Who Am I? The Genographic Project (Part 4)

In the end, the Genographic Project results do not really tell you too much that is surprising, but it is a research project whose results will only get better and better as more people submit DNA for analysis. Below is an Infographic (provided by the Genographic Project web site), summarizing my results:

Also of interest is that they provided me with a complete copy (.CSV format) of my sequenced genetic information - this has 142,134 records, and below are the first 10 genetic markers of my DNA sequence:

I wonder will scientists in the future be able to clone a copy of Eugene based on my DNA sequence? Now there's a horrible thought!
