Can tellmeGen identify Native American?
Although our database has ethnic groups distributed throughout the world, there are many populations that are not represented. For the moment, we don’t have 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 a known ancestry in some population not represented in our database, 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 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.
