Evening all,

( I was originally on here as Wulf Talented but left for a while, forgot my password and I'm not receiving the email to change it at my Email address? )

Anyhow,
I'm creating a portfolio of my DNA and ancestry. I have already tested with 23andMe, FTDNA and Nat Geno, as well as put my genome results through the likes of Gedmatch tools etc.

I'm wanting to test with another company, I sound addicted ( well I am ). DNAtribes seems to have bad press but BritainsDNA looks promising, what are your opinions/thoughts on them, has anyone tested with them and been pleased with their results?

I'm looking to order the chromo2 >268k, as it's reduced in price.

Many thanks,
Wulf

Anyone, an opinion on them at least?

I did the Chromo2 Complete and am very pleased with the results. I did not really learn anything new on the y-dna side, but it was nice to have my FTDNA SNP test results confirmed by a second, independent source. Chromo2's mtDNA testing was more extensive than what I had had before, so I did learn a lot on the distaff side, although that is not my main interest (in fact, I really don't bother with the mtDNA side of things much at all).

Chromo2 Complete includes autosomal testing, which was interesting. I also got the Red Head Test from BDNA, and found out I am a carrier of the red hair variant Arg160Tryp.

I would save for a Full Y test (either FGC or Big Y). Both the Nat Geo and BritainDNA have at most 10 % chance of discovering a new terminal YSNP. However, Big Y will discover 10 to 20 and FGC probably 20 to 30 new YSNPs of interest to research. $500 and $1,000 (sales prices) are much steeper but will contribute much more. It would also help to know what you have already tested positive for. BritainDNA does very well on specific parts of the haplotree (like under L21). Look for "S" YSNPs under your terminal YSNP for BritainDNA unique YSNPs.

Morning,

Thanks for replying.
did you at all receive a printable pack of your results? I'm not sure what new stuff Chromo2 could tell me, but I'd still like to take it. MtDNA I'm a little sceptical, due to the lack of research on it, but because I'm collecting and gathering research, the Chromo 2 sounds a real good test with the prinatable information.

I'm glad you was pleased with it!

I will be buying the Big Y aswell! Can't miss out on that, I'm just gutted I hesitated to buy it at the discounted price, but I was still receiving my 67 marker Y Test results. How deep does the Big Y go, how far back?

Thanks!

Wulf,

I did the Chromo2 test and was impressed with the printed package.
The advantages are their coverage of the Isles, Cultural and Historical interpretation.
Their disadvantages are different naming conventions and lack of matching capability.
However I agree with Charles that you have a better chance of SNP discovery with Big Y or FGC.
Here are sample results.

I agree that Big Y and FGC are more comprehensive than Chromo2, but I was still pleased with the results. I'm pretty sure BDNA will be coming out soon with its own big-gun y-dna test to rival the Big Y.

While I am a huge fan of FTDNA and of Bennett Greenspan, I think it is important and valuable, if one can swing it, to get independent confirmation of one's test results. I feel better knowing that a second, independent testing company has confirmed the SNP, mtDNA, and autosomal (including the red hair variant) test results I got from FTDNA.

I guess it wouldn't hurt to mention that I ordered a Geno 2.0 for my dad and the Chromo2 Complete for myself before FTDNA came out with the Big Y. Thus I have not been able to purchase a Big Y test yet, and the FGC is just out of the question.

On the subject of having independent confirmation of one's test results, I have seen reports over the years of a number of pretty spectacular FTDNA lab errors. They are, thankfully, relatively rare, but they do occur. People occasionally get bogus results assigning them to the wrong y haplogroup, and I have even seen instances of lab mix-ups, in which one gets assigned someone else's results and vice versa. That has never happened to me - thank God! - but it does happen. It's good to get an independent second opinion, if you can afford it.

After I have paid my braces of this month, I'll see what money I have left. I have the Chromo2 in the checkout bag ready to order, I just need to pay of my braces and then I'll go ahead if I can afford it. If not, then It'll definitely be next pay day which is only two weeks away.

