Topic Genetics / Commercial Genetic Testing (Part 1/2)
Telegram translate :
An SWR podcast on DNA origin analysis (genealogy) using the example of teacher Annika
( German- has translate feature)
How was the result? Where are you from?
1️⃣Family Tree DNA: Türkiye/Caucasus (Georgia) and around Chile
2️⃣Lukas Maczuga: Russia
3️⃣Stephan Schiffels: Poland and Baltic States
Three analyses, three different results.
What epidemiology is to virology, genealogical research is to genetics. A statistical discipline based on a fundamentally flawed 'science'.
Topic Genetics / Commercial Genetic Testing (Part 2/2)
Commercial genetic tests are not only offered for genealogical research (population studies; with SNP tests), but also, for example, to identify allegedly genetic diseases (gene panel tests).
With the knowledge of constantly changing genes, so-called 'gene errors' also repair themselves and with knowledge of the cause of cancer (keyword: Ryke Geerd Hamer), the tests are to be seen in a very critical light and often result in fear/uncertainty and not infrequently in preventive measures (e.g. operations), since people trust a test result.
What is there to record about the DNA analyses?
  • Of the samples submitted, not the entire genome is analyzed, but only certain genetic markers (approx. 2-3 million base pairs). It is merely a purely statistical analysis based on correlating markers for diseases (polygenic risk score)
or properties that are stored in a database.
-The result can differ significantly depending on the platform due to, among other things:
a) different laboratories
b) different platform algorithms (which change)
c) different platform database assets (which change)
In this way, the result can subsequently change in completely new directions.
It is not uncommon for the collected personal information and analyzed samples to be passed on to other companies and authorities.
In this context, if you measure a lot, you measure a lot of crap.
