AfricanAncestry.com Rolls Out Improved MyDNAMix Admixture Test for People of all Races; Enhancements Increase Accuracy in Estimation of Ancestral Makeup
Date:5/23/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 23, 2013

African Ancestry, Inc., the pioneers of genetics-based ancestry tracing for people of African descent, today announced new product enhancements to its myDNAmix Admixture product offering. For people of all races, myDNAmix determines various ancestries included in one’s genetic make-up from five distinct populations: Indigenous Americas (Native American), East Asia, West Sub-Saharan Africa, West Europe and India Subcontinent.

Originally launched in late 2011, the enhanced product features improvements in three key areas:
1) A More Robust Database of reference populations that is 20 times larger. Reference populations are the basis of analysis for determining ancestral mix.

2) Improved Statistical Variation allowing for more diverse data points and enriched analyses that allows for better representation in estimations of ancestral mix.

3) More Extensive Validation resulting in easier, more realistic interpretation of results. The enhanced Supplemental Results Report is easier to read and understand.

“As leaders in genetics ancestry testing, we are serious about helping people better understand who they are,” said Gina Paige, co-founder and president of AfricanAncestry.com. “myDNAmix has always been for people of any race or ethnic background and with the improvements, we’re empowered to deliver better results to more people.”

FINDING YOUR MIX
Available worldwide today at AfricanAncestry.com, myDNAmix is self-administered, safe and easy. Using swabs from the inside of the cheek, world-class scientists analyze specific DNA sequences inherited from one’s parents, and compare them to a worldwide ancestry database to best determine ancestral mix. The results package is delivered electronically
