• A Hybrid Supervised Approach to Human Population Identification Using Genomics Data

    5 days ago - By IEEE/ACM

    Single nucleotide polymorphisms are one type of genetic variations and each SNP represents a difference in a single DNA building block, namely a nucleotide. Previous research demonstrated that SNPs can be used to identify the correct source population of an individual. In addition, variations in the DNA sequences have an influence on human diseases. In this regard, SNPs studies are helpful for personalized medicine and treatment. In the literature, unsupervised clustering methods especially principal component analysis have been popular for studying population structure. In this study, we...
