Indigenous DNA Database

Features  -  Indigenous DNA
Use your DNA to search online for potential family matches from around the world.

Similarities in DNA exist between individuals from the same indigenous population. The Indigenous DNA Database allows individuals who have tested their DNA markers to compare their data against the markers from Indigenous Populations from around the world to see which people and places most closely match their DNA type.

Which types of DNA markers can be compared?

DNA markers which can be compared in this database are:

  1. Y-DNA SNP markers from Y-DNA Haplogroup SNP test (included in all Paternal Ancestry Test packages)
  2. Y-DNA SNP markers from Y-DNA Subclade SNP test
  3. mtDNA HVR1 region, HVR2, Region and Coding region data from Maternal Ancestry Test packages

What will the Y-DNA SNP comparison show me?

The Y-DNA comparison will compare your Y-DNA SNP markers against the SNP markers found in indigenous populations from around the world and rank them from closest match to most distant match. This comparison will allow you to get a better understanding of which population groups from around the world are the closest match to your paternal lineage.

What will the mtDNA comparison show me?

The mtDNA comparison will compare your mtDNA test results against the mtDNA profiles found in indigenous populations from around the world and rank them from closest match to most distant match. This comparison will allow you to get a better understanding of which population groups from around the world are the closest match to your maternal lineage.

Is the Indigenous DNA Database dynamic?

Yes, new indigenous population data becomes available at a rapid rate. The Indigenous DNA Database contains data from indigenous studies from published peer reviewed scientific journals from around the world. The indigenous DNA population database is updated whenever new population data is published.

Is there a charge for using this database?

No, there is no charge for using this database.

Can I continue to search this database after my initial search?

Yes, you will have unlimited ongoing use of this database. This will allow you to continuously receive the most up to date comparisons as new scientific data becomes available.
