Re: Wanted, DNA testing

Actually, I've been thinking about this for a while and remembered that there was a reason why my brother did the test & I didn't. There are two kinds of DNA testing, one is maternal and the other is paternal. Because the paternal line is done on the Y chromosome, women, clearly, can not have this test done. When a woman does a generic dna test to find heritage, she can only look at the mother's side. So, a generic dna test will not give her answers to the question of her father.

I know there is an interesting project going on in the Netherlands at Erasmus University, where they look at ancestry of different regions in Europe for instance. I believe this is an interesting idea
Whoa .. I stumbled upon a Club of Amsterdam and read up about this Dutch Uni Erasmus MC ( Manfred Kayser ).

Interesting Genetic Map of Europe he has produced ( a little dated ).

Quote:
According to Prof. Dr. Manfred Kayser: "The new method is at present based on a large number of autosomal DNA markers. These can only be determined from relatively large amounts of undamaged DNA material, for example, in forensic cases in which an unknown person is to be identified on the basis of DNA from a body or parts of a body.

The next step is to determine the minimum number of autosomal DNA markers necessary to predict the European region of origin. This should in the future allow making a reliable decision also when only DNA of limited quantity and quality is available."
Quote:
Genetically speaking, Finns and Italians are the most atypical Europeans. There is a large degree of overlap between other European ethnicities, but not up to the point where they would be indistinguishable from each other. Which means that forensic scientists now can use DNA to predict the region of origin of otherwise unknown persons (provided they are of European heritage)
Quote:
The Swiss population is entirely subsumed by the French one, similarly, the Irish population almost doesn’t show any characteristics that would distinguish it from the British one.

British and Irish insularity probably explains why so much of their genetic area is not shared with their closest European cousins, i.c. the Norwegian / Danish / Dutch cluster.
