Geographic Clusters

During our analysis, we first attempt to compare your raw DNA data to overall geographic groups, then to specific groups within those overall geographic areas of origin. The human genome is extraordinarily complex, and EthnoGene has decided to simplify your overall geographic origins into several geographic clusters which are listed below.  



Even though we all come from distinct ancestral groups, there have always been widespread degrees of admixture and migration between these groups. A brief description of each of these groups is included under each region below.

Each of the 22 population clusters listed is subject to change, and our classification and terminologies may be modified in the future.
