My Big Y results have not been updated yet so I can't much of this. There are a number of enhancements in Big Y. The new Big Y results will all be using the updated reference model Hg38. Think of it as a map that the Big Y most raw results are compared with to to look for changes (variants or SNPs).

It's more complicated but I don't know if everyone wants all the details or cares. All prior Big Y results are supposed to be converted to the Hg38 format. This is important so comparisons can be apples to apples. This the essence of discovering the tree branching in genetic genealogy.

There new and improved on-line tools that make analysis easier for more people. There is Big Y Chromosome Browser and an Terminal SNP Guide has been added to the Big Y Matching. This is important as the old way was very limited.

If interested, please become familiar with the Big Y Learning Center.
