Hi all, I advanced using ADMIXTURE after using Plink and I have got K=5, so I ploted the data with R using col=5. I get the barplot with each bar representing an individual but how can I recognize the color label such as the red color for example and/or which population? because the *.5.Q file just has row or column for the proportions and each individual. Thank you.

The key to generating the canonical admixture plots in R is to used a stacked barplot with the coancestry coefficients. Is this what you're doing? It's not clear.

This is the plot from myfile.5.Q using R. I try to find what does mean each color (ancestry population probably? and if it is the case, which population?).

Here is the way I did it:

Hi, so the thing that I try to do with plink, admixture, and R is to find the ancestry(ies) of some populations in my genomic data.

I just got the proportions for each individual with ADMIXTURE and I ploted these files in R using K=2 to K=5. After that, the plot that I got are with different colors depending on K value, so the first one is with 2 colors and the last one is with 5 colors. the question is now, how can I Know the meaning of each color in each individual proportion?

Thank you so much.

Dear Dirrank,

did you find the answer to your question?, because I'm in the same situation.

Thank you.

Dear edison.vazquez, you can try to use a new R packege called BITE. We have implemented 2 different functions to plot Admixture results.

Hello, did you find something?

Thank you.
