    This is excellent, exact approach. But, how would such results mirror f.e. recent movements of populations (f.e. data on Sudetenland)?

    does this new project mean that Ldna is the best test out there, especially when everyone else can join in for free?

    LivingDNA is a working progress. LDNA’s laboratory is located in England and it’s really new; they started commercially DNA testing costumers 2 years ago but technically the company was founded in 2004. As a consequence, LDNA only England; and to a lesser extent Scotland and Ireland is broken down into regional components.
    If your Ancestors are not from The British Isles, then you unfortunately won’t get a regional breakdown for a couple more years.

    well, doesnt this new project mean that they will actually add more regions? and its better to take the test now anyway, because later they will add you to a more specific region if they update all of their new systems? and everyone can actually take part of this new project also? - aka: "If you have all four of your grandparents born within 80km of one another".
    i dont know why do they advertise other sites with this project though, because they need to take the extra Ldna test anyway to be pinpointed on the new regions more precicely anyway? so the other companies' customers can basically only match to Ldna testers and not pinpoint the exact region? .....

    Upgraded LivingDNA Chip: SIRIUS

    ... We have upgraded our SNP genotyping platform!

    What is it?

    ... We are excited to announce that we have developed an improved SNP genotyping platform that has been tailored to match the technical requirements of the different statistical methodologies we use to analyse your data. Sirius, the new chip, has been designed using the Axiom technology from Affymetrix / Thermo Scientific, which allows a great flexibility to match every feature of the chip to our methodologies/products. In other words, Sirius will allow us to make a better use of your genetic information and to use our methods more efficiently. New features include a higher overlap between the SNPs we test for our customers and chips used by other ancestry companies and a better SNP density and distribution across the genome as we explain bellow: ....

    Does the new Sirius chip which they use now, check also for other autosomal/haplogrops markers? If it is the case, that would improve the accuracy of the previous results already obtained with Ilumina.

    Let's see if they will respect their promise and update the previous results using the new chip.

    Yea I was wondering that, but I'm not holding my breath. And they take ages living DNA

    I checked my results, and I haven't seen an update to them thus far. But I assume they would have to re-genotype another saliva sample on that chip.

    I know they keep our samples of cheek cells. Probably ready processed to be tested.

    So I got access to family networks and it is quite underwhelming. My only matches are my parents, which doesn't make logical sense. Should be some more matches in their database. Additionally, most of the features are still inaccessible and my parents profiles still do not have the option to upgrade at a small fee for ancestry results(like they claimed). LivingDNA seems to be full of empty promises.

    I asked them the question, but their answer has nothing to do with the question ...! Blah, blah ...
    And yes... LivingDNA seems to be full of empty promises.
    They are totally unreliable and I will give up all contact with them from now on.

    Living dna seems to be classically British in their behavior. I don't know what happened to the UK, maybe the post empire attitude has affected all of them because when I lived in the UK I never met more spacey and lazy people (sorry good British people) I think their country has become entirely apathetic and just doesn't care anymore about stuff.

    Again it should go without saying, LivingDNA is dogshit and really needs to step up their game.

    Very negative comments on Living DNA. But then, in this webpage the comparison gives Living DNA as the winner. I do not understand.

    The test itself isn't bad just the company itself they way they interpret the results and how slow they are to do any of the things they say they will

    They are very slow....had my data for a year and it finally went into "Downloaded DNA "...........I guess I have to wait a bit more until I see "complete"
    Only comment I ever got was that I sit deep into the Alps area somewhere

People who have already done a DNA test with another company can upload their results and take part for free.

    It's a long time since all the links to the project, aspirations and promises, go to nowhere!

    seems like the project is still going on under here? - https://livingdna.com/research
    so Ldna is still the best option out there?

    I am wondering what is happening with the One World Project too. When I contacted LDNA a few months ago, they said that the project pages were down because they were redesigning the site, but nothing has changed since and I have no news from them.

    All I know is that they got a new chip in October with considerably more SNPs for Y-DNA deep clades.
