Exploring potential reasons for geographic patterns in admixture proportions The data show clear geographic trends in admixture proportions in Cuba. Chapter 2 in Antonio Alonso ed. Figure 2. These proportions are similar to those based on the report of an external observer; there were discrepancies for only 65 out of the individuals.

Given below are the critical points to understand the difference between the autosomes and sex chromosomes:. For example, human body contains 46 chromosomes within its genome and 44 chromosomes of them are autosomes.
The pair of chromosomes that determines the sex of an organism, as they regulate the sex-linked traits. Each of the chromosomes is composed of the tightly packed DNA, that is coiled around the histones protein.
By genotyping a panel of autosomal AIMs in combination with mtDNA and Y-chromosome markers in a large sample representative of all Cuban provinces, we were able to identify very clear patterns in the distribution of admixture proportions throughout Cuba.
