|(The Ulster Heritage DNA Project uses the Family Tree DNA firm to do genetic testing. Updates for our lab below) |
Family Tree DNA has the largest DNA database in the world for genetic genealogy. As of April 02, 2011, the Family Tree DNA database has 329,073 records. We also have:
|Launched on March 4, 2011 – Y Chromosome Phylogenetic Tree Update|
| We are excited to announce that we have updated our Y Chromosome Phylogenetic Tree to reflect new haplogroup sub-branches! Family Tree DNA, in partnership with the YCC, periodically reviews known SNPs in order to evaluate those that meet the requirements to be added to the haplotree. The SNPs that passed this review are now included in the haplotree and considered for deep clade testing.|
We now offer a universal deep clade test for $89. This will identify a customer’s terminal SNP for any haplogroup. If a customer has pending results for a deep clade test, they will automatically be tested according to the new tree.
If a customer has never ordered a deep clade test, they will have the option either to order the universal deep clade for $89 or order individual SNPs from the tree.
Follow these instructions for the new SNP ordering system if you already have results for the first 12 markers of a Y-DNA test–
