I have never hidden my opinions or mellowed my criticism on the genetic genealogy industry, even though I am a part of it. I designed the first dedicated microarray (chip) for genetic genealogy – The GenoChip. The GenoChip was designed … Continue reading
Half of the ancient genomes are poorly dated, which limits their usefulness. In other words, scientists spend a lot of time digging, finding skeletons, extracting the DNA from bones, sequencing it, and cleaning it, but in half of the cases … Continue reading
Living DNA was set up by David Nicholson and Hannah Morden in 2016. The firm is based in Frome, Somerset, UK. They had an average of three employees in the year ending December 2017. Now they have four. Since LivingDNA … Continue reading
It is not fair to pick on journalists especially not when genetics is involved. Genetics is a complex subject involving math, statistics, biology, bioinformatics, and, unfortunately, a substantial amount of emotions. Journalists are not scientists, they don’t claim to be … Continue reading
In the previous post I discussed the results of an Ashkenazic Jew produced by GPS Origins. As more and more people take the GPS Origins ancestry test that my lab built (Disclosure: I consult DDC) and make them public, we have a chance to take … Continue reading
Recently, we completed development of GPS2, an extension of the GPS tool (see FAQ here) that predicts the geographic origins of two-ways mixed individuals (e.g., an individual with British and Chinese parents). The genetics company DDC (conflict of interest statement: … Continue reading
