The Global Match Test uses STR genetic markers on your autosomal DNA inherited from both your maternal and paternal lines to map out the peoples and places where your geographical genetic ancestry is most strongly represented.

A geographical deep ancestry analysis is performed by comparing the raw data from the DNA in your cheek cell swab against the information in our database which includes over 560,000 individuals from 1,200+ populations around the world, including 950+ indigenous populations.

Click any of the below heritage options for details of the populations currently in our database against which your profile can be compared.





South Asian


Native American


Modern Diaspora

East Asian




Middle Eastern

Using this process your best genetic fit amongst actual world populations can be identified and plotted on a map.

Your Regional Match Test report also includes a unique high resolution World Region Match analysis that measures your genetic connections to major world regions. Each region represents a group of related populations identified by our original analysis of world genetic structure.

Genetic Regions

European and Near Eastern Regions

Aegean: The Aegean Islands, Sardinia, Italian Peninsula, and Lower Danube River.

Arabian: The Arabian Peninsula.

Iberian: The Iberian Peninsula, Pyrenees Mountains, and Balearic Islands.

Levantine: Egypt and Eastern Mediterranean.

Mesopotamian: Anatolia, the Caucasus Mountains, and nearby parts of Western Asia.

North African: Berber and Arabic speaking populations of the Atlas Mountains and Sahara.

Northwest European: The British Isles, Scandinavia, and continental Western Europe.

Slavic-Baltic: Slavic, Baltic, and Uralic speaking populations of Central and Eastern Europe.

Native American Regions

Amazonian: Native cultures of the Amazon River Basin.

Andean: Peoples of the Western South America, including the territories of the historical Inca Empire.

Arctic: Paleo-Siberian, Athabaskan, and Eskimo-Aleut speaking cultures of Far East Siberia, Alaska, and Canada.

North Amerindian: Salishan, Athabaskan, Siouan, and Algonquian speaking cultures of North America.

Desert Southwest: Seri, Athabaskan, and Uto-Aztecan speaking cultures of Oasisamerica, including the Southwestern United States and Western Mexico.

Gran Chaco: Peoples of the Gran Chaco (“Great Hunting Land”) of South America.

Mesoamerican: Bribri, Mayan, Mixe-Zoque, Oto-Manguean, Purepecha, Totonacan, and Uto-Aztecan speaking populations of Mexico and Central America.

Modern Populations of Mixed Native American Ancestry

The mixture of Native American ancestry with other ancestry (such as European or African) is expressed in match scores for Metis-Mestizo genetic grouping (not shown). This mixture is most typical of modern Latin America Mestizo (“mixed”) cultures that have emerged since the period of European Colonialism, but can also be found in English and French speaking (Metis) populations of North America.

Sub-Saharan African Regions

African Great Lakes: The Great Lakes region surrounding the Great Rift Valley in eastern Africa.

Horn of Africa: The eastern African lands along the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden that face the Arabian Peninsula.

Sahelian: Populations near Lake Chad and the semi-arid Sahel, home to Sahelian societies that emerged along Trans-Saharan trade routes linking West Africa with the Mediterranean and Near East.

Southern African: Khoisan and Bantu speaking populations of Southern Africa.

Tropical West African: A large region including parts of West Africa facing the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean, as well as the Bantu speaking cultures of Southeastern Africa.

Central and South Asian Regions

Eastern India: The eastern Indian Subcontinent.

Indus Valley: The Northern Indian Subcontinent and Southern Central Asia, including homelands of the Bronze Age Indus Valley (Harappan) and Oxus (Bactria-Margiana) Civilizations.

Siberian: Indigenous cultures of Siberia, including Turkic, Mongolic, and Tungusic speaking populations living between the Altai Mountains and Lena River.

South India: The southern Indian Subcontinent, including the Dravidian speaking peoples of Tamil Nadu and many other cultures.

East Asian Regions

Japanese: The Japanese Archipelago.

Malay Archipelago: Island Southeast Asia, Thailand, and Cambodia.

Southeast Asian: Peoples of Southeast Asia, including peoples of Thailand, Vietnam, and neighboring countries, as well as ethnic groups of southern China.

Tibetan: The region including the Himalayan Mountains and the Tibetan Plateau and extends to the western provinces of modern China.

Yellow River: Han speaking populations of present day China, as well as Koreans and other ethnic groups living near the Yellow and Yangtze Rivers of classical East Asian civilization.

Pacific Regions

Australian: Aboriginal peoples of Australia and Papua New Guinea.

Polynesian: Literally meaning “many islands,” this region includes linguistically related populations living in a vast area of the Pacific Ocean encompassing Samoa and New Zealand in the west to Hawaii in the east.

Sample Results

Discovering your genetic ancestry is quick and easy with our home DNA testing kit. DNA is collected by lightly brushing inside your cheek and then returned by mail for lab processing. Reports for 22 and 26 Marker Kit Tests are identical in format and include a detailed comparison of your DNA to ethnic groups and genetic regions around the world.

Individual Example Profiles

The sample report illustrates the format of 22 and 26 Marker Kit results. The DNA matches for each person reflect that person’s unique DNA profile and only partly represent the full range of DNA matches possible.

Example Results with Commentary

Example result with commentary on how results can be interpreted are available for African-American, Caucasian, Chippewa/Ojibwa and Hispanic sample profiles.

The Global Match Test has been developed for osargenews.com by the world’s leading biotechnology company based in Virginia, USA. It allows individuals to have their genetic ancestry analysed based by STR genetic markers on their autosomal DNA which has been inherited from both their maternal and paternal ancestors. Using this system, each person’s DNA profile serves as a genetic fingerprint for that individual. These genetic markers are also the industry standard for court-admissible paternity and maternity testing because each autosomal STR profile is so unique to each person.

osargenews.com has commissioned the use of this highly unique autosomal STR genetic profile to measure a person’s genetic connections to populations and major regions around the world. This measurement is done by running a person’s profile against an autosomal STR database. Currently osargenews.com has access to 920 sample populations collected from 305,000 individuals, including 673 populations classified as indigenous and 195 classified as Diaspora populations, including multiple African populations from Africa and the world African Diaspora.

osargenews.com’s access to world region analysis is based on the subdivision of ten inhabited major world regions including: European, Near Eastern, Native North American, Sub-Saharan African, Central Asian, South Asian, East Asian, Native Central American, Native South American, and Pacific. These regions are further divided into 36 world sub-regions.

The Test

You will be provided with a sample collection kit. Samples are collected using very simple and painless mouth swabs that are gently rubbed on the inside of the cheek. This method collects loose cells inside the mouth and it is these cells that we test.

The osargenews.com Global Match Test looks at autosomal short tandem repeat STR genetic markers.
