My Asian ancestry is gone

In one of my earliest posts, I mentioned 23andme’s Ancestry Painting, which allows us to see the origin of our chromosomes in terms of large geographical regions. At the time, I had some small fragments (less than 1 percent) of Asian origin. But recently 23andme announce it had made improvements to this functionality – and when I went there a few moments ago to see if anything had changed for me, I discovered that my Asian genes were no longer there...

  1. Ana, I too have the less than 1% Asian "Noise" in my Ancestry Painting. I am trying to understand what the heck is meant by "Noise". Also do you recollect when 23andMe first presented the term "Ancestry Painting"? Jim
