Mega Population Score and Ethnic Panel

Postby Spindoc1000 » Mon Jun 06, 2016 10:25 pm

What does it mean that my Jewish Mega Population score is very high at 7.384E+10, but my Marker Ethnic Panel is blank?

In general, the Megapopulations ranking is more significant than the marker panel. Some markers are passed down and others are not, just as everyone in your family might have brown eyes but yours are blue. Your blue eyes came from someone in your ancestry. A sibling might have different markers but that doesn't mean you aren't related.

Hope this helps.
