We are happy to share, for the first time, local ancestry-informed frequency data for 14,804,207 bi-allelic SNPs within the Latino/Admixed American sample of gnomAD v3.1 (n=7,612). This initial release of gnomAD local ancestry inference (LAI) data contains estimated alternate allele counts, allele numbers, and allele frequencies partitioned by continental ancestries for variants in the Latino/Admixed American population. The samples classified as Latino/Admixed American by gnomAD’s global ancestry inference have highly heterogeneous, admixed ancestry,1 and local ancestry inference resolves these individuals’ admixed ancestry into Amerindigenous, African, and European haplotypes.
