  • Question re Y25

    I have upgraded to a Y25. As I had a backbone test done to confirm my hapolgroup does this mean they will have already done more markers than a Y12 and if so should the results be available without further testing??

    No. The free backbone test tests for SNP's. The tests you have paid for test STR markers.

    It would be worthwhile to do some background reading on SNP testing vs. STR testing.

    Up until recently the introductory advice you would get is that STR testing was better for recent ancestry and SNP's for ancient ancestry but advances in the science mean that advice is not that straight forward anymore.

    Earl.
