  • Curious - who can request a BAM file Big Y

    I am curious.

    Who exactly can request a FTDNA BAM file from the Big Y.

    I figure self & group administrators.

    However, can ANYONE request the BAM file if they but have the kit #.

    Only the person whose Big Y results are in the BAM file can request and get access to the BAM file. Administrators have access to project members' results, but a BAM file is one of the few exceptions. Although an administrator can use their administrator logon to access results in members' accounts, only when someone (the account holder) uses their personal account password to log into their account can the BAM file be requested and then downloaded.

    Since FTDNA knows that many people who have taken Big Y want haplogroup administrators and BAM file analysis companies (FGC and YFull) to have access to their BAM file, anyone who requests their BAM file is given the option to download it to their computer or send a link to the download site of their BAM file to whoever will be analyzing their file.

      If the kit owner gave their kit password to the project administrator, so administrator would be able to manage the kit in addition - additional action to being just a project member, then the project administrator can order the BAM file.

      But only if the password was shared, which is not required if one only wants to participate in a project.
