The One Family One World project will analyse people’s DNA results from around the world to enable them to see where they fit in the One World Family Tree, and show how everyone is related if you go back far enough in time.
Using proprietary technology, artificial intelligence and machine learning, the project will see tens of thousands of computers working together to identify distinctive and shared patterns in people’s DNA. Over time, this will allow Living DNA to produce the most detailed genetic map of the world, enabling people to explore both their modern ancestry and ancient migration patterns.
Living DNA makes a great gift for almost everyone and around 30% of their tests are given as gifts.
They can send the testing kit to you, or they can send it direct to your intended recipient. If you want the kit sent direct to the recipient this can be done at the point of ordering-- simply enter a different shipping address to your billing address and the testing kit will be sent straight to their door. Unfortunately, they do not offer gift vouchers or gift-wrapping.
At this moment, unfortunately, due to the personal nature of the results, they do not have examples available to view or send by post. It is something that they are working towards with their team, and they hope examples can be made available on the website in due course.
Your ancestry DNA kit comes with step by step instructions to use the mouth swab; it’s fast and simple.
Once complete send the sample back to the lab for testing and they will deliver your results online with the option to request a printed version as well.
Your kit is shipped straight to you by standard or express routes, no matter where you are in the world.
