What is Y-STR Marker Testing?
All DNA tests allow you to identify your ethnic and geographic origins, both recent and far distant on your male descending line.
Y-STR 43 Marker Test:
Tests the Y chromosome for genetic matches between males. A perfect match of 37 markers means that two individuals matching shared a common ancestor in recent times. The customer receives a certificate and report generally describing Y-DNA sequencing and the meaning of probability between matches.
The tests will verify a common male ancestor between the tested parties. It may also give information on how many generations back this ancestor may have excised.
We may at a later stage do MtDNA Testing which assesses the DNA passed down on your maternal line through mitochondria within your cells. MtDNA testing does not provide as much information as Y-STR marker analysis and is much more useful in determining haplogroups or geographical ancestry.
