About Us

Established in 1995, DNA Diagnostics Center (“DDC”) was founded on the belief that the technological advancements in DNA testing should translate to services that are accessible and affordable to everyone. We have built an international reputation based on our commitment to reliability, innovation and value by offering DNA testing services for paternity and other family relationships, forensics, genetic trait tests for animal breeders and veterinarians, and now for ancestry research.

GPS ORIGINS™ CREATOR

“What we have discovered is a way to find not where you were born – as you have that information – but where your DNA was formed up to 1,000 years ago…What is remarkable is that, we can do this so accurately that we can locate the village where your ancestors lived hundreds and hundreds of year ago – until now this has never been possible.”

Eran Elhaik, Ph.D

GPS ORIGINS™ CREATOR

Dr Eran Elhaik leads a multidisciplinary team at the University of Sheffield, following a PhD at the University of Houston, two post-doctoral research fellowships at the Johns Hopkins University and an appointment as a Research Associate at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. Dr Elhaik’s research is dedicated to identifying important questions in biology and his research draws on computational and statistical skills alongside epidemiology and mathematics. Read more

Major research breakthroughs include the design of two dedicated microarrays for genetic genealogy. In 2014, Dr Elhaik and his team dated the origination of the most ancient human Y-chromosome - known as the ‘Adam’ chromosome - to 208,500 years ago. In the same year, he published the first geographic population structure (GPS) tool that uses DNA to predict the geographical origin of worldwide populations with extreme accuracy, down to a home village, in some cases. This tool led to the discovery of ancient Ashkenaz in Northeastern Turkey using the GPS technology.
