The Tutankhamun DNA Project
Are you a direct male descendant of the Pharaos? iGENEA exclusively publishes the Y-DNA profile of Tutankhamun and starts the search for his last living relatives.
In the year 2009 extended DNA-tests had been carried out with the mummy of Tutankamun and other members for his family. These have only partially been published in February 2010. Despite several demands, the results of the Y-DNA tests have been shut away.
iGENEA was able to reconstruct the Y-DNA profile of Tutankhamun, his father Akhenaten and his grandfather Amenhotep III with the help of a recording of the Discovery Channel. The astonishing result:
Ordered by 9% of customers for an origins analysis.
Ordered by 75% of customers for an origins analysis.
Ordered by 16% of customers for an origins analysis.
Tutankhamun belongs to the haplogroup R-M269, which more than 50% of all men in Western Europe belong to.
