  • BigY - unreliable coverage

    Recent developments have brought the following to my attention:

    I have noticed that the members of my subclade who have been BigY tested have experienced the following:

    1. Older BigY results do not include any BY snps.

    2. The new BY SNPs are creating confusion as project admins cannot find these SNPs in participants who were BigY tested.

    3. The BigY matches utility only includes a match when both individuals share a specific SNP. This is problematic when one individual is positive for an SNP that has not been tested in a second individual. The match is therefore not evident and the individual is non-the-wiser. Missed opportunity!

    Thank-you for your time,

    Kind regards
