The Indigenous DNA Database allows individuals who have tested their Y-DNA SNP markers or mtDNA markers to compare their DNA against the published markers of indigenous population groups from around the world to see which indigenous groups are the closest match to their DNA type.

Dynamic database content:

Scientists are racing against time to document the DNA type of the world’s existing indigenous population groups. The Indigenous DNA population database is updated whenever new population data is published.
