Abstract:
We introduce a method called projection analysis for comparing a test genome with numerous genomes from a reference population. We show how the projection depends on the time of population splitting, the history of admixture and changes in past population size. We compute the projection of several human and archaic genomes onto three reference populations from the 1000 Genomes project, Europeans (CEU), Han Chinese (CHB) and Yoruba (YRI) and discuss the consistency of our analysis with previously published results for European and Yoruba demographic history. Including higher amounts of admixture between Europeans and Yoruba soon after their separation and low amounts of admixture more recently can resolve discrepancies between the projections and demographic inferences from some previous studies.
