TNG version: 12.0.0

TNG v12 adds the capability to track Y-DNA and mtDNA test results to the DNA Tests capability added in TNG v11

5. DNA: Jeff Robison's and Ken Roy's DNA mod has been incorporated. This provides several significant enhancements to the previous method of tracking DNA tests:

  • adds some additional privacy controls
  • adds the capability to enter Y-DNA test results
  • adds the capability to compare Y-DNA test results
  • adds the capability to enter mtDNA test results
  • adds the capability to enter some information pertaining to atDNA tests

Privacy Controls

  • tests tracking can be done for people who are not in your TNG database
this allows entering tests taken by living people when you do not include living people in your TNG database
  • test takers names can be marked as Keep Private so the test taker name is only viewable to the TNG Administrator
  • administrator notes field was added to tests so you can enter notes that are not displayed to visitors and users
  • information displayed can be controlled for each test tracked
Add DNA Test

Y-DNA Test Results

Y-DNA tests in TNG v12 can now track:

  • values of markers tested
  • Haplogroup can be marked as confirmed
if not marked confirmed it is displayed as predicted
  • most distant ancestor
  • most recent common ancestor (MRCA) between the site owner and a test taker
  • ancestral surnames are automatically filled in based on the TNG database
if the option is set in General Settings > DNA Tests section
if the test taker is in the database

Y-DNA Test Comparison

When selecting Y-DNA tests in a search, you can now select tests to be compared

Select Y-DNA tests

Compare Y-DNA Tests

mtDNA Test Results

mtDNA tests in TNG v12 can now track:

  • values for HVR1, HVR2, and Coding Region differences
  • Reference sequence can be indicated as
    • RSRS (Reconstructed Sapiens Reference Sequence)
    • rCRS (revised Cambridge Reference Sequence)
  • Haplogroup is marked as confirmed
  • most distant ancestor
  • most recent common ancestor (MRCA) between the site owner and a test taker
  • ancestral surnames are automatically filled in based on the TNG database
if the option is set in General Settings > DNA Tests section
if the person taking the test is in the database
Add mtDNA Test Results

atDNA Test Results

Only limited test result information can be entered for atDNA tests

  • most recent common ancestor (MRCA) can be a Family
  • ancestral surnames are NOT automatically filled in because this causes a max execution time exceeded problem on some sites
you can enter the information manually
Add atDNA test

Note that the Most Distant Ancestor field is not provided because on the atDNA test there is not a direct line to a single ancestor, there are multiple line to multiple ancestors.

DNA Groups

DNA Groups can now be created to link tests together for common ancestors
