Re: African Ancestry Questions
In Response To: Re: African Ancestry Questions ()

My question is less about whether they would be sued or if they have relatively sound service, which I am sure they as I believe the others are that are oft mentioned. The question is more about whether they show 1st, 2nd and 3rd tribe possibilities and the basic framework of selection.

They also use 394 and YAP which are not part of the std 12 marker. So I am also curious as to how they would do complete analysis only service if those to markers are not in the 12 marker information they request for the analysis only service.

Note that other services will give multiple results where your history may be and you certainly provide more than 7 markers (in some cases over 50) to have a clearly view of where one may be from. The Bantu PhD study is a good example, where they use 7 markers and clearly show the prevalence all over west and south Africa.

I'm curious what they actually provide when they send you the results.
