  • Big Y Question - No known SNP differences

    My husband has a match with 0 Known SNP Differences, 0 Shared Novel Variants.

    Does this mean it is a closer match?

    Thanks,
    Lynnette

    That report doesn't accurately provide the novel variants. You need to have an expert analyze your husband's BAM file to know about how novel variants he has. YFull does a very good job of it but so do some haplogroup admins. What is his subclade?

      From the family data I have seen MORE novel variants
      means a closer match.
      There may be a few errors in the SNPs as tested so
      using just know SNPs is to be avoided.
      I have tested my self and my brother.
      We have 2 differences on KNOWN SNPs and
      35 Shared Novel Variants

      I like to rank the closest using the most novel variants
      first and mostly ignore know SNPs unless it is a large
      number say 3 or more

      In another family where we have known 5 cousins tested
      the two have 119 Shared Novel Variants and One Known SNP
      difference
