FTDNA does report in alleles. Our certificates now only list allele
values for our current 21 markers. The conversion chart is an aid to
handle the 'sins of the past' :)
We will only be reporting in alleles from this time forward...actually
all certificates values were changed beginning a few weeks ago to the
standard scientific nomenclature.
For everyone's general knowledge the lab at the U of A is calibrated to
the NIH and FBI because the U of A collaborates with these folks in
studies ad marker identification.

FTDNA has posted their 21 DYS# markers, plus the offset values to
their Certificate Scores to match conventional reported alleles at:
Why don't they just report scores using conventional allele numbers?
