    Hello,

    I would recommend reposting this message in the Mitosearch forum as that is where most people will discuss mtDNA results.

      For everyone who did their FGS: You can add your FGS to GenBank thru your FTDNA page.

      This email from FTDNA was in my email inbox. It's a new way to add FGS to GenBank.

      Dear Customer,

      We approach you as a customer who has obtained your complete mtDNA sequence. mtDNA sequences are compared within populations and across regions of the world to learn more about our history and geographic origins. The more full sequences are available for study, the more this knowledge and understanding will expand. Our customers’ mtDNA sequences represent many twigs in the mtDNA haplogroup tree that have not previously been identified in research. Your sequence is not contributed to science unless you give us permission to do so, but providing your sequence for research is the best action you can take to improve the chances that your own twig of the mtDNA haplogroup tree will be identified and added, and additional geographic origin information eventually discovered.
      Your sequence is therefore of great value for developing the mtDNA tree and expanding the knowledge of each branch’s history and origins. We ask for your permission to use your results anonymously in scientific papers to be published in scientific journals for these purposes. This will eventually allow the refinement and expansion of the mtDNA haplogroup tree and, over time, will enrich our, and your, knowledge. If your sequence is used for scientific purposes, it will be published with the paper as supporting data and entered as required into the NCBI database. The sequence will still be anonymous and we will provide you with the access number it receives in the NCBI database.
      If you would like to participate, please log in to your kit record and click on the new “Personal Surveys” link in the menu on the left. This will take you to a short questionnaire. While only the first question is required, the additional questions are meant to extract the most out of your combined genealogical and genetic information. If you have already entered your results in the NCBI GenBank database, please provide your access number in question 2 so that we can avoid duplications.
      Note: Your complete mtDNA sequence contain genes in the mtDNA’s coding region. It is possible that your results contain medically implicated mutations. However, your results will not be analyzed in advance of NCBI GenBank submission for such mutations. Nor will the scientists involved in scientific papers through Family Tree DNA provide feedback regarding potential medical issues.
      For answers to common questions please go the mtDNA Research FAQ here:
      http://www.familytreedna.com/faq/ans...x?faqid=10#583
      We would like to thank the growing genealogical community for its continuing participation in this important scientific effort.

        I submitted my FGS to GenBank a loooooooong time ago. So when I answered the survey, I gave FTDNA the GenBank accession number. (FJ008043)

          I take this to mean that not all sequences are submitted. Is that right?

            I am confused. I do not see the survey option for submitting when I go to my kit page. And I no longer can find my fasta file to submit.

              I did not receive the e-mail rainbow mentioned, nor do I see a survey. I have previously informed FTDNA of my GenBank ID, so that could could be why -- or maybe they're limited the survey to certain haplogroups, or rolling out the survey a bit at a time, or?

              Your FASTA file is now in the Print Certificate/Report Data section. If you ask Ian Logan to prepare your submission, you can just send him the list of differences.

                I don't know. Maybe.

                  After I did the survey the link disappeared from my page. It was a few lines below the "Family Finder New!" link on the left. I have a separate email account specially for mail from FTDNA. If you or anyone else didn't get the email it may be because it can look like bulk or spam mail and may be blocked as spam. I allow all mail. If I don't recognize the sender I delete it.

                  The email was dated last week (Nov 23 or 24) but I didn't check it until today. Maybe it was sent to me because I have no FGS matches, but it didn't say that was the reason. I checked my matches. My HVR1&HVR2 matches have doubled from about 100 to 200 (203), but I still have no FGS matches.

                    I had a survey link for my mother's account, but not my dad's, so I called the office and the person helping me said my inquiry was the second she had had today, and that she was going to refer my concern to the tech people. After submitting my mother's info, the survey link disappeared once I logged out and back in.

                      Hi all,

                      If you provided a consent in the past, you should not have received an e-mail about the survey. That would have happened if you replied, as requested, with AGREE to the e-mail from FTDNA notifying your about your original FGS results. If you didn't get the e-mail last Wednesday, you will not have the survey link on your personal page.

                      The survey asks for your GenBank accession number; that's to prevent FTDNA from submitting a duplicate entry to GenBank. However, if you didn't get the survey e-mail, there is no place to provide the accession number. You should probably sent an e-mail directly to FTDNA giving them that number. I have tracked all of those from haplogroups K and U8, so we don't have a problem. Other haplogroups might.

                      As I read the e-mail, I don't think they will send all FGS results to GenBank. (They have over 12,000 unpublished results.) They won't send the results of those who haven't consented, or who have already submitted their results directly and provided them with accession numbers. They might not send duplicate results. They might not send results which don't help create new subclades. Two good questions.

                        I have not seen even one new mtDNA match for me in a year, same HVR1, HVR2, and FGS matches as were reported to me when I first got tested. Months ago I asked FTDNA why this was the case and they said something like I have a uncommon DNA signature, but I would think that I would at least have a few new HVR1's from time to time.

                        I did not receive the FTDNA FGS email either.

                          I had thought that everyone who did the FGS would have gotten a survey. Email FTDNA and tell them you want to do the survey.
                          It is a very short survey. About 9 questions. I left one blank because it didn't apply to me (it asked for tribal affiliation).

                            no link

                            I got the email and consented for research a very long time ago, submitted my mtDNA through Ian Logan a couple of years ago, but don't have a link to a survery or to give FTDNA my accession number.... any clues?

                              Just send an e-mail to [email protected] with your kit number and GenBank accession number, mentioning that you had already consented.

                                My problem is I don't remember if I submitted anything to GenBank and I wouldn't remember my accession number if I did.
