The deal states "...the company also offers paternal (Y-STR) and maternal (mtDNA) lineage tests...". Is there an additional charge for both lineages?

Donald G.  asked on  Apr 23, 2013


This Groupon offer does not include the paternal (Y-STR) and maternal (mtDNA) lineage tests. You may purchase them for an additional $195.00 each.

Can the test determine if two people are related?

Andrew G.  asked on  Apr 23, 2013


This test is not designed to determine if two individuals are related.

The current BGA test that AncestrybyDNA™ is offering provides information on the proportions of ancestry on the continental level for most continents, Indigenous American, European (which includes European, Middle Eastern and South Asian groups such as Indians), and African, but we distinguish ancestries within Asia and the Pacific Rim by adding East Asian, (which includes the Pacific Islanders) as an additional group. Since there will also be interest in defining the levels of ancestry within continents (such as distinguishing Japanese from Chinese, or Northern European from Middle Eastern), we are in the process of developing a new series of Ancestry Informative Markers that will provide more insight into where within a particular continent a persons’ ancestors were most likely derived.
