Is 23andMe cheaper than WTY? Why not consider the latter? Now I2a1*-F (old
I2a*-F) has a long ancestral branch line for producing snps.
What determined the base pair sites that go into the 23andMe? Will the
criterion for their choosing content influence chances of success?

I think I am going to try to encourage a 23andMe test for someone in
what used to be called I2a*-F, they are P37.2+ but ancestral for all
downstream SNPs like M26, M423, L233 and I believe we have also tested
them for L158, L159, L178. I2a*-F has DYS388=9 and other distinctive
markers, and separated from the rest of I-P37.2 a long time ago. I
think they have a good chance of finding a new SNP result at 23andMe.
There is a sale for the next few days.
