This discussion class will walk you through the steps to analyze the test results that you have received. We will concentrate on the basic autosomal test that shows relative matches going back 4-5 generations. We will also discuss the Y chromosome and mitochondrial testing that examines the paternal and maternal lines, respectively. We will concentrate on tools, such as Leeds Analysis, Chromosome Browsers, and DNA Painter to analyze your results. We will examine the role of endogamy (marrying within a local community) in determining DNA relationships..
To best utilize this course, we suggest you have 8-10 hours per week to work on the projects and weekly homework assignments. After signing up, you will be asked to state your goals for the course and some of the objectives for the three weeks of class--research questions you would like to answer about your family. Tuition for this course is $200.
