Science and Results
Our ancestry test reports on the 4 main ancestry groups. The results will clearly highlight your percentage affiliation with each of the groups below with the higher percentage showing your strongest affiliation.
• European – a population classification which includes European (Eastern and Western) groups as well as Middle Eastern and South Asian

• East Asian – a population classification which includes Chinese, Japanese and Koreans besides other groups
• Indigenous American – a population classification which includes Northern, Southern and Central indigenous American groups
Our DNA test offers you the most comprehensive information about your origins analyzing a total of 176 DNA markers (known as Ancestry Informative Markers and summarized by the acronym “AIMs”) to expound on the details of your origins from these 4 world groups.
Note that this test does not indicate race but provides you with a percentage which expresses your ancestral affiliation to the aforementioned 4 groups.
