This repository contains several files that are helpful for reproducing the main figure of the Novembre et al 2008 ``Genes Mirror Geography in Europe'' paper.

The raw POPRES data must be accessed via dbGAP.

File descriptions:

==== Main files for plotting of PCA plot  ====

PCA.txt : File with basic results for plotting
        ID: The individual ID
        plabels:  Population labels
        alabels: Abbreviated label
        longitude: longitude used in study for that population
        latitude: latitude used in study for that population
        PC1: self-explanatory
        PC2: self-explanatory
        RotNS:  North/South coordinate after rotation of PCA (see methods)
        RotEW: East/west coordinate after rotation of PCA (see methods)

POPRESID_Color.txt : Color used for each individual in plot

==== Files for geographic plot ====

world_countries.rda : World polygon data
ColorTablePCmap.txt : Color used for each country in the geographic inset map

To generate the colored geographic map:
