DNATribes.com was one of our favorite DNA testing companies, but unfortunately, after 12 years of providing genetic ancestry analysis, they were closing their doors and discontinued their operation. DNA Tribes wasn’t accepted new orders from January 4, 2019.
I immensely enjoyed their website, especially their Digest Articles which were an excellent source for DNA testing fans. They mainly discussed topics related to world genetic structure and relationships. I’ve republished these studies and documents.
What were DNATribes?
- They collected your DNA at home with a quick and easy cheek swab kit
- DNA Tribes tested your autosomal STRs inherited from both maternal and paternal ancestors for the most detailed and comprehensive genetic ancestry analysis available
- Their test compared your DNA to over 1,200 ethnic groups and 32 regions exclusive to DNA Tribes
- Their algorithms were updated in April of 2015 with over 80 new populations including Greenland, Netherlands, Poland, China, Somalia, and Ghana and representing approximately 30,000 people
On the other hand, we have recreated some of their pages, in case, their customers need an explanation of their DNA testing results. Here are some of their restored pages: population database, sample results, FAQ, sample caucasian, and Digest articles.
I’ve always been interested in DNA testing and genealogy. My DNA testing research is approved by my teachers at the Boston University of Genealogy. I’ve been following DNA testing’s rise since its first appearance in 2006.
