Chromosome level breakdown. Identifying and annotating ancestry along the genome

Although each one of our chromosomes are currently travelling together they have their own evolutionary history separated from each other. Each one of our ancestors received a copy for each chromosome from their parents and just before passing them down to their descendants they were reshuffled at the individual chromosome level. Every reshuffling is random and over generations this is reflected in the diversity of origin exhibited by each individual chromosome.

XGMix can do
what others can't

It’s the latest technology from population genomics.

XGMix provides the user with a detailed picture of their ancestry as reflected by their individual chromosomes. Our genetic makeup is the result of our ancestors' journeys, tribulations, and love stories through time. These aspects might surface in you, your close relatives, or later on in your descendants.

Highest resolution ever

XGMix assigns ancestry with a higher resolution than approaches from other providers. Our patented algorithm can be tailored to be as precise as needed.

Robust ancestry prediction

XGMix has proprietary reference populations and algorithm design that together surpass ancestry prediction accuracy generated by other providers.

Chromosome level

XGMix is based on XGBoost systems that come with custom-trained models for each chromosome that can accurately infer local ancestry with classification probabilities along each individual chromosome.

Razib Khan

Razib Khan is a geneticist and public intellectual who has worked in personal genomics in the private sector. have written for publications that include The New York Times, MIT Technology Review, City Journal, National Review & The Guardian, on a broad range of topics.

The authors present a new simple, accurate, and easily trained methods for identifying and annotating ancestry along the genome (local ancestry). This method (XGMix) based on gradient boosted trees, which, while being accurate, is also simple to use, and fast to train, taking minutes on consumer-level laptops.
