Update September 15, 2018: I am in the middle of cleaning up this page to make it more alphabetical, but doing it initially in a different post to avoid accidentally removing stuff on this post and I will transfer the other post information to here once I have it done which hopefully will be in the next couple of weeks if not sooner. The new updated Links will include a large number of new items that I found through other research.
Updated: August 24, 2018: (if you are aware of a DNA testing company, app, website, blogs, browser extension or add-in, etc. that is not on this list, please let me know and I will check it out and probably add it; I believe people should know about what’s available and decide for themselves if they find value in a particular item. I have used a number of DNA tests where the experts say don’t take the test; in some cases, I would agree it was a poor value for the price, but in other cases, I found it no better or worse value or benefit than the major companies) ; updated July 24, 2018 by adding Genes for Good information and updating Xcode information as it changed its URL and made some other changes (it may be a few days for me to update Xcode as I work through the changes made). Updated July 20, 2018 with a comprehensive list of Helix tests and brief description of each one – In general, I don’t always include prices (made an exception for the Helix update, and generally don’t include sale prices in the Links section as they tend to come and go frequently, as they can change rapidly. July 11, 2018: Added a new company, GeseDNA Technology, that is focused on the Chinese market (mostly in Chinese). All links should be active. I tried to make all links open in a new window. If any don’t, please let me know. Also, the same if you run across a broken link. I didn’t add clickable links if I discovered the link no longer worked. I will continue to work on Links to make them easier to find stuff and as new companies, apps, blogs, sites, etc. are added, URLs change or become inactive.
This is a links tab page. On this blog post, I will include links to various DNA testing companies, blogs, and websites. I am updating this page during February 2018 so it’s a WIP (Work in Process) and I will update once I have finished it. As new sites become available, I will add them and as other sites go away, I will make a note and try to find a WayBack Machine link where possible. For the below sites that aren’t currently showing active links, my goal is to make all links clickable. Temporarily, you can do a copy/paste the URL in your browser. If you find a link doesn’t work, please let me know. For the different DNA tests, I put blood, cheek swab, or spit kit when I know which it is. On occasion, a company will switch from one to the other.
DNA Testing Companies (originally added in March 2018 with some changes or updates since then) – if you see issues or notice changes (often prices, new or discontinued tests, etc., please let me know).
I started with the DNA companies I tested with as a base, including the ones no longer offering DNA testing, as well as several companies I haven’t tested. Next, I used these two links as the next cogs in my DNA testing wheel – ISOGG‘s Wiki link (https://isogg.org/wiki/List_of_DNA_testing_companies) and DNA Testing Choice‘s website: https://dnatestingchoice.com/tests (note DNATribes and some other testing companies show as Not Available on ISOGG or DNA Testing Choice, but are still available – some duplication between the two sites – I tried to reduce the duplication where possible, and at some point will create a post that has all of the companies listed alphabetically, not an easy task, but it’s on my to-do list).
This first portion of the list is not in order as they appear on ISOGG‘s Wiki page (which is alphabetical separated into several sections), but ordered first by most popular tests used by many people. At some point, I will do a complete alphabetical list to be followed later by a separate section by type of DNA test.
23andMe – https://www.23andme.com/ (estimated over 8 million tested) – include basic to intermediate haplogroup information; (haplogroups are based on specific SNPs); spit kit.
Ancestry DNA – https://www.ancestry.com/dna/ (estimated over 13 million tested) – autosomal only, but they previously offered Y-DNA and mtDNA; spit kit at present, but originally a cheek swab.
MyHeritageDNA – https://www.myheritage.com/dna – (over 1.4 million tested with possibly closer to 2 million); accepts free transfers (will become free limited transfer as of December 1, 2018, but for those who upload before then, they will keep ethnicity results, chromosome browser, and other things that won’t be available for free to those upload after November 30, 2018) from most other major genealogical DNA testing companies.) Cheek swab.
Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) – https://www.familytreedna.com/ – over 950,000 autosomal DNA tested, but they have processed over 1.5 million tests, probably closer to 2 or 2.5 million, as they processed Geno 2.0 kits (still processing Geno 2.0 Next tests for non-U.S. testers) and they process MyHeritageDNA tests. They also offer Y-DNA, mtDNA, and various other DNA tests. Free limited transfers accepted from most of the other major genealogical DNA testing companies; full upgrade costs $19, but sometimes goes on sale for $10. Cheek swab.
Genes for Good: https://genesforgood.sph.umich.edu/ (Facebook app https://genesforgood.sph.umich.edu/facebook_app which is where you do the surveys needed to earn a free kit- a free kit as it doesn’t cost you money, but you have to spend a fair amount of time doing things to qualify for the free kit. I earned a free kit when they were only going to provide 20,000 free kits. It looks like they came up with a way to fund more kits. You can find at more about the requirements for participating by clicking on the Facebook app above, but here are some general guidelines: https://www.genesforgood.org/participate (not sure if they have updated the number of surveys you need to complete in this link, but it was 15 Health History Surveys and doing all the Health Tracking Surveys on two different days when I did it.) At the time I qualifed, they had seven Health Tracking Surveys; it’s at 10 now so 20 Health Tracking Surveys would still be two days worth if you did all of them for two days.
