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!

  • Doesn't work

    Results have been available at the web sites of Nat Geo and Helix for over a week but the app says that it's still waiting for the results....
  • Cannot get it to work.

    I received an email telling me my results were ready to view. Every time I open the app it tells me my results are not ready. I have deleted the app and downloaded it twice. I have signed out and signed back in numerous times. I have emailed three different “customer service” email addresses. Each time I received a message back telling me they can’t help, I need to email someone else. Very disappointed. Not even close to what was advertised. It looks to me nat geo is more interested in getting your money than providing the customer with what is advertised.
  • Wish it showed your Genius matches

    This is a revised review. Initially the app did not work, stating report no ready. App support fixed the problem within a few days. This program provides a nice presentation of the data and even includes a shareable movie!
  • Cool info, beautiful presentation

    I downloaded the app after using the desktop version of Geno 2.0, and I’m so glad I did! Geno 2.0 gives some really great ancestry info about your regional, deep, and Neanderthal genetic heritage. And all that info gets translated into this super cool video journey of your ancestors around the world. (And they have built-in ways for you to share it to Facebook.) And even the non-video presentations of the info really pop — particularly the globe! The only drawback is that the “Genius” results (seeing how closely related you are to historical figures like Genghis Khan or Queen Victoria) aren’t included in the app. But those aren’t the most important part, so it’s not a huge drawback.
  • Fun and intesresting

    So glad that National Geographic released this! I’ve tried other ancestry products and their apps don’t have much functionality. I love being able to take and share a Neanderthal selfie, and the personal video is just incredible. Thank you NatGeo!
  • Amazing!!
