Join us to hear from Bryant McAllister, UI associate biology professor and associate chair for undergraduate education, who will illustrate the science underlying these genetic tests. Analysis of an individual's DNA provides a window into the past by revealing ancestral connections to regions across the globe, and direct comparisons of customer DNA may support historical records of a family genealogy.
