the question I put to Max is whether the new marker DYS724, for which primer
sequences have been published (by Alan Redd of the U of A team), is the same
locus as FTDNA's CDY. It is in the right place and could be predicted to
have similar repeat lengths and mutational properties. I think Thomas is
intending to add DYS724 to his list but it would save a lot of time and
effort if we knew for sure whether it is really a new marker or just CDY
under a different name.

> Primer sequences, from the U of A, good luck. I asked whether the
sequences for an autosomal marker being discussed could be sent and was told
that if I had kept up to date with the academic literature then it would not
be necessary. I retorted with a question as to whether it would be any
easier to find than some of the newer P sequence Y-SNPs and was promptly
shot down. Amazing how when you are in the audience you can be summarily
dismissed with a "next question please".
