Discover your GeoGenetic links with populations around the world. Ancestral Origins™ is the most refined and easy to understand DNA genealogy test on the market. With this simple DNA Ancestry test, your DNA profile is compared against hundreds of global populations and fourteen anthropological regions whose collective genetic information is known and scientifically validated. We then measure the likelihood that your genetic information is linked with each of those populations and regions, and plot the results on a very high resolution map which illustrates your unique geogenetic heritage from both a per-population view, and an overall regional view. DNA genealogy has never been so easy to understand!
DNA genealogy using the Ancestral Origins™ DNA Test benefits greatly from the experience of one of the world's top human identity DNA testing laboratories. We've compiled data from scientific publications such as Forensic Science International and The Journal of Forensic Sciences; from organizations such as the Yale School of Medicine; and from our own population databases into what is now called "FoGG DB™": the Focused GeoGenetic Database. We've also developed an analysis suite called FoggPopper™ which uses a human DNA profile to pull relevant data out of FoGG DB™ and then perform various calculations and follow certain algorithms to arrive at a result which reveals a person's strongest DNA ancestry. The data from this DNA ancestry test is then compiled into the Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry map, personalized for each customer. Each Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry map is broken into three major sections: Population Matches, Native Region Matches, and Strength Indicators.
We measure your DNA individually against every population in our database, and mark how strongly your profile matched against each. On the population match map, each population has a shape which tells you which anthropological region that population belongs to, as well as a color to indicate how strong of a match you had with it. Green is the best match, yellow is a good match, and red means that no match or a weak match was made. In this set of calculations, we also indicate three special anthropological regions, which are actually groups of dispersed populations. A dispersed population is one that has migrated from a native land to somewhere else on the globe.
