Since I first launched DNA Painter, I’ve had a steady stream of requests to include the locations of traits within chromosome maps. Last month I finally implemented this after a dream in which I did just that! Background I find when I try to explain chromosome mapping to non-genealogists, they often ask tricky questions. Such
In exactly one week’s time I’ll be in Salt Lake City for Rootstech. It will be the second time DNA Painter has exhibited. A lot has changed since 2018, when my newly created company was awarded a booth within ‘Innovation Alley’ as part of the DNA Innovation contest. This year, I’m looking forward to demonstrating
I’ve made a new page listing upcoming and previous lectures, webinars and exhibitions.
Next up for me is a lecture in my home town of Belfast for Genetic Genealogy Ireland on February 15th.
I realize lots of people have now tried Cluster Auto Painter (CAP), and not all of them will have experience of chromosome mapping or DNA Painter. Here I show the mechanics of how to use DNA Painter to annotate and investigate your clusters, including assigning them to your maternal or paternal side.
I’m pleased to introduce Cluster Auto Painter (CAP), an early step towards automated chromosome mapping. CAP aims to help you dig deeper into your DNA test results by letting you annotate and examine your clusters in a chromosome map.
This article first appeared on the Medium website but has been moved to this blog… Chromosome mapping is the process of using the data from matches to assign segments of your chromosomes to specific ancestors — from grandparents to more distant forebears. DNA Painter is a simple web-based tool for chromosome mapping that I built
