  • Big Y results Named Variants tab “On Y-tree” column

    The information for this column includes the sentence:

    Named SNPs that are not placed on the haplotree may not be phylogenetically relevant.

    Can anyone explain the phrase “phylogenetically relevant”? The original basis for this question is that the match I share my terminal SNP differs from me by 3 named variants (in addition to some private). The post was going to be “how can I share a terminal SNP if we don’t share some named variants”, but perhaps the “phylogenetically relevant” phrase explains it.

    I believe it means that there are some mutations which are very common and possibly not stable, so they cannot be used in the haplotree. I have one non-matching named variant with my father and one real private variant.
