Africa Rising 2010: Three Paths to Dual Citizenship

members of the African Diaspora can now pursue citizenship in countries in which those from their ethnic group now reside. The test, which draws on DNA data from throughout Africa, shows you where the specific branch of your ethnic group resides today. It will not tell you where they were when your ancestors were stolen away, but then the borders established by the colonial powers were and are artificial and do not reflect the normal migration patterns that have held for millennia. We believe this DNA testing can be further certified by African scientists if necessary so that African [more...]

How does a DNA test tell you which nationality you are?

With the human genome sequenced, we have available tens of thousands of DNA samples with information on the ethnicity and national background of the people they came from. It is possible, for some countries and areas, to find patterns that built up when people were settled there for some time. So if your DNA matches those patterns, more or less, it can suggest your background. Of course, if your great, great, great grandparents immigrated to South Dakota from Russia and lived among similar immigrants, such a test is going to indicate a Russian nationality. And if they moved around between [more...]

Why You Should Have A DNA Ethnicity Test

Another important reason to have a DNA ethnicity test is to ascertain your legal rights. As in the case of many Native Americans of mixed ethnic backgrounds, establishing the fact that they really are a member of the tribe might entitle them to some hefty monetary benefits along with additional legal rights that are afforded to Native American tribes because they act as their own government. But many individuals have a DNA ethnicity test merely because they wish to learn more regarding their ancestry. In this day and age having a mixed heritage is something to be proud of instead of [more...]

Panel packs perspectives on race

The presentation began by showing a clip from the documentary “The Human Family Tree – A Migratory History of the Human Race,” which is about the Genographic project by National Geographic. The five-year project gathered DNA from people all over the world and managed to trace the geographical origin of human genes back thousands of years to Africa. It was only about 60,000 years ago that humans began to migrate to other continents, only 2,000 generations, or a blink of the biological eye. Hutchinson picked up the topic of the biology of race from there. He talked about how the study of [more...]

Traditionally, pregnancy-related genetic testing has been limited to prospective parents whose family history or ethnicity suggests that they may be at an increased risk for a particular genetic disease. One example of this is genetic screening for Tay-Sachs disease mutations in people of Ashkenazi Jewish origin.

Additionally, the ethnic distribution and prevalence of many genetic disease-causing mutations is not known. The Simple Solution Using only a [more...]
