DNA Kits for Ghana
Help Find Relatives in Ghana!
Many people of African descent are finding relatives among the people of Ghana. We need your help to increase the number of Ghanaians tested. Please donate today towards the cost of genotyping so that many more will be reunited to their African ancestral families!
TAKiR use the Infinium H3Africa Array (Illumina) with 2.26 million markers!
Each DNA kit costs $138 including all fees. Each batch needs 48 kits for a total of $6,624 per batch.
TAKiR ships saliva collection kits to and from Ghana.
The H3Africa array design used by TAKiR was submitted by the Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa) consortium design team.
DNA extraction services are provided by the Freund Lab and genotyping services by the Functional Genomics Unit, both of the Roy J. Carver Biotechnology Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign.
Please give a one-time or monthly donation to support the efforts of identifying African American ancestral relatives in Ghana!
Thanks in advance!
