Thanks for the help. I went to the library yesterday and entered my autosomal profile in the green boxes. However, my results were completely different from DNA Tribes. My top matches were: Garo(India), Saharawis(North Africa), Andalusians(Spain), Mozabites(Algeria), Podlasie(NE Poland), Berbers(Moroccan Arabs),Central Moroccan Berbers, Southern Moroccan Berbers, Scottish and Portuguese. My DNA Tribes results found an Average match with a sample from Calabria, Italy(Native Match) and a Strong Global Match with Chinese(Malaysia). I am Puerto Rican and DNAPrint 2.5 revealed that I'm 80% European, 12% African and 8% Native American. The results from Omnipop explained my genetic background better than those of DNA Tribes. Omnipop showed me where my African DNA came from whereas DNA Tribes did not show any African matches. I believe that Puerto Rico's Native-American DNA is more similar to East Asians such as the Chinese than to Northern Native Americans such as Apache or Navajo. With DNA Tribes, I thought since they had Central and South American Native-American databases that my Native American would find a match but no it matched with the Chinese from Malaysia.
I was much more pleased with the results from Omnipop than Tribes which I found to be very disappointing! I read that Chris separated his alleles and found his mother's and father's different contributions. However, I don't understand how. I thought the STR profile was autosomal and therefore not related to the sex chromosomes. Why does DNA Tribes list Allele 1 as X and Allele 2 as X. I know that XX is because I'm female but I thought this STR profile has nothing to do with sex chromosomes? I did split Allele 1 from Allele 2 when I ran them with Omnipop. Allele 1 revealed mostly Asian matches with a smaller E value (03)and Allele 2 revealed more African matches also with a smaller E value than both alleles combined. Is there any way to find out which allele is coming from the father or mother?
