The full 43-markers results for the original poster were in fact all out
on time with no missing alleles. The list given was copied from a Ybase
record which can have up to 49 markers including 6 markers that we don't
test for - hence the zeroes.
To date, all DNA Heritage 43-marker test results have been out on time,
bar one which was received by the customer just under 12 hours late
because additional testing was required.
The full list of markers in our test can be found at
There is a demo Certificate and Report avaliable for pdf download at
http://www.dnaheritage.com/ydnapdfdownloads.asp (the link can be found
at http://www.dnaheritage.com/ydna.asp). Although customers can of
course view their results online, we haven't yet sent out Reports and
Certificates to customers. The reason for this is because we will
likely change the reporting of DYS461 and this has to be done in tandem
with other companies so as to cause minimum confusion.
Most people will be aware of differences between the Oxford Ancestors
DYS389 markers and other companies (there is a conversion calculator at
http://www.ybase.org/oacalc.asp especially for this). Some people will
be aware that GATA H4 is reported differently by FTDNA as compared to
DNA Heritage and Relative Genetics. The issue is not a difference in
measurement of the same repeat regions between different labs, it's
solely a difference in counting as there has been more than one
'standard' in use.
The DYS461 issue should be resolved within the next couple of days and
Reports and Certificates will be printed and sent out then. Until then,
please do peruse the pdf files.
