About Family Tree DNA
Family Tree DNA wants you to know where you came from. That's why the company of geneticists tests swabs of your DNA in their lab, pinpointing everything from specific ancestors from the mother's and father's side to percentages of ethnic makeup. Read on to learn more:
- It's easy. Use the two cotton "toothed" swabs from the lab to scrape the inside of your cheek, then mail the samples to back to the lab.
- Don't speak genetics? No problem. Just head to Family Tree DNA's glossary of terms to learn the meanings behind autosomal DNA, chromatid, mitochondria, and Western Atlantic modal haplotype.
- Family Tree DNA is connected with National Geographic’s Genographic Project. In fact, the company is the testing partner for the project and can find new matches for free if clients transfer their Genographic Project DNA to Family Tree.
