Gentera Ancestry Test

Every individual has traces of his parents in his DNA. Our DNA in the mitochondrial organelles in our cells has maternal origin. Y chromosomes in male individuals only have paternal origin. It is possible to find traces of our origin by scanning the mitochondrial DNA and the markers of origin on the Y chromosome. The journey of migration starting from South Africa, which Homo sapiens life is thought to have started, can be easily detected today thanks to the genetic inheritance left in all the regions where our ancestors passed.
