DNA Fingerprint Test Plus 18 Marker Ethnic Panel
Our exclusive, best-selling DNA Fingerprint Test examines all your ancestral lines at once, to tell you which countries and ethnic groups your ancestors came from. The DNA Fingerprint Plus adds a higher level of resolution by telling you if your profile contains any of 18 newly discovered ethnic markers. The test and ethnic panel confirm any Native American, African or Asian ancestry; if you are primarily European, you will also receive your top twenty matches from different European countries or parts of countries.
We will send you a package with a collection kit and instructions by Priority Mail. You will collect a sample with a cheek swab, and return the kit via a stamped business reply envelope. Your sample will be analyzed against 16 standard STR markers, also called CODIS markers. Your values for 15 of these genetic systems are compared with databases known as the atDNA 4.0 and ENFSI, developed by population experts. The current state of the database reflects over 400 published studies containing over 115,000 samples from all over the world.
Then, our genealogy experts take your DNA results and evaluate the relative strength and weakness of your matches to arrive at an overall picture of your primary ancestries. You will also receive a world ancestry map and certificate of testing. It takes about six to eight weeks for analysis of the sample and results.
The Science of DNA (brief introductory video, 1:25)
The DNA Fingerprint Test can be taken by anyone, regardless of gender. This is ideal for women, who cannot otherwise test their father's line without a brother or other male to take the sex-related Y chromosome test. It is not confined to just your two "outside" male-male or female-female lines (which many believe make this autosomal test more practical and accurate). This also makes the DNA Fingerprint Test ideal for situations where relatives are deceased or unknown (as in adoptive families).
The DNA Fingerprint Plus also gives you a "bottom line" analysis of your most important ethnicities, as for instance:
The 18 Marker Ethnic Panel checks your lab report for 18 distinctive numerical values scattered through your genetic material. These markers were discovered by DNA Consultants. They have been linked to early human migrations branching out of Africa into Asia, Native America and
Your report will tell you if you have the marker from one parent, from both, or from neither.It is not possible to say which parent you get a marker from--that is up to you to decide! And the fact that you do not have a marker does not mean that you lack that ancestry.
