Subject: Re: [DNA] DYS464 vs DYS464X results

This is a different problem having to do with reporting repeat counts. FTDNA or ARL rounded them when there was a partial. I don't know what they are currently doing. However, RG, SMGF, DNAH and DNAF/Advanced Lab report partials.

I'm probably the wrong person to answer you, but! I do not trust the DYS464.
First of all the peaks are either rounded up or rounded down.
THe only test the reads the peaks as they are including partical peaks is
the DYS464 extended.
FTDNA said a person in my surname group was... 15,16, 17, 17 but his DYS464
extented for which I have the electropherogram, reads 15c,15c, 16c, 17.1g
there never was an agreement between the companies... I just dropped it, but
my opinion.. test DYS464 extended only..
see his electropherogram at:
