The Basics of DNA Testing and Analysis By Kathleen Fernandes
This presentation will address the basics of autosomal DNA testing along with an overview of the major testing companies and the information they provide. This presentation will also provide recommendations on testing strategies and include tips on organizing and interpreting DNA test results 
Kathleen Fernandes earned her Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from Stanford University and worked as a systems analyst in designing IT systems for the Department of Defense. Since retiring, she has been actively pursuing her Portuguese roots and became interested in genetic genealogy as a way to break through the brick walls she encountered in her research. She is particularly interested in tools and techniques for analyzing DNA data in endogamous populations.
