    Wegene and Gedmatch vs. Ancestry Dna and 23andme

    Have been meaning to post this for some time. My 23andme and AncestryDna results are similar in the break down of my African ancestry to European. However, Wegene and some Gedmatch tests such GedrosiaDNA-K3 and have what I think are significantly different results. Would like to know if any here could offer a reason for the difference or which is more accurate. Also, any insights as to why 23andme found twice as much Ashkenazi admixture as all other test, 10% to about 5% or less.


    23andMe
    Sub-Saharan African - 54.9%
    European - 44.2%
    Ashkenazi 10.4%
    East Asian & Native American - 0.2%
    South Asian - 0.1%
    Unassigned - 0.6%

    Africa 55%
    Ivory Coast/Ghana 18%
    Senegal 10%
    Nigeria 7%
    Africa Southeastern Bantu 7%
    Trace Regions 13%
    Cameroon/Congo 5%
    Benin/Togo 5%
    Africa South-Central Hunter-Gatherers 2%
    Mali < 1%
    Europe 44%
    Great Britain 32%
    European Jewish 5%
    Trace Regions 7%
    Italy/Greece 3%
    Europe West 2%
    Scandinavia < 1%
    Finland/Northwest Russia < 1%
    Ireland < 1%
    West Asia < 1%
    Trace Regions

    All I can say is that, on WeGene, my African is also a bit smaller than on 23andme (15.31% v. 16.5%). I'd trust 23andme more, as their autosomic ancestry tool is said to be the best there is among the commercial testing companies.
