Residents' exposure to aboriginal health issues. Survey of family medicine programs in Canada. (1/80)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether Canadian family medicine residency programs currently have objectives, staff, and clinical experiences for adequately exposing residents to aboriginal health issues. DESIGN: A one-page questionnaire was developed to survey the details of teaching about and exposure to aboriginal health issues. SETTING: Family medicine programs in Canada. PARTICIPANTS: All Canadian family medicine program directors in the 18 programs (16 at universities and two satellite programs) were surveyed between October 1997 and March 1998. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Whether programs had teaching objectives for exposing residents to aboriginal health issues, whether they had resource people available, what elective and core experiences in aboriginal health were offered, and what types of experiences were available. RESULTS: Response rate was 100%. No programs had formal, written curriculum objectives for residency training in aboriginal health issues, although some were considering them. Some programs, however, had objectives for specific weekend or day sessions. No programs had a strategy for encouraging enrollment of residents of aboriginal origin. Eleven programs had at least one resource person with experience in aboriginal health issues, and 12 had access to community-based aboriginal groups. Core experiences were all weekend seminars or retreats. Elective experiences in aboriginal health were available in 16 programs, and 11 programs were active on reserves. CONCLUSIONS: Many Canadian family medicine programs give residents some exposure to aboriginal health issues, but most need more expertise and direction on these issues. Some programs have unique approaches to teaching aboriginal health care that could be shared. Formalized objectives derived in collaboration with other family medicine programs and aboriginal groups could substantially improve the quality of education in aboriginal health care in Canada.  (+info)

Thrombolysis in the air. Air-ambulance paramedics flying to remote communities treat patients before hospitalization. (2/80)

PROBLEM ADDRESSED: First Nations* communities in the North have a high prevalence of coronary artery disease and type 2 diabetes and face an increasing incidence of myocardial infarction (MI). Many conditions delay timely administration of thrombolysis, including long times between when patients first experience symptoms and when they present to community nursing stations, delays in air transfers to treating hospitals, uncertainty about when planes are available, and poor flying conditions. OBJECTIVE OF PROGRAM: To develop a program for administration of thrombolysis on the way to hospital by air ambulance paramedics flying to remote communities to provide more rapid thrombolytic therapy to northern patients experiencing acute MIs. COMPONENTS OF PROGRAM: Critical care flight paramedics fly to northern communities from Sioux Lookout, Ont; assess patients; communicate with base hospital physicians; review an exclusion criteria checklist; and administer thrombolytics according to the Sioux Lookout District Health Centre/Base Hospital Policy and Procedure Manual. Patients are then flown to hospitals in Sioux Lookout; Winnipeg, Man; or Thunder Bay, Ont. CONCLUSION: This thrombolysis program is being pilot tested, and further evaluation and development is anticipated.  (+info)

Type 2 diabetes mellitus in Canada's first nations: status of an epidemic in progress. (3/80)

This review provides a status report on the epidemic of type 2 diabetes mellitus that is affecting many of Canada's First Nations. We focus on the published literature, especially reports published in the past 2 decades, and incorporate data from the Aboriginal Peoples Survey and the First Nations and Inuit Regional Health Survey. We look at the extent and magnitude of the problem, the causes and risk factors, primary prevention and screening, clinical care and education, and cultural concepts and traditional knowledge. The epidemic of type 2 diabetes is still on the upswing, with a trend toward earlier age at onset. Genetic-environmental interactions are the likely cause. Scattered intervention projects have been implemented and evaluated, and some show promise. The current health and social repercussions of the disease are considerable, and the long-term outlook remains guarded. A national Aboriginal diabetes strategy is urgently needed.  (+info)

Child hunger in Canada: results of the 1994 National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth. (4/80)

BACKGROUND: In Canada, hunger is believed to be rare. This study examined the prevalence of hunger among Canadian children and the characteristics of, and coping strategies used by, families with children experiencing hunger. METHODS: The data originated from the first wave of data collection for the National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth, conducted in 1994, which included 13,439 randomly selected Canadian families with children aged 11 years or less. The respondents were asked about the child's experience of hunger and consequent use of coping strategies. Sociodemographic and other risk factors for families experiencing hunger, use of food assistance programs and other coping strategies were analyzed by means of multiple logistic regression analysis. RESULTS: Hunger was experienced by 1.2% (206) of the families in the survey, representing 57,000 Canadian families. Single-parent families, families relying on social assistance and off-reserve Aboriginal families were overrepresented among those experiencing hunger. Hunger coexisted with the mother's poor health and activity limitation and poor child health. Parents offset the needs of their children by depriving themselves of food. INTERPRETATION: Physicians may wish to use these demographic characteristics to identify and assist families with children potentially at risk for hunger.  (+info)

Breast cancer screening. First Nations communities in New Brunswick. (5/80)

