Exclusive Big Y Features (option1)

VISUALIZE YOUR HAPLOGROUP’S EVOLUTIONARY HISTORY

Big Y Block Tree Matching Tool

The Big Y Block Tree makes it easier to understand how you and your matches’ paternal lineages relate to each other. Discover details like:

CLAIM YOUR PLACE ON THE TREE

Automatic updates to your haplogroup as our database grows

As our database grows, the branches on your Y-DNA haplotree gain more definition. Researchers can be more specific in identifying the descendants of a particular ancestor and in determining the time to most recent common ancestor (TMRCA).

 
COMPARE PRIVATE VARIANTS

Big Y SNP Matches

Private SNPs, or variants, are changes in genetic code that have not yet been found in other testers. Once someone with that variant tests, those private SNPs become new branches on the haplotree and a closer connection to explore. Use private variants to determine when surname lines branched off and to identify the TMRCA between you and your matches.
