Features » DNA Archaeology
DNA plays a significant role in modern day archaeology. As mass graves are uncovered, preserved specimens are unearthed, and historical families are investigated, scientists are increasingly turning to DNA to solve unanswered questions regarding the origins, relationships and relevance of their discoveries. The DNA Archaeology database allows individuals who have tested their DNA to read about how DNA is used in archaeological discoveries and compare their genetic markers against published DNA sequences from ancient and historical individuals.
DNA markers which can be compared in this database are:
Yes, as new DNA data from archaeological discoveries become available, they will be added to the DNA Archaeology database.
No, there is no charge for using this database once you have your results.
Yes, you will have unlimited ongoing use of this database. This will allow you to continuously access the newest DNA archaeology discoveries as they become available.
