Testing Candidates for L908 & L909 SNPs

L908 and L909 has tested positive for one submission: Roberts (1).

Only one good testing candidate was found that exceeded 90 % of the L908 fingerprint:

1) Within the Y-Search query, only one submission that have not been tested that were higher than 70 % of the L908 fingerprint. The following submission would be good testing candidate: Roberts (N86K5). Within the 513 submissions where this submission was found, no other submissions were found that exceeded 70 % of the L980 fingerprint. For the next iteration of analysis, only L513 signatures should be analyzed since L908 and L909 are descendants of L513.

2) Around eleven additional testing candidates were found that exceed 50 % of the L908 fingerprint. See the DNA Results spreadsheet for those submissions that match only 8 of 15 markers of the L908 fingerprint. These testing candidates should be considered very speculative in nature since very few submissions test positive below 60 % of SNP fingerprints.

The DNA results spreadsheet includes one good testing candidates (greater than 70 % of the DNA fingerprint). The higher on the spreadsheet, the more likely of testing positive for this L908 or L909.
