Y-DNA next generation sequencing

From ISOGG Wiki

This page was originally set up to compare individual tests from different companies. The range of SNP tests on offer is now so complicated that the format no longer works. If we include YSEQ tests on here we would also need to add columns for FTDNA SNP packs and the new FGC test.

I’m wondering if the solution might be to convert the existing chart into a comparison of the different companies that offer SNP testing. We could have separate rows for each type of test (single SNP, SNP packs/panels, microarrays, Y-chromosome sequencing, whole genome sequencing). We could then have two additional charts for side by side comparisons of microarray and next generation sequencing tests.

Feedback has also been sought on the ISOGG Project Admins list on Yahoo. See the discussion here.

Feedback has also been solicited in the ISOGG Facebook group. See the discussion here.

Please post suggestions in these groups or add comments to this discussion page. DebbieKennett (talk) 08:27, 2 August 2017 (EDT)

Suggestions for additions to the chart

I've received the suggestion that we should add the following three companies to this chart: Dante, Veritas Genetics and YSEQ. Also I wonder if we should include Helix as they now offer exome testing. DebbieKennett (talk) 18:02, 2 August 2017 (EDT)

James Kane has suggested that the references to his hg38 analysis from Anthrogenica be updated to use the numbers at The updated pipeline has considerably improved the performance on Big Y and Y Elite since the post and the other reference to my blog. The chart also includes stats on Veritas Genetics Y DNA and the LR Chromium. The pipeline itself is documented here. The Statistics page simply averages the CallableLoci reports by test type and calculates the coefficient of variance.
