Amazing amount of information for the price. Access to all of my own "raw" genetic data as well, which if you are in the medical field/research is the equivalent of having your entire genome sequenced! I now know that I am not a carrier for the most common heritable diseases (important if going to have children), as well as some important traits about how I might process common medications. Love that you can connect with family members who also sign up and as such broaden your knowledge of your background even more. Unlike other services, the ancestry part is based on your actual genes and not just on allele frequencies, which is an important distinction.

I received this kit as a gift after expressing interest in knowing more about my genealogy. It was very simple to use, the wait time for my results was very reasonable and they actually were available to me sooner than I had expected. My results were VERY in depth and easy to understand which I appreciated. The National Geographic geno website has more features to help you get a more in depth look at your genealogy, however I haven't had a chance to explore it just yet (I got my results very recently). I am very happy to be a part of this project with National Geographic and countless other curious people just like me, and I would absolutely recommend this product (and have) to family and friends.

I did the test for my dog and as expected, he was a true mutt. Lab, husky, pointer and some pit. It looks at a few features the dog has like the shape of the head or tail and matches to the common characteristics of other breeds. It was quite accurate but no different from a random person guessing your dog's breed in the park in terms of methodology. I think it is ok but it is not nearly as advanced as human DNA testing services. You won't learn much you already didn't know.
