In celebration of DNA Day, which was started back in 2003 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the publication of the Molecular Structure of DNA by Watson and Crick, as well as the announcement that the Human Genome Project was very close to complete, both Family Tree DNA and AncestryDNA have announced sales. So if you have been thinking about undergoing DNA testing, now would be a great time to take the plunge.
See below for more details, but these sales don't go on for long, so note the deadlines and don't procrastinate for too long:
I've been tracking DNA sales at the various companies, so to see how these sale prices compare with others, check out How Much Do DNA Tests Cost? If you live outside the USA, see Notes for UK (and ex-US) Residents.
I've also included some details about GEDmatch, which doesn't need to have a sale, as it's free! In the event you haven't heard about it, I encourage everyone who has tested at FamilyTreeDNA (their Family Finder test), AncestryDNA, and 23andMe to upload their data to GEDmatch, as it has various comparison tools not available elsewhere – and it gives you additional matches to others who used a different DNA testing company from you.
