What's included in Ancient gene pool test?
- The Ancient Gene Pool Test provides a breakdown of your ancient ancestry with respect to the world’s most ancient ancestries.
- Gene pools have changed over time throughout history and they continuously change. For example, when a large group of people migrates to a new place, they add their unique gene pools to the existing pools, creating a new collection of gene pools.
- Did you know that modern-day Brazilians have the most diverse gene pools? But it was not always the case for Native Americans. Before the 15th century, American gene pools were extremely homogeneous as they slowly diversified from North Eastern Asian gene pools.
- Receive a detailed breakdown of your ancient geographical origins.
- Explore your ancient origins in an interactive interface.
- Basic test includes 7 gene pools.
- Advanced test includes 10 + 2 FREE gene pools.
About the test
As a result, Ancient DNA Origins® can go back further and more deeply into the past and reconstruct the global changes in the genetic gene pools with minimal assumptions.
To calculate your ancient ancestry, the test identified small fragments of your autosomal DNA that were retained from ancient times and were passed on to you by your ancestors, be it ancient Israelites, Paleoindians, or Vikings. These markers were carefully selected to inform us of the particular ancient regions and times where your ancestors may have lived. Then it calculates what unique ancestry derived from various geographic regions from different periods. Our test covers all continents throughout the past 17,000 years.
Because Ancient DNA Origins® relies on ancient DNA its results will likely differ from the results of other tests. These tests use modern-day people they can inform you who are your modern-day most similar populations, but they cannot be used to investigate your ancient past.
Why take this test
The Ancient DNA Origins® DNA test is the first next-generation DNA test. It is designed solely using the DNA of ancient people throughout history using our novel technologies.
With this test, you will receive a precise ancient ethnicity estimate with far greater geographical details than you could imagine. Using genetic data and evidence from history and archeology, we can revive the past and allow you to take part in this story at the most personal level.
