Geno 2.0 - Ancestry DNA Test App Description

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!

App Reviews

  • Dismal

    By RenoNOTVegas
    Quite possibly the worst app ever, not sure if it’s a Helix issue or NatGeo... nothing but “error...” with no option to seek or even look for help!
  • INOP.

    By (aiea)
    All I get is the splash screen that times out. iPhone SE 64 GB with latest IOS.
  • Useless App

    By Brand775
    I have been unable to use this App that I have had to repeatedly download. I’ve tried signing out nothing but a generic error code. I sent an email request for assistance but have heard nothing back. It might be a great for the people it actually works for. Disappointed.
  • Not working properly?

    By Foxyt51
    Mine has an encountered ‘unknown error’ that’s keeping me from seeing my results...
  • Crashing App with Login

    By Teraisa
    I’ve downloaded the app twice and each time I login it crashes. My guess is Nat Geo is reputable and has the finances to make this work and I’ll be able to update this issue at some point IF I bother trying it again.
  • What?! No!

    By StinkyPete3
    Free to download, the pay almost $100? Not while I’m alive! I’d rather give you my areas of origin and get a ballpark figure. NatGeo has enough money from my cable bill. No.
  • App does not work

    By Krr8855
    App will not load or allow me to sign in! Tried deleting and downloading multiple times, tried completely closing out the app, everything I could think of.
  • Total Ripoff!

    By The Real Jonathan
    Worthless - requires you to re-buy another geno 2.0 kit and refuses all previous kits bought! Total ripoff!!!
  • This would be neat, if it worked

    By 404 Error not found
    I purchased the DNA kit, was notified my results are ready, and am so excited to view my results. Too bad that every time I click the view results button in the app it crashes. I’ve tried signing out and then back in, I’ve tried deleting the app and reinstalling it multiple times and nothing works. The only way I can view my results is to sign into the website and see them that way which means I can’t use any of the app specific features, like the Neanderthal photo. So again, great idea for an app, too bad it doesn’t work.
  • Interesting old history

    By shutter9099
    Interesting if tracing info over 500 years old. Does not provide current genealogy information. Get if interested in last 200 years of your ancestry. Way to generalized to draw very many inferences about where your ancestors migrated from.
