What is DNA Tribes® Genetic Ancestry Analysis?
This is an Ancestry test that analysis your autosomal DNA. This part of your DNA is inherited from the ancestors of both your parents. Your result will report within which individual populations and DNA Tribes® World Regions that your DNA profile is most commonly found. With a database of over 1200 population groups spanning Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Middle East, Native American, and South Asia. Your DNA matches may reflect not only your more recent ancestors but can also reveal traces of more ancient contributions through shared origins and migrations.
How long will it take to get my report?
Testing will be completed within 2 to 3 weeks from receipt of the samples.
How does DNA Tribes® STR testing compare to autosomal tests, that use thousands of SNP markers?
There are a much greater number of reference databases to compare STR markers to which allows us to provide a more thorough comparison of you genetic data that we would not be able to with SNP testing. We use over 1,200 ethnic population groups worldwide. This geographical detail simply does not exist in SNP testing at this time.
How many world populations are included in DNA Tribes analysis?
Your unique autosomal STR profile will be carefully compared to over 1,200populations groups from around the world. These groups have been identified by many peer-reviewed academic journals and have been verified using cutting edge statistical algorithms. The comparison will include native populations on all inhabited continents, in addition to modern mixed communities found around the world.
