Hi all,

On Wednesday, February 6, 2013, FTDNA reached another milestone of 22,061 FMS results. This time it took three months to add 1,000 results.

There are now 1,355 FTDNA direct submissions on GenBank, adding 42 results since the last report.

Friday March 8, 2013, FTDNA has 22,346 FGS records in the database. It appears that they had some delays in processing the new orders from the Nov-Dec sale.

Hi all,

On Wednesday, March 20, 2013, FTDNA reached another milestone of exactly 23,000 FMS results. This time it took only six weeks to add 1,000 results.

There are now 1,371 FTDNA direct submissions on GenBank, adding only 16 results since the last report.

So they have 654 new FMS samples in the last 12 days, but in the entire previous month they only added 285 new results. There was a really slow period in February where no new results were being released. Perhaps they were switching over and testing the new equipment in February?

Hi all,

On Thursday, April 11, 2013, FTDNA reached another milestone of 24,068 FMS results. This time it took only THREE weeks to add 1,000 results.

There are 1,371 FTDNA direct submissions on GenBank. No new submissions were added since the last report, although several are pending and will probably be published early next week.

Hi all,

On Monday, May 14, 2013, FTDNA reached another milestone of 25,049 FMS results. This time it took slightly more than a month to add 1,000 results. Results from the DNA Day sale have now started becoming available, often in about three weeks.

On Monday, June 10, 2013, FTDNA reached another milestone of 26,021 FMS results. This time it took less than a month to add 1,000 results.

There are 1,411 FTDNA direct FMS submissions on GenBank. Also, 29 U6 sequences from FTDNA were added in conjunction with a paper by the U6 Project administrator and others. Here is one example: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore/JX120776.1 Of course, there were 4,222 FTDNA results submitted over a year ago with the Behar et al. Copernican/RSRS paper, plus about a thousand more with other papers, including one on Basque mtDNA. So, with a total of 17,851 full sequences on GenBank, about 37% are from FTDNA customers. But only about 26% of the FTDNA sequences are on GenBank so far. There are two ways to get your FMS onto GenBank. One, fill out the Survey on your FTDNA personal page allowing your sequence to be used in a scientific paper. Using that method, your sequence may or may not be used in the near or distant future. Two, use Ian Logan's do-it-yourself direct submission method. The known (to me) record for getting a new FMS onto GenBank using this method is nine days.
