Remember when we said DNA was the latest, greatest thing in genealogy?
This is what’s next.
Bioinformatics is a hybrid discipline, focused on the application of mathemtics and computer and information sciences to data mine large collections of genomic data. In a laboratory setting, these disciplines are often brought together in order to analyze how protein chains refold in three dimensions, or for similar predictive endeavours. However, at Discovering New Ancestors our interest in the field lies in the application of Set Theory and Database Design in the service of genealogical research. You may prefer to use another term — "Computational Genealogy" — but whatever you call it, you'll find that our tools and practices will allow you to do more with your DNA test results than you may have thought possible. We're already in the process of breaking down 20-year brick walls with ours!
