Abstract

The populations of the Western Cape region are mainly white, black (Xhosa) and the Cape Coloured (CC). The CC population are of mixed genetic background, from white, black, Khoisan and Oriental (Malay) origins. The CC is situated at some genetic mid-point between white and black groups for most genetic systems tested (1,2).
