The world's first sequencing-based ancestry service

The next generation in ancestry tests is here. TeloYears Advanced Ancestry is the world's first genome-wide ancestry service to use next generation DNA sequencing.

That means double the ethnic regions of the leading health plus ancestry test for twice the possibilities for discovering the more complete story of you.

TeloYears Advanced Ancestry is powered by Centrillion Technology and the assay is performed at Centrillion facilities in collaboration with Telomere Diagnostics.

Over 100 times more genome-wide data

TeloYears Advanced Ancestry is a genome-wide DNA ancestry test that leverages next generation sequencing technology. This advanced technology enables collection of over 100 times more data than other methods, resulting in accurate robust data you can be confident in without revealing sensitive health related regions of the genome.

Have more confidence in your results with full mitochondrial DNA sequencing, for the most comprehensive and accurate maternal lineage possible.

62 ethnicities: 2X the leading health plus ancestry test.

If you are willing to get the more complete story of you, let TeloYears plus Advanced Ancestry trace your origins to 62 ethnic regions, more than double the leading health plus ancestry test.

You get 62 scientifically curated reference populations and hundreds of maternal and paternal haplotype groups representing worldwide ancestry populations and migration paths.

Plus we've got the first comprehensive East Asian ancestry and first Jewish grandparent estimate too.

Cutting-edge technology

Privacy Protection

Built-in Privacy Protection

We take your privacy seriously. We understand that a concern raised by genetic testing is the potential for sensitive information to be revealed or misued. That's why we have developed a proprietary method that reveals your ancestry information without compromising your private medical information such as disease risk. In fact, even if raw sequencing data was accidentally exposed, no meaningful disease information could be derived from it.

Future Proof

Future Proof

Other tests on the market use 10 to 20 year-old technologies such as genotyping, which provide limited information, and the results are not compatible with genome sequencing technology. You may find yourself wondering why they don't discover things you already know about your family history. With TeloYears Advanced Ancestry's next generation sequencing technology, you get more and future-compatible data. You don't have to worry about your data becoming obsolete.

Full Decode

Maternal Ancestry Fully Decoded

We sequence your full mitochondrial DNA, giving you the most comprehensive and accurate maternal lineage information possible. In fact, you can learn where your mitochondrial DNA places you on scientifically hypothesized branch points of human mitochondrial lineage as well as enable you to create your own maternal lineage group with your extended family.

Detailed East Asian ancestry

More than 1.5 billion people live in East Asia. That's about 38% of the population of Asia and over one-fifth of the global population. However, compared to European ancestry, East Asian ancestry is substantially understudied and as a result, leading ancestry tests do not provide comprehensive East Asian ethnicity information. TeloYears Advanced Ancestry offers the finest resolution East Asian ethnicity composition profile. Not only can you learn the percentage of your DNA that reveals Chinese or Japanese ancestry, you can discover your Han, Miao, Tujia, She, Naxi, Tu, Daur, Hezhen, Mongolian, Oroqen, Xibo or Lahu heritage.

Celebrate your Jewish ancestry

Are you Jewish? Suspect that you have Jewish roots? TeloYears Advanced Ancestry can determine your Jewish ancestry based on your DNA and estimate your number of Jewish grandparents. We can identify your Jewish genetic history from paternal and maternal relatives and determine the percentage of your DNA you inherited from Jewish ancestors.

Find your place in the world

TeloYears's DNA Diversity Space graphically displays how you are similar to and different from others. Humans share 99.9% of their genetic code, meaning we are all very similar. Also, all currently living humans share a common maternal ancestor and a common paternal ancestor, meaning we are all related at some branch point on the tree of humanity. Nonetheless, the 0.1% of our DNA is key to what makes us all unique. Really makes us appreciate the beauty of diversity.

Visualize your beautiful genome

We offer Chromosome Painting, a visual display of your ethnicity composition at the chromosome level. It's a unique and individual portrait depicting the ancestral story woven into your DNA. Because TeloYears sequences at least 12 million markers in your genome, over 100 times more than leading ancestry tests, you can examine your chromosome portrait in much finer detail. You can zoom into each segment of each chromosome.

A more complete story of you.

TeloYears gives you more because it's the actionable DNA health test that tracks your cellular age based on your telomeres combined with the world's first genome-wide ancestry test to use next generation DNA sequencing.

That's inspirational health knowledge plus your fascinating heritage in high definition.

Proprietary DNA sequencing technology

Scientists at Centrillion Technologies, Inc. ( were first to develop the comprehensive next generation sequencing-based DNA ancestry test as a part of our effort to make genomics accessible to consumers. The test is based on a proprietary design built into the DNA sequencing technology providing data that offers the highest level of privacy protection for consumers. We are glad to collaborate with Telomere Diagnostics to offer Teloyears Advanced Ancestry.

Centrillion is focused on developing advanced genomics technologies to enhance and improve life. We are also manufacturing DNA chips for advanced DNA sequencing and analysis. While we continue to help scientists solve life’s many mysteries, we also believe that it’s important for everyone, not just scientists, to understand and utilize the power of genomic technologies.
