AYPR ciM | DNA Science

What's the meaning of your AYPR tool results from GEDmatch? Find out here.


This tool calculates probabilities using the most accurate shared DNA data available. It's the first tool to give you probabilities for how your parents might be related based on AYPR results from GEDmatch.

Enter the total cM reported by the AYPR tool.

Please don't multiply the cM by anything before entering it!

The Are Your Parents Related? (AYPR) tool at GEDmatch compares your DNA against itself, checking for runs of homozygosity (ROH). These are significantly long segments(>= 7 cM) of DNA that match on both (paternal and maternal) chromosome copies.

cM = centiMorgan; 1C1R = 1st cousin, once removed.

Please enter the total cM reported by the tool, which excludes segments under 7 cM.

Averages and ranges for the same relationships can be found here.

The methodology for this tool is the same as for other relationship prediction tools at this site.

Here are other relationship prediction tools based on the most accurate data available:

Population Weighted

Double Cousin and 3/4 Sibling

Unweighted by Population

The probabilities on this page assume no endogamy, however the effects of endogamy will likely be slight compared to some of the highest results possible from the AYPR tool. These probabilities are also unweighted by proportions in the population, although population weights would likely be a great idea for parents who are distant cousins to each other.

These probabilities are only calculated as far back as 6C. The huge advantage of this tool, other than the accuracy of the data and the inclusion of relationship types for which we'll never have good empirical data, is that it treats certain relationship types differently even when the averages are the same, including by separating out some paternal and maternal relationship types. Any of the probabilities shown above are only relative to the other relationships listed, therefore they’re only meaningful in comparison to the other relationships.

There is also a tool that gives possible relationships, without probabilities, at Borland Genetics. It has the additional feature of suggesting whether or not the ROH likely came from endogamy.
