Well why did he say that he has no genes to use the apple?

it makes no sense after Ubisoft stated that Altair and Ezio are not related... He has to have some of the genes of either Ezio OR Altair and so be able to use it... or desmond wouldn't be able to have both genetics without Altair and Ezio NOT being related

You do understand that Desmond has a mother. It would be entirely possible that he is related to both Altair and Ezio through her. In that case, William may be related to neither.

But that would mean that Altair and Etio should be related as well or not? Damn genetics

Ezio and Altiar are not related directly, but it is possible that another of Desmond's ancestor (for the sake of argument, let's say Flavia Auditore) had children with one of Altair's descendants. Eventually, that particular bloodline leads to either Desmond's father or mother.

In the other hand, Desmond's other parent comes from the bloodline of the ancestor Desmond will have to investigate in the next game (who is also strong in First Civilization DNA much like Ezio). If these two bloodlines converged with the conception of Desmond, that explains why only Desmond is able to use the Apple.

Why do so many people forget the part later where William explains Desmond's high concentration of First Civilization genes? Desmond having Altair, Ezio and another presumably more awesome than awesome ancestor all help.

It could be Desmond's mother the one carrying the bloodline. If Desmond's maternal grandfather carried Ezio's bloodline and Desmond's maternal grandmother carried Altair's bloodline, then you still have the two bloodlines. This could have happened with any of Desmond's grandparents as well. But this opens new possibilities... If this is so, why didn't Abstergo track Desmond's mother? Or did they?

I think Marcello will go to Alexandria, the place where Altair's family moved to, and being a stud like his dad will impregnate half of the city and end up impregnating one of Altairs descendants. This is where the bloodlines will merge which eventually leads to Desmond! If he inherited ginger hair from Sofia then this is unlikely, bacause no men with ginger hair get women.

How long have Abstergo been using the Animus for? One of the subjects was pregnant when she used it, maybe it was Desmonds mother? I doubt it though.

the problem is... for the convergence to only function with desmond... it means BOTH of his parents have to have some genetic material from each of the lines. (in an interview they implied that desmond has up to 9 different lines converging with him.) Because as it seems to stand right now... A lot of those traits don't seem to be recessive. Ezio's father knew of his 'eagle vision' gift. Implying that he had it as well. It may be a rare anomaly since mario did not... but I just feel that the only real explination that makes any sense. (Not that everything they've done with this game's story makes sense mind you.) is if some of the genes that allow for desmond to do what he does come via his father.. and some from his mother.

Which if you remember... the "Eve" line seems to also be leading to a convergence around the same time to allow for a ressurection of TOWCB.
