One thought on “How does Embark know which breeds are in Luke?

    alternative breeds that are closely related share a fewwhat less DNA, and dogs from very alternative breeds share even less DNA (but still much more DNA than either dog shares with a cat). All dogs are related and share a few DNA. Because dog breeds are made up of a closed group of dogs, all dogs in that breed share a lot of their DNA, typically about as much as second cousins, though it varies by breed. By testing over 200,000 genetic markers, we build up his genes one DNA segment at a time, to find out the ancestry with great certainty. We can use the length of segments Luke shares with our reference dogs to see how many generations it has been since they last shared an ancestor. Siblings share lots of their DNA (half of it in fact), cousins share a bit less (an eighth), and so on.