OBJECTIVE: To determine use of breast cancer screening and barriers to screening among women in First Nations communities (FNCs). DESIGN: Structured, administered survey. SETTING: Five FNCs in New Brunswick. PARTICIPANTS: One hundred thirty-three (96%) of 138 eligible women between the ages of 50 and 69 years. INTERVENTIONS: After project objectives, methods, and expected outcomes were discussed with community health representatives, we administered a 32-item questionnaire on many aspects of breast cancer screening. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Rate of use of mammography and other breast cancer screening methods, and barriers to screening. RESULTS: Some 65% of participants had had mammography screening within the previous 2 years. Having mammography at recommended intervals and clinical breast examinations (CBEs) yearly were significantly associated with having had a physician recommend the procedures (P < .001). A family history of breast cancer increased the odds of having a mammogram 2.6-fold (P < .05, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.03 to 6.54). Rates of screening differed sharply by whether a family physician was physically practising in the community or not (P < .05, odds ratio 2.68, 95% CI 1.14 to 6.29). CONCLUSION: Women in FNCs in one health region in New Brunswick have mammography with the same frequency as off-reserve women. A family physician practising part time in the FNCs was instrumental in encouraging women to participate in breast cancer screening.  (+info)

Markers of access to and quality of primary care for aboriginal people in Ontario, Canada. (6/80)

OBJECTIVES: We evaluated primary care accessibility and quality for Ontario's aboriginal population. METHODS: We compared a defined aboriginal cohort with nonaboriginal populations with analogous geographic isolation and low socioeconomic status. We determined rates of hospitalization for the following indicators of adequacy of primary care: ambulatory care-sensitive (ACS) conditions and utilization of referral care-sensitive (RCS) procedures from administrative databases. RESULTS: ACS hospitalization rates, relative to the general population, were 2.54, 1.50, and 1.14 for the aboriginal population, the geographic control populations, and the socioeconomic control populations, respectively. The relative RCS procedure utilization rates were 0.64, 0.91, and 1.00, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: The increased ACS hospitalization rate and reduced RCS procedure utilization rate suggest that northern Ontario's aboriginal residents have insufficient or ineffective primary care.  (+info)

Integrated environmental impact assessment: a Canadian example. (7/80)

The Canadian federal process for environmental impact assessment (EIA) integrates health, social, and environmental aspects into either a screening, comprehensive study, or a review by a public panel, depending on the expected severity of potential adverse environmental effects. In this example, a Public Review Panel considered a proposed diamond mining project in Canada's northern territories, where 50% of the population are Aboriginals. The Panel specifically instructed the project proposer to determine how to incorporate traditional knowledge into the gathering of baseline information, preparing impact prediction, and planning mitigation and monitoring. Traditional knowledge is defined as the knowledge, innovations and practices of indigenous and/or local communities developed from experience gained over the centuries and adapted to local culture and environment. The mining company was asked to consider in its EIA: health, demographics, social and cultural patterns; services and infrastructure; local, regional and territorial economy; land and resource use; employment, education and training; government; and other matters. Cooperative efforts between government, industry and the community led to a project that coordinated the concerns of all interested stakeholders and the needs of present and future generations, thereby meeting the goals of sustainable development. The mitigation measures that were implemented take into account: income and social status, social support networks, education, employment and working conditions, physical environments, personal health practices and coping skills, and health services.  (+info)

Use of traditional Mi'kmaq medicine among patients at a First Nations community health centre. (8/80)

INTRODUCTION: The provision of complete, effective, and culturally sensitive health care to First Nations communities requires a familiarity with and respect for patients' healing beliefs and practices. PURPOSE: This study addresses one aspect of cross-cultural care by attempting to understand the use of Mi'kmaq medicine among patients at a community health centre and their attitudes toward both Mi'kmaq and Western medicine. METHODS: A questionnaire was completed by 100 patients (14 men, 86 women) at the clinic. The majority (66%) of respondents had used Mi'kmaq medicine, and 92.4% of these respondents had not discussed this with their physician. Of those who had used Mi'kmaq medicine, 24.3% use it as first-line treatment when they are ill, and 31.8% believe that Mi'kmaq medicine is better overall than Western. Even among patients who have not used Mi'kmaq medicine, 5.9% believe that it is more effective than Western medicine in treating illness. CONCLUSION: These results have implications for the delivery of health care to First Nations patients, especially in terms of understanding patients' health care values and in meeting the need to provide effective cross-cultural care.  (+info)

In 1610, Chief Membertou concluded their first alliance with Europeans, a concordat with the French Jesuits that affirmed the right of Mikmaq to choose Catholicism, Mikmaq tradition, or both. Henri Membertou (died September 18, 1611) was the sakmow (Grand Chief) of the Mikmaq tribe situated near Port Royal, site of the first French settlement in Acadia, present-day Nova Scotia, Canada. Originally sakmow of the Kespukwitk district, he was appointed as Grand Chief by the sakmowk of the other six districts. His exact date of birth is not known. However, Membertou claimed to be a grown man when he first met Jacques Cartier.[3] Membertou was the leader of a small band of Mikmaq whose hunting and fishing territory included the area of Port-Royal.[3] In addition to being sakmow or political leader, Membertou had also been the head autmoin or spiritual leader of his tribe - who believed him to have powers of healing and prophecy. He first met the French when they arrived to build the Habitation at ...

