Great, Debbie!

Will there also be a comparison chart for autosomal DNA test types? SNP and STR? I see there is a lot of confusion around about these tests and what they do.

Also: 23andMe is not on the chart, and I see that many new testers seem to prefer their "package" test which looks like it includes everything (even if it does not). 23andMe is not easily compared to the others, however. I'm not sure if I want to give at a try at the moment - perhaps someone else will?

Subject: [DNA] DNA testing comparison charts

We now have new Y-DNA and mtDNA testing comparison charts on the ISOGG wiki.
The intention is that these charts will replace the existing charts on the
main ISOGG website. Because they are on the wiki they will be easier to
maintain and keep up to date:

The Y-DNA chart can be found here:

The mtDNA chart can be found here:

Both charts are also linked from the home page of the ISOGG Wiki under
genetic genealogy resources:

Amendments to these charts can only be made by ISOGG members who are
registered users of the ISOGG wiki.

If anyone has any changes or updates to these charts perhaps you could amend
the wiki accordingly or provide details on the list so that we can make the
necessary corrections.

Best wishes
