  • myOrigins Reference Populations

    I'd really like to see their reference populations for myOrigins. When will this information be released?

      Thanks, gerlyons!

      So, myOrigins is only based on these 36 reference populations?

      Population Finder reference samples for America were: Maya, Pima, Colombian, Karitiana and Surui.

      myOrigins reference samples for America are only: Karitiana and Surui?

      Is that correct? If anyone could provide any further insight I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!!

        It must be more than 1353 samples in all?? And if so, how did they pick these particular samples?

              Hello , I have seen my results about myOrigins so I have no data available in table (you can see on the picture )

              I wonder why ?

              Thanks

                Hopefully the white paper will go more into the reference populations. But there are very few samples, and this part of the problem with the current MyOrigins.

                    No data available

                    To the person who asked about why there is "no data available" in the matches section, I believe it is because noone that matches with you has given permission to FTDNA to share their results. Very frustrating. Out of all my matches, only 3 are sharing.. and yet FTDNA said only 1% have opted out.

                      I hope so too. What I would also like to see is how each of those people in the reference populations appear in myOrigins. Very few populations are 100% anything and seeing the results could bring to light why some people have certain populations in their results.

                        Does anyone else only get the audio? I'm not seeing the video although I've allowed the Windows-blocked plug ins; running Windows 8 on a PC.

                          What we need is a few ancient autosomal dna samples from the Isles to compare with ours to see how much or how little the dna has changed over the millennia.

                            The video doesn't start for a couple of minutes.
