Full mtDNA sequence

Has anyone here had their mtDNA fully sequenced? Did you learn anything from it? Did you match anyone who also had their's fully sequenced?

Yes. It confirmed that I am in subclade K1c2 and that I have no medically-significant coding-region mutations. There are not many full-sequence tests published anywhere and most do not have any identifying information. Most people even hide their results from their project administrators. That's the default on your personal page. The only other known K1c2 with published results is identified only as "Moroccan Jew." Since K1c2 is not normally Moroccan nor Jewish, my theory is that some woman from the British Isles ended up in Portugal, where there are K1c's now. She was Jewish or became Jewish, then she or a maternal descendant was expelled around 1492 and went across to Morocco.

I have had my mtDNA fully sequenced. Mine is haplogroup mtJ2. Out of 54 matches, no one else on my personal page was tested for their full mtDNA. I would not recommend this test unless two people are interested in it at the same time. I hope there will be a 3rd HVR test in the future, maybe? I have submitted my results to FTDNA for future research on haplogroup mtJ2. I have a question. What website you research your full mtDNA results for medical reference?

Richard, you not need a "3rd HVR test." If anybody has taken the FTDNA mtDNAPlus (HVR1+HVR2) or mtDNARefine tests, you have tested for the mutations in the "HVR3" tests offered by other companies.

To research your full-sequence results for medical implications is a very complicated process. I paid Ann Turner, the founder of the Genealogy-DNA mailing list, a small fee to analyze mine. Well worth it.

Temporary Price reduction

Hey! In celebration of the opening of a new lab they have reduced the price of the full mtDNA sequence test for the next 100 people. Actually 99 cause I just ordered it. It was like, less than half price! What timing!
