  1. Admixture Mapping Qunyuan Zhang Division of Statistical Genomics GEMS Course M21-621 Computational Statistical Genetics March 25, 2010

  2. Three Mapping Strategies Linkage Analysis (linkage): genotype & phenotype data from family (or families) Association Scan (LD): genotype & phenotype data from population(s) or families Admixture Mapping (LD): genotype data from admixed and ancestral populations, phenotype data from admixed populations (1) Ancestry-phenotype association mapping (2) Ancestry info for population structure control

  3. Ancestral Population 2 Caucasians Ancestral Population 1 Africans Admixture Information (Ancestry Analysis) Admixture Mapping Admixed Population African Americans Genetic Admixture

  4. Rationale of Admixture Mapping If a disease has some genetic factors, and the disease gene frequency in pop 2 is higher than in pop 1. After the admixture of pop 1 and 2, the diseased individuals in admixed generations will carry disease genes/alleles that have more ancestry from pop 2 than from pop 1. If a marker is linked with disease genes, because of linkage disequilibrium, the diseased individuals will also carry the marker copies that have more ancestry from pop 2 than from pop 1. Inversely, if we find a marker/locus whose ancestry from pop 2 in diseased group is significantly different from that in non-diseased group, we consider this marker/locus to be linked with (or a part of ) disease gene.

  5. Illustration of Admixture

  6. Advantages of Admixture Mapping Admixed population has more genetic variation and polymorphism than relatively pure ancestral populations. Admixture produces new LD in admixed population. Compared with ancestral populations, shorter genetic history of admixture population keeps more LD (long genetic history will destroy LD), In admixed population, LD could be detected for relatively loose linkage. Ancestry information can be used to control population stratification caused by genetic admixture. According to simulation, admixture mapping demonstrates higher power than regular methods, needs less sample size. Flexible design: case-control or case-only, qualitative or quantitative traits, no need of pedigree information

  7. Ancestry Proportion of genetic materials descending from each founding population Population level : population admixture proportion Individual level: individual admixture proportion Individual-locus level: locus-specific ancestry

  8. Two Ways of Using Ancestral Info. Individual Ancestry (IA) can be used as a genetic background covariate for population structure control Phenotype= a + b * Genotype + c * IA + Error Locus-specific Ancestry (LSA) can be directly used to detect association (admixture mapping) Phenotype=a + b * LSA

  9. Individual Ancestry (IA) Estimation using MLE • G: Observed genotypes of admixed and ancestral populations • Q: Allelic frequencies in ancestral populations • P : Individual Ancestry to be estimated • Goal: obtain P that maximizes Pr(G|P,Q) • Assign prior values for Q (randomly or estimated from ancestral population genotype data) & P (randomly) • Compute P(i) by solving • Compute Q(i) by solving • Iterate Steps 1 and 2 until convergence. • Tang et al. Genetic Epidemiology, 2005(28): 289–301

  10. ObservedG:genotypes of admixed and ancestral populations • UnknownZ :admixed individuals’ locus specific ancestries from ancestral populations • Problem: How to estimateZ ? • Maximum Likelihood Estimate(MLE): • How to obtain aZthat maximizes Pr(G|Z) ? • Zis a huge space of parameters, in which search is difficult for likelihood method. • Bayesian and Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods • Assume ancestral population numberK • Define prior distribution Pr(Z) underK • Use MCMC to sample from posterior distribution Pr(Z|G) = Pr(Z)∙ Pr(G|Z) • Average over large number of MCMC samples to obtain estimate ofZ • Falush et al.
