Using BAM Analysis Kit from www.y-str.org against my Full Y Bam file, there is a output file to show how long your telomere is. I read where some of the BigY's BAM files do not contain this data.

http://www.y-str.org/2014/04/bigy-telomere.html

Telomere Length: 5.45682

Ann Turner suggested "If people post their results along with their age, it might be interesting to see if there's an inverse correlation. There's a lot of scatter in Figure 2 of the paper you cited"

My Age: 58

I used this:

http://www.y-str.org/2014/04/bam-analysis-kit.html

With my FGC (Y Prime) bam file (total size 8-9GB ) and it said my telomere length was 5.67924.

I'm 32.5 years old.

All 6 BigY BAM files I have just cause crash of the program.

My FGC BAM file gives telomere length 4.68458. I'm 55 years old.

Something went wrong I guess....

Telomere Length:
