Scientist's gene test traces Pictish roots

SO YOU RECKON YOU'RE SCOTS?
Scientist's gene test traces Pictish roots
By Dean Herbert

HELP is at hand for the millions of people around the world who claim to be Scottish.

A new test will be able to prove if that's just wishful thinking or if someone really has a Caledonian connection.

A leading scientist has developed a "Scottishness" test that searches people's DNA to trace their origins.

Geneticist Dr Jim Wilson is offering the 130 diagnosis, which determines how Scottish people are.

He has identified a genetic pattern which can determine whether a person is descended from Scotland's ancient inhabitants, the Picts, and can test people for traces of their genes.

Dr Wilson says he wants to target Americans eager to seek out their Scottish ancestry.

The test involves checking a saliva sample against 27 genetic markers.
