MARRYING MODERN FORENSIC SCIENCE WITH HISTORY AND ANCIENT DNA

DNA Consultants began as a family business founded by Donald and Teresa Yates in 2003. Our methods, expertise and databases differ from other companies' and are not available anywhere else. In a field highly driven by technology, we still pride ourselves on a personal touch. We were first with Cherokee, Native American and Jewish forensic testing. In 2019, we introduced the Basic American Indian DNA Test, the most sensitive test for Native American ancestry.
