$97 for a DNA Ancestry Test ($195 Value)
Participants receive a DNA sample-collection kit containing cheek swabs and instructions for collecting samples from the inside of the mouth. Send the samples back to the lab, and after a six- to eight-week analysis, the lab returns a PDF certification detailing the customer's personal ancestral breakdown. The breakdown is based on four percentage groups: indigenous American, European–South Asian, East Asian, and sub-Saharan African. The analysis also comes with a manual explaining the process and human migration history.

About DNA Origins
DNA Origins helps customers trace their genetic roots to measure DNA markers on 22 pairs of chromosomes. It searches the full spectrum of ancestors for similar markers, which may span many geographical locations.
Everything you need comes in a simple, complete at-home kit which contains cheek swabs and instructions for collecting samples from the inside of the mouth—a more effective sample method than sending in everything you have ever touched. After you collect the DNA sample, the lab performs the test, and you will receive the results online.
