LAMP 2.5 / LAMP-LD 1.1 – Estimate Locus Specific Ancestry

LAMP 2.5 / LAMP-LD 1.1


LAMP (Local Ancestry in adMixed Populations) is a software for the inference of locus-specific ancestry in recently admixed populations. LAMP computes the ancestry structure for overlapping windows of contiguous SNPs and combines the results with a majority vote.


LAMP-LD is a software package for the inference of locus-specific ancestry in recently admixed populations.
