    Big Y 700

    I would love to hear comments about what you all think about the outcome for Big Y-700 will be from Family Tree DNA. Most specifically, what will it tell us, and will it go back and test to find where the split for the break in earlier snps or will it only test for more downstream snps.

    From what I've heard a few people who have their results have received a fair bit of novel variants. This of course could be important for timing estimations of various Y trees, and depending on how many of those novel variants become defining SNPs it could help refine the tree further. Big Y700 will also be looking through more of the Y-chromosome compared to Big Y and Big Y500, so it will definitely have benefits.
