Why take this test

Coming soon...GPS Era® is a revolutionary DNA test Series that enables you to trace your family history based on DNA-mixture events that began over 50,000 years ago! It provides maternal and paternal migration routes with precision targeting—down to your ancestral cave, neolithic cave, Iron Age town, or Medieval city. Current DNA tests typically compare fragments of your DNA to modern-day people based on admixture signatures formed within countries or continents. Typically you find that some of your ancestors come from Western Europe, Africa, or South Asia, and you are given broad estimates of ethnicity. Such DNA tests cannot provide the migration routes of your ancestors or pinpoint the geographical location of your ancestors with a specific longitude and latitude. Such tests define your ancestry in terms of the modern-day population names.

Based on ancient DNA data and powered by the most advanced AI technology, GPS Era® employs a paleo-localizing technique that leverages specific markers in your DNA to pinpoint the exact location of your ancestral DNA using both parental lines. These markers were carefully selected to identify era-specific gene pools that defined your ancestors at that time. The same analysis is applied to the hundreds or thousands of ancient people who lived during that time. When GPS Era is applied to all these ancient genomes, it tells us where and when those ancient people came from. Then, using this knowledge it tells us where YOUR ancestors came from. It then allows you to visualize your results and the results of all your ancient cousins on a timeline
