Summix2: A suite of methods to estimate, adjust, and leverage substructure in genetic summary data

Bioconductor version: Release (3.19)

This package contains the Summix2 method for estimating and adjusting for substructure in genetic summary allele frequency data. The function summix() estimates reference group proportions using a mixture model. The adjAF() function produces adjusted allele frequencies for an observed group with reference group proportions matching a target individual or sample. The summix_local() function estimates local ancestry mixture proportions and performs selection scans in genetic summary data.
