Sample Data

  Sample Size: 1463
  Test date: 2017
  Method(s): NGS
  Source: Other
  Loci typed: A, B, C, DQB1, DRB1
  Additional notes: Allele frequencies were calculated by direct count and haplotype frequencies were determined by the open-source software Hapl-o-Mat. It was also used to properly merge allele coding and calculating haplotype frequencies with an EM algorithm, using a ε=10e-7 threshold to stop the algorithm. Haplotype frequencies below 10e-6 were not reported. The Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (HWE) test was assessed using five repetitions in the Arlequin software package. Input parameters for HWE test were 10e6 Markov chain steps and 10e5 dememorization steps.

  Publication details: Colombia is a South American country with an approximate population of 41.5 million people according to the latest official report published in 2005 [1] (a national census is currently being performed).Colombian population is divided into four main groups of heritage: Mestizo or nonindigenous (35 million, 84.16%), Indigenous (1.4 million, 3.36%), Afro-colombian (4.3 million, 10.40%) and Romani (c.a. 5000, 0.01%). The most spoken language in Colombia is Spanish, however there are at least 87 different ethnic groups (including three Afro-colombian and one Romani) which represent 70 linguistic groups. Several genetic composition studies show that Colombian population has an European, Native American and African ancestry which changes according to the geographic location. This admixture results from the Spanish colonization and African slave trade. Bogot is located at the central area of the country and is the capital of Colombia. People living in Bogot belong to different ethnic groups.
