23andMe administers affordable DNA tests. Customers can order the test online and complete the entire process remotely by sending saliva samples, according to 23andMe. As of December 2015, 23andMe charges $99 for a DNA test.
Once a customer orders a DNA test, 23andMe sends a DNA kit that helps gather and store saliva samples. The customer then sends the kit back and receives the results in six to eight weeks, as explained by 23andMe. The DNA results include ancestry composition, family tree tool, DNA relatives, maternal and paternal lineages and Neanderthal percentage. An optional feature of 23andMe can reveal unknown relatives.
