    This, perhaps. I haven't played with the SNPTips, as I'm traveling with only my iPad, but I plan to when I get home...

Not even advanced identity thieves can utilize that kind of information, can they? Is it likely that future technologies will make it possible to use the data in unforeseen ways?

    It's supposedly anonymous, of course, but somewhere in their system, your data will be linked with your name...

    What are the cons?

    So I understand the pros to submitting your BAM-file to Yfull for analysis. What are possible cons? Just want to make an informed decision.

    Both times I did get a "Thank you for your order" but I'm not sure if it's getting through to Y full. Does anyone know how can verify whether they actually got the message?
    This is the email address that I used to communicate: [email protected].

    Getting This message when I send to Y-full

    Tried to send my BigY results link to Yfull a couple of times using different emails but I keep getting this message

    This is the mail system at host mail.semargl.me.

    I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
    be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.

    Also, how were you notified that they were ready?

    Of course, you can use samtools to chop out only the Y part if you want to share only that.
    YFull's web site says: "MtDNA (rCRS and RSRS) optionally". This sounds like they specifically offer the choice of ignoring your mtDNA data, if you prefer that.

    It absolutely certainly is that good. It's not 100%
    in either of the files I looked at but at most a
    dozen bases were not tested at all. Most had 50+ coverage,
    some huge coverage.

    Hi,

    Please be aware that your BAM file is highly personal genomic data. It is Y-Chromosome, a smidgen of autosomal, and enough mtDNA to make a good guess at your deep clade.

    Mind you, it is not the 200X NextGen mtDNA sequencing we do for our mtDNA product.

    However, it is enough information that someone could make a really good educated guess at the file belonging to you or your brother. Do you remember when 23andMe first launched and we all figured out who their example profiles really were within days?
    I think there's a decent chance that the mtDNA coverage in the BAM file would be detailed enough to include "private" SNPs (i.e. not used to define a subclade)as well as mutations associated with medical conditions.

    What genes (if any) are included in the regions covered by the Big Y? Would infertility problems be evident, for example? We know that that routine Y-DNA testing can reveal a large-scale deletion including genes involved in spermatogenesis, when people get nulls for certain markers such as DYS464.

    But aside from that, I'm not aware of any special concerns. OMIM (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man)lists some phenotypes linked to Y genes. But some of those are very shaky associations, like this one based on a small pedigree:

    People can check the box for chromosome Y in this query screen if they want to explore other records:

    I was looking at STR coverage and it looks like there is
    data there that is not in the bed file. However, I have
    no matching bed and bam files, it just a general
    look. It will take a careful look an many bam files to
    see what the coverage usually is.

    Thanks, I will have a look at it!

    This information really put Big-Y in another dimension, I guess it is not guarenteed the coverage of STRs and mtDNA will be exactly at your rate, but the overall use of the Big-Y results match its price better knowing this, in my opinion.
