You are probably familiar with the theory of “Six Degrees of Separation”, which purports that no one is more than six acquaintances away from anyone else in the world. For example, this is how I get to Khloe Kardashian:
I am mother to Word Nerd Teen (1), who dances under Ben Stevenson (2), who taught ballet to Jane Seymour (3), who was on DWTS with Mark Cuban (4), who hired and fired Lamar Odom (5), who is married to Khloe Kardashian (6).
The Gene Ring is almost a visual representation of “Six Degrees of Separation”. It demonstrates where you genetic make-up overlaps with communities around the world. It doesn’t tell you where you have come from, but connects you to the world today.
Unlike other DNA tests, the Gene Ring does not contain any sensitive or identifying information. It is simply an artistic rendering of how your genetic profile matches up with populations around the world.
I cannot wait to see my Gene Ring. I really have no idea where in the world I will fall. My ancestry is English, but the current population of England is very diverse and not likely to match. Who knows? I could match up with some place totally unexpected, like Brazil!
