Its interesting to see that you've ordered the Chromo2. I look forward to seeing the results and how they are interpreted as many are concerned that the 'S' series of SNPs cannot easily be compared to already known SNPs: Does it appear that we'll need to rely on D Reynolds for that interpretation as with Geno2?
Have you discarded the 'leap-frog' effect of testing companies whereby Geno2 would leap over Chromo2 with even more SNPs? Perhaps you could elaborate on your Chromo2 decision for the benefit of us all. Thanks.
It looks like you transposed some of your kit #'s. Should it not be N54638?
P.S. It looks like you missed the two 'Hall' haplotypes I requested added to the SS per 16Sept post: Could you make note of that and add them to next SS please. Thanks.
Also, do you know where to find the L193 MDKA distribution map?

We already have a number of results from Geno 2, which helped us find CTS3087.
We have one L513+ Full Genomes test on order that I know of
We now have at least one Chromo2 test on order::
Anybody I'm missing? This will require some good coordination amongst us as we get into comparing results from multiple companies. We need to consolidate them like I do with Haplotypes (STRs). David Reynolds does this for SNPs but I think this will get a lot more complicated quickly. That's actually a good thing as that means we are discovering more and more about our Y DNA family tree.
Full Genomes is much more expensive, over $1200, I think. Geno2 is around $199 and Chromo2 has a raw results option in the same price range.
Below are some comments on Chomo2 that have come to light over the past month.
