    Thomas and Astrid Krahn start up new company to test individual SNPs

    This is the Krahns' new DNA testing company. Their pricing is slightly lower than FTDNA's.

    They already offer a test for Y33 (which may mark the Volga-Carpathian cluster within R1a-CTS3402), which FTDNA does not offer.

    Very good news indeed. I hope they get plenty of support (i.e. customers).

    The foreshadowed single STR offering is nice.

    This really looks good.
    YSEQ DNA Origins Project - Philosophy
    The main goal of the YSEQ DNA Origins Project is detailed knowledge about male ancestry. The YSEQ project serves as a platform for citizen scientists. Newly discovered SNPs will be added to the Y-haplogroup tree on ISOGG’s website and the results will be shared with the community of DNA genealogists.
    Is this the flexibility of Sanger sequencing and that is why they can offer +Get other SNPs on same segment for FREE and +Custom designed Primers?
    Any problems with integrating YSEQ DNA SNP and STR data?

    They also already offer a few SNPs from Full Genome Corp. They are in the range FGC5544 -FGC5554 which were presumably just released to the tester in the past few days. This is precisely what we need to compliment the Full Genome sequencing projects. Can we determine who the tester was and which cluster he belongs to so others in the cluster have the opportunity to get their orders in?

    I placed three newish SNPs (available on Geno2 but not as a la carte orders from FTDNA) on a "wish list" with YSEQ about Nov. 23. The tests were available Dec. 11, so I ordered one, and they sent me the sample collection kit the next day. What with slow mail (and my being busy with guests) they received my sample Dec. 23. I got the result today (by email at 3 AM). Seems pretty efficient, to me. It remains to be seen how we are going to report YSEQ results in FTDNA projects, but that's our problem as administrators.

    The kit will return to Texas at the end of january.
    I hope i get the results soon ..

    Received the first results for one of the three SNPs ordered from the YSEQ DNA Origins Project. The turnaround time is amazing.

    Turnaround time (TAT) is one of the most noticeable signs of laboratory service and is often used as a key performance indicator of laboratory performance.
