The following was reported on the announcement. "Today’s big news is that David Mittelman with FamilyTree 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." I've done some follow up checking and FTDNA says the results will integrate into our FTDNA project report systems so we'll be able to share the information and better understand DF27 and build out our deep ancestral family tree to a greater extent. They do consider this a Y SNP discovery test with a lot more coverage than they’ve had before and with very good reliability. If you are interested, please be sure to consider thisquickly as the price goes up significantly on December 1st. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to email me and I’ll try to respond or research them as best as I can. Thanks! Regards, Mike Walsh DF27 Project Administrator - [email protected]
