Tues. Feb 13th 2018 8.00pm

 

Ed Gilbert - Update on the Irish DNA Atlas. -

Ed will be presenting the latest results of the Irish DNA Atlas, a DNA cohort of individuals with four generations of genealogical data. The Irish DNA Atlas is a joint project between the Royal of College of Surgeons in Ireland and the Genealogical Society of Ireland, combining genetic and genealogical information. The latest results of the Irish DNA Atlas demonstrate the subtle sub-structure within Ireland, with genetic groups reflecting past historical and demographic borders. In addition, the researchers show a significant subset of Irish and British individuals with joint Irish and British genetic ancestry which is reflective in their ancestral surnames. Lastly, the Irish DNA Atlas has shown the existence of a significant proportion of Norwegian-like ancestry within Ireland, which dates back to the times of the Viking invasions.
