More Features. More Power.
With more features and markers, you can do what is not possible with standard ancestry tests.
Test the Same Markers the Pros Use
Most basic ancestry tests in the market use DNA chips to detect only one type of marker, the SNP marker. We offer technologies which allow testing of more than just SNP, including Sanger Sequencing for reading the entire mtDNA sequence, as well as Fragment Analysis to detect Y-DNA STR and Autosomal STR markers which are widely used by professionals for forensic investigations.
Did you descend from royalty?
Discover your ties to royalty and legendary figures. We offer the world’s most comprehensive database of historical projects. Compare yourself against royalty, world leaders, religious figures, forensic investigations and much more.
What are fast mutating DNA markers?
STR versus SNP markers
There is more than one type of marker that can be used for ancestry: STR and SNP. STR markers mutate rapidly, at a rate of once every 20 generations. Fast mutating STR markers can be used to trace recent ancestry, within the past hundreds of years. SNP markers mutate very slowly, once every few thousand years. Slow mutating SNP markers can only trace deep ancestry from thousands of years ago, and do not provide any information on recent ancestral events.
