The Mexican Mestizo populations genome

Accidentally stumbling upon this paper about the Mexican genome study.

The Mexican people have already ventured into their genome since 2009! Analysis of genomic diversity in Mexican Mestizo populations to develop genomic medicine in Mexico, published in PNAS 2009.

Although the sample size was not very big and the genotypes were done on a platform with only 100000 SNPs, they started this nine years already.

Anonymous blood samples from 300 non-related and self-defined Mestizos and 30 Amerindian Zapotecos were collected in 7 states in Mexico: Guanajuato, Guerrero, Sonora, Veracruz, Yucatan, Zacatecas, and Oaxaca (ZAP). Genotyping was performed according to the Affymetrix 100K SNP array protocol…

May be there are several other publications coming out after this one?


HFS+ File system is NOT case-sensitive but case-preserved!

  • On MacOS system, cloned a git repository with two directories: 1) Assignment and 2) assignment. [Notice the A vs a].
  • Couldn’t find the folder “Assignment” locally
  • Remote git seems to have this folder.
  • Tried to find out whether local git repository was not updated or not.
  • Checked the commit ID, checked the log and confirmed that the local repository is up-to-date!
  • OMG … what happened!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Tried to check whether the correct git command was used. Read about git fetch, git pull, etc, etc.
  • Feeling frustrated.
  • Got no work done.
  • Suspicious that may be there’s some problem with case-insensitive on MacOS. Therefore, tried Google “macos filename case sensitive”.
  • Finally, found the answer to the problem on Google


See the result below.


case insensitive macos
case-insensitive but case-preserved
