  • Transfer or order Comprehensive Genome

    What are the pros when ordering the FTDNA Comprehensive Genome package instead of doing the Geno 2.0 Next Generation transfer.

  • #2
    FTDNA until very recently was the testing lab for the Genographic Project. I believe that if you do the Geno 2.0 Next Generation transfer, FTDNA will have immediate access to your DNA sample. If you instead don't do the transfer and order the FTDNA Comprehensive Genome package directly, they'll have to send you a test kit and you'll have to send back your DNA sample. There's also a small shipping charge associated with the test kit.

    Once you do the transfer from Geno 2.0 into an FTDNA account, you can immediately order the Comprehensive Genome package to be done on your sample. That will probably save a few weeks of shipping a test kit to you and sending your DNA sample to FTDNA. So, you'll get your results quicker.

    That's the only advantage I can think of. Others may have other information which indicates there are advantages to just ordering the Comprehensive Genome package directly.
