Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is an interview with one of our Research Like a Pro with DNA eCourse members, Allison Kotter. In this series, Allison shares her experience studying each lesson in the course and how she has applied the lessons to her own family. This episode covers the assignments for lessons 5 and 6. Allison tells about doing locality research for her project in Alabama and Texas. She also talks about studying locations in DNA match’s trees, migration, and ethnicity. Lesson 6 is all about exploring DNA tools and methodology. Allison discusses the Genetic Affair Autocluster and AutoTree, as well as GEDmatch segment triangulation.
