  • Reporting of duplicate-allele markers? - DYS385, DYS459 & YCAII

    The Sorenson web page at http://smgf.org/about_the_ycs_database.jsp states that DYS385, DYS459 and YCAII are duplicate-allele markers and that reporting them twice is, in effect, 'double counting'. I have received a report from FTDNA for my first 25 Y STR markers and allele values are reported for DYS385, DYS459a and DYS459b and all 3 are different. How does this reconcile with the Sorenson statement that these are duplicate markers?
