I think I phrased the question poorly so I'll try again.
If the full genomes of 2 brothers were compared, would they have the same
The answer may be obvious to some, but not to me. Depending on the answer to
this question, I may have another.

I should think that a comparison of the brother's results would give us a
handle on how
many mutations (SNPs) occur on the Y-chromosome (or any other chromosome) in
generation. A comparison with a very, very distant relative should support
(or not) the
observed mutation rate.