Im sure the intentions of whoever wrote the press release were good . . . but . . . it is quite a stretch. Still, interesting that it made it into Google News. The research the author discusses has nothing to do with Crossfit. The press release does, however, attempt to associate a high-fat diet (promoted by some Crossfitters as healthy than other diets) with lower incidence of cardiovascular disease by comparing incidence of disease between residents of Switzerland and Australian aboriginals living in modern Australia. The claim was that a high-fat dining Swiss have less cardiovascular disease than the presumed low-fat dining Australian Aboriginals and that, therefore, high-fat diets are healthier than low-fat diets.. I have not looked up the statistics for the Swiss, but Australian Aboriginals have been suffering increasing rates of cardiovascular disease over at least the last 30 years. Few modern Aboriginals are likely to be following a traditional Aboriginal diet. It is extremely unlikely ...

NAHO recognises the need to retrace Aboriginal history and improve education with the children, the youth, parents, families, and the community at large.. Improving historical education services for the children will begin by tendering to parents.. The history of Aboriginals is not only affected by individual behavior but also by broader socioeconomic factors. Besides, there is also the issue of cumulative effects of colonization, which the Aboriginals continue to face.. There are a series of ongoing challenges which deteriorate child and family history. The racism effect that Aboriginals face results in poor physical and mental health. NAHO supports proposals to that aim at improving both the childs and the familys historical outcomes. Such initiatives include access to quality and affordable education. We seek to strengthen the next generation of the indigenous population.. ...

These population-based health survey data suggest that chronic diseases and risk factors are not uniformly distributed across ethnic groups and geographic regions of northern Canada and that some negative shifts have occurred in their distribution in a relatively short period of time.. Some of the findings of this study are consistent with previous research comparing Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal populations in southern Canada or in other countries, but others are not. For example, smoking rates are reported elsewhere to be higher among Aboriginals compared with non-Aboriginals (8,12). A previous study that compared chronic disease and risk factors between northern and southern Canadian populations found that the Aboriginals had a higher prevalence of overweight and obesity, daily smoking, and physical inactivity than the non-Aboriginals (13). However, we found that these risk factors among northern Canadian populations varied substantially. In addition, with respect to overweight, recent ...

Aboriginals are the fastest growing population in Canada. The 2006 census revealed that there are half a million First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people living in Canadian cities and that over 50% of this population is under 25 year old. Given the dramatic increase in urban populations, 60% of Canadas Aboriginals now reside in urban settings, more research is sorely needed to understand how Aboriginals and Non-Aboriginals are relating in this atmosphere of rapidly changing demographics.. The Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study (UAPS) began to take shape when Michael Adams, founder and president of Environics Research Group and the non-profit Environics Institute, and Dr. David Newhouse, Chair of Indigenous Studies at Trent University, found themselves at a conference discussing social change among Canadas Aboriginal groups. In response to the startling information emerging from the 2006 census, Dr. Newhouse asked: Does the average Canadian have any image of who these people are, how they relate to ...

Indigenous peoples in what is now Canada did not form state societies, and in the absence of state structures, academics usually classify indigenous people by their traditional lifeway (or primary economic activity) and ecological/climactic region into culture areas, or by their language families.[10] The Mikmaq in todays Maritimes were governed as seven separate districts with their own district chiefs and councils coordinated by the Grand Council meeting yearly on Cape Breton Island. Following their first conflict with the British invaders (King Philips War) in 1677, the Mikmaq joined the wider Wabanaki Confederacy, an alliance with four other Algonquian-language nations: the Abenaki, Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, and Maliseet.[11][12] To the west around the Great Lakes Council of Three Fires was formed in 796 CE according to oral history, between the Ojibwa, Odawa and the Potawatomi.[13] The five (later six) tribes of the Iroquois Confederacy, was united in 1142 CE according to their ...
Results: We estimated admixture levels using ADMIXTURE software based on 74 AIMs selected from Ovine 50KSNP data. Awassi x Ethiopian fat-tailed crossbred sheep populations kept in government farms and farmer villages in different districts were included in the study. Mean Awassi levels estimated based on the selected AIMs were close to the Awassi levels obtained from pedigree information. Estimates from the 74 SNPs were compared to subsets of 65, 55, 45, 35, 25 and 15 SNPs selected based on both top and bottom fixation index (F-ST) rank using Spearmans rank correlation (r = 0.862-0.996). A t-test comparison revealed that all SNP subsets had produced similar (P > 0.05) estimates with the 74 SNPs, except for the bottom 15 SNPs (P < 0.05). However estimates based on 45 and above SNP subsets were relatively close to the fitted regression line (r = 0.969-0.996). Association of admixture levels with lamb growth showed that Awassi level affected (P < 0.05) eight months weight in both farmer locations, ...
As to the factors for figuring out anyone being a member of such a race, Deane claimed, It is actually needless, with the applications with the existing case, to evaluate the meaning to be specified into the phrase people of any race in s.51. Plainly, the text have a wide and non-technical that means, the phrase is, in my view, apposite to confer with all Australian Aboriginals collectively. Any doubt, which could in any other case exist in regard, is taken off by reference on the wording of par. The phrase can be apposite to confer with any identifiable racial sub-group among the Australian Aboriginals, when Deanes three-portion definition reaches past the Organic criterion to people self-identification, it has been criticised as continuing to simply accept the Organic criterion as Principal.

