    How ancestry works

    I want to know how dna works. Do they use samples of groups like on g25 cooridantes or do they use chromosome matchs or they use clusters ? Someone really know how it works ?

    Hi Tanchik

    If you are interested how it all works I suggest you have an quick perusal of the White paper 2020

    https://www.ancestrycdn.com/dna/stat...te%20paper.pdf

    I've covered it breifly before, although I ignore all of the potential problems with respect to the reference populations

    although I can't guarantee I haven't got the wrong end of the stick.........
