Team


Team members are citizen science volunteers not employed or paid. This colloborative J2-M172 Haplogroup Research was founded in 2013.

Honor code

Each Team member/collaborator/researcher is expected to (1 + at least one other point):

  1. respect the privacy and interests of Y-DNA data donors and project members (additionally see FTDNA Admin Guidelines);
  2. have experience with Y-STR genetic distance and Y-SNP haplogroup lineage research;
  3. collaborate and share research with other team members;
  4. do public phylogeny research (NextGenSequencing, SNPs, Trees, etc.);
  5. do public STR-Haplotype cluster research (GD, TMRCA, etc.);
  6. do public Haplogroup distribution research (Frequency Maps, Diversity Maps, ethnic background, ancient DNA, etc.);
  7. provide as much support and advise as possible (in the Activity Feed, Fb groups etc.);
