    1. Analyzing results for participants in project
    2. Richard Cottrell
    3. To All: Let's consider quite a few examples of different participants results and practice matching and placing them in a group. For the example I will simply label the participants 1,2,3,4,5,6, and 7.

But taking it slow and trying to stay focused one can figure out who is a match and who is not a match. The results show that: # 1 and 2 and #5 are a perfect match, then #6 is a 41 out of 43 marker match to #1, #2, and #5. Likewise, #2 and #3 are a perfect match, then #7 is a 40 out of 43 marker match to #2 and #3. So for Group 1 there is # 1, 2, 5, and 6. And for Group 2 there is # 2, 3, and 7. Also if you notice between the participants there are quite a few markers that are the same number. That is not unusual because no matter what lineage the individuals are from they all have one thing in common, they are all males and all human. So there will be some markers be the same because of that commonness. Looking at the results there is now a Group 1 and Group 2 and one can ask, is there any chance the two groups are related to each other? Well, comparing a particpant from each group (the perfect matches) it can be seen that Group 1 to Group 2 only match 24 out of 43 markers. Not close enough to be considered any type of relation. In comparing 43 marker test a good guideline to follow is anything above 39 markers would/could be related and anything below 39 markers would/could not be related. Richard
