    Lightbulb Genetic Structure and Race, and Confounding in Case-Control Association Studies

    Genetic Structure, Self-Identified Race/Ethnicity, and Confounding in Case-Control Association Studies

    We have analyzed genetic data for 326 microsatellite markers that were typed uniformly in a large multiethnic population-based sample of individuals as part of a study of the genetics of hypertension (Family Blood Pressure Program). Subjects identified themselves as belonging to one of four major racial/ethnic groups (white, African American, East Asian, and Hispanic) and were recruited from 15 different geographic locales within the United States and Taiwan. Genetic cluster analysis of the microsatellite markers produced four major clusters, which showed near-perfect correspondence with the four self-reported race/ethnicity categories. Of 3,636 subjects of varying race/ethnicity, only 5 (0.14%) showed genetic cluster membership different from their self-identified race/ethnicity. On the other hand, we detected only modest genetic differentiation between different current geographic locales within each race/ethnicity group. Thus, ancient geographic ancestry, which is highly correlated with self-identified race/ethnicity—as opposed to current residence—is the major determinant of genetic structure in the U.S. population. Implications of this genetic structure for case-control association studies are discussed.

    Works for me...
    "slavic" languages are absolutely arteficial (Read "slawenlegende"). The "glagolica", invented by a bunch of monks, is nothing but an ancient esperanto, creating new words, definitions and alphabet out of regional slangs.

    The craddle of European Civilization comes from the North. All blond people originate from the north. So if you see a blond-blue eyed Slovene, Russian, Czech, Polak ect., you can be 100% sure that his ancient ancestors originated from "Germanics" (Germanic = Nordic).
    "slovenja" was the settelment of the Langobards = Germanics/Teutons. "Poland" of the Goths and East-Vandals ect. ect. What do "slavs" tell us about their origin?
    Some silly story that they originate from some swamps in the east and popped out of no where into history.

    So you see my dear "Gorostan" [=Triglav], you are in reality a "Germanic" indoctrinated with panslav propaganda and historic fantasy stories. ~Dr. Brandt, former TNP and Skadi member

    Post Which Genes Code For Race?

    Which Genes Code For Race or are responsible for Racial differences? How different genetically are the races from each other? How different genetically are the subraces from each other?

    All genes which are not stabilised in the entire human species. These genes are distributed in overlapping clines.

    How different genetically are the races from each other?
    Depends which races you are comparing. Probably about 1/10 of a percent or something along those lines. Remember chimps share over 98% of our genes.

    How different genetically are the subraces from each other?
    Obviously even less, but I couldn't give you a meaningful percentage.

    It also depends whether you're talking about the nucleotide sequence. Two different races may theoretically share no alleles/genes, but alleles coding for the same traits always have very similar nucleotide sequences.
