    The BigY product is limited by how it was constructed. To move forward FTDNA should offer a 20x whole genome product which will provide additional coverage at current read lengths. It is still several years out for the long read options to be viable for what we want to do.

    This site maintains a rather advanced means of tracking SNPs down fairly close to the present day.

    Updated or Add on Big Y Tree

    Just wondering whether FTDNA has any plans to update the current Big Y Tree or to have an add on test for greater fidelity on more recent (younger SNPs for genealogical purposes) SNPs? Interested to hear either way.
