Concerns about the privacy of your genetic data are natural. I try my best to satisfy all your concerns.

The raw genetic data and ancestry information that you send me will not be shared with anyone. Only ancestry facts that you explicitly allow me to publicly disclose, for example in this spreadsheet, will be made public but associated only with your project ID.

Your data will be used only for ancestry analysis. No analysis of physical or health/medical traits will be performed.

The individual ancestry analysis published on this blog will be done using an ID of the form HRPnnnn known to only you and me. You have the option to keep that ID private, or to interact here using only that ID, etc.

  1. Dear Zack, i have only basic knowledge of genetics. could you please explain your data in plain english? thank you.
