J2a2-PH3085,SK1403: Ancient Altai, modern Uygur and Turkish

The huge Allentoft et al. 2015 research with low-coverage genomes from 101 ancient humans from across Eurasia included two males from Altai Iron Age (900 BC to 1000 AD) in the same J2a2 haplogroup (see Altai archaeology). Even more intriguing is that the ancient genomes share unique Y-SNPs with two modern samples: one Uygur and one Turkish, currently best named […]


Y-DNA J-Project @FTDNA History 2006-2013

The “J-Project” was founded by Bonnie Schrack in 2006 and until 2013 has done considerable research in the J2 area, mainly SNP research (Z385-Z639, Z2220-Z2397) from public Y-Sequences to improve the Haplogroup-Phylogeny and provide updates to the ISOGG tree (accepted also by scientists). To backup important news from this time period and make them available for search here, a copy […]
