Today’s big news is that David Mittelman with Family Tree DNA late this afternoon announced the Big Y DNA test which would be known as a ‘full Y sequence” test. The test will provide results on 10,000,000 base-pairs and approximately 25,000 SNPs on the Y chromosome.
The regular price is $695, but it is being initially offered to current clients only for $495 though the end of November. A current vial can be used if one exists, otherwise a new one will be sent.
Bennett says, “If the WTY (Walk the Y) was the moon shot, then this is the mission to Mars.”
Debbie Kennett compiled information from several folks who were tweeting and posting today and you can read more information at the link below.
I receive a small contribution when you click on some of the links to vendors in my articles. This does NOT increase the price you pay but helps me to keep the lights on and this informational blog free for everyone. Please click on the links in the articles or to the vendors below if you are purchasing products or DNA testing.
Thank you so much.
