Hey Chris! Glad to see it worked for you. One thing about including all the cells. You will notice when you click "show frequencies" that if you include all of the data including the white cells, you are only being compared to 97 regions, rather than 167 - that is the significance of only inputting information into the green cells. THis is probably why your results came out so different from DNA Tribes. The main column you look at for your results is the one that has "Ascending order" on top - that is the column that has matched your results. Have you tried only doing the green cells? Does that data match DNA Tribes?
With regards to the other columns to the right. The Ellipse column corresponds to the dot number on the map. FOr example, if you click on one of the dots on the world map, for example dot number 37, corresponds with Arizona Hispanic, and so on. The Column in the middle corresponds to the populations and their rankings after you entered your data- without your data in the table that column shows all the populations listed as 1 - when you enter your data you will see how they become ranked. THe numbers in parenthesis are the different regions, for example there are different regions within portugal, so one region might be coded as a (6) and the other region of portugal might be coded as a (5) - I do not believe it is the size of the sample - I think the sample size for all the regions is much larger than any of the numbers in parentheses.
I am not certain what the cut off number is to make these numbers relevant, but I do know that 3.66E+09 is a closer match than 1.04E+ 14. The last two numbers are what seem to count in terms of rankings.
Also, I was told by Thomas Krahn, with DNA Fingerprint to split the numbers, as I described to Sasa, by doing this, he says the results become more reliable. Again, the important thing to split the CODIS Markers and compare the two maps for similiarities.
