Ancestry by DNA TestingPrice: CA$249.00 (Standard) / CA$269.00 (Extra Large)*
Testing: Applicant only
Timeframe: 2 weeks
Discover your anthropological roots. This simple Ancestry by DNA test can tell you where on earth your ancestors originated and travelled... your unique geographical and racial heritage.
International Biosciences can provide you conclusive answers about your ancestry and genealogy from a very unique perspective; that of your own genetic makeup.
Because of the extensive amount of research performed in order to compile our massive genealogical DNA database, which utilizes existing indigenous peoples and archaeological finds; and due to the nature of how DNA is passed on from generation to generation; our scientists can focus on the DNA sequences that indicate a person's unique "BioGeographical" identity.
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. Currently we have data for African Americans, European Americans, and Hispanic Americans.
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.

"DNA stands for Differences Never Apply. It is a youth led peer mentoring project tackling extremism and promoting greater social cohesion in the local communities of Birmingham and was awarded the Children and Young People Now Award 2011 for Youth Work. A critical part of the project involves young people exploring their sense of identity, belonging and purpose. International Biosciences has consistently given fantastic service in producing ancestral maps and information from DNA provided by the young people. Not only do the maps and information produce eye opening results in terms of young people's geographic and racial ancestry, they are a perfect backdrop to help young people explore who they are and where they belong today. I cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism of International Biosciences and the service they provide. It is second to none. Thank you for helping us to make the project such a great success!" Lee Rogerson, MBE MA (Managing Director), Street Talk Initiative

"I would like to thank you for my recently received DNA map and blurb. I took this test out of curiosity and whatever it had said would have been of interest... I was surprised and fascinated by my report and I'm really glad that I had it done... I am going to get a test for my husband's birthday in April."- C.T.
