  • Two diffrent test values for a few testpoints in one single X-chromosome

    I have downloaded the raw data for my chromosomes. I am male with one X chromosome from my mother. I have noted that for a few testpoints there are two diffrent values.
    Are these uncertaincy in the test process or are they mutaitions?

    These are misreads/uncertaincy, as Males only have one X. (which FTDNA lists males values for X as a Homozgous pair by default)
    Testing allows for a set percentage of errors.

    Note, this does not effect matching as matching is based on half identical matching (only one value has to match)
    Majority of SNPs are 1 of 2 values, thus the majority of heterozygous will always match to another person. ie) AG will match the combinations of GG, AA, and AG
    It is the homozygous alleles that cause breaks in matching ie)AA, will match AA and AG, but not GG

    So if you are listed as AG for a position on X, you will either be A (AA) of G (GG)
