I recently got back my 23andme results and it was completely different from my ancestry dna results.

Recently people have been complaining about 23andme's accuracy after they did a bunch of changes.

Personally I think ancestry dna was much more accurate according to what I know about my family, what are your opinions?

(I know this place is mostly banter, I wanted to make this thread on /his/ but they banned me last time I did and I know a bunch of you lads took these tests)

West European for ancestry dna is labeled as "french and german" while 23 and me calls refers to it more specifically as french and german

23 and me doesn't make a distinction between and irish and british dna like ancestry dna does

They can do absolutely nothing with it and I came up negative for any variant for genetic diseases so if an insurance company did get their hands on it, there would be zero problems

>>53260344
You didn't know this before it came out negative though

True, it is a risk, but according to the company the information will never be released, but now I have extra peace of mind as there is no damaging info on it

Are you incredibly pale, have light brown slightly wavy hair, a large straight nose, a heavy brow ridge, large blue eyes and stand at 6'1?

I think the ancestry dna test is more accurate though, I know at least half my ancestors came from Germany, I think my irish dna made 23 and me mistake it as British

oddly enough, it said some of my genes for height were derived from neanderthals... those must have been tall neanderthals

>>
>>53261146
I would trust ancestry dna more as well, it's likely the mistake in British dna was the combination of your german and Irish heritage

The North African could be a misread of your Iberian as well.

Autosominal testing is only as good as the base of samples they are comparing yours to. 2andme have completely fouled theirs up.

You cannot use samples from people of non-homogenous ethnic groups if you want to determine a persons ethnicity. As most New Worlders are at least 2 or more ethnicities, and most do not really know much about their ancestry beyond 2-3 generations, and because their declaration of their ethnicity is taken into account in the filing of their genetic data, and is in many cases inaccurate. All future comparissons are then innacurate and all results are skewed.

The bigger the database, and more corrupt and inaccurate the results.

These sites are now pure marketing with a shiny interface. What you can use them for is raw gnome data, then use realistic calculators, or hire a professional to analyze it, and you can find relatives.

But the ancestry percentages given by these sites are absolute rubbish, and get worse the more time passes and more people are added to the database.
