DNA sequencing, a once distant, sci-fi fantasy that took over 20,000 CPU hours just 21 years ago has found its way into our hearts and homes through at-home DNA test kits.

But with so many different companies offering DNA tests that range from ancestry to health analysis — all of which, are available at highly-competitive prices — how does one determine which one is “the best?”

Fortunately, experts at The DNA Tests have stepped up to the plate to answer everything you’ve been curious about.

After experimenting with five major names in at-home DNA testing, The DNA Tests has produced side-by-side comparisons of the database sizes, research, accuracy, and privacy of:

  1. AncestryDNA
  2. 23andMe
  3. MyHeritage
  4. FTDNA
  5. LivingDNA

Throughout their review, The DNA Tests also answer common questions such as:

  • “What is DNA?”
  • “What types of DNA exist?”
  • “What is the autosomal DNA test?”
  • “What is the Y-chromosome DNA test?”
  • “What is the mtDNA test?”
  • “How do I choose the best DNA test for me?”

Whether you’re looking to learn more about your ancestry or want to gain a genetic perspective of your health, their comprehensive exploration of at-home DNA testing will match you to the kit that fits your needs.
