Genographic Project Participation and DNA Ancestry Kit | US$199.95 | www.nationalgeographic.com
do you, at times, ponder over the whys on our very existence? if you do, then we bet you are as curious as we are about our origins. and when we said ‘origins’, we are talking about understanding our ancestries as far back as hundreds and even thousands of years ago and not just the recent events. for those who are itching to find out, you can start with the $199.95 Geno 2.0 – Genographic Project Participation and DNA Ancestry Kit, a project spearheaded by National Geographic in an effort to understand mankind’s origins. granted, the kit itself is in no way cheap but the resultant is priceless by comparison. the kit contains everything you need to begin the journey into your lineage discovery, including painless cheek swabs (sounds familiar? then you have watched too many CSI!) and instructions on how to submit your DNA samples to be analyzed. as a bonus, the kit box also serves as a handy container for storing your results after you accessed them online. it has been seven years since the launch of the Genographic Project and this new Geno 2.0 benefits from the new technologies and insights that have emerged since. which also means, more accurate and detail results about your ancestry history. pretty awesome, don’t you think so? check out a Genographic Project intro video clip after the break.
