Intermediate and Advanced Y-DNA Topics

Presenter: Brad Larkin, MBA, MCSE


Going from dozens of STR markers to millions of SNP results in the Big Y (and similar) DNA tests is a huge jump in complexity. Session will address advanced topics such as: (1) how the terminal SNP and phylogenetic tree are determined; (2) BAM file use in comparing novel variants between matching individuals; (3) incorporating sampling context into genealogical and geographic interpretations.
