Living DNA results

Last edited:
Hello Guys.

I haven't a test of "Living DNA", but, IMO, I think that it's more accurate to people that have British ancestry.


Said that, that’s the way that I interpret all my my autosomal results scored to Central or North Europe:


FTDNA:

Hallstatt’s Celts, with traces of germanic peoples: 16% + 4% = 20%


MyHeritage:

Hallstatt’s Celts, with traces of germanic peoples: 14.1% + 11.3% = 25.4%


LM Genetics:

Hallstatt’s Celts, with traces of germanic peoples: 29%


Of course, I'm not a specialist, and I am seeing the things by the point of view of an Iberian. LOL.


Great Night dear friends :)

LivingDNA
Nothing different from what I know from other testing companies:
90,2% European
4,8% Middle East/North Africa
5% SSA (Sub Saharan African)

How long does it take to get the free results?

Well Salento.
I uploaded MyHeritage and paid USD 39.00. The results were ready in about 2 hours or less.
The time it takes for them to make it available with free upload I can't tell
Cheers :)

I have the original, but later I uploaded for free AncestryDNA, ... a year + later, is still “Testing”,

I must have Tons of DNA in me :grin:

Hi Salento,
LOL. I uploaded it on 7/29/2019, when I got the new results from the “MyHeritage Ancestry + Health” kit. The “status” since then was “no matches had been found”. After I saw @KingJohn's post, I visited the site out of curiosity and saw that they changed the Dashboard completely and the status of my kit changed to “testing”. What you need to do now is to order a free purchase and then you will receive an email like this:

I believe that once you receive the email, your results will appear in about an hour, as occoured in case of @Tardisblue.
Cheers :)

PS: Soon after I paid for the upgrade and received an email as follows:

In less than two hours everything was ready

Thanks, I did it :)
Got partial results,
but when I click on it they want money.
In my case, getting a new Kit with the new Chip is a much better deal.

I’ll think about it.

Hello Salento. I agree with you. The best alternative is to purchase a new kit for testing with the new chip. All the "big" ones in the market updated their chips in 2019.

This was the case of Gene by Gene (FTDNA) and MyHeritage, for example. Since the beginning of March 2019 MyHeritage DNA done an upgrade to a new and more advanced DNA chip.

The chips that now is used for reading DNA samples in their lab and converting them to digital data are developed by Illumina, a company considered to be the “Intel” of DNA processing. These chips are produced with very sophisticated technology. They are not electronic chips but are made of glass slides harboring millions of tiny beads. Each bead is coated with synthetically generated DNA strands of about 50 nucleotides each that serve as probes. When the DNA of a customer is placed on a chip, it binds with the probes and generates an optical signal that is read by laser using lab devices produced by Illumina. This is a simplistic description of what goes on behind the scenes at the lab. See the video below:


Until recently, MyHeritage DNA tests were processed using Illumina’s Omni chip. To provide their customers with a more robust and powerful analysis, they decided to upgrade to a new and more advanced custom-designed version, based on Illumina’s Global Screening Array (GSA) chip. The process of designing the content of the new chip and working with Illumina for them to manufacture it for them took more than a year.

My results displayed in 28th july, 2019 already were processed using Illumina’s Global Screening Array (GSA) chip. Because of this I believe that the raw data I uploaded to LivingDNA is more accurate and, at least for me, LivDNA results must be considered precise, even beeing an upload of data raw of another company.

Cheers :)

Ok Duarte, You’ve convinced me to get the new MyHeritage Kit instead.

if I don’t like my results, I’m going to totally blame you! LOL

(Seriously)
:grin:

Precise or not, I already tested with LivDna.

Salento That is so cool👍
Acording to the map you score some west balkan region
a remmants from messapi 🤔😉

Hi Salento.
You still have a chance to think about it. Next I post all supported ethnicities:

If you still want to purchase the Kit, please, don't kill me if the results do not suit you. LOL :petrified::grin:(y):)
