DNA Lingo: SNPs, centiMorgans, and Haplogroups, Oh My!

  • Breaking down the “science” of DNA and how it can help genealogy research.

DNA Do-Over Month 4 Resources

This is a developing list and as we discuss this month’s topic we will add to this document and finalize it on April 30th.

  • National Human Genome Research Institute – Talking Glossary: Contains much more scientific terminology than the ISOGG Wiki, but still useful for DNA and genealogy research. Includes audio recordings by DNA experts for each concept!
