A Genetic Picture of Me – 23 and Me Testing
I recently did 23 and Me genetic testing, which provides a ton of info on genetically linked health issues and traits, as well as genetic ancestry data. I’ll probably post something on the health data at some point, but I thought it would be fun to share the ancestry portion of my results. I was curious as to how they’d come out genetically, given that I’m what many people would call “1/4” Korean.
Reminder: I’m allowed to call myself a mutt. Other people, not so much. Jokes about my ancestors getting around, historically speaking, are fair game.😉 Click to embiggen. Set on Standard composition.
Did East Asian have to be color-coded yellow? For real?
This image shows information on my maternal haplogroup, or ancestry derived from mitochondrial DNA. The A4 designation reflects the fact that my mother’s mother was ethnically Korean. Explanation provided in the image. Again, click for a larger, more readable size.
