Subject: Family Tree DNA 59 Marker Update
Date: Fri, 19 May 2006 19:34:24 EDT
I just received this from FTDNA:
As one of our first customers to order the high resolution 59 marker test,
we want to thank you for your order. You may have noticed that we are
experiencing a delay with the results. As odd as it may sound, this is
actually turning out to be good news!
We are excited to announce that the lab was able to add an additional
panel of markers and will be reporting to you a total of 66 markers!
While this has caused a slight delay, we feel it is worth it to provide
the most complete set of results possible to our customers. The web site
is being updated to reflect the extra markers and the entire list will be
posted on the website tomorrow. The goal of course is to have the
FTDNATiP calculator and new GD Rules set for projects ready at the same
The samples are in the final steps of testing, the authentication process,
and we expect you will have them in about two weeks.
We appreciate your patience and hope you are as excited as we are with the
new developments and the additional markers from Family Tree DNA!