  • We identified and validated a minimum set of 192 ancestry informative markers (AIMs) for the genetic ancestry determination of Brazilian populations. (
  • Understanding the genetic structure of a population is important for understanding its population history, as well as designing studies of complex biomedical traits, including disease susceptibility," said Stanford professor of genetics Carlos Bustamante , PhD. "As we deploy genomics technology in previously understudied populations like those of Latin America, we discover remarkable richness in the genetic diversity of these important groups and why it matters for health and disease. (
  • The researchers found that Mexico's indigenous populations diverge genetically along a diagonal northwest-to-southeast axis, with differences becoming more pronounced as the ethnic groups become more geographically distant from one another. (
  • Here, we report an analysis of admixture in thirteen Mestizo populations (i.e. in regions of mainly European and Native settlement) from seven countries in Latin America based on data for 678 autosomal and 29 X-chromosome microsatellites. (
  • We found extensive variation in Native American and European ancestry (and generally low levels of African ancestry) among populations and individuals, and evidence that admixture across Latin America has often involved predominantly European men and both Native and African women. (
  • This observation is consistent with the genetic structure of pre-Columbian populations and with admixture having involved Natives from the area where the Mestizo examined are located. (
  • Approximate Geographic Location of the Mestizo Populations Examined and of the Native American Populations Considered in the Analyses. (
  • The Native populations have been color coded based on their affiliation to one of the main Amerindian linguistic stocks according to the classification of Ruhlen. (
  • Ancestry Proportions in 13 Mestizo Populations. (
  • The populations have been ordered left to right based on decreasing autosomal European ancestry. (
  • Ancestry was estimated by grouping data for populations sampled in Europe, Africa and Native Americans into three continental population samples. (
  • Heterozygosity vs. Proportion of European Ancestry in Mestizo Populations. (
  • Coyne has a second post on More on genes and geography: diagnosing your ancestry from your DNA , showing how easy it is to distinguish various human populations based on the frequency of alleles they contain. (
  • Modern Latin American populations were formed via genetic admixture among ancestral source populations from Africa, the Americas and Europe. (
  • We are interested in studying how combinations of genetic ancestry in admixed Latin American populations may impact genomic determinants of health and disease. (
  • We characterized the genetic ancestry, relatedness, and admixture patterns for each of the admixed Latin American genomes, finding a spectrum of ancestry proportions within and between populations. (
  • All four of the Latin American populations show ancestry-enrichment for a number of shared pathways, yielding evidence of similar selection pressures on these populations during their evolution. (
  • For example, all four populations show ancestry-enriched SNPs in multiple genes from immune system pathways, such as the cytokine receptor interaction, T cell receptor signaling, and antigen presentation pathways. (
  • Ancestry-enriched SNPs in Latin American populations have a substantial effect on health- and disease-related phenotypes. (
  • The concordant impact observed for same phenotypes across populations points to a process of adaptive introgression, whereby ancestry-enriched SNPs with specific functional utility appear to have been retained in modern populations by virtue of their effects on health and fitness. (
  • The conquest and colonization of the Americas, along with the trans-Atlantic slave trade, brought African, European, and Native American populations into close and sustained contact for the first time. (
  • We developed a panel of 446 ancestry informative markers (AIMs) optimized to estimate ancestral proportions in individuals and populations throughout Latin America. (
  • We used genome-wide data from 953 individuals from diverse African, European, and Native American populations to select AIMs optimized for each of the three main continental populations that form the basis of modern Latin American populations. (
  • We then validated the panel in samples from four admixed populations by comparing ancestry estimates based on the AIMs panel to estimates based on genome-wide association study (GWAS) data. (
  • Finally, we genotyped samples from 18 populations from Latin America using the AIMs panel and estimated variability in ancestry within and between these populations. (
  • Additionally, variability in these foramina between different ethnic groups has been observed, and it is sometimes possible to identify particular patterns of variability in certain populations. (
  • A new effort to catalog genetic diversity among people in Mexico-who along with other Latin Americans have a unique ancestry-could shed light on diseases that affect these groups disproportionately, and on why some drugs may work more or less effectively in these populations. (
  • The research will focus on the genetic basis of type 2 diabetes in Mexican and Latin American populations, as well as on the genomics of cancer worldwide. (
  • Type 2 diabetes occurs at a particularly high frequency in Latin American populations, and "there's reason to think that the Native American contribution to the gene pool has some effect," he adds. (
  • Beginning in the 1950s, Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza started formalizing the study of genetic differences among populations by examining distinct blood group proteins. (
  • This suggested to some researchers the hypothesis of a 'Beringian standstill', whereby the first founding population of the Americas was isolated from Eurasian populations before its radiation into a multitude of subpopulations in America [15]. (
  • For example, the mitochondrial DNA subtype called D4h3a is to day almost entirely restricted to Pacific coastal populations, both in North and South America. (
  • This observation led to the hypothesis that D4h3a was carried south of the ice sheets along a coastal route, in a migratory movement that was distinctive from the one that led to many other Native American populations [24]. (
  • Sources of Native American ancestry Under the hypothesis that Native American ancestry stems from a single founder population that separated earlier from Eurasian populations, differences in allele frequencies between Native American groups should have developed independently from Eurasian allele frequencies. (
  • This simple null hypothesis makes it possible to explicitly test hypotheses about the number of American founder populations. (
  • 23 ] applied this idea to the first comprehensive genome-wide data from Native American populations (52 populations, but none from the continental United States), and concluded that at least three ancestral populations were required to explain the similarities between Native Americans and East Asians. (
  • In addition, analysis of the Athabaskan-speaking Chipewyan revealed that they could not solely have their ancestry from the same founding population as other Northern-, Meso- and South American populations. (
  • And, although evidence points to the fact that the individual genetic mutations that produced the ABO genes are quite ancient (1) this is trivial importance with regard to the actual demographics of the individual ABO blood groups in ancient populations. (
  • Identification of Obesity and Cardiovascular Risk in Ethnically and Racially Diverse Populations: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association. (
  • The main populations are the 'Ladinos' (~60%), a term used in Central America (deriving from 'latino'), and especially in Guatemala, to refer to a mix of Native American and Spanish (and eventually of Africans), and the Maya or 'Indígena' (~40%), that constitutes the second most important group in the country. (
  • The "(global) problem of ancestry inference" of human genetics takes as input genotype data on M markers for N subjects and produces as output some sort of clustering or assignment of the N subjects into populations. (
  • Admixed American populations have different global proportions of European, Sub-Saharan African, and Native-American ancestry. (
  • Furthermore, Brazilian non-inverted haplotypes were more similar to Native-American haplotypes than to European haplotypes, in contrast to what was found in other American admixed populations. (
  • However, local ancestry inference has been poorly explored in Brazilian individuals 20 , and since a specific demographic history can impact human populations differently, their study could potentially add relevant information about the distribution of local ancestry along the human genome. (
  • In a global PCA with the 1,000 Genomes Project (1 KGP) populations (Fig. 1a and Supplementary Fig. 1 ), BRS individuals were spread between Europeans, sub-Saharan Africans, and Native-Americans/East Asians, as are other admixed American populations, but were distributed mainly between Europeans and sub-Saharans rather than towards Native-Americans. (
  • Scientific analysis of human genomes from different parts of the world has shown that, on a global scale, modern humans divide genetically into seven continental populations: African, Middle Eastern, European, Central/South Asian, East Asian, Oceanian, and Native American. (
  • In order to determine a new subject's genetic ancestry, Parabon Snapshot analyzes tens of thousands of SNPs from a DNA sample to determine a person's percent membership in each of these global populations. (
  • Most other forensic ancestry systems use only a small number of SNPs and thus are limited to very coarse populations and cannot detect admixture between populations. (
  • Parabon's scientists have collected data from many published scientific articles, totalling more than 9,000 individuals with clearly defined ancestry from more than 150 populations around the world, as shown in the map. (
  • Efforts are ongoing to increase the representation of Native American populations. (
  • Academic research using hundreds of thousands of SNPs from across the genome has shown that human groups generally divide into seven continental populations, which have been established over the past 50,000 years during the migration out of Africa. (
  • The 150 populations collected as the ancestry background can thus be divided into these seven continental groups according to their origin. (
  • Snapshot takes a similar approach to identifying within-continental (regional) ancestry, although the local populations were identified through empirical analysis performed by our bioinformatics team. (
