How did Trace Genetics then get the P40 information necessary to do P40

very frustrating for us as there is nothing whatsoever we can do here -
there is no reason I can see for delaying publication and it reflects poorly
on those holding the keys. Sorry to all those who wished to be tested for
these markers, but we are entirely beat here.
