AncestryDNA Database Hits 1 Million DNA Profiles

By Diane Haddad

AncestryDNA has hit a milestone 1 million autosomal DNA tests performed, an announcement made today in conjunction with the one about AncestryHealth.

That means the company’s results database has more than doubled in size over the last year. AncestryDNA joins DNA testing company 23andMe in surpassing the million mark; the latter company did so in April.
