Y-DNA comprehensive sequencing

FGC introduced this service DTC (Direct To Consumer) in spring 2013. Key information (see also Y-DNA SNP testing chart):

  • $999 USD (introduced at $1,499, for early birds $1,299, later lowered to $1,250, $1,099)
  • Sequencing is provided by the BGI in Hong Kong.
  • Raw data (BAM file): Read length 100 base pairs, coverage 50x, approximately 20-25 million bp are called from the ca. 58 million Y-chromosome bp (the centromere and the huge q12 region are not included), ca. 14 million bp with reliable mappings (high quality SNPs)[1][2]
  • SNP Report: approx. 1000 SNPs reported, check for known Y-SNPs, Y-DNA haplogroup assignment, Report of private (new) SNPs, in common haplogroups 25-40 private SNPs are found
  • Y-STR Report: 300+ Y chromosome STRs (Markers)
  • Approx. 99% coverage of the mtDNA sequence

BAM-file analysis

FGC for $50 provides a analysis of third party BAM files and provides the same Interpretation Results (SNP, STR) as mentioned above.

Whole genome test

Introduced in summer 2014.

  • $1,800 USD (introduced at $1,800 for early birds)
  • 30x or better coverage, including the Y chromosome
  • Data will be delivered by hard drive (100 gigabytes or more of raw data)
