Genetic Variation In Human Populations


This data set gives genotypes variation of 1066 individuals belonging to 52 predefined populations, for 404 microsatellite markers.




hdpg is a list of 3 components.


is a data frame with the genotypes of 1066 individuals encoded with 6 characters (individuals in row, locus in column), for example ‘123098’ for a heterozygote carrying alleles ‘123’ and ‘098’, ‘123123’ for a homozygote carrying two alleles ‘123’ and, ‘000000’ for a not classified locus (missing data).


is a a data frame with 4 columns containing information about the 1066 individuals: hdpg$ind$id containing the Diversity Panel identification number of each individual, and three factors hdpg$ind$sex, hdpg$ind$population and hdpg$ind$region containing the names of the 52 populations belonging to 7 major geographic regions (see details).


is a dataframe containing four columns: hdpg$locus$marknames a vector of names of the microsatellite markers, hdpg$locus$allbyloc a vector containing the number of alleles by loci, hdpg$locus$chromosome a factor defining a number for one chromosome and, hdpg$locus$maposition indicating the position of the locus in the chromosome.


The rows of hdpg$pop are the names of the 52 populations belonging to the geographic regions contained in the rows of hdpg$region. The chosen regions are: America, Asia, Europe, Middle East North Africa, Oceania, Subsaharan AFRICA.

The 52 populations are: Adygei, Balochi, Bantu, Basque, Bedouin, Bergamo, Biaka Pygmies, Brahui, Burusho, Cambodian, Columbian, Dai, Daur, Druze, French, Han, Hazara, Hezhen, Japanese, Kalash, Karitiana, Lahu, Makrani, Mandenka, Maya, Mbuti Pygmies, Melanesian, Miaozu, Mongola, Mozabite, Naxi, NewGuinea, Nilote, Orcadian, Oroqen, Palestinian, Pathan, Pima, Russian, San, Sardinian, She, Sindhi, Surui, Tu, Tujia, Tuscan, Uygur, Xibo, Yakut, Yizu, Yoruba.

hdpg$freq is a data frame with 52 rows, corresponding to the 52 populations described above, and 4992 microsatellite markers.
