    Changes to 23andme..

    There are some changes coming, here are the things they will remove:

    Not available on the new 23andMe

    DNA Melody

    Global Similarity Map

    Haplogroup Tree Mutation Mapper

    Family Inheritance Genome View

    Inheritance Calculator

    ABO Blood Lab

    Reynold's Risk
    and things that will be new:

    Hopefully the chromosome feature will include DNA relatives, as that is a major problem with the current DNA relatives. I also hope they update AC with less statistical issues and better clusters.

    If you received results prior to December 2013, it's likely that you are on an earlier version of our chip. We are still determining what reports customers genotyped on these platforms will be able to receive and whether an upgrade to a new platform will be required.

    Please note that current US customers will not have to pay additional fees for the new Personal Genome Service reports.

    Don't like this, considering I'm on master race V3 chip. Hopefully It will be limited to some health related things that I can live without.

    So they increased the cost of the price immediately, but the new features won't roll out until later. lol Interesting.

    I will be downloading everything while I still can. I'm actually lamenting the fact that CoA will go away, since I highly doubt the new integration of the feature within Relative Finder will be as useful. Less complicated for new users, perhaps, but likely less useful, and probably more of a shallow experience.



    Also, FYI, I saw this on the 23andme community page:

    Will Ancestry Composition be racalculated and are there new populations? Or did just the design change?

    @[username withheld], a population update for Ancestry Composition is not part of this launch.

    For those interested primarily in the genetic genealogy, $199 is a steep price to pay, especially when there are good alternatives out there for $99.

    On the plus side -- I bought 5 kits a few weeks ago -- and they are $199 now. Boy did I luck out.

    FTDNA. I have had much greater success with matches there. Combine it with Gedmatch, and you have plenty of tools to assist.

    Horses for courses, FTDNA is not good for all, and has a habit of overestimating or assigning AJ in non AJ's from the Med area...as one example.
    As for combining with Gedmatch, anyone can do that, but most people's matches do not and it is a hassle to get people over there unless they want to be. Same issue at Ancestry, combined with the subscription fees.
