Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry Testing
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!
About the Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry Map
DNA genealogy using the Ancestral Origins™ DNA Test benefits greatly from GTL's experience and position as one of the worlds 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.
Population Matches: 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 five 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. Currently we have dispersed population data for African-Americans, European-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Asian-Americans and European-Australians.
Native Region Matches: Running a completely new set of calculations, and not using any of our "dispersed population" regions, we determine which anthropological native regions you have the strongest links with. The strongest match is indicated in green, any subsequent matches are indicated in yellow. While the population match map contains data concerning recent migrations to North America, the Native Region map does not, and can be considered more of a "Deep Roots" match.
Strength Indicators: The first strength indicator graph looks at the cumulative strength of all the populations in your matched regions, and shows you how strong each region is in comparison with each other. This way, you not only know how strong individual populations are with the population match map, but can look at the larger picture, and know how each represented region measures up with any other regions you may have matched. A second strength indicator looks at your native region matches (in the smaller map) and simply shows you how each native region compares in strength with any other native regions you may have matched.
Quality, Size, and Personalization
Each Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry map is printed using a photographic-quality five-dye printing process on glossy photographic paper. These images come out rich and beautiful and are suitable for framing and displaying with pride in your home. They come in two sizes. You can order a 17 x 10.6 inch version, which is the standard size you get with your order, or you can order an extra large 27.25 x 17 inch version, which is absolutely stunning. Because every map is custom made, your map will have "Exclusively prepared for" followed by your name printed on it.
If you already have a DNA profile you'd like to use to generate an Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry map, please call us at 07 3387 0177 and we'll be happy to get the ball rolling. The map with a preexisting profile costs $395 for the large map.
