From early 2008 until December 2010, this project operated as a formal research project, with a goal of developing a FMS-based phylogeny for mtDNA haplogroup T. This mission was fulfilled with the publication of a manuscript in the Fall 2010 issue of the Journal of Genetic Genealogy
Now that this journal article has been published, we will be transitioning this project into a more traditional genetic genealogy project, without a formal research mission.
Effective immediately, anybody who belongs to mtDNA haplogroup T or one of its subgroups may join the project without first having to consent to participate in a formal research study.
Sometime in February 2011, we will update the website so that it displays information from the FTDNA system, such as people's kit numbers, the identity of their maternal ancestors, their HVR1 and HVR2 results, their FMS-based subgroup, etc.
