One of the best things about this offering is the FIND tool. FIND is a way to identify the type of DNA test that best suits the customer’s need(s). Through a series of very simple questions that guide the user step-by-step, the tool helps him or her decide between ethnicity tests, Y-DNA tests, or mtDNA tests. I had fun just playing around with it.
The company also provides information about genetic genealogy, including “How DNA Reveals Ancestry,” “Who’s Using Ancestry & Ethnicity Tests,” and “DNA Testing Resources“, just to name a few. There are some great sources of information listed on the DNA Testing Resources page, and at least one AMAZING resource, if I do say so myself!
DNA Direct is partnering with Ancestry.com to offer Y-DNA and mtDNA tests, and with DNAPrint Genomics to offer the autosomal tests. For more information about this announcement, see Eye On DNA – Hsien was one of the organizers of this new project at DNA Direct.
