National Geographic and IBM started the Human Genome Project to produce a sequence of DNA representing the functional blueprint and evolutionary history of the human species. Once you have completed the cheek swabbing process, you will secure the swabs inside the transport tubes, complete the informed consent form and mail the tubes and form off to the lab using the supplied envelope. The project draws on experts in human population genetics and related disciplines, located at 11 research laboratories and universities. The project also invites the general public to join in, submit a sample for the broader research project, and get information about their own ancestry.
Over the next couple of weeks I'll be updating all the results from these test and posting them here in our blogs and when the Genographic results are in add those to the mix.
Navigenics - costs vary because the test is generally done through a doctor or clinic. The tests may or may not include ancestry testing and in the case of the DNA Ancestry Project or the Genographic Project, it is only ancestry type information, not the medical information that is the basis of 23andMe, deCode or Navigenics.
If you're interested in finding out more, I'll be doing posts over the coming weeks and of course definitely take in Spencer Wells Deep Ancestry presentation at the Jack Singer Concert Hall on February 7th. Genes for strong muscle fibers and for meat-eating appear narrowly shared, researchers reported, among species as distinct as the African lion and Asia's snow leopard. Scientists mapped the genes of the endangered Siberian tiger (or Amur tiger), both to understand the genes that make big cat species distinct from one another and to aid efforts to preserve genetic diversity in wild tiger populations. The largest tiger subspecies, Siberian tigers weigh as much as 660 pounds (300 kilograms) and grow to some ten feet (three meters) in length. Bhak and colleagues sampled genes from a nine-year-old male tiger at the Everland Zoo in Korea, and compared them with gene map information from the Bengal tiger, lion, and snow leopard. Some gene differences are apparent in the mapping, such as two genes likely involved in adaptation to high altitudes and thin air in snow leopards and white fur in white African lions. But overall, the cat family seems to rely on a narrow set of 1,376 genes linked to strong muscle fibers and digestion of protein, the study shows, seen widely across the study species.

Simply mapping the tiger genome represents a significant advance for researchers, said forensic geneticist Thitika Kitpipit of Thailand's Prince of Songkla University, who led a team that recently completed a map of the maternal genes, or mitochondrial DNA, of tigers. With more wildlife officials debating the introduction of some big cats to preserves in a bid to diversify wild populations, a gene map is a first step in understanding the genetic landscape of big cats, Bhak said. Cientificos de todo el mundo acaban de anunciar un gran hito en la ciencia del secuenciado de ADN al lograr crear el primer "bosquejo" de la secuencia del ADN del Hombre de Neanderthal, un ser muy similar al ser humano de hoy dia que se dividio evolutivamente de nosotros hace unos 450,000 anos, y que se extinguio hace unos 30,000 anos (si quieres saber como, hablo brevemente al respecto en Maquinas en el Paraiso).Segun los cientificos trabajando en este proyecto, ya han secuenciado el 60% del ADN de este primo de nosotros, por lo que se estima que el 100% sera completado muy proximamente. This new DNA test uses cutting-edge technology to give you the richest ancestry information available.
Titanic, thought he knew everything about his ancestry, with a genealogy that traces back to the British Isles and Holland. The project is using the latest technology in DNA analysis to create a genetically-based map of human migration. Sounds like an interesting project so what is a journalist turned Genome Alberta Communications Director supposed to do other than join the project !
I've done this before and this will be another chance to compare results across tests and to walk readers through the process.
You go online, order the kit, it arrives in the mail with a prepaid shipping envelope, you provide the sample, then send it all back and wait for the results. Only about 450 Siberian tigers exist in the wild, and around 4,000 tigers total are thought to remain in their natural habitats.
The genes likely originated in large part with the earliest common ancestor of big felines some 11 million years ago, the study authors suggest. Petersburg, Russia, to work toward saving the tiger in the wild amid increasing reports of poaching and declining wild populations in Asia.

In the meantime, you can visit the Genographic web site to see where your sample is in the analysis process and learn about current processing times.
While most of his DNA agrees with this story, he learned something unexpected from his Geno 2.0 resultsa€”his genome is about 2% Oceanian, connecting him to the first seafarers who settled the islands off the coast of southeast Asia around 50,000 years ago, probably via the Dutch side of his family.
23andMe require a saliva sample and it can be a challenge to fill the 'spit kit' if your mouth is dry. Spencer Wells and team designed Geno 2.0 based on the new technologies and insights that emerged since the launch of the Genographic Project in 2005. You must read and accept the terms and conditions to participate in the Genographic Project. By selecting "I Accept" and clicking the "Add to Cart" button, you have indicated your acceptance of the terms and conditions to participate.
Using the latest genetic and computational technologies to analyze historical patterns in DNA from participants around the world, our team of world-renowned scientists led by Dr. Spencer Wells, seeks to reveal our migratory history and to better understand the connections and differences that make up humankind. As a Genographic Project participant, you will have the opportunity to contribute your data to our Genographic database, helping our scientists and researchers who are working to chart a comprehensive map of the early stages of human history.
Read Cara Santa Maria's interview with Spencer Wells here. Due to the cost of the DNA analysis, once the kit has been opened, we cannot accept returns or administer refunds. Results are available online via confidential Genographic Project ID 6-8 weeks after our lab receives your DNA samples. Please note, Because women do not carry a Y chromosome, this test will not reveal direct paternal deep ancestry for female participants.
