I noticed this old post when I was looking for something else DNA related. Decided it was time to do an update and make it this week’s DNA Saturdays post. Original post April 2019 – ZuyuanDNA Free Raw Data Transfers + $99 Kits. One major update is the $99.00 DNA kit is out of stock when I went to their website today. I have not seen reports on how many people have uploaded raw data from 23andMe and AncestryDNA, or how many have ordered the $99.00 DNA kit. Will check back on a regular basis to see when it comes back in stock.
From the earlier link above:
ZuyuanDNA is a Chinese company with a focus on Chinese relatives, but you may have Chinese relatives and not know it. There are also a number of non-Chinese couples who have adopted Chinese children. For example, Americans adopted 78,257 Chinese children between 1999 and 2016 – https://internationaladoption.org/6-statistics-china-international-adoption/.
What Personal Traits reports can I get?
You can get 5 Personal Traits reports on:
ABO blood group
Alcohol flush reaction
Warrior vs. Worrier
If you want the full 80+ reports, you have to order a kit from them: https://www.zuyuandna.cn/product-page. It’s $99 + shipping both ways (free shipping if you are in mainland China). You will need to authorize a Chinese physician to order health related DNA tests if you want health results. Their test looks at 700K SNPs and includes CODIS results as I mentioned above.
We ship to the following regions: Mainland China (free shipping), Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Belgium, France and Ireland.
Your order will be shipped from our warehouse within 3-5 business days via standard shipping methods.
You will receive the kit within 7-15 business days after shipment.
Your results will be ready in 6-8 weeks after we receive your DNA sample.
A PDF file will be sent to your email once your reports are ready.
You must be at least 18 years old to order ZuyuanDNA kit.
If you do not agree to authorize a Chinese physician to order health related DNA tests, you’ll only get reports on DNA relatives, ancestry estimates and personal traits.
Currently we do not provide pre-paid return shipping label for customers outside of Mainland China. When returning your DNA sample back, you have to pay an extra $7-15 to the carrier for the return postage.
How it works: https://www.zuyuandna.cn/how-it-works
We use leading DNA technology
Your autosomal DNA is genotyped by using a customized 700K-marker Illumina Asian Screening Array (ASA), developed by top genetic scientists in China, Japan, Singapore and other Asian countries. It is the world’s first Asian population specific gene chip, which captures 60% more DNA variants than gene chips used by 23andMe or AncestryDNA.
4.Our DNA database grows larger everyday, so do the databases of family member search Volunteer Groups in China.
Unless you opt-out, your DNA will be matched with both our Autosomal DNA database and Codis DNA databases operated by Volunteer Groups in China.
Autosomal DNA matching
Your Autosomal DNA data will be matched with every people in our Autosomal DNA database to find DNA relatives from as close as immediate family members to as distant as 4th cousins. When a new DNA relative match shows up, you will receive an email report on the details of the matched DNA relative.
Codis DNA matching
Your Codis DNA data will be transferred to all the major Codis DNA databases operated by family member search Volunteer Groups in China (you can choose anonymously or not). If your birth parents were already in those databases or join the databases in the future, you’ll be matched with them. We’ll notify you by email and SMS about the new match. The Volunteer Groups include: Baobeihuijia, Help For Family Reunion, Di’an DNA Reunion and Jiangyin Tracing Volunteers.
