It works, I already got my BAM file.

Great! That means now that things are getting back to normal, I am going to have to figure out how to raise money for a Big Y test. No more excuses.

How long did it take after you clicked the button and got the “Your BAM file is being generated” message?

Hmmmm. I keep going back to the Big Y results page and when I click on the "Download" button again, it brings up the same popup box, but the "Generate BAM" button is grayed out and the box still says "Your Big Y BAM file is currently being generated." Guess I'll just keep checking back for a few days, unless everyone else and their dog seems to be getting their BAM immediately after clicking the "Generate BAM" button.

Old b37 BAM files are still not being converted. You just get the old one, with no chance to generate a new one.

Well, since I just ordered the test in December, I don’t have a BAM file of any kind at the moment, old or new.

OK, so now there is a BAM file I can download or share. I don’t know if it is hg19 or hg38, but at least I have a BAM file.

I can download a BAM, but it is identical to the one I downloaded three (3) years ago...

Smile hg38 BAM is there

I got my father's results back this march, so I never could download a BAM file before.

When clicking the new green button to request the BAM, I got a spinning wait symbol for a minute, then I got the "Your Big Y BAM file is currently being generated." message. About 24h later I was able to download the BAM, now next to the "Download VCF"-button there are also buttons "Download BAM" and "Share BAM".

The "Download BAM" gave me a .zip file, that was just under 1 Gigabyte big.

I looked at the header info with samtools and this is the line for the Y-Chromosome Reference Sequence:

@SQ SN:chrY LN:57227415 AS:ucsc.hg38 M5:b2b7e6369564d89059e763cd6e736837 m5:9bd609da53b41a50a724f2a0131ee9c1

So this looks good
