Deep Ancestry on a Budget

(via Futurismic) After watching the segment in BBC's recent Time in which Michio Kaku had his mitochondrial DNA traced, I've wondered whether it was a commercially available service. Not that I've just a burning need to know what my mitochondria says about my ancestry, but if it was a cheap enough service it might be interesting to know. Well, here comes National Geographic to the rescue. For a C-note, you can trace your deep ancestry.

There's not room in the family budget for it just yet, but if we get a bit of breathing room, I might just see what a cheek swab can tell me about myself.