  • In an ancestry analysis, Snapshot will determine an individual's precise genetic origins, as well as whether there is any evidence of admixture (contribution from multiple populations). (
  • Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is at least twice as prevalent in Native American populations as in populations of European ancestry, so admixture mapping is well suited to study the genetic basis of this complex disease. (
  • The effective number of generations back to unadmixed ancestors was 6.7 (95% CI 5.7-8.0), from which we can estimate that genome-wide admixture mapping will require typing about 1,400 evenly distributed AIMs to localize genes underlying disease risk between populations of European and Native American ancestry. (
  • Four continental populations were used as ancestral references: European, West African, East Asian and Native American. (
  • Our work focuses on two neighboring populations with distinct ancestry profiles: Antioquia and Chocó. (
  • A number of these pharmacogenomic variants also show anomalous effect allele frequencies within and between the two Colombian populations, and these differences were found to be associated with their distinct genetic ancestry profiles. (
  • In addition to pharmacogenomic alleles related to increased toxicity risk, we also have evidence that alleles related to dosage and metabolism have large frequency differences between the two populations, which are associated with their specific ancestries. (
  • Hispanic/Latino populations possess a complex genetic structure that reflects recent admixture among and potentially ancient substructure within Native American, European, and West African source populations. (
  • Intersecting these data with previously collected high-density SNP data from 4,305 individuals, we use principal component analysis and clustering methods FRAPPE and STRUCTURE to investigate genome-wide patterns of African, European, and Native American population structure within and among Hispanic/Latino populations. (
  • Comparing autosomal, X and Y chromosome, and mtDNA variation, we find evidence of a significant sex bias in admixture proportions consistent with disproportionate contribution of European male and Native American female ancestry to present-day populations. (
  • libria in admixed Hispanic/Latino populations are largely affected by the admixture dynamics of the populations, with faster decay of LD in populations of higher African ancestry. (
  • We document moderate power to differentiate among potential subcontinental source populations within the Native American, European, and African segments of the admixed Hispanic/Latino genomes. (
  • Our results suggest future genome-wide association scans in Hispanic/Latino populations may require correction for local genomic ancestry at a subcontinental scale when associating differences in the genome with disease risk, progression, and drug efficacy, as well as for admixture mapping. (
  • This dataset was chosen since it comprises several genetically diverse worldwide populations whom ancestries have evolved in different environments and thus lived following various nutritional habits and lifestyles. (
  • Twenty-four SNPs distributed across 14 CT genes separated populations into continental and intra-continental groups such as African hunter-gatherers and farmers, and between Native American sub-populations. (
  • Central and South America have a double bottleneck/founder effect. (
  • There is the historically distant Beringian founder bottleneck, but there is also the founder effects associated with rapid population growth during the pre-Columbian adoption of agriculture (Olmec/Mayan/Aztec in Central America, Inca in South America). (
  • So it makes sense that Central/South/West Asia is next and South America is the highest. (
  • But why is Oceania high and EXACTLY the same as South America? (
  • From their bivouac on the Asian continent in what is now Yemen, they appear to have set out on a decamillennial journey that spanned continents and land bridges and reached all the way to Tierra del Fuego, at the bottom of South America. (
  • and SOUTH AMERICA unspecified or combined. (
  • According to the initial study [23 ], all Native American groups from Central and South America fit a model of a single founder population. (
  • Sequencing of entire Guatemalan mitogenomes has led to improved Native American phylogeny via the addition of new haplogroups that are mainly observed in Mesoamerica and/or the North of South America. (
  • The data reveal the existence of a fluid gene flow in the Mesoamerican area and a predominant unidirectional flow towards South America, most likely occurring during the Pre-Classic (1800 BC-200 AD) and the Classic (200-1000 AD) Eras of the Mesoamerican chronology, coinciding with development of the most distinctive and advanced Mesoamerican civilization, the Maya. (
  • Genomic insights into the ancestry and demographic history of South America. (
  • Guatemala is a multiethnic and multilingual country located in Central America. (
  • Complex historical factors have resulted in varying proportions of ancestral contributions between individuals within and among ethnic groups. (
  • Ancestry Informative Markers (AIMs) are commonly used to estimate overall admixture proportions efficiently and inexpensively [4] . (
  • We used 370,539 Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) to examine the association between individual proportions of African, European and Native American genomic ancestry with T. cruzi infection and related outcomes in 1,341 participants (aged ≥ 60 years) of the Bambui (Brazil) population-based cohort study of aging. (
  • Discover what proportions of your ancestry come from the seven continental level groups, including African, Asian, European or Native American descent. (
  • Admixture proportions were estimated using 69 autosomal ancestry-informative markers (AIMs). (
  • The metrics for summarizing genetic ancestry in each ancestral component were standardized as proportions ranging from 0 to 100 percent. (
  • The aims of this study were to provide a resource for determining and quantifying individual continental ancestry using the smallest number of SNPs possible, thus allowing for a cost- and time-efficient strategy for genomic ancestry determination. (
  • We analyzed a total of 347 admixed Latin American genomes along with 1102 putative ancestral source genomes from Africans, Europeans, and Native Americans. (
  • A comparison among, say, East Africans and Native Americans can yield vital clues to human ancestry and to the inexorable progression of colonizations from continent to continent. (
  • West African" is not just a social construct, because West Africans are not an ethnic group. (
  • If the subjects' ancestors came from all over the inhabited world, the clusters that first emerge will identify the five major races: Asians, Caucasians, sub-Saharan Africans, Native Americans and the original inhabitants of Australia and Papua New Guinea. (
  • In Wade's telling, the Caucasian and East Asian races comprise the richest and most powerful nations in the world because they are genetically better adapted to success in modern capitalist systems than are Africans and the other racial groups, who remain steeped in tribalism, the "default" human condition. (
  • In conclusion, these markers can be used to identify and accurately quantify ancestry of Latin Americans or US Hispanics/Latino individuals, in particular in the context of fine-mapping strategies that require the quantification of continental ancestry in thousands of individuals. (
  • There is not a single biological element unique to any of the groups we call white, black, Asian, Latino, etc. (
  • For example, in a study of five Hispanic/Latino ethnic groups, Puerto Ricans and Dominicans showed the largest proportion of African ancestry, while Mexicans had a significantly larger proportion of Native American ancestry than the other groups [2] . (
  • Childhood asthma prevalence and morbidity varies among Latinos in the United States, with Puerto Ricans having the highest and Mexicans the lowest.To determine whether genetic ancestry is associated with the odds of asthma among Latinos, and secondarily whether genetic ancestry is associated with lung function among Latino children.We analyzed 5493 Latinos with and without asthma from 3 independent studies. (
  • For example, the admixed East Asian and Latino example from the global map above was determined to have specifically Japanses, Central American, and Southwest European ancestry, as shown in the map below. (
  • Latino ancestry is a mixture of European and Native American ancestry, so these groups are shown as well. (
  • For the white Latino population of the United States, see White Hispanic and Latino Americans . (
  • Estimates of individual admixture using this 192 AIM panels were highly correlated with estimates using ~370 000 genome-wide SNPs: 91%, 92%, and 74% of, respectively, African, European, and Native American ancestry components. (
  • We also observed that genetic ancestry inferred by AIMs provides similar association results to the one obtained using ancestry inferred by genomic data (370 K SNPs) in a simple regression model with rs1426654, related to skin pigmentation, genotypes as dependent variable. (
  • We then identified single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with anomalous ancestry-enrichment patterns, i.e. (
  • SNPs that exist in any given Latin American population at a higher frequency than expected based on the population's genetic ancestry profile. (
  • For this set of ancestry-enriched SNPs, we inspected their phenotypic impact on disease, metabolism, and the immune system. (
  • We also found SNPs with excess African or European ancestry that are associated with ancestry-specific gene expression patterns and play crucial roles in the immune system and infectious disease responses. (
  • Genes from both the innate and adaptive immune system were found to be regulated by ancestry-enriched SNPs with population-specific regulatory effects. (
  • We observed a significant excess in the directional consistency of T2D risk alleles across ancestry groups, even at SNPs demonstrating only weak evidence of association. (
  • Snapshot uses tens of thousands of SNPs across the genome to obtain very precise estimates of ancestry, even for admixed individuals. (
  • The phasing process relies on the comparison of your genotype with those of people with known haplotypes (haplotypes are just strings of markers (SNPs) shared by groups of people, ACGT's, the building blocks of DNA). (
  • There are no genes that make blacks in the USA more susceptible to high blood pressure, just as there are no genes for particular kinds of cancers that can be assigned to only one racial grouping. (
  • A manager who makes it clear that he or she believes in racial stereotypes by admitting that he or she refuses to promote a certain minority group because "all [members of that group] are lazy. (

