Black People : DNA by Ancestry admixture test - Black People ...

Now this is a question for those of you with some expertise in this genetics stuff - exactly what does the test result prove? I'd originally thought it would basically give me an idea of the proportions in my ethnic background as in how many % black, native American etc that I am. Now I've become a little confused by the fact that apparently siblings can end up with different results - does this mean the test is really determining your own individual mix - I've heard tell of white sperm and black sperm coming from a mixed father, but have no idea if that's scientifically possible. I've also [more...]

Polish Genetics and Anthropology Blog: My top (European) genome ...

MDS/PCA plots and inferred ancestry tests are great for uncovering the various ancestral components that make up your genome, but they won't necessarily show who your best overall genetic matches are within the project. For that sort of thing it's necessary to run pairwise comparisons between individuals based on genome-wide Identity by State/Descent (IBS/IBD) sharing. Below are my IBS results, showing my top 20 matches from the Eurogenes 500K BGA Project. The first set is based on 500,000 SNPs, with 30,000+ markers removed during quality control (for example, due to poor call rates). The [more...]

Based on her research in this area, Dr. Nelson writes about the complex interpretation of the results of genetic genealogy testing by African-Americans and black British.  Rather than completely altering their preconceived biographical narratives based on the results of testing, many people struggle to mesh genetic results with these narratives.  From the abstract: “While there is some acquiescence to genetic thinking about ancestry, and by implication, ‘race’, among African-American and black British consumers of genetic genealogy testing, test-takers also adjudicate [more...]

Ancestry – Native American Genealogy & DNA Testing - Indian Blankets

For those who feel they have Native American heritage, or come from a long line of tribal families, DNA testing can help to determine their genetic background in relation to the Native American genes. Although this testing can help people learn more about their lineage, the modern tribes of today usually require that people have at least one grandparent or great-grandparent who was Native American. If people cannot prove this, regardless of DNA testing, many tribes will reject them nonetheless. Many people are just truly interested in their family’s heritage and background, and may also [more...]

Technology Review: A Genetic Christmas Story

Some people may have received an unusual gift this holiday season: an ancestry testing kit that uses a small swab of DNA to shed light on near and ancient family history. It sounds, at first, like a novelty item. But the kit may provide long-term assistance to scientists who are hoping to track the history of the human race. In one project, spearheaded by National Geographic Society and IBM, participants buy a kit for $99.95, scrape some skin cells from the inside of their cheek, and send the samples in for analysis. Once the DNA is processed, participants learn their haplogroup -- the [more...]

The Duck of Minerva: Who are the British?

The tribes of England south of the Thames and along the south coast during Caesar's time all had Belgic names or affiliations. Caesar tells us that these large intrusive settlements had replaced an earlier British population, which had retreated to the hinterland of southeast England. The latter may have been the large Celtic tribe, the Catuvellauni, situated in the home counties north of the Thames. Tacitus reported that between Britain and Gaul "the language differs but little." The common language referred to by Tacitus was probably not Celtic, but was similar to that spoken by the Belgae, [more...]
