Team


All team members are citizen science volunteers not employed or paid. Since 2013 they collaborate directly in J2-M172 Haplogroup Research.

Honor code

Each Team member/collaborator/researcher is expected to:

  • respect the privacy and interests of donors and project members;
  • have experience with Y-STR distance and Y-SNP lineage research;
  • collaborate and share research with other team members;
  • do public phylogeny research (NextGenSequencing, SNPs, Trees, etc.);
  • do public STR-Haplotype cluster research (GD, TMRCA, etc.);
  • do public Haplogroup distribution research (Frequency Maps, Diversity Maps, ethnic background, ancient DNA, etc.);
