Admixture 1.23 – Maximum Likelihood Estimation of Individual Ancestry based on Multilocus SNP Genotypes

Admixture 1.23

:: DESCRIPTION

ADMIXTURE is a software tool for maximum likelihood estimation of individual ancestries from multilocus SNP genotype datasets. It uses the same statistical model as STRUCTURE but calculates estimates much more rapidly using a fast numerical optimization algorithm.
