    Anthropology and Human Genetics Unit, Indian Statistical Institute, 203 B T Road, Kolkata 700 108, India
    J Genet 82:7-12. 2003
    ..We have found that for both methods (i) the estimates are insensitive to demographic parameters and (ii) the standard deviations of the estimates are too high for these methods to be reliably used in practice...

    Analabha Basu
    Institute for Human Genetics, University of California, San Francisco, 513 Parnassus Ave, Room 901H HSW, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA
    Hum Genet 124:207-14. 2008
    ..These locations may harbor genes that have been subjected to natural selection after the ancestral mixing giving rise to Mexicans...
