We first describe a new data resource: Data from many human populations genotyped on a platform specifically designed for population genetics. We then discuss some methodology.
1. Admixture graphs and f-statistics;
2. New methods for joint spectrum analysis;
These methods are applied to show admixture in Europe (probably from Central Asia) and in Yoruba Nigerians.
