SARASOTA, FL--(Marketwire - October 09, 2007) - DNAPrint® Genomics, Inc. (OTCBB: DNAG) today announced the formation of a strategic alliance with BioServe to provide biomedical researchers with clinical DNA samples that for the first time will include genetic ancestry data for each sample. With the added dimension of ancestry information to clinical samples, medical researchers will be able to determine whether certain biological markers are artifacts of genetic ancestry or are true markers for a disease or drug response in a disease. To create the genetic ancestry data, DNAPrint® Genomics will analyze and categorize BioServe's Global Repository® of nearly 600,000 human biological samples using its ANCESTRYbyDNA™ validated genetic ancestry test.