FTDNA have so far, for me been accurate. Well, partially... It correlates well with my 23andMe results if you accept the population reference descriptions.

Thanks chaps :)

My wife and I both tested with Chromo2 and were very pleased with the results. We ordered at the "Who Do You Think You Are LIVE" show back in Feb this year. As usual, I haggled on the price (LOL) as were were both buying and so we got the printed packs for free. The results came in almost 8 weeks to the day. I actually took the test kits into the Lab in person as I work in Nottingham where the lab is located. We found the staff friendly and helpful.

Cheers, Ade.

I'd love a hard copy for my ancestry folder, I already have FTDNA, 23andMe and Nat Geno 2.0 alongside my Gedmatch calculator admixture results. It's just one big DNA folder!

I still wonder what picture they depict for R1a S443 and W1g, we'll find out!

BritainsDNA has added a new Test to the mix: "Blue" Eyes (in reality is a eye colour test, as it gives wich percentual chance you have of brown/green/blue eyes). It gives the statistics of U.K. and Ireland also, some genetic and optic backgrounds about the formation of colours in the eye, some charts and maps, for the pricey 49 pounds.... but are included in the "Chrome 2 complete" for the same price as usual. So is a Y-DNA with 15,000 SNP markers, mDNA with 3,000 markers and 250,000 aDNA markers plus "red hair" test and "blue eye" test.
They are adding so, I guess, as part of those things they are already adding to their next Chrome 3 tests (and so, making some databases ready for the new features)

Results starting to flow in... Red head first,

You are a

Red-head
You have two red-head variants
Val92Met
Arg163Gln
in your MC1R gene

You have inherited two different red-head variants - one from each parent - leading to an at least partial disruption of both copies of your MC1R gene and so you could have red hair.

You should have red or strawberry blond hair and will pass one copy of one of these variants on to each of your children. However, some people with your combination of varients don’t have red hair.
Your MC1R Gene

My Grandmother ( mother's side ) had red hair, so it's no surprise.
I was bleach blond myself when younger, and now mouse brown.

Interesting! Your red hair variants differ from mine. I have only one copy, so I have dark brown hair (well along in going gray), but the red hair variant I carry is Arg160Tryp.

Glad to hear your results are finally coming in!

Subtype
Your subtype is R1a-S223
Your S223 subtype was discovered in Orkney. You do not carry the almost Orkney-specific S201 sub-subtype though.You may carry markers that further define your subtype, but do not yet appear on our tree. You will find these in your genetic signature.

Nice graphic!

I find it very interesting though, as I, my father and grandfather were all born in Kent. SE England.

Perhaps going back a few generations he came from further up north originally, since the south was settled mostly by the Saxons and Jutes, If my Y-DNA was to originate from Norway this wouldn't make sense. Or even yet, perhaps it was a Norman originally of Norse origin.

Your YDNA Haplogroup is R1a-S443

Haplogroup story.

R1a-S443 - Norse Viking

Your YDNA marker is NORSE VIKING, and it sailed first to Scotland in the dreki, the dragon-ships, steered by daring, ferocious and skilled sea-lords in the 9th and 10th centuries. The shock of their first attacks reverberates down the centuries and the terrified chroniclers in the monasteries they pillaged and burned called them the Sons of Death.

Your Y chromosome group, which tracks your paternal lineage, is R1a and it is common in a wide geographical band stretching from India through Central Asia and on to Scandinavia.

Within that group you carry a more specific marker, S443, and it is found in Norway, Sweden and Denmark and is also common in Iceland, the Faeroes, Shetland and Orkney (where it was first discovered). Best read alongside each other, your DNA results and recorded history tell a story of high drama, bloodshed and adventure – the story of the Viking raids of the 9th and 10th centuries and their colonisation of the islands off the northwestern edges of Europe.

