World DNA Population Match
Now you can use your DNA to establish where in the world you & your ancestors are most likely to have come from. The World DNA Match compares your DNA to over 360 different populations worldwide, and can be carried out by both males and females.
The World DNA Population match results show to which populations your DNA profile is most similar, based on present day geography and countries.
These unique genetic polymorphisms may or may not be reflected in your individual physiognomy, morphology or external appearance but they can be expected to be associated with certain recognisable family traits.
The stages involved in producing your World DNA Population Match are as follows:
We produce your unique DNA profile, using the global standard, DNA identification profile.
We then compare your DNA profile to over 360 different populations from all over the world. To produce your top 20 matches to populations around the world.
Next we plot your genetic match information on a world map and provide you with a detailed report, your world map plot and certificate of ancestry matches.
Unlike our AncestrybyDNA which looks at your ethnic background, the World DNA Population Match test establishes your matches based on present day population groups. This is based on ancient world migrations. Many people's opinion is that these results are more practical, accurate and realistic. However these tests do not provide ethnicity nor do they provide migration patterns such as the maternal and paternal line tests.
Example World Match DNA Results
Step 1 - Creation of your Unique DNA Identity Profile
Once we receive your DNA we then generate your unique genetic profile from 16 standardised markers on your genome. Below is an example DNA profile for John Doe.
Step 2 - Comparing your DNA profile to 360 different population groups
Once your DNA profile is created the next step is to compare your DNA profile to over 360 different population groups. We then provide you with a list of the top 20 population groups that most commonly share a similar DNA profile.
The table below is an example of the comparison table, the lower the number in the far right column, the stronger the match, in this case Bosnian followed by Byelorussian etc.
5 Andalusians (Spain)
6 Canadian Caucasians
7 Albanians (Northern Italy)
8 RCMP Combined Caucasian
10 Podlasie (NE Poland)
11 Kosovo Albanian
12 Southern Croatian
16 North Poland
17 Balearic (Spain)
18 Gope (India)
19 Khandayat (India)
20 Cantabria, Spain
The results are ordered based on Random Match Probability. Population groups with the lowest random match probability are the populations to which your DNA is most similar.
Step 3 - Results displayed on the Ancestry Map
Once your population matches have been produced we plot these on a world map. The green colour indicates locations of strongest probable genetic origins, brown indicates weak or unconfirmed contributions of ancestry and red dots show no similarity.
Clusters of bright green confirm major areas of ancestry and genetic origin.
