    DNA Print Genomics ceased operations...

    Went to Rootsweb dna and genealogy forum and it had the following posting for DNA Print Genomics dated Feb 16, 2009
    "DNA Print Genomics, Inc. has regrettably ceased operations. We thank you for your support. "
    Due to the recession? So no more test for now. Hope everyone who tested with them recieves their results! Feel sorry for those who got layed off...

      I read about it in another thread here in this forum. I still can't believe they closed. I know I griped a lot about my results, 2 1/2...almost 3... years after I tested I still don't know where my 17% is from, but I always thought the company was important and doing good work. I am sad they closed up shop. Where are all their scientists and workers gonna go now?
      I hope the Genographic Project or other dna companies hire them.

        With a 99% genetic makeup of humans being identical, why would anyone expect to be 100% of any particular ethnicity? It seems clear to me that it would be expected that every one is more likely (certain?) to have residual evidence of a 99% commonality in human DNA than not. We may have paper trails for the more recent 1,000 years showing a one country "origin". That, however, is not the human history of the past through all the various migration periods in human history!
        It appears that DecodeMe is equipped to detect the long past common histories reflected in all of our DNA, way past our paper trails and family oral histories. No European nor Native American, for that fact, suddenly appeared without a past common history of origins in his/her veins. That does not appear to me to be credible.

          Contradicting myself...

          Well since the price of 23andme went down I have decided to contradict myself and order it...I should just stop protesting because I know that I am not going to quite testing! I have this need to know myself and my family in detail. Plus I am getting an emotional payoff! It just makes me feel good!

            DNA Print closing...

            Maybe in the future when the economy changes for the better they will come back with some refinements on their tests... Hope everyone received what they payed for...and the people that worked there can find new jobs...

              I'm with you, Maria. I've got the need to know, too, and it DOES feel good! Also, it's all soooo interesting!!