(At the time of this writing you must complete 15 Health History Surveys and 20 Health Tracking Surveys, although this is subject to change as more surveys become available.) – this information was current as of July 2018; will check back occasionally to make sure it’s still current as they have changed the minimum requirements since I took the test
Geno 2.0 Next Genographic Project (National Geographic aka Nat Geo) –
https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/ or https://www.helix.com/shop/national-geographic-geno-2-next-generation/ (for U.S. customers – spit kit by Helix; FTDNA processes non-U.S. customer kits – cheek swab). Check both sites since the price may vary between the two; usually it’s pretty close, but if an individual has previously taken a DNA test with Helix, they shouldn’t need the Helix DNA kit which will save the cost of the kit IF you order it through Helix)
Helix: https://www.helix.com/shop US supplier of the Genographic Project Geno 2.0 Next Generation test, but also offers numerous other types of DNA testing (see complete list in the later entry for Helix below – list was complete as of early February 2018, but they are semi-regularly adding more test options) – spit kit.
Living DNA – https://www.livingdna.com/en-us – matching available August – October 2018; offers free transfers from most other major DNA testing companies; however, the free transfer doesn’t include ethnicity (this may change as they are now indicating those who upload results by October 1, 2018 will get ethnicity results) or haplogroup information – you would need to pay for a test at LivingDNA (regular price appears to have dropped to $99 from $159) for these results. Cheek swab.
WeGene – https://www.wegene.com/en – free transfer for 23andMe and AncestryDNA kits. They offer kits, but you may need to read Chinese to order a kit; rough price is around $170 USD (depending on the current exchange rate).
DNA.Land – https://dna.land/ – URL is dna.land now accepts multiple kits, 23andMe v5 chip kits, and MyHeritageDNA kits. Free transfers using most, possibly all, major DNA testing companies raw data – over 115,000 have uploaded as of early August 2018, which is about 4,000 more than in July 2018).
YSEQ.net – https://www.yseq.net/ – Y-DNA (up to 116 Y-DNA STR markers as well as specific SNPs and SNP packs), mtDNA (several levels, from basic to intermediate to full), and full DNA (several options available depending on how many reads you want them to run and if you want certain other items). Cheek swab – for full DNA test, they send 4 swabs and you need to use all 4 to collect enough DNA for the full DNA test to work.
Full Genomes – https://www.fullgenomes.com/ – offers Y-DNA and full DNA testing. Spit kit.
Other DNA Testing Companies, includes companies no longer offering DNA testing, but who had offered DNA testing in the past.
23mofang.com – https://www.23mofang.com/ Chinese company and I don’t see an English translation link for it. (rough Google Translation of website – https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=zh-CN&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.23mofang.com%2F)
24 genetics – https://24genetics.com/en/ – target market is Spain, but it accepts AncestryDNA, FTDNA, and 23andMe raw data for a fee, final price depends on which results you want to pay for.
African Ancestry http://www.africanancestry.com/home/ – target market is those with African roots; only offers mtDNA and Y-DNA testing.
AfricanDNA (FTDNA affiliate) – link sends me to FTDNA when in the past, it was a separate site – https://www.africandna.com/ (get an insecure site warning on FireFox and it now redirects to FTDNA’s website if I choose to ignore the insecure site warning) Here’s an old copy of the website from the Wayback Machine: https://web.archive.org/web/20170308034935/https://www.africandna.com/
AncestrybyDNA (this is not AncestryDNA by Ancestry.com; AncestrybyDNA was renamed to HomeDNA not too long ago – link below under the HomeDNA section):
Wayback Machine as link is not working if you try the old site: https://web.archive.org/web/20170831141014/http://www.ancestrybydna.com/
On HomeDNA, you can also choose to upload your raw data from AncestryDNA, 23andMe, FTDNA, or National Geographic’s Geno Project for $39.00, but they often offer discounts as low as $19 a few times per year)
Atlas Biomed – https://atlasbiomed.com/uk – two tests (DNA and Microbiome)
Centrillion Biosciences (aka TribeCode) – http://www.centrilliontech.com/
http://www.tribecode.com/ – working now; $99 for kit and it was a Spit kit when it was available for TribeCode, but TeloYears uses one drop of blood – kit includes a lancet to collect the blood – price is $99 for Ancestry/ethnicity and offers several other tests; many people confused DNATribes and TribeCode for being the same company when they are two different companies.
