  • Upcoming new Big Y features, lower price?

    "The current price of our Big Y test is under $600, and like everything else in technology the price will fall or the offering will become larger," said Bennett Greenspan, president of Family Tree DNA, one of the firms that offers Y chromosome sequencing services. "I think the test will become more mainstream as we begin to offer more features that surround the product later this year," he said. "That, along with a somewhat lower price, will likely make it a much more mainstream product next year."

        Thank you!

        That did work and I was able to read the full article. However, I could not find anything there to report beyond what was quoted in the first post.

          I would be happy with the current features if they actually worked on a consistent basis.

            I might finally break down and order my bigY if they pull this off.
