I agree with your suggestion that as many people as possible should
upload their information to Ysearch.org.
But, I don't think you can add together the 9,000 unique 12 marker
haplotypes with the 7,000 unique 25 marker haplotypes mentioned on the
www.familytreedna.com homepage to conclude there are "16,000 12/25
marker tests", i.e., 16,000 potential uploads. The two sets are not
mutually independent and exclusive of each other. Are not the 7,000
unique 25 marker haplotypes a subset of the larger 9,000 population who
have had the 12 marker unique haplotypes, i.e., all 7,000 unique 25
marker haplotypes would have had the 12 marker test. All 25 marker
testees by definition also had the 12 marker test. So the potential of
unique haplotype uploads is not 16,000, as I see it.
