Student Lounge – October 2022

Calling all students! Each month, we set time aside for our students to connect with their fellow classmates for an opportunity to discuss topics relevant to their online education goals. We are pleased to announce that we have just confirmed a special presentation for our October Student Lounge virtual meeting, which is scheduled for next week. Plan now to pull up a chair and join us for a short presentation by this month’s special guest, Jennifer Roodzant of Descendant Genealogy. 

Clustering DNA Matches with Gephi presented by Professional Genealogist, Jennifer Roodzant

Title: Clustering DNA Matches with Gephi to Pinpoint Genetic Networks 

Presentation Description: Have you ever had difficulty uncovering shared match groups in your DNA results? Have you spent hours looking for connections between you and your matches? Gephi is a graph and visualization platform that quickly and efficiently clusters shared matches into genetic networks. Say goodbye to the long days of sorting matches! You will leave with a toolkit for rapidly clustering matches in Gephi to identify the shared most recent common ancestors.
