The Y Chromosome DNA Sequence

Genealogists keep asking us, if we can sequence their whole ChrY?

The answer is: No!

  • -

    Too large

  • -

    Too expensive

  • -

    Too many difficult or unaccessible sequence regions

  • -

    Whole genome sequencing technologies can't be used

because of the highly repetitive structure of ChrY

But we can pick the more interesting regions that can easily be sequenced with direct sequencing technology from PCR products and start a Walk On The Y Project