Dante Labs – https://www.dantelabs.com/pages/home-usa – geared towards the European market.
DNA Consultants – https://dnaconsultants.com/
DNA Tribes http://www.dnatribes.com/ – two tests available: 1) 26 STRs, includes 13 CODIS markers; and 2) SNP analysis if you have tested autosomal DNA elsewhere.
Gene by Gene – the parent company of Family Tree DNA –
Genebase – https://www.genebase.com/
GenoTek A company geared towards the Russian market
https://www.genotek.ru/ (in Russian; I tried https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=ru&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.genotek.ru%2F and it wasn’t showing anything so I went to Chrome and went with translate automatically which worked somewhat better)
Genos Research Inc. – https://genos.co/
GeseDNA Technology: https://www.gesedna.com/about-us/ – company focused on the Chinese market; mix of English and Chinese in the link. If you read Chinese, you can access the main site at https://www.gesedna.com.
Guardiome: https://www.guardiome.com – as of August 2, 2018, it is now live again. It appears to be a work in process as some parts of the site aren’t live and others allow you to sign up for more information.
Helix (this one is kind of long as I tried to compile all of the tests they offer in one spot, not easy to do as finding the information in one spot on their website wasn’t easy) U.S. supplier of the Genographic Project Geno 2.0 Next Generation test among numerous other options. https://www.helix.com/shop Helix (prices may vary as individual tests go on or off sale and sometimes the Helix kit is free or reduced price ($20 or $30 instead of $80; also if you previously tested an individual with Helix, you generally don’t need to order another Helix kit – simply click on the already have Helix kit). If one of their employees is to believed, the goal is to provide your raw data if you are willing to pay $600 although in one place, it references $499 if you want the raw data, but I haven’t found a way to order it so don’t know how much it costs. Hopefully, Helix rethinks charging for raw data since other companies provide your raw data for free.
As always, check the price before ordering as the prices below were current as of a the afternoon of July 20, 2018 before this post went live, excluding any sale prices for tests or Helix DNA kits.
Some of the tests only provide your result if you use iOS devices (Apple devices – iPhones, iPads, etc.) so check before ordering if you don’t have access to an iOS device. For third party tests, you will usually need to sign up on the third party site to access your results. Helix will give you a link on its site that takes you to the third party site.
In general, if the Helix DNA kit isn’t on sale, it’s $80 for an individual kit and $160 if you need two kits (for example, the Baby Glimpse test requires a kit for the mother and a kit for the father so if you need kits for both parents, it’s $160). If you already have a kit or have ordered a kit, then you should click on the checkbox that says I already have or registered my Helix DNA kit. Also, sometimes, a particular test will have a sale on the Helix DNA kit which is typically $20 or $30, but occasionally free. NOTE: the discounted kit price only applies to the test it shows up for. However, once you order the kit, you should be able to do the checkbox saying you have a Helix kit. For example, DNA Passport had the Helix DNA kit on sale (as of July 20, 2018) for $20 instead of the usual $80. If you wanted to order the BabyGlimpse kit (its two kits are also on sale for $100 – you get two kits so it’s $50 each as July 20, 2018), it would be a few cents cheaper to order two DNA Passport tests and Helix DNA kits (one for mother, one for other), then order the BabyGlimpse test, and click on the already have Helix DNA kits for one partner, then click on the new link and say already have a Helix DNA kit; few more steps, but worth saving the extra money). For a few cents less, you get BabyGlimpse and two DNA Passport tests
For any individual, you only need one Helix DNA kit as the company processes the DNA once. If you order additional tests, they take the original DNA raw data results and pull the appropriate parts of the DNA from the original processing to apply to the new test.
Here’s the general Helix list on their website, but you need to click on each item as it doesn’t show the pricing for them on this link: https://www.helix.com/store/all (lists all the DNA related items Helix offers). For simplicity sake, I included a link to the test below and the link to the company for the third party tests. I try and include any on sale in the monthly DNA Sale post I make for the month and I usually make the current monthly DNA sale post sticky.
Discover which of your unique traits may have been inherited from our Neanderthal ancestors—like muscle growth, skin color, and cognitive ability—and why they matter today.
Here are my Neanderthal results from Helix compared to my results from several other companies: https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/2018/06/09/neanderthal-dna-comparison-between-three-companies/ It’s really four tests now as I added my Neanderthal results from Geno 2.0 Next.
Geno 2.0 by National Geographic (Nat Geo; link for Nat Geo is to ordering the kit directly from National Geographic) $199.95, sometimes on sale as low as $69.99 + $80.00 for Helix kit with one time where they lowered it to $49.99, but occasionally Helix DNA kit as low as $30.00 (kit is generally free if you use the National Geographic link to purchase the test, but they often charge more than Helix to offset the kit cost); also check Amazon or National Geographic as they sometimes offer cheaper prices than Helix.
