Re this thread, I found this posted to the blog of Roberta Estes. Of course, we cannot believe everything we read, so this may, or may not, be correct information.

"the investigators were able to run it on a “microarray”"
Hmm, if forensic labs added DNA microarrays to their standard equipment (in addition to whatever they have for CODIS), there may be interesting times ahead.

IF the information in the buzzfeed link is correct, perhaps this is a reason for Gedmatch suspending uploads from FtDNA a couple of years ago.

Back then the Gedmatch kit number for a kit from FamilyTreeDNA was the FtDNA kit number with a letter in front (F I think it was).

Uploads from FamilyTreeDNA resumed once the numbering system was changed to a randomly generated number with T in front.

Yes, and some of the kits from FTDNA were prefixed with N, those of us who originated with National Geographic.

A while back there was something, I think on PBS, about the difficulty researchers have in getting African Americans to participate in DNA health research. There's a strong belief, justified or not, that the samples will be used by police to pin some crime on them or their relatives.

This may be unwarranted but when you live your entire life concerned about things like being pulled over for DWB, it's hardly unreasonable.

GEDmatch is in the process of converting all members in their old system to their new system. One day I went from over 1,000 matches to less than 10. A few days later they were all back.

It may be the "The sky is falling, the sky is falling" syndrome or maybe they know there is a criminal in their line.

This is an illuminating read re the legal process in some states, including California, published by the US Dept of Justice, and retrieved from the blog of Roberta Estes.

When justice is served, it is a good day for all victims.

I didn't read the entire thread so I'm sorry if this has been addressed already. First of all, I guessed it was Gedmatch before it was confirmed. However, does Gedmatch only allow transfers of legitimate tests or can you re-create a DNA match? The story I read said police created a profile based on the DNA they found at the crime scenes.

Technically, any lab that uses an appropriate "chip" should be able to generate SNP data that can be formatted in a way that GEDmatch can read.
