What will my genetic ancestry map show me?
Your ancestry map highlights 3 main aspects of your geo-genetic ancestry and answer the following questions:
- How closely does your DNA match to that of studied populations? To do this we use specific colour codes for each population. Different colours will indicate how strong or weak your genetic relationship is to a given group. Yellow, for example, will indicate those groups to which your DNA matches least.
- How closely does your DNA match to studied anthropological regions? This part of the ancestry analysis will tell you where your native regional genetic affiliations lie. In other words, we will tell you where your ancestors came from. This should indeed help you find some interesting links and often may be quite surprising as your deep ancestral roots may be very different to those of your recent ancestry.
- Strength Indicators: Different colours on your map indicate a different degree of genetic affiliation with your ancestral groups. Different shapes are used to indicate the different studied anthropological groups. We merge these two different sets of data together on bar graphs to clearly display the regional matches and your native region matches.
Our seal of quality: accreditation
Our laboratories are ISO 17025 accredited. With this advanced test we will tell you what geographical region or area your ancestors came from which could include:
- North or South African
- North or South European
- American-European immigrants
- Oceanic, Australian
Our database, known as FoGG DB™, contains all the genetic information we need. It is a database of human DNA blueprints which we use to link you to your genetic ancestry. It is this database which also enables us to produce your highly detailed, personalized map. To get an idea of just what your map could look like, click here
