Explore your maternal heritage in the Encyclopedia of mtDNA Origins.
This morning, I got a bulk email from FTDNA about admin access. Advanced Access is not approximately what project administrators had prior to May 24, 2018. No, I am not granting Advanced access.
This is a quick guide to adjusting your privacy settings for project participation at Family Tree DNA. I, personally, take my privacy extremely seriously, and I hope your own seriously too.
23andMe is a DNA testing company. Their tests are used for both personal medical risk testing and for genetic genealogy.
Anzick-1, Anzick Boy, is a Paleo-Indian male child. His remains were found at a Clovis Culture site. He was one of two children found in 1968, at the site in south central Montana, USA. His death and remains date to between 12,707 and 12,556 years ago.
The number of DNA testing companies is growing. Y-chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) testing for direct paternal lineages remains the most reliable way to establish evidence of a relationship between two men in the most recent fifteen generations. This Y-DNA Company Comparison Chart covers all major companies in the industry.
X-chromosome DNA (X-DNA) for genealogy is usually used alongside autosomal DNA. However, its unique inheritance pattern is key to specific types of genealogy matching.
Autosomal DNA is now the most used test for personal ethnic origins and recent genealogy matching. It is also the most complex method. Each of the testing companies has their own proprietary matching method.
The number of DNA testing companies is growing. Mitochondral DNA (mtDNA) testing for direct maternal lineages remains the most reliable way to establish evidence of a relationship between two people who share a female ancestor in the most recent fifteen generations.
Ancient genomes from North Africa evidence prehistoric migrations to the Maghreb from both the Levant and Europe
We show that Early Neolithic Moroccans (∼5,000 BCE) are similar to Later Stone Age individuals from the same region and possess an endemic element retained in present-day Maghrebi populations
Two potential migratory routes followed by modern humans to colonize Eurasia from Africa have been proposed. These are the two natural passageways that connect both continents: the northern route through the Sinai Peninsula and the southern route across the Bab al Mandab strait.
A rare combination of mutations within mitochondrial DNA subhaplogroup T2e is identified as affiliated with Sephardic Jews, a group that has received relatively little attention.
We investigated this by using new, improved methods to sequence low-coverage genomes from 101 ancient humans from across Eurasia.
We analyzed ancient mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) from Scythians of the North Pontic Region (NPR) and successfully retrieved 19 whole mtDNA genomes.