  • As geneticists Collins and Mansoura point out in their article, quoted above, that those who wish to draw "precise boundaries" around certain racial groups will not be able to use science as a legitimate justification. (
  • It appears that the most natural of all ways to classify humans genetically is by the racial and ethnic groups that humans have identified from time out of mind. (
  • You often hear that between-group racial differences only account for 15% of genetic variation. (
  • This number comes from a 1972 study by Richard Lewontin of 17 blood types, comparing variation between continental-scale races and between national-scale racial groups (e.g. (
  • In many parts of Latin America being white is more a matter of socio-economic status than specific phenotypic traits, and it is often said that in Latin America "money whitens" [32] Within Latin America there are variations in how racial boundaries have been defined. (
  • Alternately, in countries like Mexico and Brazil mixture has been emphasized as fundamental for nation-building, resulting in a large group of bi-racial mestizos , in Mexico, or tri-racial pardos , in Brazil, [33] [34] who are considered neither fully white nor fully non-white. (

  • An African American is a person in the United States whose ancestors , usually in predominant part, were indigenous to Sub-Saharan Africa . (
  • The indigenous peoples of Africa are those peoples from the African region whose way of life, attachment or claims to particular lands, and social and political standing in relation to other more dominant groups have resulted in their substantial marginalisation within modern African states. (
  • We looked to see how well we could predict how much genetic ancestry they had from Africa, Europe and so forth," said study co-author Terry Jernigan, PhD, professor of cognitive science, psychiatry and radiology, adding that cortex differences between various lineages were focused in certain areas.

