[Watch] This is what happens to your DNA at the lab


Yesterday we announced the launch of MyHeritage DNA, our global DNA testing service for uncovering your ethnic origins and making new family connections.

Once you’ve purchased a DNA kit, received it in the mail, and taken a quick swab of your cheek, you’ll then send your sample back to the lab for processing.

In just 3-4 weeks your DNA sample will have been processed, and you’ll receive your results.

The DNA lab we’re using is the Gene by Gene lab in Houston, Texas, which also processes the Family Tree DNA tests.

Ever wondered what exactly happens to your DNA sample once it reaches the lab?
We’ve produced a short and informative video to walk you through the process.

Order your MyHeritage DNA kit today.

      Hi Heather,

      Of course! Just log in, go to the “DNA” menu at the top of the page, and select “Manage DNA kits” from the menu that appears. Then click on the three vertical dots to the right of your kit and choose “Download kit”. A file will be emailed to you with your raw DNA data.

      All the best!
