Ancestral Origins™ DNA Test kit just £29*

Trace your ancestors and DNA genealogy with our Ancestral Origins DNA ancestry test.

The GTL Ancestral Origins™ DNA Test is the most sophisticated and easy to understand DNA ancestry test available and allows you to discover your GeoGenetic links with populations around the world.

This straightforward ancestry DNA test determines your DNA profile and compares it against 14 anthropological regions and hundreds of global populations whose combined genetic information is scientifically validated. The likelihood that your genetic information is related with each one of these regions and populations is then measured. The results are then plotted on a very high resolution map illustrating your unique GeoGenetic heritage from a regional analysis and a by-population view.

DNA ancestry has never been so easy to understand!

Ordering Your DNA Test Kit

We at GTL believe that, once you have collected DNA samples for testing, you should be able to pay for your DNA test when you are ready. This is why we offer you the opportunity to purchase a DNA ancestry testing kit now for the low price of £29 and pay the laboratory processing fee at a later date when you return your DNA samples for analysis and testing.

Ancestral Origins™ DNA Testing Kit £29*

Order your home Ancestral Origins™ test kit for £29 and pay the laboratory processing fee when you return your DNA samples for analysis. Our Ancestral Origins™ test laboratory processing cost is £129 for the standard map and £139 for the extra large map. A personalised 9-page ancestry report is available for an additional £35.

Applicants with DNA Profiles

Applicants who already have a DNA profile and would like to use it to generate an Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry map can call one of our Customer Service Advisors for a quote on 0333 300 3130. GTL customers who have carried out a DNA test within the last 3 months qualify for an extra discount.

About the Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry Map

Using the Ancestral Origins™ DNA ancestry test to trace your ancestry and DNA genealogy allows you to benefit from GTL’s experience and position as one of the world’s foremost human identity DNA analysis laboratories. Data from our own population databases as well as organisations such as the Yale School of Medicine and scientific publications including The Journal of Forensic Sciences and Forensic Science International has been compiled into what has become the Focused GeoGenetic Database or FoGG DB™. An analysis program called FoGGPopper™ has been developed to extract relevant data from the FoGG DB™ and then follow specific algorithms and carry out calculations to determine an applicant’s strongest DNA ancestry. A personalised Ancestral Origins™ DNA ancestry map is created using the data from this DNA ancestry analysis.

Each unique Ancestral Origins™ DNA ancestry map is made up of three key components:

Population Matches: Each applicant’s DNA is measured individually against every population in our database and a mark given to indicate how strongly the DNA profile matches against each of the tested populations. On the Ancestral Origins™ Population Match map, each population has a specific shape to indicate which anthropological region that population belongs to as well as a colour to show how strong the match is with that population. The strongest match is green, a good match is yellow and a weak or no match is red.

These calculations also take into account three unique anthropological regions which are in fact groups of populations that have migrated from a native land to somewhere else. These dispersed populations are European Americans, African Americans and Hispanic Americans.

Native Region Matches: A further set of calculations are run, excluding the dispersed population regions, to determine the strongest links with anthropological native regions. Again, the strongest match is green and any other matches are shown in yellow. Because the Native Region map does not include any data relating to dispersed population regions, it can be thought of as more of a “deep roots” match.

Strength Indicators: The Population Match Strength Indicator displays the collective strength of all the populations in each matched region and compares each region against each other as a graph. This allows each applicant to instantly identify how individual population matches compare with other matched regions in addition to the information shown in the map.

The Native Region Strength Indicator displays as a graph how the strength of each native region compares with any other matched native regions.

Quality, Size and Personalisation

Each Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry map is printed on glossy photographic paper using a photographic-quality five-dye printing process. This process produces rich and beautiful images suitable for framing. Ancestral Origins™ DNA Ancestry maps are available in two sizes: the Standard 17" x 10½" (43 x 27cm) version or Extra Large 27¼" x 17" (69 x 43cm) version which makes a wonderful gift and costs only £10 more. Each map is custom made and will include “Exclusively prepared for” followed by the applicant’s name.

Personalised Ancestral Origins DNA Analysis Report

Also available is a personalised Ancestral Origins DNA Analysis Report together with an account of historical migration, which will explain how different populations have moved around the world. This coupled with your personal results will give you a more comprehensive insight into your ancestral roots. Your personal report will include your DNA Profile together with your Regional Affiliations, the number of Population Matches and names of the Population Database with the closest matches to your unique DNA profile.

In the case if minors, individuals suffering from a mental disorder or those who are not in a position to give their own consent, a legal guardian or a person having parental responsibility for the individual must consent. Under the Human Tissue Act it is a criminal offense to take a sample from someone to test their DNA without their consent, except for medical purposes and lawful investigative purposes, for example a criminal investigation.
