Family Tree DNA does not have information on the progress or publication date of a study in advance. The scientific team may complete some studies and publish within weeks. However, most studies take months or over a year to complete. After the study is complete and submitted for publication, the researchers may not know the publication date until it is actually published.

If another scientific team publishes a study that goes beyond the scope of the study currently in progress, the scientists will discontinue the current study.

Ethics Alert: Only the actual person tested may contribute their DNA test results to scientific research.
