PROXYANC

:: DESCRIPTION

PROXYANC implements an approach to select the best proxy ancestral populations for admixed populations. It searches for the best combination of reference populations that can minimize the genetic distance between the admixed population and all possible synthetic populations, consisting of a linear combination from reference populations.
