The DNA Origins Population Groups

The DNA Origins test results provide ancestral estimated for four populations:

  • European: including Europeans, Middle Easterners and South Asians (India). The definition of this population group is based on studies which show that people living in Europe, the Middle East and South Asia share common ancestral markers dating 10,000 to 50,000 years ago
  • Indigenous American: including population groups who migrated to North, South and Central America
  • Sub-Saharan African: including people with roots in the Sub-Saharan region of Africa
  • East Asian: including Japanese, Chinese, Koreans and Pacific Islanders

How to Collect Your DNA Origins Samples

You will receive the results of your test within 6 weeks from when we receive your DNA samples and completed consent forms. Your quick, easy, and painless sample collection kit is also included in the price of the test. We will mail your DNA kit to your home where you will follow some simple step-by-step instructions and then send the kit back to us for analysis.

Collecting the sample will only take a couple minutes of your time. You will receive four mouth swabs in the kit. You must gently swab the inside of your cheek for about 30 seconds each to collect a sample of your DNA. After you have used all four swabs you must simply let them air dry for an hour, package them in the included sample collection envelops and send them back to us.

Why Test for Your Ancestry?

One of the main reasons people use our test is to unlock their ancestral roots and provide a starting point for further research into their heritage and possible ancestors. It is important to note that this test does not predict or establish an individual’s race – it provides a statistical estimate of genetic ancestry and you may discover that your heritage is different to what you expected. The only way to begin the journey into discovering your past is through genetic testing.

Other Ancestry DNA Tests

We offer a range of ancestry DNA tests designed to provide different information about your genetic heritage:

The Paternal Lineage Ancestry DNA Test will trace the male lineage back 60,000 years and report Y-chromosome haplogroup information for the tested male. This test can only be undertaken by males.

The Maternal Lineage Ancestry Test uses mitochondrial DNA testing (mtDNA) to trace the maternal line back 150,000 years and report your mtDNA haplogroup.

Dog Allergy Testing Kit Review
Hello Team, I would love to thank all involved in testing my dog allergies. Since that test she finally lives her life itch free as it enabled us to avoid products causing her allergic reaction. I am very grateful for this report as her health massively improved after we removed all listed products from her diet. Since that time I have been suggesting other dog owners which battle similar issue to use your service. 5* from Blue.

Dog Allergy Test Kit Review
We had our dog allergy tested with you last year. We were advised that it is not a good enough test by our vet and many others online. This however couldn't be more wrong. We used the results to remove foods from her diet and even hypo-allergenic shampoos etc. Since she turned 1 years old we had her allergy tested by blood at the vet to see if she had out grown any of these allergies. The results were exactly the same as we were given by yourselves. Everything in red she is still allergic to. Without your help I'm not sure how we would of been able to help her in her first year. Especially given that she is allergic to almost everything hypoallergenic.

Dog Allergy Testing Review
Please forward my praise to your superiors with regards to your customer attention - thank you for all the communication at all times, and making sure all OK. Much appreciated. 1 day into eliminating salmon oil from her diet (daily supplement I was giving her for for her arthritis) and the turkey menus she is considerably better, all in 24 hrs. Can’t wait to see how she improves within a few weeks of elimination.