  • 28 Genetics of human origin The greatest contribution of mitochondrial DNA studies to the understanding of Native American prehistory has been in the area of reconstruction of population size history. (
  • Mitochondrial DNA analyses were the first to document that the ancestry of most Native Americans derives from a population that experienced a profound founder event [10], with a relatively small number of individuals giving rise to a large number of descendants to day . (
  • The evidence for this is that all Native American mitochondrial DNA lineages to day descend from just five founding maternal lines [11-13] that each had a common ancestor around 18,000 to 15,000 years ago, implying a population size bottleneck around this time [14-18]. (
  • A second finding about Native American population history based on mitochondrial DNA data is that the founder event may have been preceeded by an extended period (many thousands of years) of little or no shared ancestry with non-Native American mitochondrial DNA lineages. (
  • To examine whether inherited differences in the IGFBP1 and IGFBP3 genes influence prostate and breast cancer susceptibility, we conducted two large population-based association studies of African Americans, Native Hawaiians, Japanese Americans, Latinos, and Whites. (
  • In essence if you start off with a small number of a particular gene in a larger gene pool (such as the gene for blood group B in the gene pool for ABO blood type) and nothing other than random mating occurred, at the end of a period of time, you would still have a small number of B genes in the ABO gene pool. (
  • The answer lies not in the ancient nature of the mutations that produced the A and B genes, but rather in the discreet interactions that occurred between early man and his environment that were under the influence of his ABO blood group. (
  • The contributions of Native American ancestors to maternal and paternal lineages were estimated as 90 and 40%, respectively. (
  • The endemic Hawaiian mints represent a major island radiation that likely originated from hybridization between two North American polyploid lineages. (

