Genetic self-testing and a professor from London

There are several companies out there ready to trace your ancestry if you are willing to donate some green bucks. And the quality on what you are getting back varies. I’ve never done myself for several reasons, the main being that I’m not particularly interested. I already know that my own genome is made up of parts from all over the place, and that it is all from Africa at some point anyway. And, also, it would not be OK to use my research-fundings to research my own kin-history. But this is a big thing, genetic self-testing. One scientist who has had a run-in with one of the more dubious companies in the field is Mark Thomas. He will be in Stockholm the 11th of October, telling a little bit about it. It is a good lecture if you are trying to navigate the jungle of genetic self-testing companies.
