DNA.Land

Today, I am exploring a new site, DNA.land.  

First, you enter your email and password.  Next, you agree you wish to participate.  Then you upload your raw DNA data and then answer questions about yourself and your parents.  They are very basic questions like name and birthday.

The obvious question here is what does DNA.land do for me that I don't already have.  The answer seems to be imputed DNA segments.  I'm not 100% certain how they plan to impute the DNA segments, or what this will mean to the output DNA.land generates.  DNA is inherited in chunks, but how they will identify the chunks or the advantage of the imputed segments is beyond my comprehension at this time.

After a short waiting period, DNA.land will give a list of your DNA relatives and also a report on your genetic origins/countries your ancestors may be from.

I will have more to report when DNA.land starts to give me my reports....
