Project news and updates
The DRISCOLL DNA project is seeking co-administrators, for the following specialties: the CADOGAN surname from west Cork; Haplogroup I2 / Isles (I-PF4135); R-CTS4466. If interested, see my project administration page then email the project administrator.
2017 Oct The project has funds to offer one cost-splitting (roughly 50/50) Y111 scholarship next year to an interested man. 2017 Oct Major research analysis update published. See the Driscoll Genes, I-PF4135 and R-CTS4466 pages off of the project data page. 2016 Nov One Driscoll from I-L161 Isles A Subgroup A and one from Subgroup B are getting Big Y tests.
A Y37 scholarship is being offered for the winter 2016/2017 sale.
2016 June The project wants to push forward analysis of the I-L161 Driscolls. We are seeking funding for two Big Y tests representative of Driscolls in our project groups A and B within the I-L161 grouping. One tester will represent Group A (DYS406S1 = 12) and one tester will represent Group B (DYS406S1 = 13). The project administrators are personally pledging $200 towards this effort, plus an additional $90 towards getting YFull analysis done on the results. We will likely need an additional $400.
Big Y results will eventually help guide the project administrators in splitting the project groupings as well as advise I-L161 project members on what further testing would likely be helpful in the future.
- The representative testers will have already tested the full 111 STR markers.
- For project promotional purposes, the testers must be named Driscoll.
- Funds must be in place prior to the next Big Y sale.
2016 May Two native Cork Driscolls with known ancestry have been recruited from the Cork 2016 event.
