AVC Anthropology Club to Raffle off Ancestry DNA Kit

UPDATE: The DNA drawing deadline has extended until Monday, December 4

Ever wanted to contribute to scientific research? Have you ever wondered where your ancient ancestors came from? The AVC Anthropology Club is raffling off a National Geographic Geno 2.0 Next Generation Ancestry Kit.

By purchasing a raffle ticket, you may win the opportunity to:

• Discover the migration paths your ancient ancestors followed hundreds—even thousands—of years ago, with an unprecedented view of your ancestral journey.

• Learn what percentage of your genome is affiliated with more than a dozen regions of the world—more than were possible with previous Geno kits.

• Have the opportunity to share your story and connect with other Genographic Project participants, helping National Geographic fill in the gaps in the human story.

Prices: 1 ticket for $5.00
3 tickets for $12.00
5 tickets for $20.00
