The MyHeritage DNA kit is an autosomal DNA test for genetic genealogy, designed to discover and identify relatives and ancestors, through DNA matches with MyHeritage's genealogical matching database.
Humans have 46 chromosomes. The MyHeritage DNA test looks at the first 44 'autosomal' chromosomes, that aren't the X or Y chromosomes determining your gender, identifying linked DNA segments. It analyses the DNA inherited from your mother and father, four grandparents, eight great-grandparents, and so on - to provide you with a breakdown of your ethnic percentages and connect you with relatives descended from any of your ancestral lines within approximately the last 6 generations. Both men and women can take the MyHeritage DNA test, and the results are not limited to just the direct maternal or paternal lines.
