DNA Discovery Using Gephi

Enjoy a special aspect of our Student Life here at the International Institute of Genealogical Studies by joining us over on our new YouTube channel with our featured speaker, Jennifer Roodzant of DescendantGenealogy.com, as she shares a brilliant way to sort and discover DNA matches quickly with graphing on Gephi.org. This session was hosted by Gena Philibert Ortega during our monthly Student Lounge event in October. Expect to see more of Jennifer at GenealogicalStudies.com in the future! 

Be sure to check out the DNA Discovery Using Gephi with Jennifer Roodzant video on our YouTube channel!

Presentation 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.

Biography: Jennifer Roodzant is a professional genealogist and speaker specializing in DNA and southern United States research. She volunteers as secretary for the Napa Valley Genealogical Society.

A Sneak Peek

Take a sneak peek and be among the first to visit our brand-new Int’l Institute of Genealogical Studies YouTube ChannelBe sure to SUBSCRIBE to see more videos as they are added. 

Did you notice the name change? This was announced in the Student Orientation Fall sessions, along with some more exciting upcoming changes. The National Institute was founded in Canada, but we have students from around the world. With our new head office in Montana, the name highlights the fact that we cover across the border of both Canada and the United States. But this does not reflect our international students, so the name will be transitioning to the International Institute for Genealogical Studies. Our YouTube channel is the first to reflect our new name. Watch for more exciting news coming!

Our first uploaded video was our Back to School Orientation Fall 2022 recording of the evening session on August 30th. We hope it will help students who are a little overwhelmed as they begin their online education experience with The Institute. We have also added the last two Student Lounge presentations: Related Faces with Tina LaFreniere (July 2022) and MyHeritage DNA with Daniel Horowitz (August 2022). We will be adding more videos, so subscribe and check back frequently. 

September is a great month to reassess and pursue your genealogical education goals. Not sure where to start? We invite you to check out our list of courses, and the packages that we offer to enhance your genealogy skills. Are you considering a genealogy career? Our certificate programs will prepare you to launch into your genealogy business.
