Can tellmeGen identify my Native American ancestry?
Although our database has ethnic groups distributed throughout the world, there are many populations that are not currently represented. For the moment, tellmeGen does not include a specific Native American category in our ancestry report.
In general, it is true that those populations that are geographically closer present, at the same time, greater genetic affinities. If you have known ancestry in any population not represented in our database, such as Native American, what you will observe in the report is that the assignment of your genetic composition has been distributed among those ethnic groups represented that are geographically closer.
The tellmeGen team of geneticists is continually working to improve the database and incorporate new populations. Remember that the platform is dynamic, and updates are included periodically without the need to take a sample and at no additional cost.
