Genomepatri Heritage, Mapmygenome’s DNA-based Ancestry Test Now Covers All of India

Hyderabad, June 9, 2022: Mapmygenome’s DNA-based ancestry analysis, Genomepatri Heritage, now covers all states of India.  Two new Indian states have been added to the Genomepatri Heritage database, thus providing complete data on the ethnicity composition of Indian population along with Mapmygenome’s global database.

“Earlier, Madhya Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir were not included due to lack of proper data from these states. We added data from those states, thus creating a comprehensive database of ethnicity composition for every state of India. As a result, there will be more accuracy in the data generated from Genomepatri Heritage,” says Dr. Sandhya Kiran Pemmasani, Vice President of Bioinformatics at Mapmygenome.

Genomepatri Heritage is built on a secure database of thousands of Indian samples collected over 22 years. It covers over 75+ global regions and provides exclusive insights into one’s global ethnicity composition. The heritage analysis has 99.5-99.8% data accuracy.  Genomepatri Heritage determines the percentage of DNA one shares with different ancestral groups.

The quest to discover one’s roots is quite popular in the west. Similarly, the pursuit of knowing their ancestral roots through DNA testing is gaining popularity in India.“We get around sixty samples per month at Mapmygenome, which evidently shows that people’s curiosity to discover their ancestral roots are rising,” says Dr. Sandhya Kiran.

Talking about the significance of Genomepatri Heritage in a culturally diverse country like India, Anu Acharya, CEO of Mapmygenome said, “Who we are and where we came from are fundamental questions that any curious human would be keen to find out. Genomepatri Heritage allows us to help individuals understand their origins.”

Genomepatri Heritage delves into the cultural, ethnic, and geographical diversity that forms one’s genetic legacy, with a specific focus on Indian ethnic subgroups and populations.
