DNA questions answered

I recently flagged up a report in the Sunday Times about a company called Britain's DNA (www.britainsdna.com) and a BBC Radio 4 interview in July with one of its spokesmen which included several claims that were subsequently challenged by others in the industry. My original blog post, entitled DNA Questions Asked, is at http://britishgenes.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/dna-questions-asked.html.

The chief scientist of the company, Jim Wilson, has now responded to the comments via a guest post on the Genomes Unzipped blog at www.genomesunzipped.org/2013/01/response-to-exaggerations-and-errors-in-the-promotion-of-genetic-ancestry-testing.php.