MtDNA W1 - 'Mohenjo-daro'
https://www.britainsdna.com/Mydna/img/result/chromo2/haplogroup/logo/mohenjo-daro.png?1402489474


Your mitochondrial DNA group is that of the women of MOHENJO-DARO, one of the very earliest urban cultures. A series of prehistoric cities were built between c3,000BC and 2,500BC in the valley of the Indus River in what is modern Pakistan. Mohenjo-daro was large with around 35,000 inhabitants and your genetic cousins were amongst the first women to be city-dwellers, to have near-neighbours, to live in bustling streets of terraced houses, to raise and care for their families in the traffic and constant presence of many others, some of them strangers.

Your mtDNA markers, which only women can pass on to their children, define haplogroup W. This widespread West Eurasian group is rare over much of its range but it is very common in some populations in Pakistan. In Europe it is found most frequently in Finland and as far east as the Uighur People of Western China.

Hi. Had a test for my brother both X & Y, redhead and All my Ancestry. Im253 for paternal and K1a4a1 for maternal. Happy to share data and join discussions. I have realised that Wales DNA don't use same tests as other commercial tests so comparisons are difficult. Does anyone have Native American on their autosomal results? Regards

Is I-M253 an active group ? that group occurs 5 steps back in my fatherline dna tree. Its difficult to tell which groups are current and which are purely historic.

Britiains DNA have released their Great Tree of Mankind.
It is pretty impressive especially the P312 branch in Areas 4,5 and 6 on the chart.

I recieved my fatherline and motherline results , my y-dna is R1A1-M448 and my mtdna is L2AC1 it confirms my result with FTDNA but the surprise is that I have 03% Native american in all my ancestry but I think it is a noise.

Between receiving and sending your kit, did it take you long to get your results? What were the rest of your autosomal results aside from the Native American?

it take around 8 weeks, my autosomal results is mixing between sub saharan, west eurasian and european

Does anybody know how to read these? When enlarged, they are a blur.

where can you download the "Great Tree"? I can only find the press release. Thats funny enough ;) but I'd like to see the tree

I'm in Wales too and I've got some Native American ( but it isn't). I'm no expert but I've read a couple of views. One is that it could represent a Hun influence on "Germanic" Dna. Others suggest a small percentage is just "noise" and doesn't signify anything.

Have got 2% Native American but according to them anything under 3% is likely just noise. I'd contact them though, as they are apparently able to tell 'significant' pieces of DNA from others, don't know how.

If you've already done the Geno 2.0 test you're not going to get much more out of the BritainsDNA test as the Y-SNP part is very similar to Geno 2.0. Both tests only report on known Y-SNPs. Your best option would be to pay a little more for a Y-chromosome sequencing test. These are SNP discovery tests that are helping to refine the Y-SNP tree and will give you your precise placement on the tree. There are currently two options: the Y Elite from Full Genomes Corporation and the Big Y from Family Tree DNA. See the ISOGG SNP testing comparison chart:

http://www.isogg.org/wiki/Y-DNA_SNP_testing_chart

It would also be a good idea to seek advice from the admins of the haplogroup R1a project:

I wouldn't call the Y portion of Chromo2 'very similar to Geno 2.0' at all. There was significant SNP discovery between the two, including some in-house research by Dr. James Wilson. And not just M222 either. I am sure we've been over all this many times before.

The comparison chart has no column for YSEQ which launched at the end of 2013 (!).

Also for completeness some mention should be made of the Y SNPs on the AncestryDNA chip even if they don't merit a column. They are reported by Promethease or can be viewed in the raw data file.

The original enquiry, which I can't seem to find any more, was for an R1a man. Geno 2.0 and Chromo 2 are both chip tests so they are very similar. Chromo 2 is more focused on SNPs of interest to people from the UK and Ireland. A Chromo 2 test is not going to be of good value for anyone who's already done the Geno 2.0 test.

I should have mentioned that there are also the new SNP packs from FTDNA. I don't know offhand which ones are available at present. I note too that YSEQ have a new R1a SNP panel test that's just come out:

The ISOGG Wiki can be edited by all ISOGG members. Perhaps you might like to update the appropriate pages. Chris R was planning to re-organise the SNP testing chart and add YSEQ but he hasn't yet got round to it so you might like to check with him first or add a note on the talk page. I'm not sure quite what he had in mind.
