The main purpose of this page is to provide step-by-step command lines for using LASER to estimate ancestry of 6 targeted sequenced samples (2 HapMap trios) in a principal component space generated using genome-wide SNP data from the Human Genome Diversity Project (HGDP). The HGDP reference panel contains genotype data across 632,958 autosomal loci for 938 individuals from 53 populations worldwide.
For more details about the options and usage of LASER, please read the [http://
