Dear visitor: J2-M172 Haplogroup Research is done by volunteer citizen scientists and admins.
Please be patient when you encounter unfinished and outdated areas.
The dataset of the huge Lazaridis et al. 2016 paper is available for download (Reich Lab, BAM raw data). Great that the authors released the data before formal publication and even before peer review. Those three new study samples have J2 Y-DNA: I1293 North Iran Mesolithic (HotuIIIb): 1.5-2 year old individual. From Hotu Cave located in the foothills of the […]
In spring 2015 the articles J2a-L26* SNP found: Z6064? New seldom clade J2a-PH890 and Structure for the J2a-SK1363 clade (including Montgomery, etc. clusters) explained the knowledge about the so far mainly European Z35789, Z35788 subclade. The Montgomery Ireland/Scotland Kits 182443/YF02153, 37060 had known BigY results then. Kit N63471/YF03987 Hunt England later allowed to split the tree into Z35789, Z35788 > […]
J2a1-PF5172,PF5190 seems a very old haplogroup: YFull YTree v4.3 J-PF5172 estimates the TMRCA to 14,300 years. In May 2015 the first upload of a J2a1-PF5172(xPF5169) NGS result to YFull (BigY 217812/YF03340 Armenia) allowed to compare the novel YFS SNPs with the tur-7 Turkey (Hallast et al 2014) sample as well as get the above stated time estimate. The comparison resulted in […]
Since almost a year ago (see FGC16096 unites L198,L433 and L1064 under PF5169) it was known that FGC16096>L433>M419 and that S15439 and other equivalent SNPs were shared by 192731/YF03103 and two Dutch men (GoNL project). During the Christmas sale it was possible to fund one NGS BigY testing for the M419 sample (271420 Lieb Germany) thanks to the donors in […]
I was able to analyze BigY SNP files and BigY matches of 410707 Qatar and 422501 Bahrain/Qatar (Iran in image is an error). See http://tree.j2-m172.info/?Hg=J2a1a2b http://www.yfull.com/tree/J-Z6064/ I was able to find new haplogroups and defining SNPs: 21649216 A G J2a1a2b PH4856 21826003 C A J2a1a2b PH4959 18931176 A G J2a1a2b1 approx. PH4099 14095703 G T J2a1a2b1 approx. PH890 22735991 T […]
I was able to analyze the BigY SNP file of kit 158595 Balkan/Anatolia. The nearest NGS match is B4848/YF03418 C.Italy. See http://tree.j2-m172.info/?Hg=J2b2a1a1b http://www.yfull.com/tree/J-Y15058/ 3 shared SNPs not found in other samples so far which I have registered with Z-names: 23429009 C T J2b2a1a1b2 Z40052 8539814 G C J2b2a1a1b2 Z40053 16231183 T C J2b2a1a1b2 Z40054 It is suggested to get the […]
Rodriguez-Flores et al 2016 in their study about the ancient Eurasian population split sequenced with a median depth of 37× 108 purportedly unrelated individuals who are citizens of the nation of Qatar. 56 of them are of indigenous Bedouin ancestry who are the best representatives of autochthonous Arabs. Genetically most of them could be placed in three distinct clusters: 60 […]
The years 2014 and 2015 did provide useful ancient genomes NGS data in an increasing manner (see ancient J2-M172 genomes). For J2 the year 2016 could not begin more exciting: Martiniano et al published a paper about nine ancient genomes from northern Britain: Genomic signals of migration and continuity in Britain before the Anglo-Saxons. As introduction to the sample of interest […]
See earlier post: J2a-L26* SNP found: Z6064? New seldom clade J2a-PH890 I have done analysis on the new BigY result of 410707 Qatar. He splits the haplogroup so far shared only of 14919/YF03482 Fryer and Pal-5257 Palestinian into PH4959,PH4856 (shared) and PH4099,PH890 (unshared). So the current path from J2a ancestor down to 14919 now is: J2a PF4610>L26>Z6064>PH4959>PH890 See Research tree link […]
Analysis of two BigY SNP reports of FTDNA allowed to refine the M319 subtree. Kit N96398 Pastrana Advincula shares 48 SNPs with an anonymous 1000 Genomes sample from Spain: HG01781. Kit 280709 shares 44 of those SNPs and additionally two more with HG01781 only. I pre-registered the SNPs and defined haplogroups Z39600,Z39603 and Z39632,Z39622. The latter needs confirmation trough more […]
