Project: DNA Innovators

Categories: DNA Project

The DNA Innovators Project
WikiTreer Roberta Estes and Innovators Team Leader Mags Gaulden
having a little fun time at RootsTech 2018.

The role of the DNA Innovators is to network with genetic genealogists both within WikiTree and in the global community, to drive innovation, and to help develop tools to be used in WikiTree to help others integrate their DNA results with their genealogical research. Innovators are bringing ideas and imagination to shape current and future DNA features on WikiTree.

Team Leaders: Mags Gaulden, Peter Roberts
Team Coordinator: Thom Anderson

This is a sub-project of the DNA Project. See the main project page for how to join our group. We would welcome your help!

Sub-Team Tasks

Features Team Tasks

  • YDNA
    • Answer YDNA-specific G2G questions.
    • Check profiles to see if the haplogroup is correct, e.g. R1b, but it should be R-M222. is the “R-” missing from M222?
    • Is their mitoYDNA ID formatted correct? Work with profile managers to update.
    • Post to G2G about Big Y DNA testing, most downstream SNPs recording of progenitor SNP ancestor.
    • Integrate haplogroup and SNP comparison from mitoYDNA.
  • mtDNA
    • Answer mtDNA-specific G2G questions.
    • Check to see if HVR1/2 FS tested results profile managers have identified their most recent ancestor, if so work to add?
    • Check for mitoYDNA ID, is it formatted correctly? Work with profile managers to update.
  • Autosomal DNA
    • Answer auDNA/autosomal-specific G2G questions
    • Work on Genesis integration.
    • Check for auDNA test results IDs, are they formatted correctly? Work with profile managers to update.
  • X-DNA
    • Answer x-chromosome/X-DNA-specific G2G questions.
    • Add X-DNA Confirmation back to main DNA Confirmation page.
    • Add X-DNA Confirmation example for two matching males and that triangulation is necessary when female is included.

  • Other
    • Liaison with Genetic Genealogy Industry Influencers

Projects Liaison Team Tasks

  • Determine how the DNA project can support these projects:
  • Name Studys
  • DNA Studys
  • SNP Projects
  • DNA Categorization Projects
  • Adoption Angels
  • Greeters
  • Data Doctors
  • Liaise with DNA Educators
  • Communicate significant work of all the Various DNA Project Teams to all relevant DNA Project Teams to ensure there is open communication.This will prevent two teams from working separately on the same goal or task or feature.
