National DNA Day: discounts on Living DNA test kits

National DNA Day is fast approaching. It's on Tuesday 25 April, and commemorates the publication in 1953 when papers on the structure of DNA by James Watson, Francis Crick, Maurice Wilkins, Rosalind Franklin and colleagues appeared in the journal Nature.

First out of the blocks with a topical discount is Living DNA. This testing company is based in the UK but is already making a name for itself in the global area since it launched last year. It says the Living DNA test is the world's most advanced, offering twice the detail of other ancestry tests. It breaks down your DNA mix across 80 world regions, including 21 in Ireland and Britain, and additionally provides details of ancestral migration pattens via your Motherline ancestry and, if the person being tested is male, Fatherline Ancestry.

It's good to see that the company will also shortly be introducing DNA Matching, giving researchers the choice to securely compare their DNA with other people's DNA in the Living DNA database.

You can find out more about the Living DNA test and enjoy a special National DNA Day discount by clicking on your preferred flag below (flag = currency and discount shown). The special offer is now live and will run until Wednesday 26 April.
