Ancestry dataset update - More populations

Ancestry dataset update - More populations

BioCertica Content Team
We have expanded our ancestry dataset, which means we now have more information about populations across all of Africa and Europe, South America, and Asia.
Your results are now more refined and informative if you have done our Ancestry DNA Test.
BioCertica's goal is to continuously increase the size of our reference panel and increase the precision of our ancestry estimates. The current reference panel size grew by 150%. The following populations were either expanded or broken into new ones:


Dai People was expanded into Southeast Asia

South Asia: Indian Origin has been broken into South Asia: Punjabi, South Asia Gujarati, South Asia: Dravidian

Western European was expanded into Western and Northern European

Sardinian was expanded into South European

Oceania Bougainville was expanded into Oceania: Bougainville and Australian 

The following populations have been enriched with additional individuals in the reference panel: 

West African, Dardic Origin, Middle Eastern, Caucasus