Discover the migration paths your ancient ancestors followed, and learn the details of your ancestral makeup.
Geno 2.0 Next is processed by Helix (spit kit) for U.S. residents and by FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA – cheek swab) for non-U.S. residents. It includes basic to intermediate haplogroup results (mtDNA for males and females, and Y-DNA for males although the Y-DNA can be a lot deeper than 23andMe’s Y-DNA haplogroup estimate). Before National Geographic switched to Helix for U.S. kits, FTDNA processed Geno 2.0 and earlier kits.

DNA Testing Companies not listed above:
ChoiceDNA: https://www.choicedna.com; see chart below for tests offered:
- Ancestry lab testing: For those who are interested in genealogy, these tests can provide a fascinating peek into your family history. This will help determine where your ancestors migrated from, and may open many new doors to discover. Call us for pricing details.*
- Infidelity lab testing: There are times in life when you may suspect that someone is being unfaithful. We can provide answers through our DNA testing, which examines an object (clothing, condoms or a variety of other things) for the presence of DNA that is not recognized. This means that if the DNA comes from someone other than you or your significant other, it could be a sign of infidelity. We will provide the results with the utmost discretion and care.
- Noninvasive prenatal testing: This state-of-the-art option uses blood samples from the mother and the alleged father to determine if they are both the baby’s biological parents. DNA from the baby is present in the mother’s blood while she’s pregnant, so this is why this works. We also offer a more traditional method of prenatal testing, which tests the amniotic fluids in the placenta. b
- Court Admissible DNA testing: If a couple is not married at the time a baby is born and there are questions about who the father is, the court will likely order a DNA test to determine the facts. This is an important step in establishing child support or custody issues. The test will be administered following all legal rules, so it will be admissible in any court of law across the country. (NOTE: not all states or countries allow DNA testing for paternity and in some places, proving you aren’t the parent doesn’t get you out of paying child support)
- Immigration DNA testing: Any family that wants to immigrate to America will have to produce documentation proving who they are. In many cases, these documents (such as school records) aren’t enough to ensure immigration, so the government may request that a DNA test be performed to prove the family relationship. We’ll take care of every detail and ship the results to the immigration office for you.
- Forensic testing: This type of DNA testing can be very helpful in solving a crime, so we regularly work with law enforcement agencies and investigators. But it is also beneficial when it comes to issues about inheritance or whether someone is related to a deceased person. We’re experts in this area and are here to help. (NOTE: several types of testing offered; see link for details)

GEDmatch: https://www.gedmatch.com/login1.php For GEDmatch Genesis, go here: https://genesis.gedmatch.com/login1.php (good if you tested with 23andMe v5 chip and certain other DNA companies that don’t yet work with GEDmatch)
GenomeMate Pro: https://www.getgmp.com/
Promethease: https://www.promethease.com/ (You have to agree to the various statements to use the site) – runs $5 for most kits, but slightly more if the zipped file is much larger than the old v3 23andMe zipped files (mainly sites like DNA.Land, probably Helix if you get access to your raw data from them, and any other company that has a fairly large zipped file)
Google Play DNA apps: https://play.google.com/store/search?q=DNA (check with Android device to see if a specific app is compatible) – you need to use either an Android device or Chrome web browser. Also see below for specific DNA apps.
iOS (Apple) apps: https://www.appstoreapps.com/?s=DNA (check with your Apple device for compatibility with specific DNA apps) – you need to use an Apple device to access the apps.
Sequencing: https://sequencing.com free to upload results; for larger files (like DNA.Land), you will have to download and use their uploader to upload. Uploads are free and some of the apps on their site are also free, but some cost with prices ranging as low as 99 cents to $199. At least one app is free for the first time you use it, but then costs $10/year if you want to use it a second or subsequent time – unclear if the free to use first time only applies to one DNA kit you uploaded as I haven’t tried it yet). Free apps (you will have to add the ones you want to use and wait for the app to process the DNA sample you choose) include:
Weather My Way + RTP
Weather My Child’s Way + RTP (pre-order as not available yet)
Supplements My Way + RTP (also pre-order)
Genome Overview (free for first use; $10/year if you want a second use)
Variant Discovery (may only work for some types of DNA)
Google Chrome specific apps, extensions:
Snavely DNA Helper Tool: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ancestrydna-helper/hjflmfphflaeehhpdiggobllgffelfee?hl=en-UShttps://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ancestrydna-helper/hjflmfphflaeehhpdiggobllgffelfee?hl=en-US (need to use Google Chrome to use the app; some report it no longer works for them, but others report no problems).
529andYou (only works with 23andMe DNA): https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/529andyou/nekcpognkifhchlmgddjajmaiplidfhn?hl=en-US
FireFox specific apps/add-ons:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?platform=windows&q=DNA (these only work if you use the FireFox web browser)
