      Thanks Gary, as always, that's sound advise.   I'll stay on the sidelines on this one until we find a compelling reason for me to test.

      Hi Joel,
      you have done a good job of narrowing down your line. This test would be best for someone not able to narrow down their line using slow mutating STR matching or those who have experimented by testing downstream markers. 

      More SNP's also known as SNIPS should be discovered using the big Y product and may provide direction in testing for downstream markers.

      In my particular case, having tested over 100 STRs, tasted for the various SNPs downstream from P-312, as well as taken the NatGeo test, what will this test teach us that we don't already know?  I'm R1b Z278+. 
      Just curious, I would be happy to take this test if it aids the research community or if it uncovers anything that we're not keenly aware of.

      The idea of being able to discover new SNP's during sequencing sounds very promising.
