The extracting the genetic information from old and degraded DNA now become a serious and promising direction of biotechnology. In Russia, this kind of technological systems is fully developing only recent years, so building and testing the processes for degraded DNA extraction and reading is still important, as it makes Russia independent from foreign laboratories. Below we outline the authomated process designed and performed in Russia, and mainly the result of the experiment on Y-DNA haplogroup defining of two ancient burials from Kaliningrad Area. The obtained data allows defining the Y-haplogroup R1a with a certain probability. The paper outlines the experiment, testing process, and the obtained results for both samples in form of precise but scarce data. The experiment showed that the developed system manages with 1000-1500 year old samples preserved in acid soils prevailing in Russia. The technology mentioned and used in the test was developed in Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology by the Laboratory of Historical Genetics, Radiocarbon Analysis, and Applied Physics and was used in the project according to the agreement.
