AncestryDNA Video On YouTube

A new Ancestry.com video titled "Introducing AncestryDNA" about their new autosomal DNA test is on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=SgSpSmdjr7s)

The video can be played below:




I've posted about my testing experience and results in Results from Ancestry.com Autosomal DNA Tests - Post 1 and Results from Ancestry.com Autosomal DNA Test - Post 2.


There are still no information about when this will be offered to the general public nor what the cost of the autosomal test will be.


I checked my results again today and found few additions, and no closer cousin relationships than before.  


Hat tip to Tamura Jones who posted the video on his Google+ Stream.

The video description links to AncestryDNA.com where we learn that tests will cost just $99 for Ancestry.com subscribers. Sounds like 1/3 the cost of my other autosomal DNA test. It also says I will get a message to invite me to take the test eventually when it is my turn... they have high demand they say.

Michael, 1/3 of the cost for less than 1/3 of the information. AncestryDNA is not providing any of the underlying genetic data, including the specific matching segments and the raw data. I'm sure they will have high demand, but many will be disappointed in what they get.
