Major inconsistencies of inferred population genetic structure estimated in a large set of domestic horse breeds using microsatellites

Stephan Funk, Jose Luis Vega-Pla, Cristina Luis, Gus Cothran & Rytis Juras
STRUCTURE remains the most applied tool aimed at recovering the true, but unknown, population structure from observed microsatellite data or other genetic markers. About 30% of STRUCTURE-based studies could not be reproduced (Gilbert et al., 2012). Here we use a large set of data from 2323 horses from 93 domestic breeds plus the Przewalski horse, typed at 15 microsatellite markers, to evaluate how program settings, in particular the so far insufficiently evaluated number of replicates,...
