The name

J2 IS THE GENETIC MARKER FOR DESCENDANTS OF THE ANCIENT PHOENICIANS, WHOSE REALM SPREAD ACROSS THE MEDITERRANEAN COAST FROM 1550 BC TO 300 BC.

The center of this mighty empire was in modern day Lebanon, with the cities of Byblos, Tyre and Sidon still standing as a reminder of a remarkable and proud history that is now shared among millions across the globe. Today, descendants of the great Phoenicians – carriers of the J2 DNA strand – can be found in just about every corner of the world, from the United States and Europe to Asia, Africa and Australia. So ask yourself: do you have an irrepressible love of life and a taste for the finer things? Then perhaps you too possess the party gene.
