23andMe Ancestry Composition Updates

With RootsTech 2018 in full swing, this week has been full of major announcements in the Genealogy and DNA industries. More breaking news has surfaced, this time from 23andMe. The company has announced a major product update – their Ancestry Composition product has now been expanded by 120 regions.

The increase in regions means that customers data can now be compared with over 150 populations and regions around the world. This is a major boost from the initial 31 regions, allowing for a much more detailed visualization of the geographic origins of your DNA.

These updates add to a set of features unique to 23andMe, including their Neanderthal DNA report; maternal and paternal haplogroups, tracing family roots back tens of thousands of years ago; and our chromosome painting which details the ancestry breakdown on each chromosome.
