How does the ancestry analysis work?
The tellmeGen Ancestry DNA Test shows where your ancestors came from.
Thanks to genetics inherited over hundreds of thousands of years and scientific advances in the field, at tellmeGen we can determine which ethnic groups and geographical areas you come from.
The tellmeGen database currently contains thousands of individuals from 74 ethnic groups in 8 major geographical areas around the world: Europe (17); Caucasus and Central Asia (6); North Africa and Middle East (9); Sub-Saharan Africa (10); South Asia (11); East Asia (14); Oceania (1); and the Americas (6).
The association between each ethnic group in the database and their origin allows us to assign a possible geographic origin to your genetic makeup. The selection of the samples that compose the database has been made following a rigorous quality control to ensure maximum precision in the assignment of your ancestral components.
