admix-kit: Toolkit for analyzing genetic data of admixed populations#

admix-kit is a Python library to facilitate analyses and methods development of genetics data from admixed populations.

This is designed to be a python library to facilitate analyzing admixed populations. We have also created command line interface (CLI) for main functionalities.

admix-kit can be installed with

# Install admix-kit with Python 3.7, 3.8, 3.9
git clone
cd admix-kit && pip install -e .


admix-kit is still in beta version undergoing frequent updates, we welcome any feedbacks and bug reports.

Now, let us jump to quick start with python or CLI.

admix-kit has been used in the following projects:

  1. On powerful GWAS in admixed populations. Nature Genetics (2021).

  2. Causal effects on complex traits are similar across segments of different continental ancestries within admixed individuals. medRxiv (2022).
