Chief Scientific Officer: CRI Genetics is led by Alexei Fedorov, a molecular geneticist with over 35 years of experience studying DNA. A former apprentice of Nobel Prize winning scientist Walter Gilbert, Alexei has created a patented DNA analysis algorithm using the latest breakthroughs in genetic science.
Alexei’s Vision: Alexei Fedorov’s lifetime goal has been to advance Mankind’s understanding of the human genome into new frontiers. His vision for CRI Genetics is to help you use your DNA to get to know yourself in the most personal way possible. There is a treasure trove of secrets hidden in your genetic code. These secrets can not only give you insight into your ancestry, but can even help you make decisions that lead to a happier, healthier life. That is the mission of CRI Genetics.
What Makes Us Different: Our reports are based on actual genetic research. As a professional geneticist who has authored hundreds of projects, Alexei Fedorov is at the forefront of the latest advancements in genetic science. CRI Genetics uses his expertise to deliver you information that you can use to raise your understanding of yourself to a higher level.
CRI Genetics has a unique approach to genealogical testing. We are an advanced team led by a professional molecular geneticist who has been studying DNA for over 35 years with the help of Nobel Prize winning scientists. At CRI Genetics, we have the education, tools, and skills to provide you the most accurate estimation of your BioGeographical Ancestry.
We combine Genetics with Anthropology to trace the migrations of the human race. When we test your DNA against the samples from around the globe, we can figure out where you fit in the rich history of our species.
Our tests examine 642,824 specific markers across your entire genome. These markers are hand-picked based on the latest breakthroughs and advancements in genetic science. These markers are specially chosen for their relevance to tracing ancestry, so that we can provide you with the most statistically likely estimation of your heritage.
It’s a refreshingly simple 3 step process:
We’re glad you asked! We are one of the only DNA testing companies that offer any kind of money-back guarantee. We guarantee to deliver your genetic reports in fewer than 8 weeks.
Those 8 weeks begin the day that our lab receives your DNA sample, provided your DNA passes quality analysis.
Your DNA passes quality analysis based on these factors:
If we run into any issues, we will let you know right away. We will gladly issue you a new kit free of charge if we need to.
Unfortunately, it’s impossible to provide a 100% correct evaluation of your ancestry without having DNA samples from every ancestor going back 200,000 years.
However, we are able to provide a research-grade estimation of your BioGeographical Ancestry. Genealogical testing is much like predicting the weather: it’s not possible to be 100% correct all the time, but we can at least be mostly correct most of the time by observing patterns, knowing history, and using statistics. In our case, our results are typically 99.9% accurate, which is a little better than trying to predict the weather.
Your “BioGeographical Ancestry” is a description of your place in the evolutionary and geographical history of our species. It’s simply a breakdown of where your genes come from, according to the results of your DNA tests.
Some might define it as “race” or “ethnicity,” but we don’t feel that these terms adequately communicate the complexity of the science and history behind the information that we give you.
The simple answer to this is no. Our tests will identify your most statistically likely BioGeographical Ancestry, but the results are not intended to provide legal proof that you belong to a specific race. Many of the reasons why are detailed in the answers to previous questions. Race is a complex thing to define when ancestral genes are not passed down in a consistent, predictable manner.
Many users are attempting to verify Native American ancestry. If that’s the case for you, check with the rules of the specific tribe you think you might belong to. Each tribal government has its own set of laws as to how to identify indigenous citizenship. For example, many tribes will recognize your citizenship ONLY if your indigenous heritage is through your mother. In this example, even if your father is 100% Native American, you won’t qualify for tribal citizenship if your mother has no indigenous ancestry. Again, laws vary from tribe to tribe, so go by their guidelines if you’re trying to verify Native American ancestry.
Also keep in mind that the complex anthropological history of human migration can allow for someone of European descent, whose family has been in Europe for centuries and only intermingled with other Europeans, to have some ancestry from the other haplogroups around the globe. Such a person could have up to 10% Native American BioGeographical Ancestry, despite having a family history of never setting foot in the Americas.
