Geno 2.0 is part of “The Genographic Project” at National Geographic and includes project participation with a DNA Ancestry kit.

“National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Dr. Spencer Wells and team designed Geno 2.0 Next Generation based on the new technologies and insights that emerged since the launch of the Genographic Project ten years ago. Using a custom-built genotyping chip, we test nearly 750,000 DNA markers, many of which have been specifically selected to provide highly detailed ancestry-related information.

“By participating, you will:

•  Discover the migration paths your ancient ancestors followed hundreds—even thousands—of years ago, with an unprecedented view of your ancestral journey.
•  Learn what percentage of your genome is affiliated with more than a dozen regions of the world—more than were possible with previous Geno kits.
•  Have the opportunity to share your story and connect with other Genographic Project participants, helping us fill in the gaps in the human story.

“What’s included in the Geno 2.0 Next Generation DNA Test kit: The Geno 2.0 Next Generation kit contains everything you need to begin the journey into your past, including painless cheek swabs and instructions for submitting your DNA samples (return postage required). Plus, we’ve designed the Geno 2.0 Next Generation kit box to serve as a beautiful keepsake to store your results after you access them online.”
