Hello, I got my BigY results and donated my files to the respective admins of the R1b Basal Subclades group so they can improve/advance the phylogenetic tree of R1b. I belong to the early clade R1b>L389>V1636 (M269-). Currently I have no matches (also no Str matches actually). I wanted to ask what advantages I would have from making YFull and if it is worth it.
Thank you

Thanks Gnid for your testing and question. One reason to submit your BAM file to YFull is they include research samples in their haplotree. In your case a 1000 Genomes Project sample is R1b-V1636. There are only a handful of R1b-V1636 NGS tested samples. The next samples that help define your branch may not come from FTDNA. Having your sample on the YFull haplotree makes it possible for those outside the FTDNA universe to see your branch on the haplotree. It's nice when seldom scene samples like yours are visible on more than our project tree and the FTDNA haplotree. For $49 you'll get a professional analysis, TMRCA estimates, hundreds of STRs and a lot of tools to work with. And you won't have to wait a year or two for these features.
This blog by Linda Jonas has a good overview of YFull tools and the conversion to the hg38 build. http:// ultimatefamilyhistorians. blogspot.com/2017/10/big- changes-to-yfull.html?m=1

Thank you for your answer. I will very likely do it sooner or later.
