    First I have received my results from the Geno2 Next Generation and have a question . What specifically will the transfer change? I guess I don't understand the part of family finder,or what the Geno 2 has to do with family finder? If you have a previous Geno 2 transfer will the Next Generation result overwrite the first?

    FTDNA's recent press release about their partnership with National Geographic over Geno 2.0 Next Generation confirms customers will be able to transfer their autosomal DNA to FTDNA for free.

    After the "Geno 2.0 Next Generation" results are available will transfer to FTDNA be possible? I already transferred my earlier "Geno 2.0" results to FTDNA.

    We are including thousands of new Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA mutations, allowing for the highest resolution in maternal and paternal haplogroup (family clan) assignment, shy of genome or chromosomal sequencing.
    ...
    Next Gen participants looking for genealogical matches can now easily transfer results to our laboratory partners at Family Tree DNA and search for relatives across their large database.
    ---

    I interpret this last point to refer to transferability into Family Finder.

    If someone has already taken the FF test what will be the advantages of this new test if any?

    A few more details here:

    The author Miguel Vilar posted on the ISOGG Facebook thread that more information will be coming, "including Y and Mito SNP totals."

    They keep the sample for 4-5 years.
    The thing is when you pay for the kit that is what your paying for. They will upgrade you if you still have a sample that is in good condition. If it's been awhile you will need to buy a new kit.

    I would have had to do so, if I had actually ordered 2.0 for myself. (I did not.)

    If you transfer your Geno results and samples to an FTDNA account, FTDNA will retain them. But Geno will not.

    Yes, I did just the other day. It was really just the same advertisement as on their web site.

    You may instead be thinking of a bizarre situation in which Geno beta-tested its 2.0 product on a few FTDNA customer samples. Geno then released that data to those customers without any charge for the analysis.

    Has anyone received any emails from them about it any way? I thought I saw a couple people somewhere else say they had received some sort of email about the new Next Gen test, but I certainly haven't received any emails at all.

    From what I recall, when they went from Geno 1.0 to 2.0 all those who where participants got a free upgrade to 2.0. But who knows if they will upgrade us without any extra costs this time around. They are being pretty skimpy on the details right now.

    If you have already taken Geno 2.0 do you have to check swab again or can they use a stored sample? Do they tend to offer any discounts at all if you have already tested (and only gotten results a few months ago)?

    It is an entirely new test, not a reanalysis of old results

    "National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Dr. Spencer Wells and team designed Geno 2.0 Next Generation based on the new technologies and insights that emerged since the launch of the Genographic Project ten years ago. Using a custom-built genotyping chip, we test nearly 750,000 DNA markers, many of which have been specifically selected to provide highly detailed ancestry-related information."

    750K what?
    STRs, SNPS
    Breakdown of yDNA, autosomal and mtDNA?

    I can't believe that kits are being sold without providing this information
    before hand.

    http://shop.nationalgeographic.com/n...4RkaAqqm8P8HAQ
    original natgeno2 test had 150K snp's , the new one has 750K snp's.

    they are doing the same as the old/current NAtgeno2 did.

    Natgeno2 currently are the ONLY company that uses the current Ydna and Mtdna trees
