the three direct-to-consumer ones I’ve tried out: AncestryDNA, 23andMe and National Geographic’s Geno 2.0 test.
If you’re looking at this test as a science experiment, using it as a way to get involved in research, or viewing it as a chance to learn about your genetic health risks, then this is the test for you. And if you just want to know your ancestry percentages and how much Neanderthal variants you have, the $99 version is a good bet. If you do opt for the full test, however, there are some considerations patient groups and genetic counselors would like users to take into account.
If the idea of tracing your family tree through the generations and connecting with distant relatives gets you excited — but you’re less interested in receiving health information — this is the test for you.
