quick question. say you have an individual, and a few siblings, genotyped. but you don't have their parents or parents' relatives. is there is a way to reconstruct which homologs came from which parent (assume they are basically same ethnicity)? the way thought would be to look for methylation patterns on imprinted genes where the bias is always toward one sex or the other, and use those loci as tags. deas?

based on their gender we could probably look at traits that are more x-linked or more y-linked maybe

Well, I enjoyed contributing to science in a way that is less emotionally wrecking than analyzing a nice, well collected dataset and basically get a "neener neener neener guess again" response from it.

(So, I just had a project that did not quite work out).

I'd be up for it again, so I'll keep a look out.

So ~400 more people have added me on Google+ than on twitter. So?

G+ feels like a conversation. Twitter is a news feed :)

Go for it. 23andme don't service South Africa yet, so you'll probably have more luck aiming for the expat community.

I was away and wondered what is up with 23andme? I too have bought kits for all my family members and would not like there data to go away if they stop paying.And Paul, on another note I have many relatives from Ireland. My great great is buried in Derry. I visited the grave a few years ago. So the Irish DNA Atlas link was fascinating. thanks

people ask me semi-personal things via facebook and email a lot in terms of what i don't say about myself. this is especially common for non-westerners for some reasons (their names and usage of english obvious indicators). i know people are curious, it's human nature. but if i omit, it's cuz it's none of your business. though the few readers of my weblog that i've met are strangely always shocked when i mention stuff which has never shown up on the internet in regards to my life.

Randall, I suspect that we will eventually. Just as regional differences are present in the US but slowly are converging.
