    The dna tribes 5% rule

    I have heard anything above 5% with dna tribes is likely to be real . How valid is this ?

    You send your raw data to them for a fee and then they calculate your results.

    There's two different DNA Tribes sites, their own test and then their SNP one that you upload data to. The upload one is https://dnatribes-snp.com/t/snp-analysis
    Ethnogene: 51.4% NW European, 21.6% W European, 10.1% Southeastern African, 9.5% Southeast Asian, 4.4% South Asian, 2% Scandinavian, 1% East African
    Papertrail @ 2xggrandparents: 37.5% London, 25% Dorset, 25% Mauritius, 6.25% Netherlands, 6.25% Hampshire

    i have a dna tribes report, i've never heard that 5% rule, although I guess i've heard similar things about gedmatch. Are you on the fence about purchasing a report? They're interesting and thorough, but i didn't find my results to be especially accurate, personally, and many of the k36 calculators will provide you similar info (similarity maps) for free.

    What about the conclusion that x% rules are wishful thinking?

    I have seen many people adamantly sticking to a .30 or so result. I would say that's unrealistic, but some have been able to prove that with a paper trail or other evidence to support it.

    But whatever makes people happy I suppose. Regardless of what anyone else thinks.

    Sorry Firemonkey. I am off topic I was just wondering if that was a testing company. My apologies.

    I've got reports. I was just wondering about anything above 5% not being noise. KingJohn seems to have mentioned this several times.
