I need suggestions on a course of action.
Relative Genetics was our original study host/company. When they were
purchased we went to Ancestry. During both of these, we had members who had
irregularities at DYS385...a third repeat. I had Sorenson rerun ten members
and it confirmed the third "peak". I used myself as a control as I was
shown to not have the repeat. I still did not have the repeat.
I then had one of the members with a third repeat tested at FTDNA. When the
Kittler testing was done, it showed he did not have a third repeat at
This "mutation" had been identifying a subgroup in the study. If the
testing results are not accurate we may have to realign some of the family
Should I try and have FTDNA rerun the Kittler or should I try and persuade a
member with the suspected third repeat be tested at yet another company?
Any comments or suggestion you may offer will be greatly appreciated.
