On Monday, August 5, 2013, FTDNA reached another milestone of 28,009 FMS results. Again, it took slightly less than a month to add 1,000 results.

Ian says there are 2080 new sequences in GenBank - perhaps these are associated with an update to Phylotree?

Hi Gail,

I don't think so. Besides the FTDNA ones, there are a few from Cambodia; but the rest are from one paper on diabetes in Denmark. Prepare for a lot of U5 ones!

Yikes! Luckily, I've been furloughed due to the government shutdown. I should be using the time to work on my cabin, but the roads were washed out by the floods in Colorado. And now it is snowing, so I have lots of time to sort U5 samples! Until now I've been copying new sequence results after Ian posts them on the DNA list. Do you know if there is a better way to download the new samples, using rCRS?

thanks,
Gail

Gail, one way is to BLAST each one of the sequences to see if the matches are in U5. That doesn't always work. Then set the display setting to FASTA text, then copy to notepad, then save, then call up in Jim Lick's mthap. Repeat 1,900+ times. In other words, I'll wait for Ian Logan!

If anybody knows a better way of doing this, I'm game to try it.
