Question: Is the science behind the one real?

The science behind The One is fiction — not much is known about what element of choice is involved in ant reproduction — and the series does little to explore the ethical conundrums of a genetically predefined happy ever after.

Can the show The One be real?

Though the show is based on the book of the same name by John Marrs and is completely fictional, you may be wondering whether DNA matching is possible in real life. Some examples are DNA Romance, Gene Partner, and a startup called Pheramor. (Pheramor has gone out of business, according to this report.)

Is there any science behind The One Netflix?

What is genetic matching?

Genetic matching is an algorithm that iteratively checks propensity scores. It improves them using a combination of propensity score matching and Mahalanobis distance matching (Diamond & Sekhon, 2012). The jury is out on whether genetic matching is a “better” method than any of the other matching techniques.

What does a genetic distance of 0 mean?

A genetic distance of zero means there are no differences in the results being compared against one another, i.e., an exact match. This is the meaning when comparing Y-chromosome DNA or mitochondrial DNA. For autosomal DNA comparisons, genetic distance may refer to the size of a DNA segment.
