Way way back in 2010, the project funded Walk Through the Y testing for a number of project members. One of those was a Guatemalan Q-M3 participant with Mayan ancestry. Though many new Y-SNPs were found in testing, they did not connect with the rest of the Q Tree.
This month, the project upgraded him to the BIG Y. With it, we will be able to connect his branch of the tree with our growing Q Tree. We expect that he will fit in with branches discovered in 1,000 genomes research.
