DNA questions asked

Some questions have been asked by the Sunday Times concerning recent claims apparently made about the work of Britain's DNA (www.britainsdna.com) on the BBC Radio 4's Today programme in July. Most of the article is located behind a paywall at www.thesundaytimes.co.uk/sto/news/uk_news/Tech/article1182305.ece, but another consideration of the points raised in the piece, by Vincent Plagnol (a statistical geneticist at University College London), is available at www.genomesunzipped.org/2012/12/exaggerations-and-errors-in-the-promotion-of-genetic-ancestry-testing.php.
