UGA DNA Special Interest Group

DNA Helix
Please join us Tuesday, November 22nd, at 7:00 pm for the monthly DNA SIG meeting. Stephanie Saylor will present "How Might I Use Mitochondrial DNA."

Stephanie will discuss Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) matching, what is realistic, and what can be done to help bridge the gap of knowledge we all struggle with on our maternal lines. She will additionally demonstrate how to navigate through FamilyTreeDNA to consider pathways that might be utilized to answer various questions.  While the class is focused on mtDNA, Stephanie will also address how autosomal DNA it is augmented by understanding a match’s haplogroup, one's own haplogroup, or appropriate research plans. 

The DNA SIG meets under the direction of Stephanie Saylor, who holds a degree in biology with an emphasis in neuroscience.  She combines her love of genealogy with a background in genetic research to put together presentations for this group. 

Presentations are facilitated online through GoToWebinar.  Participants are welcome to ask questions throughout, and the recordings are made available for UGA member viewing. For additional information, or to register, please visit the UGA website.
