Precision ID Ancestry Panel
The Applied Biosystems Precision ID Ancestry Panel can provide you with biogeographic ancestry information and guide your investigation process. Utilizing Ion AmpliSeq technology, the Precision ID Ancestry Panel helps to enable simple and fast target selection of hundreds of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) using multiplex PCR. This ready-to-use panel consists of 165 autosomal markers. A total of 55 of these markers were selected based on a poster presented by Dr. Kenneth Kidd, and 123 markers were selected based on a publication by Dr. Michael Seldin. This sensitive panel, with average amplicon sizes of <130 bases, is optimized for degraded DNA samples and uses as little as 125 pg of input DNA.
The Converge Software NGS Data Analysis module contains parameters for analyzing the Precision ID Ancestry Panel, generating admixture predictions as well as the population likelihood from 151 ancestry-informative markers that cover seven continental populations.
