We're learning more about how DNA can pinpoint many crucial aspects of ourselves, including potential health issues and connections to our parents and other family members. Dr. Tyrone Bowes, a geneticist from Ireland, is using DNA to help people track their ancestral clans. Right now, he can help track ancestral DNA in Ireland, England and Scotland, with more countries on the way. Dr. Bowes joined guest host Kim Holcomb to share how his practice works.

Dr. Bowes will conduct a workshop about Irish ancestral DNA testing tonight at 6 at Faith Lutheran Church in Seattle - as part of this year's Irish Week Celebration, sponsored by the Irish Heritage Club of Seattle.
