The Genetic Ancestral Analysis has been designed to give you an enhanced glimpse into your familial history. The unique analysis employs complex computational methods to give you a percentage based look at your genetic alignment with ethnic groups on our reference panel.
To determine individual admixture, customer data is compared to reference genotype sets. A reference data panel was created and population data has been sourced from the customer database (from individuals with a consistent history in particular regions), Human Genome Diversity Project, POPRES, 1000 Genomes, International HapMap Project, and the Estonian Biocentre Human Genome Diversity Panel. Samples which were not admixed were used as references, with outliers being removed from the data sets using a principal component analysis. The Admixture program was used to discern the variation between reference populations and to determine the ancestral backgrounds of selected individuals. Clusters were then delineated using this data and our reference panel was validated through testing against samples of confirmed origin.
