Discovering your genetic ancestry is quick and easy with our home DNA testing kit. DNA is collected by lightly brushing inside your cheek and then returned by mail for lab processing. Reports for 22 and 26 Marker Kit Tests are identical in format and include a detailed comparison of your DNA to ethnic groups and genetic regions around the world.
Individual Example Profiles from World Populations: The sample reports below illustrate the format of 22 and 26 Marker Kit results. The DNA matches for each person reflect that person's unique DNA profile and only partly represent the full range of DNA matches possible within each population (see our Global Survey for more detail). Individual results will vary to express the unique geographical distribution of your genetic profile. (Updated July 1, 2013)
