Advertising for DNA testing companies proliferates the media these days, but many individuals spit or swab, but then wonder how to get beyond their ethnicity results. The first questions usually asked regarding genetic testing are: “Where should I test?” and “I got my results, now what?” We will explore these questions and more in this presentation as an introduction to the world of DNA and interpreting test results. More advanced tools will be introduced that are fun and give the researcher real information they can use. If you have tested, review your results before the session.
