I checked National Geographic Geno 2.0 sign-in page today https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/results/signin and they finally removed my results. I get redirected to https://www.nationalgeographic.com/sorry/genographic. It’s a shame as I hoped they would keep the results for longer as they originally indicated last year when they stopped offering the kits.
Genographic Project — July 2020 Update
The Genographic Project was launched in 2005 as a research project in collaboration with scientists and universities around the world with a goal of revealing patterns of human migration. Since then, nearly 1 million people have participated in The Genographic Project through National Geographic’s “Geno” DNA Ancestry kits. In accordance with notifications previously posted on the Genographic website, the public participation phase of this research project has ended and National Geographic has discontinued the Geno website.
Users of the Geno 2.0 Next Gen Helix Co-branded Kit:
Please contact Helix directly with any questions regarding your Helix account and Helix saliva sample or data retention policies. Helix shared with National Geographic only the portion of information resulting from sequencing the user’s DNA that was needed by National Geographic to provide the user with their deep ancestry insights. National Geographic did not receive or store any saliva samples relating to users of the Geno 2.0 Next Gen Helix Co-branded Kits.
