Update: I added YouTube link that I found that was mentioned in a Facebook group about Full Genomes long read test: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJnI8I9WitE&t=2814s&fbclid=IwAR1JYOfw3U_UkRs-GPEyP7iKoAmWpkqpVsy5aV9BFhT1sbts703M9wbfqL4 (look at around 39 minutes, 57 seconds for the discussion if you don’t see it initially).
I would like to thank Justin Loe, CEO of Full Genomes – https://www.fullgenomes.com/ for letting me about a price change on one of their products. I haven’t tested with Full Genomes yet, but it’s on my Bucket List. From many others who have tested with the company, the reviews tend to be positive by a large margin.
Here are links to the different tests they offer:
- Whole Genome Sequencing: https://www.fullgenomes.com/whole-genome-sequencing/ (several tests offered)
- Y-Chromosome Sequencing: https://www.fullgenomes.com/y-chromosome-sequencing/ (several options available) –
- Analysis and More: https://www.fullgenomes.com/analysis-and-more/
They offer BAM file analysis if you have a BAM file from another company.
Here’s their Q&A link: https://www.fullgenomes.com/qanda/.
They don’t offer autosomal testing like some of their competitors, but if you have a BAM file from Full Genomes, you could create an autosomal kit that could be used in a pinch. I posted about it a while back, but you are going to need some either an IT background or a friend with some good tech skills to get it to work.
I checked out Justin‘s bio on Google Plus and he has something in common with another blogger I follow: Jamie of https://applegategenealogy.wordpress.com/. They both attended University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I talk about it being a small world and here’s a good case. That’s not counting my North Carolina roots which are mostly Outer Banks or slightly inland from the Outer Banks.
Here’s a Facebook group for Full Genomes: https://www.facebook.com/groups/fullgenomesY/.

If you have tested with Full Genomes, it’s possible to upload your Y-DNA results to YFull – https://yfull.com/ for comparing with others who have tested with a company that provides a BAM file. YFull is a different company than Full Genomes, but it’s one of the few sites where you can do Y-DNA comparisons between testers who have Y-DNA tested at different companies.
The below is listed in my Current January 2019 DNA Sales post. It’s not a full price list, but if you click the links in the bullet points, you can see prices and products that I haven’t covered.
