HumanCode scientists developed a trait prediction methodology that inputs well curated scientific information to make trait and ancestry predictions customized for you. 

Our team researched hundreds of scientific papers to find well-studied traits that were part of large, publicized findings with as much ethnic diversity as possible. This helped us narrow our focus to over 40 fun and informative traits. These traits range from physical characteristics such as eye color, hair color, adult height, or being prone to freckles to preference indicators such as favoring sweet snacks.

For ancestry prediction, we use informative ancestry markers across your DNA to tell us where your family came from.
