If you've updated your results following our 2020 Panel Update, you might notice that your results look very different. Our data set has expanded dramatically this means that in addition to being more accurate due to its size, this panel is more representative of different regional populations.
We have been able to ‘tidy up’ the small percentages you may have had in the previous version of your results, which were what we call ‘noise’ - small amounts of DNA which we previously weren't sure where to put, and ended up in a 'best guess' category.
The recent updates have allowed us to filter out populations that we are not confident in being true, creating a more focused representation of results. This may result in populations with small percentages (usually 5% or less) being absent from the updated results
