bug fix

Unfortunately we introduced a undetected bug within our last software update (December 7th). Under some circumstances the requested Metapopulation and National Database was mistakenly assumed to be empty when there was no match found. This behavior is unintended and was corrected by now. (Thanks Tom and Peter)

Release 50

Six years were needed to upload the first and another six years for the second 50k haplotypes. For the third 50k tranche only 3 years went by. On July 18, 2015 we launched jubilee release 50 of the YHRD with 11,285 new STR profiles. The database is now comprised of 154,329 haplotypes. Altogether 991 populations in 129 countries are represented. The new Data File Validator and self-submission software helped us a lot to cope with the amount of new data.
