Hunter Provyn presented HRAS at “Traces of the past… Genetic and traditional genealogy in archaeological, historical and socio-cultural research” at Chorzow, Poland April 20th 2023

I am fortunate to have been able to participate in the multidisciplinary genetic genealogy conference in Chorzow, Poland this year. This was my first time participating in any genetic genealogy conference and interacting with academics in this field.

This was my second trip to Poland, once having done a bicycle tour, and I found the entire one week experience to be very pleasant, logistics between Krakow and Katowice were very easy to navigate, affordable and efficient.

I gave one presentation on the new Haplogroup Research Analytical Suite (HRAS) that I developed together with Thomas Krahn (dipl. Ing.) of YSEQ. This tool integrates all of our previously developed heatmaps (y/mtDNA, relative frequency/diversity) together into a common interface along with some additionally developed analytical features such as country sampling statistics, ancient vs modern distributions and diversification-over-time graphs.

In addition to the Upper Silesian Ethnographic Park in Chorzów, where the conference was held, I highly recommend any visitor to Katowice to visit the Silesian Museum.

These posts are the opinion of Hunter Provyn, a haplogroup researcher in J-M241 and J-M102.
