Ancestry DNA testing from AlphaBiolabs

If you are curious and interested in researching your family history, or you simply want to learn more about your background, ancestry testing can provide you with a clearer understanding of your genetic ancestry and provide a platform for further research about your likely ancestors.

Our DNA origins ancestry test can determine your biogeographic ancestry by providing an estimated percentage of ancestry from several population groups:

  • European – this group includes European individuals
  • African – this group includes people with roots in the Sub-Saharan region of Africa or North Africa
  • Asian – this includes South/Central Asian and East Asian populations (including Korea, China, Japan, and Pacific Islanders)
  • American – this group is composed of people who inhabit North, South and Central America
  • Middle Eastern – this group includes individuals from the Middle East and North Africa

Ancestry DNA testing does not state or establish a person’s race; but provides an estimate of genetic ancestry or heritage.

An example of a report detailing your ancestral breakdown in percentage terms could be as follows:

Biogeographical Ancestry Estimate
European 85%
African 0%
Asian 0%
American 0%
Middle Eastern 15%

About biogeographical ancestry

It’s important to bear in mind that these populations refer to a group of people with combined ancestry that live in certain geopolitical areas with ‘blurred boundaries’. As such, biogeography is used to describe your ancestral make up.

In defining your racial background, our DNA ancestry testing also delivers a statistical approximation of an individual’s biogeographical ancestry.

Biogeographical ancestry is a way of explaining the proportional ancestry of a person that is independent of race as frequently reported by social or political conventions. It describes populations that share comparable DNA markers because of a mixed ancestry, which could cross a number of geographical areas. After all, there is no biological definition of ‘race’.

What’s included in your Ancestry DNA testing fee?

  • A simple DNA sample collection kit containing cheek swabs with step-by-step instructions
  • A laboratory report detailing your ancestral breakdown in percentage terms
  • Please note: We will never share your DNA results or data with any third party organisations or DNA matching services

What are the founding populations?

The categories of the populations specified in the test report are used for conciseness and practicality. For example, European population indicates people of collective ‘proto-European’ ancestry, which includes not only populations residing within the European continent but may also encompasses the Middle East and South Asia.

Our definition of this population is based on evolutionary and anthropologic studies which show that these peoples’ common ancestor ascended from anatomically modern humans who travelled out of Africa approximately 50,000 years ago to inhabit the Fertile Crescent area of the Middle East: this today includes the counties of Iraq, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel and Syria, and also includes the territory between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers.

As a result, people living in Europe, the Middle East and South Asia (India) share common ancestral markers dating back 10 to 50,000 years ago. For example, South Asian Indians are found to have considerable, but lower, levels of ‘European’ markers while Middle Easterners display an elevated level of ‘European’ markers.

In the AlphaBiolabs DNA ancestry test, a typical South Asian Indian individual may display 58% European ancestry, while a Middle Eastern individual may have between 80–90% European ancestry.

Our reports aim to provide you with an interesting overview of your biogeographical ancestry.
