J2a2-PF5050,PF5053: refinement based on analysis of Sardinian and Kuwaiti data

The publication of Francalacci et al. 2015 Sardinian samples 826-835 as well the BigY result of 208140 Kuwait allowed further refinement of the J2a2 subclades which is very needed since not many Y-NextGenSequences in this Haplogroup are known. Earlier ancient and modern genomes allowed the discovery of  J2a2-PH3085,SK1403: Ancient Altai, modern Uygur and Turkish. Sardinian 826-828: form the Z28317,Z28324 clade […]

J2b-M205>PH4306: a little substructure for this isolated lineage

The diversification of J2b into M205,CTS560,PF7316 and the brother Z575,CTS2622/Z1827 seems to have happened a long time ago (YTree v3.12 16200 ybp) while the diversification of M205 was possibly only 5600 ybp. So this seems a long time of isolation without expansions if no so far undetected splits do exist. Using data from Hallast et al 2014 and Estonian Biocentre / […]

J2b-PH1751,PH2967: brother of Z1297

The analysis of Sicilian, Circassian/Abazin and Greek samples revealed this new ISOGG candidate downstream of Z1296/CTS8995 and parallel to Z1297. Little is known about the further distribution but the best matching haplotypes are Albanian/Macedonian, Austrian and one probably from todays Turkey. Z1296 is currently estimated by YFull YTree v3.12 to have diversified ca. 3,800 years ago. The genetic distance between […]

J2b-CTS3617: southern brother of Z638 detected in Balkans and Italy

Two samples uploaded to YFull allowed a more detailed analysis of this clade so far only marginally known. Parallel to Z638,CTS12554 (father of to the known Z1296/CTS8995) this branch seems to be more southern and was not detected so far in Northwest Europe. Basic structure CTS3617, Y15058/Z34462 {Z38240.} PH1602, PH1601 {PH2350, PH502} [PH3514, PH4583] [(306997/YF02051 Bulgaria YFS 11+10-5)] [(ser-13 Serbia […]
