DNA Ancestry Test

DNA Ancestry Testing in Kenya

The ancestry test helps you to find out your ancestral origin. We offer 3 types of ancestry tests namely the paternal lineage test, the maternal lineage test, and the DNA origins test

The paternal lineage test uses Y-chromosome testing to find out one’s paternal haplogroup and hence reveal your ancient paternal heritage.

A haplogroup is one of more than twenty major groups that comprise the human race. Women who seek to understand their paternal lineage ancestry can submit a sample of their immediate paternal ancestor (their father) or paternal uncle, paternal grandparent, or brother.

The maternal lineage test is available to both men and women and tests their mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) to reveal their ancient maternal heritage. This test is based on the fact that both men and women inherit their mitochondrial DNA only from the mother. It is this mtDNA that is tested to generate a haplogroup that traces the maternal lineage back to the maternal founder of their clan.

The DNA origins test tells you the Percentage of Ancestry from 4 different population groups - It lets you know how much ancestral DNA you have from African, European, Asian, or Indigenous American people.

Buccal swab (mouth swab) samples from the individual to be tested are needed. For the paternal lineage test, females can submit samples of their immediate paternal relative e.g father, paternal uncle, paternal grandfather, or brother.

Your DNA test report will list your haplogroup, which represents the area of the world your ancestors came from. It also contains raw data, called a haplotype, for your Y-STR DNA test that you can use for further research in many publicly available databases and ancestry projects. The packet will include: your haplogroup designation, a personalized map depicting your ancestors’ journey and where they initially settled in the ancient world, your Y-STR profile (raw data) for the paternal lineage test, your mtDNA raw data for the maternal lineage test, listing the differences between your sequence and that of the revised Cambridge Reference Sequence, and facts about your haplogroup, including which parts of the world you can find your “genetic cousins” and famous people who share the same haplogroup as you do.
