This board is for peer-to-peer discussion of DNA research in general and for posts that don't specify why type of DNA test is being discussed.

There is an option for board administrators to state the purpose of each board in the Board Information, but unfortunately there have been problems editing Board Information for some time.
For years board administrators have been asking for the ability to place a permanent message at the top of each board to state the purpose of the board, but that enhancement has so far not been made.
If anyone has any further questions or comments about the purpose of these boards or the administration of them, please contact me via email rather than replying to this post. In a short while I'll be removing this post from this thread and moving it to the top of this and the other DNA boards in hopes that it will help others.
