About DNA Origins

DNA Origins: Results

Once our laboratory receives your DNA, your results will be ready online in 6-8 weeks. Your results consist of a certificate depicting your ancestral data in two formats:

  • Table Report: Lists your ancestral percentages of the four founder groups (European, African, East Asian, and Indigenous American)
  • Bar Graph: Shows the confidence intervals for your percentage ratios. The concept of confidence intervals is explained further below.

Confidence Interval

DNA Origins is based on statistics. The results percentages determined are a “maximum likelihood estimate,” or, in other words, your most likely ancestral mix. The brackets on top of each bar in the graph indicate the confidence interval. This is the range of other possibilities, but are less likely than the percentage specified in your results.

Your certificate is accompanied by a manual, which discusses the interpretation of test results in greater detail. Both are available for download in PDF format. Please note that results will only be available through our website for 1 year.
