Hi everyone. If you upload a VCF file to YFull, do you still receive an age estimation, or does that require a BAM file?

You get an age estimation, but I would recommend to submit the BAM file now or later to receive the STR analysis.

I'm planning on doing it in the near future! I'm waiting since it's $99 to download it from FamilyTreeDNA, and I just paid $49 to upload the VCF file in the first place.

If you do decide to submit your Bam file later on, YFull will do the analysis for free.

Hello, I did the same with VCF file. There is also possible to upload STR list file to Yfull.
They say they need bam file to show STR comparison, will wait if STR cvs upload changes anything.
