National Geographic’s Geno 2.0 DNA Analysis kit, powered by Helix, uses cutting edge science to help you answer the fundamental questions of life: Who am I? Where did I come from? And what does it mean to be human? Now, the Geno 2.0 app is bringing your story to life as only National Geographic can, delivering your results in new and compelling ways, starting with your own customized video that you can share on Facebook with your family and friends. Other app features include: - Customized regional ancestral results showing your individual ancestral makeup - Customized and shareable results video telling the story of your ancestral migration path - Deep ancestry report, showing your branch on the human family tree - Your individual percentage of Neanderthal DNA in your genome - Share your Neanderthal selfie with your friends Your Story: Your results give you an unprecedented view of your lineage. You will discover the migration paths your ancient ancestors followed hundreds and even thousands of years ago as humans spread out of Africa and around the globe. You will also learn the details of your unique ancestral makeup—the biological and geographical components that make up who you are. What are the ingredients, and how much of a mixture is your own DNA recipe? Included in the 300,000 markers we test for is a subset that scientists have recently determined to be from our hominin cousins, the Neanderthals, who split from our lineage around 500,000 years ago. With Geno 2.0, you will learn if you have any Neanderthal DNA in your genome. Our Story: Your results are just the beginning. By regularly visiting the Geno 2.0 website you can find out more as Geno 2.0 scientists pull together connections, uncover new paths, and provide fresh insights into your ancestry. You’ll find informative graphics, interactive features, video, and news stories, and learn about the broader historical context of your results. The Human Story: Working together, we are uncovering the story of the greatest journey ever told: how our ancestors migrated from their African homeland to populate the Earth tens of thousands of years ago. By carefully comparing the DNA from world populations that have been genetically, and geographically, stable for hundreds or thousands of years, we can chart a more complete map of the early stages of human history – and your family’s part in it. Welcome to the expedition of a lifetime!
