Here's a quote from the article linked below.

Quote
Today’s big news is that David Mittelman with Family Tree DNA late this afternoon announced the Big Y DNA test which would be known as a ‘full Y sequence” test. The test will provide results on 10,000,000 base-pairs and approximately 25,000 SNPs on the Y chromosome.

The regular price is $695, but it is being initially offered to current clients only for $495 though the end of November.  A current vial can be used if one exists, otherwise a new one will be sent.

Family Tree DNA Announces the Big Y

Sadly for me, my dna testing budget is pretty much spent, and with Christmas nearly upon us, there is no way I can afford this right now.

But some of you might want to go for it.

I have a budget for more testing. Is Big Y going to look at different locations on the Y than Full Genomes is? Don't see a need to replicate my Full Genomes results, but the more SNPs the better.

It is interesting that when Bennett asked me in Boston what a good price point for a test such as this would be, and I told him it should be $500 if he wanted to get enough customers. A good guess on my part, I suppose.

You were right. A lot of orders are coming in already, and my bulk email announcing it to the R-L21 Plus Project members hasn't even gone out yet.

Wish I could do it, but I have a Chromo2 on order for myself and a Geno 2.0 for my dad. Big Y will have to wait.

Larry Mayka let me know that the "Big Y" is now on ISOGG's comparative SNP testing table:

Seems to me this is the big hope to find a SNP for those who are DF13 and currently negative for all SNP's below.

According to the people at FullGenomes, the Big Y has less coverage than their test.

It does, but it's also a lot cheaper.

The "Big Y" now appears on ISOGG's comparative Y-DNA SNP Testing Chart.

Ditto, I was saving for GB's Chromo 2 but now FTDNA now has this BIG Y and with Christmas and tight money I will not be able to meet the Nov deadline.  I can only hope it will be on sale again in the future.  I will go FTDNA rout if I can.  Charlie R21+ DF13+,
