Several years after it was first requested, I have recently released a simple ‘cM slider’ as an option that can be turned on in any chromosome map at DNA Painter.
Category: New Features
This article introduces some improvements to chromosome maps at DNA Painter, including options to turn on megabase gridlines, improved keyline labelling and a redesigned individual chromosome view.
Last night I released an update with several enhancements to the DNA Coverage tool that I’ll list in this short post.
The coverage estimator is a new tool at DNA Painter that lets you build a tree or import a GEDCOM and then mark the people in that tree who have tested. It then estimates the DNA coverage for the root person based on the testers. In this post I explain how to use it.
Earlier in July 2022, AncestryDNA launched a new feature: Chromosome Painter. In this post I’ll introduce a new tool that allows you to extract segment data that you can use to paint population information in your DNA Painter chromosome map.
The Library of Matches is a new tool by Cody Ely with example shared segments for different known matches. This visualization of segments could help you distinguish between different relationship possibilities.
I recently added focus mode, a new feature in WATO that I hope will help you.
Bucketing is a new DNA Painter tool that can help you subdivide your segments based on match or segment lists of other relatives.
Here’s a summary of new features at DNA Painter that I’ve released in the last couple of weeks.
I’m pleased to release a new tool today called the Shared cM Investigator. Intended for those who have siblings tested, but not the parents of those siblings, the tool uses segments and a simple mathematical equation to estimate how much DNA the parent of those siblings might have shared with the match.
