I was advised that I would be positive for L1335 and L1065 (based on my STR values.
I have since tested negative for L1335...any suggestions?

I don't know; I would never have guessed that you would be L1335+. For one thing, you are a fairly close match for kit 145001, and he tested L1335- back in November of last year. In fact, he has tested negative for nearly everything downstream of DF13, including Z251. I could be missing something, but the only thing I can see that he hasn't tested for is L371. That's a small subclade, so the odds are against you there. Does Geno 2.0 test for that? If so, then 145001 is negative for it, too.

You might want to give the new Chromo2 test from BritainsDNA a shot or, if you feel like splurging, the full y genome test (for about $1300).

I ran your submission (N21163) through my L21 SNP predictor and received the following analysis:

L1065 - 0 % probability - only 2 of 8 match of fingerprint
L1335M - 0 % probability - only 2 of 8 match of fingerprint
L1335P - 0 % probability - only 4 of 15 match of fingerprint
L627 - 10 % probability - 7 of 13 match of fingerprint - very speculative test (1 of 10 chance of testing positive)

My predictor only works for more recent YSNPs. I looked MikeW's spreadsheet for any match to one of his signatures
and found you assigned to z1014c. Various submissions in this group have tested negative for: L513, Z255, DF49,
DF41, L1335, Z251, Z253 and DF21. This leaves only CTS4466 untested for this signature for the larger and older
SNPs under DF13.

So your options are CTS4466 or L627 - both are pretty speculative in nature (10 % or less chance of testing positive).
Both are worthy of testing though. Alternatives would be the more expensive Nat Geo 2.0 ($199) or Cromo2 ($99 ?) tests which
tests thousands of recently discovered YSNPs. Two individual tests are $39 each, so that is a good way towards the Cromo2
test.

Kit N21163 is a fairly close match (61/67) to kit 145001 at 67 markers. 145001 has had the Geno 2.0 and is CTS4466-. Kit 145001 is DF21-, so it's likely that N21163 is DF21-, as well. If so, he can't be L627+ either.

I think he's got to go with Chromo2 or the full y genome thing.

Thanks for the feedback.
I have spoken to numerous FTDNA project administrators, who have stated that I am negative for most SNPs downstream of DF13.
I could be part of an SNP group that hasn't been identified yet, or simply not belong to any SNP downstream of DF13.

I'm starting this up as I've notice a general question has popped up under one of the other threads that was dedicated to L1335.

I think Chromo2 test (raw results) is priced in the same range with Geno2 but it does seem to have more Y SNPs.

I tend to agree with Robert that a general test (like Geno2 or Chromo2) shotgun approach would be better for you than one at a time SNP testing.

I checked and I do have you in the spreadsheet within variety z1014-C, as Robert noticed. Below are the people with a GDs of 4 6 to 10 from you at 67 in the L21 spreadsheet. f145001 MacPhee has led the way.

Mike - David Reynolds summary state that 145001 is also CTS4466 negative, so you should update your spreadsheet.
Sorry for recommending L627 when my second part of the analysis determined close matches were DF21 negative.

This makes the only real decision is either Nat Geo, CROMO2 or Full Genomes (much higher cost) as single YSNP
testing has no viable options.

Thanks. I have to manually enter negative results from David's .pdf's. That is error-prone (on my part) to say the least. This is one of the reasons I'd like to see a common data format and a way to share relevant Y SNP positive and negative results so I can merge them in by automation.

I am MacPhee, 145001, and along with 2 others in my 1014-C cluster (McPhee H1035 and Matthews 224813) have done Geno 2, our results have been uploaded to Dave Reynolds spreadsheet. We found no new snp's below DF13, and we would be delighted if someone would take Cromo2 or Full Genomes and find one for us! :-)

Our cluster has been in limbo from the beginning, we don't fit anywhere, but appear to be an old splinter group of DF13, and so far as I can tell, have been in northern Scotland for many centuries.

I would like to order one...funds are tight at the moment. Hope to rectify things in the near future.

SNP discovery downstream of DF13+ is now known as MC14.
It appears that this could be a defining SNP for people who have been classified as z1014-C in the R-L21 project
This SNP is available for order through YSeq: http://shop.yseq.net/product_info.php?products_id=1501

Have placed my order so see how we go!

I think the MacWho people fit into this as well as that group you cite as z1014-C.

We've got another MacWho Big Y result I can't get the details of. If we had them I'd be sure sure we'd have a subclade for MC14.

I have just received confirmation from YSeq that I am MC14+

N21163, silly question from me. YSEQ sends you a confirmation email of the result of your test?

I ask because I was excited (as I always get waiting for test results!) on Friday. I thought my brother's had been ready. When I look in my account I can see his alleles are in there, but it does not have anything listed under sequencing traces.

I also found it confusing because it looks like four different alleles are listed. I guess it all means the same SNP because they are all the same location. And I guess with all the negative A's and the one negative T it has to do with A and T being base pairs? Oh well I haven't had to think this deeply about any of this since a chapter on genetics in my A&P class. That was more than a few moons ago!

Hi Táltos,

It's not a silly question. It's all new to me too. I didn't get a confirmation email (well haven't yet). I just saw my allele results. I only ordered the MC14 SNP to test and the results showed positive for the A-G letter change (confirming I am MC14+).
There is nothing listed under my sequencing traces yet - but will keep my eyes peeled.

Sorry I can't be of more assistance at this time.

Thank you so much N21163. You were very helpful. Today I also received an email update from YSEQ that the SNP was uploaded. Nothing was listed under sequencing traces still so I guess they don't put anything in that part.
