We use genetics to answer historical questions about 17th century migration to the Chesapeake, and to understand how this migration has shaped today's genetic diversity.
Genetic Ancestry Testing
Over time, your DNA accumulates random mutations. Genetic ancestry testing, also called genetic ancestry, inference looks at these mutations to understand where your ancestors came from.
The Research Team
We are Molecular Anthropologists from the University of Pennsylvania.
We use genetics to answer questions about human migration and ancestry.
In the upcoming months, we will be recruiting individuals who can trace their ancestry to the 17th century Chesapeake colonies to participate in this study by taking the GenoChip 2.0 genetic ancestry test.
