Thread: Big-Y Sales?

    FGC Y Prime Test at $589 versus FTDNA Big Y at $595

    The FGC Y Prime DNA Test At A US Lab Is Now $589 Per Their Website.

    What is the average expected turnaround time for the Y Prime test once FGC has the sample back?

    What is the average expected turnaround time for the $595 FTDNA Big Y test once FTDNA has the sample back?

    Is the FGC Y Prime average coverage range in the 90% to 95% range versus the $999 FGC Y Elite test?

    Is the FTDNA Big Y average coverage range in the 50% to 65% range versus the $999 FGC Y Elite test?

    FGC claims near a 99.9% mtDNA coverage range (test is free at FGC with Y Prime or Y Elite) versus a FTDNA FMS near 100% Coverage Range for their separate $199 test, is that correct?

    I got my Big Y results on 10/28/2014

    I had to check my previous posts to find that on 6/12/2014 my BigY was Ordered and was batched on 6/19/2014 as 575
    -so it was 4 months and 14 days from start to finish, for those that are interested.

    As a reminder, I was one of 3 samples sent in as part of the Whalen-Vance group 2a bunch, to try to see if we had our own SNP and unravel any info for both our immediate family lines and the larger L513 group as to how this line historically developed.

    Trying to keep things short and sweet, we succeed in finding several unique SNP's for our grouping!. For developmental reasons, MikeWWW is taking the first unique SNP in a 41 marker phylogenic block as the 'named' SNP, so we are now Z23506. There was another candidate for our 'naming' SNP, FGC16870 as it was noted first, but for a variety of what seems to me to be hard core science reasons, Z23506 is the wiser choice. We actually don't know which of the 42 unique SNP's the 3 of us share in our Big Y test is historically the first to occur, so things might eventually change, but for now...

    ZOWIE, I'm a Z23506

    Apparently, according to the smart kids in the class (MikeWWW, David Vance ect), another interesting and possible wider ranging thing was found in our sample as we all turned out to be S5668- S6365-. Using MikeWWW's own words when he answered a question of mine in the YahooGroups L513 project....
    "In Bruce's chart ( )
    you can see that he has two big branches, one for S5668 and one for S6365. Most of us L513 people fit into one of these two branches, but the Vance/Whalen VW group does not."
    Apparently, there are a few other surnames that are similar and MikeWWW feels our results mean they have to add a whole new basic arm to L513 tree...exciting stuff for us geek types!

    I will post 2 jpegs I made from some stuff MikeWWW and I created, to help me figure stuff out and remember who was, for 111 tested STR's, Dave Vance has a genetic distance of 6 and Marilyn (Kenson Vance) is at 9

    Many thanks to my Vance cousins Dave, Marilyn and Grace that organized this testing and helped fund the majority of my test.
    Many Many thanks to the citizen scientists that are leading much of the progress on this through their volunteer efforts, particularly MikeWWW!!
