How it Works
1 - Order a Helix DNA Discovery Kit
2 - Get sequenced
3 - Get your results from Ancestry Basics & Wellness Basics
4 - Discover again & again, from insights within our many DNA products
Whether you’re new to Helix or a current customer, download the Helix app to experience your DNA in a whole new way.
Ancestry Basics offers you a first glimpse into your geographical ancestry—the areas of the world where your ancestors lived throughout history. You will now receive your ancestry broken down in 26 unique regions and you will learn if you share traits with unique groups of people around the world.
Design is in our DNA so we've also made some small updates to improve the Helix experience & fixed some pesky bugs in the process.
Ratings and Reviews
It says they sequenced my genes. But the results say they’re loading and to check back in a few minutes. Well it’s been a couple weeks and I don’t know how many minutes they think a couple are, but they’re way off. Customer service is slow and just tells you what you want to hear but nothing is fixed. My boyfriend did his too and he has the same problem.

Thanks Diggs! Hope you enjoy all the new products on the Helix marketplace. Keep in mind, now that you're sequenced, future products cost less (we don't have to re-sequence your DNA), and get delivered fast (most within a few hours). Enjoy exploring! - CG
Awesome that they added these two new free insights on Ancestry and Wellness. I had done Geno 2.0 a few years ago and only just realized all the other things I can do with my existing DNA data on Helix.
