DNA Tests Trace Ancestry Identifying Specific European Origins
Online PR News – 19-February-2011 – – “Who Do You Think You Are?” is a question anyone can now answer with affordable ancestry DNA tests offered by DDC (DNA Diagnostics Centre), the leading provider of private DNA testing worldwide. AncestrybyDNA™, lineage, and European DNA tests offered by DDC use exclusive DNA methodologies and the latest population statistics to trace heritage back through time. DDC will offer the products Feb. 25 – 27, 2011 at the Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE national history show in London.
DDC's European DNA Test determines the best match of a person's DNA profile when compared to dozens of European specific databases, providing clues to a persons European origins. AncestrybyDNA™, already on the market in the U.S., uses a person’s DNA to trace their ancestry back to one of four main population groups as determined by migratory patterns from thousands of years ago. Population groups include European, East Asian, Sub-Saharan African and Indigenous American. AncestrybyDNA™ has been featured on television shows with celebrity subjects including Larry David, Jessica Alba and rapper Snoop Dogg. Also available are maternal and paternal lineage DNA tests that can trace back the ancestry of a person’s mother or father thousands of years by identifying unique DNA that passes unchanged through time.
“DDC has been a leader in the DNA testing industry for more than a decade, first with paternity and familial testing and now with ancestry and lineage testing,” Peter Vitulli, president and CEO said. “We’re always looking for new ways to provide customers with DNA evidence of who they are, and how they’re related to others. Ancestry testing can be entertaining and enlightening, providing an affordable way to look into our past.”
AncestrybyDNA™, along with maternal lineage, paternal lineage and European DNA testing are available at the exhibition with on-site DNA sample collection at DDC stand 816. DDC offers the testing during the event with reduced rates as low as £59. Each test is also available for purchase by phone at 0800 860 0856.
