The finding of disaccord in haplogroup prediction by online software in a father-son pair

Although Y-STR typing seems more widely used in forensic casework and convenient to predict haplogroup with online tools, our finding suggested that the occurrence of errors in Y-chromosome haplogroup prediction should be cautious.

The history of the Y chromosome in man

Studies of the Y chromosome over the past few decades have opened a window into the history of our species, through the reconstruction and exploitation of a patrilineal (Y-genealogical) tree based on several hundred single-nucleotide variants (SNVs). A new study validates, refines and extends this tree by incorporating >65,000 Y-linked variants identified in 1,244 men representing worldwide diversity.

Y-chromosomal DNA analyzed for four prehistoric cemeteries from Cis-Baikal, Siberia

Results have been obtained from 16 males from the EN cemeteries Lokomotiv and Shamanka II representing haplogroups K, R1a1 and C3, and 20 males from the LN-EBA Ust'-Ida and Kurma XI cemeteries representing haplogroups Q, K and unidentified SNP (L914).
