Lockwood DNA Study - How to Participate
In order to make the comparisons it makes sense for all participants worldwide to use the same laboratory and to have the same markers tested. After investigating the market I decided to use the 37 marker test from Family Tree DNA . The samples are sent to Houston, Texas. The Arizona Research Labs located on campus at the University of Arizona conduct the actual tests and store the DNA (for any future tests, if for example, testing for additional markers is requested), whereas FamilyTree DNA also located in Houston control the DNA Database Library and test results.
An idea as to the savings that can be made, when ordering the test via the Lockwood Surname Project, are shown in the table below - correct as of 10th March 2017.

|12 Marker Test||n/a||$59|
|25 Marker Test||n/a||$109|
|37 Marker Test||$169||$149|
|67 Marker Test||$268||$248|
|12 to 25 upgrade||$59||$49|
|12 to 37 upgrade||$109||$99|
