A nice selection of our project members have ordered Z255 testing. We have some orders by men who are members of the core BBC (have haplotype matches to the Leinster Modal haplotype, have ccgg results on the DYS464X test, and are L159.2). We also have multiple members of Mystery ccgg Group 1 with Z255 tests on order, and this is a good thing because it allows us to test the theory that they are related to members of the core BBC. One of our Mystery ccgg Group 2 members will also be testing. We have two members of our "more 3c1g cousins?" group testing. It will be interesting to see whether either or both of them are also Z255+.
The first Z255 test order that I know of is for a man whose haplotype is not very similar to typical BBC haplotypes, but it does share some similarities with members of the R-L144 subclade that is supposed to be downstream of Z255. His test result it due Wednesday, and I hope we see it and some of the other Z255 test results posted soon.
