What's up kurinja? It's been a while (nearly a decade). I can't remember the credentials to my old account, so I created a new one. Anyway, since taking that DNA test with iGENEA, I've had one done with 23andme. Below are the result.

They're living, breathing men and women, but they walk on all fours, just as we did four million years ago. And until this film was shot, they were hidden away, unseen by the outside world.

@Kureski- from your post it seems 23andme has better functionality than ancestryDNA, especially the region specific matches. Although, I think Balkans sample sizes may still be very small

I saw an article that talks about a 23andMe competitor that apparently does a "whole genome sequence" claiming ancestry companies like 23andMe analyze only 1% of the genome.

$600 USD is a bit expensive for me at the moment though, and I think the company doesn't have ancestry features, but with your entire genome you would in theory be able to use software or other companies to screen your DNA with others to compare how similar you are between each other.

-Veritas is lowering the cost of a full genome sequence from $999 to $599 and believes within two years it will be pricing in the $100–$200 range.

-The personal genetics company co-founded by Harvard scientist George Church thinks the price cuts will lead millions of consumers to seek their full DNA profile.

-Cheaper heritage and health tests from AncestryDNA and 23andMe from $99 to $199 have been purchased by millions, but a top Veritas executive said that is “like comparing a tricycle with a sports car.”

$600 USD is a ripoff especially since whole genome sequencing has become dirt cheap over time in comparison to what it was 50 years ago. Really it is that 1% (even less than that) of the genome that really distinguishes us, everything else is basically shared between humans or is thought to be useless (rapidly changing, etc)

IMHO, their ethnicity estimates continue to be rather "incomplete" as far as the Balkans go. Probably way more samples/data are required, and compared to other regions something seems to be missing. Let's take a look at Italy, as one example. Italy itself is broken down as follows (whereas we have simply: Greece & the Balkans --> Greece, Turkey & Albania):

- Northern Italy
- Sicily
- Southern Italy:
+ Calabria
+ Campania
+ Campania & Basilicata
+ Campania & Molise
+ Lazio & Campania
+ Puglia
+ Salerno
+ Umbria, Abruzzo & Lazio

- Sardinia

(On the other hand, if complete, this would imply that genetically/'ethnically' the entirety of the Balkans is more or less the same.)
