New survey reveals 93% want DNA test

A Press Release was sent out today to all the local, Regional and National Irish newspapers, together with a Feature Article, reporting the interim results of the poll that is running on this website (at the end of the column to the right).

A stonking 93% of respondents are interested in doing a DNA test which augurs well for the future of genetic genealogy in Ireland. There was a clear gender bias with 25% of people voting for the Y-DNA test as the most important test for them and only 8% choosing the mitochondrial DNA test. However, two thirds of people favoured the autosomal DNA test, further underscoring the need to provide better tools and utilities for manipulating, analysing and interpreting the data.