  • Here, we quantify genome-wide patterns of SNP and haplotype variation among 100 individuals with ancestry from Ecuador, Colombia, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic genotyped on the Illumina 610-Quad arrays and 112 Mexicans genotyped on Affymetrix 500K platform. (
  • There are three genetic markers on your DNA that can provide clues to your ancestry: one from your father, another from your mother and a third from both sides of the family (from familysearch ). (
  • Only in the last century have scientists and anthropologists begun using biological markers such as the blood groups in the search for humanity's imprint on our distant past. (
  • Thus today's standard American DNA fingerprint, with its battery of 15 gene markers (two were recently added to the standard 13), is a sort of bar code identifier that is fine for matching two DNA samples but offers no hints about the human package from which a crime-scene DNA sample is derived. (
  • Because geneticists have largely kept mum about ethnic markers, it proved something of a shock when DNAPrint Genomics concluded last March that a Louisiana serial killer's "biogeographical ancestry" was 85 percent sub-Saharan African and 15 percent Native American. (
  • The principal aim of this study is to explore the genetic variability of the Maya and 'Ladinos' from Guatemala by means of uniparental and ancestry informative markers (AIMs). (
  • Widely-used methods for ancestry prediction assume that most markers are genotyped in all subjects, but this assumption is unrealistic if one wants to combine studies that used different genotyping platforms. (
  • To provide ancestry inference and visualization across studies, we developed a new method, GRAF-pop, of ancestry prediction that is robust to missing genotypes and allows researchers to visualize predicted population structure in color and in three dimensions. (
  • When genotypes are dense, GRAF-pop is comparable in quality and running time to existing ancestry inference methods EIGENSTRAT, FastPCA, and FlashPCA2, all of which rely on principal components analysis (PCA). (
  • Inference of individual ancestry from genetic data arises in genome wide association studies (GWAS), personalized medicine, and human migration studies. (
  • Finally, using the locus-specific ancestry inference method LAMP, we reconstruct fine-scale chromosomal patterns of admixture. (

  • Significant differences were present in soft and hard tissue norms of Iranian's in comparison to American Caucasions. (
  • It is no surprise, then, that many of the distinctions between the blood groups involve basic functions of our digestive and immune systems.Evolution is usually considered in the context of millions of years, which is the time frame needed to explain the many differences between animals or other species. (
  • If Lewontin wants to argue that Japanese, West-African, and Amerindian "ancestry" is informative about genetic differences (with varying levels of resolution) then there isn't much of substance to argue about, though we can quibble about whether we want a trendy euphemism to describe this differentiation that exists below the species level. (
  • As we all know, there are morphologically different groups of people who live in different areas, though those differences are blurring due to recent innovations in transportation that have led to more admixture between human groups. (
  • However, individuals who display the same global ancestry could exhibit remarkable differences in the distribution of local ancestry blocks. (
  • Admixture mapping is a recently developed method for identifying genetic risk factors involved in complex traits or diseases showing prevalence differences between major continental groups. (
  • Geographic differences in infectious disease mortality rates have been observed among American Indian or Alaska Native (AI/AN) persons in the United States (1), and aggregate analyses of data from selected U.S. states indicate that COVID-19 incidence and mortality are higher among AI/AN persons than they are among White persons (2,3). (
  • Methods: With data from vital statistics and the national census, we calculate lung cancer death rates in 2000 for four US subpopulations: foreign-born, native-born, Hispanic and non-Hispanic White. (
  • So when Wade states in chapter 5 of his book, "It might be reasonable to elevate the Indian and Middle Eastern groups to the level of major races, making seven in all," he notices a problem: "But then, many more subpopulations could be declared races. (
  • After global ancestry is determined, Snapshot's ancestry algorithm investigates which subpopulations (e.g. (
