We are starting a new series called Research Like a Pro with DNA Q&A. Study group and eCourse members ask questions, and we answer them with a short video. Today, the question is: “what is the significance of the first cluster in an AutoCluster or Collins Leeds Method chart?”
I answer the question by showing an example of a MyHeritage AutoCluster chart where the clusters are ordered by size (number of matches in the cluster), then reclustered by supercluster (showing links between clusters). I also discuss the settings for setting up a Collins Leeds Method cluster chart so that the clusters are ordered the way you want them.
To review the settings for the Collins Leeds Method Tool and what each option means, go to https://genetic.family/Help/CLM.
