Classification of individuals using AIMs


You are entering our portal on classification using SNPs-Indels-microhaplotypes, hosting the Snipper App suite version 3. It is the companion site to several papers.

Important: WebGL needs to be enabled in your browser settings to view 3D PCA output. If it is already enabled, you will be able to rotate the 3D logo on the left. Most major browsers enable it by default.

Green colour in links means fixed training sets. On the other hand, red means custom training sets. Available tasks are:

Classification as Europe-East Asia-Africa-America-Oceania (34 SNPs, 46 Indels, or both sets at once)

Classification as individual having black-intermediate-white skin

Classification as individual having fair-dark or red-blond-brown-black hair

Classification as individual having blue-greenhazel-brown eyes
