    If you first got BigY results this year, the BAM is b38.

    I've still not seen a b38 BAM that was converted from the old, pre-last-fall-orders, b37/hg19 results.


    And they are still refusing to give straight answers about when those will appear. FTDNA has gone to the "big company" model of making sure that customers have to get answers from people who are intentionally can carefully kept ignorant of the real answers. Even Janine Cloud does not know the answer,
    or the "real reason" that "there really is no answer yet, even for the people actually in the know". I suspect that that the last quote marks is correct.

    I don’t have the wherewithal to install the samtools, but I’m assuming my BAM is the Hg38 alignment, given that my BigY results just became available in February and this is the first BAM file that has ever been available to me.

    Mr. W.
    Same here. My BAM file is exactly the same size as the original I received in 2015. Wondering if anyone knows anything regarding the status of such files with regard to hg38?

    hg38 BAM is there

    I got my father's results back this march, so I never could download a BAM file before.

    When clicking the new green button to request the BAM, I got a spinning wait symbol for a minute, then I got the "Your Big Y BAM file is currently being generated." message. About 24h later I was able to download the BAM, now next to the "Download VCF"-button there are also buttons "Download BAM" and "Share BAM".

    The "Download BAM" gave me a .zip file, that was just under 1 Gigabyte big.

    I looked at the header info with samtools and this is the line for the Y-Chromosome Reference Sequence:

    @SQ SN:chrY LN:57227415 AS:ucsc.hg38 M5:b2b7e6369564d89059e763cd6e736837 m5:9bd609da53b41a50a724f2a0131ee9c1

    So this looks good

    Well, since I just ordered the test in December, I don’t have a BAM file of any kind at the moment, old or new.

    Hmmmm. I keep going back to the Big Y results page and when I click on the "Download" button again, it brings up the same popup box, but the "Generate BAM" button is grayed out and the box still says "Your Big Y BAM file is currently being generated." Guess I'll just keep checking back for a few days, unless everyone else and their dog seems to be getting their BAM immediately after clicking the "Generate BAM" button.

    Great! That means now that things are getting back to normal, I am going to have to figure out how to raise money for a Big Y test. No more excuses.
