Seminar Description

This seminar provides a hands-on, in-depth exploration of the many tools available via the free-third party website GEDmatch. The tools substantially increase the user’s ability to derive meaningful information from autosomal DNA test results. This is a hands-on course using the participant’s own DNA test results. Requires participants to bring their own laptop. Two sessions.
