DNA projects

From ISOGG Wiki

A DNA project collects and collates DNA test results in order to make comparisons with other project members. The results are usually displayed on a dedicated DNA project website, either hosted on the website of the testing company or on a private website. DNA projects are run by volunteer project administrators, sometimes in conjunction with one or more co-administrators, and receive no financial remuneration from the testing companies. The following are the main types of DNA project:

Geographical DNA projects

Haplogroup projects

Surname projects

Surname projects have varying remits. Some projects, such as those run by members of the Guild of One-Name Studies will look at a surname on a global basis. Other surname projects, especially those for high-frequency surnames, are restricted to specific countries or regions.
