CODIS & DNA Tribes

I realized that the CODIS & DNA Tribes stuff might not belong in Articles & Interesting Links. I did receive a response from my 2nd email to DNA Tribes about Gram's results. They believe that it's a combination of the admixture and not having matching samples in their database at this time. It really pays to ask questions as they have offered me 2 free upgrades as their database grows

I ordered the CODIS test, and I am waiting for my results. I wonder if it will help me?

Tribes Results

Hi Greg,

If you check in the DNA & Genealogy Forum there are a few of us who are "playing" with putting markers into a few programs, Omnipop & the RCMP Database to see if we can learn anymore (a debatable, but fun process). By looking at the values of the alleles for Gram's results I think I figured out which was from each parent based on how she described her parents. The values of the markers on the one allele is really unusual (her mom). The other has a greater alignment toward African, mix them together and Gram's marker values come out with the East Indian results

I have seen your post, Sonia. I have tried to get individual frequencies from the RCMP site. However, the results are limited to racial groups and the matches are between 1 in 10^18 to 1 in 10^27.

Allele Frequencies

Greg,
If you can download the Omnipop, the first sheet is the main page & you can put the alleles in individually. The second sheet is the data page & it shows frequencies of the alleles among the 179 populations the program has in its database. You still end up with outrageous numbers, but I guess that's what makes the CODIS markers so unique & useful for forensic work.

Hi Sonia,

I have downloaded Omnipop from the following:

http://www.uni-duesseldorf.de/WWW/M...y/database.html

http://www.dna-fingerprint.com/modul...download&cid=2

The results from DNAtrobes seem to be better. However, Omnipop is more flexible. I can look at the data that I want to with Omnipop. The only way that I can get new results from DNAtribes is to order an update for about $30. I am going to look at Omnipop in detail when I have time. Examining the maps given by DNAtribes. I find good agreement with my surname research. I live in Northeastern United States. They put me in the northern part of that region while I live in the southern part. This maybe due to the ancient Native American markers which are often put in Canada or Mexico depending on which markers are left out. My Old World tribal affiliation on my father's side and surname has always suggested a connection between Silesia and Perth. Historically, this is associated with the Volkerwanderwung.

Quote:
By the 3rd century AD various German tribal confederations, all of whom will leave a lasting mark on European history, are ranged along the natural borders of the Roman empire. They have settled in the territories east of the Rhine and north of the Danube and Black Sea. From here, in the great upheavals of the 4th and 5th century (known as the Völkerwanderung, 'migration of the peoples'), they will move throughout [Western] Europe.
The large values for Romanian and Mediterranean regions seem to match the 16224 value in my mtDNA, and the presence of Sub-Saharan African autosomes matches with my L1c mtDNA. I guess I will find out more later.

Hi Greg,
I snipped off part of your post. Tribes changed the way they report results a little bit since my August results. You have 2 values listed next to each area, what do they signify? Gram's results only showed one value, but I haven't noticed that they added any additional data for their African and Near Eastern Region so I'm holding off on an upgrade. Gram's ABD2.5 was 82% Sub-Saharan African & 18% European. While her DNA Tribes scores for World Region listed Sub-Saharan Africa first, the value was less than 0.45.

It's great you have the genealogical and historical paper trails to compare to your results!

I normalized my results so that the numbers add up to 100%.

I work with Omnipop, and it is clear that there is some racial profiling done. There results are more like ABDNA 2.5. Also, my most likely groups were different than DNA tribes.

Omnipop CODIS -
7 CAUCASIAN (Virginia, Swiss, Alabama, other types)
PORTUGESE
SCOTTISH
3 BRAZILIAN (non black, other types, black)
3 HISPANIC (American, Michigan. Other types)
4 N AFR (TUNISIAN, MOROCCAN ARAB, MAGHREB, CANARY ISLAND)
10 AFRO AMERICAN (Florida, Alabama, Canada, Connecticut, Virginia, other types)
Michigan Native American

D8S- INDIA//AFR/BASQUE
D21- CAUCASIAN//WEST MEDIT/SE ASIA
D7S- PUNA/SPAN/NW AFR.//NAT AMERICAN
CSF- TUNISIAN/CAUCASIAN/INDIA/NAT AMER
D3S - CAUCASIAN
TH0-CAUCASIAN//AFRO AMER
D13- ALSAKA/INDIA//N&W AFR/AFRO AMER/INDIA
D16- CAUCASIAN/ADMIX AMER//NW AFR/SE EURO/NAT AM
VWA - S ASIAN//AFRO AMER
TPO- CAUCASIAN VARIOUS REGIONS
D18- N&E AFR/AFR SPAN/APACHE//NAT AMER/HISPAN
D5S- N&E AFR/INDIA/POLISH//AFRO AMER/ANGOLAN
FGA - N. AFR/SPAN//INDIA/YEMEN/ALASKA


Did you try to add up and group all of the regions?

Updates are funny, maybe I should have summarized one locus as

D21- CAUCASIAN//EAST MEDIT/MACAU

I wonder when they use geographic location or region?
