DNA discovery powered by National Geographic and Helix.

National Geographic has been charting the unknown for over a century. And, we’re exploring the next great frontier—your DNA story—through a new partnership. After you place your order for Geno 2.0, you’ll receive a DNA collection kit from Helix and you will have to create an online account with National Geographic and Helix. Once you’ve been sequenced, you can access your DNA insights through Helix and National Geographic for years to come. Helix is more than DNA sequencing—it’s your destination for DNA discovery.

Our revolutionary Geno 2.0 Next Generation test with Helix has been enhanced to offer the most up to date ancestry available and now has the following features improved over the original Geno 2.0:
  • Improved ancestral results using Next Generation Sequencing
  • More accurate regional ancestry—based on more than double the number of regions and 60 reference populations
  • Improved maternal and paternal haplogroup calls, and 20 new ancestral stories
  • NEW: Historical Genius Matches
  • Access to join Helix’s ecosystem of DNA apps
  • We tell your migration story of 500 years and past (not 500 years to present).

Geno 2.0 Next Gen with Helix now includes Historical Genius Matches through the analysis of your mitochondrial or Y-chromosome DNA. We will be using DNA haplogroups to tell you which famous 'geniuses' you could be related to. We are defining genius as masters of skill and or industry and intelligence. This is now part of the kit for all Helix users and not an extra purchase!

Introducing the next generation of our Genographic Project Participation Kit. This new DNA test—brought to you by National Geographic in cooperation with Helix—uses cutting-edge technology to give you the richest ancestry information available. We tell the story of 500 years and past. National Geographic designed Geno Next Gen based on the new technologies and insights that emerged since the launch of the Genographic Project more than ten years ago.

Join the more 800,000 people who have already taken part in National Geographic's groundbreaking Genographic Project—contribute to this real-time scientific effort and learn more about yourself than you ever thought possible.

By participating, you will:
  • Discover the migration paths your ancient ancestors followed hundreds—even thousands—of years ago, with an unprecedented view of your ancestral journey
  • Learn what percentage of your genome is affiliated with specific regions of the world
  • Find out if you have Neanderthal ancestry

How is this test different from others I see advertised?
  • Your purchase supports National Geographic Society’s nonprofit work in conservation, exploration, research, and education. The Society receives funds from National Geographic Partners, LLC, funded in part by your purchase. To learn more, visit
  • The Genographic Project results are based on discoveries made since the launch of the project, and the results continue to grow as more people join Genographic, and as our scientists make new discoveries
  • Our regional ancestry results compare your unique DNA pattern to that of 60 reference populations across the world
  • Working in 140 countries and with more than 80,000 indigenous participants, Genographic Project scientists created the most diverse results database and genetic resource of any in the world

What's included in the Geno 2.0 Next Generation Helix Genographic DNA Ancestry Test kit

The Geno 2.0 Next Generation kit contains everything you need to begin the journey into your past, including a saliva collection kit and instructions for submitting your DNA samples. You must have Internet access to view the results—results will not be mailed. Results are available online 6-12 weeks after our lab receives your DNA samples. Each kit contains supplies for testing one person.

You must send your kit back within 12 months of purchase. Helix will conduct the DNA analysis and will maintain your results. Please note, because women do not carry a Y chromosome, this test will not reveal direct paternal deep ancestry for female participants. Women will learn other information about their paternal side of the family, such as regional percentages, Mitochondrial and Neanderthal percentages.

How your participation helps the Genographic Project:

The Genographic Project is an ambitious attempt to help answer fundamental questions about where humankind originated and how we came to populate the Earth. Using the latest genetic and computational technologies to analyze historical patterns in DNA from participants around the world we seek to reveal our migratory history and to better understand the connections and differences that make up humankind.

As a Genographic Project participant, you will have the opportunity to contribute your data to our Genographic database, helping our scientists and researchers who are working to chart a comprehensive map of the early stages of human history. Participation in the Genographic Project database is your choice and is not necessary to access your individual results.

Please read the complete terms and conditions of purchase. If you are an educator, looking to purchase kits for your classroom, or home schooling, please contact 713-868-1807.

Who is Helix:

Learn what your DNA says about you. It all starts with Helix. Helix empowers everyone to explore what makes them unique—their DNA. The Helix world-class laboratory uses the most advanced technology to read your DNA, all from one saliva sample (amazing, right?). We assemble, store, and protect your genetic information so you can learn about your deep ancestry through Geno 2.0 Next Generation. Learn more about Helix.

Once you have completed the US saliva collection process, you will secure the tube inside the transport bag and mail the tubes and form off to the lab using the supplied US pre-paid postage yellow box. It can take the lab several weeks to process and analyze your DNA. In the meantime, you can visit the Genographic web site to see where your sample is in the analysis process.

You must read and accept the terms and conditions to participate in the Genographic Project. By selecting "I Accept" and clicking the "Add to Cart" button, you have indicated your acceptance of the terms and conditions to participate.

Return Info
Refund Policy
Due to the cost of the DNA analysis, once the kit has been opened, we cannot accept returns or administer refunds. If the purchase is for your first DNA Product, you may request a refund within 30 days of purchase as long as you have not yet received and registered your DNA Collection Kit. This refund will deduct shipping and handling fees and a $25 cancellation fee.

Once you have received and registered your DNA Collection Kit, your purchase can no longer be refunded.

If the purchase is not for your first DNA Product, it is not subject to refund. This policy is due to the informational nature of many DNA Products.
