Our new Basic World DNA Fingerprint Test is a value-priced version of our flagship product DNA Fingerprint Plus. This mid-range choice is “just the facts.” Like the full product, it examines standard locations on your whole-genome DNA used in the forensic sciences and gives you a comprehensive picture of your ancestry based on all your ancestral lines. The time depth is historical, not ancient (200 – 500 years). The report states the investigators’ conclusion to testing up front and summarizes your principal ancestral lines in a sentence or two. It then lists your top 50 world populations (including potentially 50 North American Indian tribes, notably Cherokee, as well as Sephardic, Ashkenazi and other Jewish matches, Romani/Gypsy and other exotic groups). It goes on to break out your top 20 countries of Europe (including the latest additions, Ukraine and Russia). You also receive your unique, identifying DNA fingerprint with lab results showing your 15 standard alleles.
The process is easy. We send you a package by Priority Mail with collection kit and instructions. You collect a sample by rubbing four swabs inside your mouth and return them via a business reply envelope. Your sample is analyzed according to standard STR scores, also called CODIS markers, your individual DNA profile. Your 7-page report is emailed to you in a pdf within three weeks of receipt of your sample by our lab. Hard copies, upgrades and follow-up testing are available, along with open-ended customer service to answer all your questions, M-F 10am-6pm Mountain Time. Consider adding the 400-page book DNA and You: Blog Posts from the Golden Age of the Human Genome Project, a $24.95 value and great way to enhance your DNA testing experience.

Our mid-range-priced autosomal test analyzes your entire ancestry with matches to populations around the world, including countries of Europe.
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 Plus ideal for situations where relatives are deceased or unknown (as in adoptive families). DNA Consultants’ method is a forensic-based approach, unlike other companies such as Ancestry.com, FamilyTreeDNA, and 23&me. Results will vary because of the method and data used. No other companies have data, for instance, for individual countries of Europe, Native American populations or such specific populations as Romani/Gypsies, Cherokee Indians, Melungeons, Israeli Jews, Sephardic Jews, Ukrainian Jews, Majorcan Jews and others.
