This post introduces three new improvements to the popular What are the Odds? tool: vertical display mode; improved suggested hypotheses; and ALT-drag to copy when in drag and drop mode.
The fifth post in a series aiming to surface features at DNA Painter that you might not be aware of. This time I’m focusing on different views within your chromosome map.
As of September 2023, it will be five years since I launched subscriptions at DNA Painter. In this article I’ll summarize why you might want to subscribe, and what you get if you do.
Today, the British testing company Living DNA announced that they’ve added a chromosome browser. In this post I’ll explain what the new feature does and give my first impressions of this first release. I’ll also explain how you can use this data in your DNA Painter chromosome map.
For my latest guest post, I’m pleased to welcome Tanner Tolman, a professional genealogist based in Utah.
