Do you know that x-chromosomes have different inheritance patterns than other DNA? Learn about the differences in x-chromosome inheritance in men and women. We will learn about DNA recombination. We will talk about using fan charts to narrow down which ancestor may or may not have contributed to your x-DNA. Then we will talk about how to use this information within GedMatch to find our largest segment matches on the x-chromosome and how to organize the results using spreadsheets.
