; Arias, William; Lozano, Rodrigo Barquera; (Nature Publishing Group, 2019)
      We report a genome-wide association scan in >6,000 Latin Americans for pigmentation of skin and eyes. We found eighteen signals of association at twelve genomic regions. These include one novel locus for skin pigmentation ...
    • Admixture in Latin America: Geographic Structure, Phenotypic Diversity and Self-Perception of Ancestry Based on 7,342 Individuals

      The current genetic makeup of Latin America has been shaped by a history of extensive admixture between Africans, Europeans and Native Americans, a process taking place within the context of extensive geographic and social ...
    • A genome-wide association study identifies multiple loci for variation in human ear morphology

      Here we report a genome-wide association study for non-pathological pinna morphology in over 5,000 Latin Americans. We find genome-wide significant association at seven genomic regions affecting: lobe size and attachment, ...
