The Y chromosome contains the largest nonrecombining block in the human genome. By virtue of its many polymorphisms, it is now the most informative haplotyping system, with applications in evolutionary studies, forensics, medical genetics, and genealogical reconstruction. However, the emergence of several unrelated and nonsystematic nomenclatures for Y-chromosomal binary haplogroups is an increasing source of confusion. To resolve this issue, 245 markers were genotyped in a globally… Expand
New binary polymorphisms reshape and increase resolution of the human Y chromosomal haplogroup tree.
TLDR
Major changes in the topology of the parsimony tree are described and names for new and rearranged lineages within the tree following the rules presented by the Y Chromosome Consortium in 2002 are provided. Expand
The Human Y Chromosome Haplogroup Tree: Nomenclature and Phylogeography of Its Major Divisions
TLDR
The recent construction of a highly resolved tree of the nonrecombining portion of the Y chromosome (NRY), and the development of a cladistic nomenclatural system to name the resulting haplogroups support the hypothesis of an African origin of human NRY diversity. Expand
Identifying Y-chromosome haplogroups in arbitrarily large samples of sequenced or genotyped men
TLDR
An algorithm to rapidly and accurately identify the Y-chromosome haplogroup of each male in a sample of one to millions is developed, robust to missing data, genotype errors, mutation recurrence, and other complications. Expand
Hierarchical analysis of 30 Y-chromosome SNPs in European populations
TLDR
The selected method for allele discrimination was a single base extension reaction using the SNaPshot multiplex kit and no significant differences were detected among the different districts, except for the population from Mariña Lucense, which showed a distant haplogroup frequency but not higher Φst values. Expand
A revised root for the human Y chromosomal phylogenetic tree: the origin of patrilineal diversity in Africa.
TLDR
An analysis of 2204 African DNA samples showed that the deepest clades of the revised MSY phylogeny are currently found in central and northwest Africa, opening new perspectives on early human presence in the continent. Expand
Y Chromosomal SNP Analysis Using the MinisequencingStrategy in a Moroccan Population Samples
TLDR
These markers would allow inference of the paternal ancestry of unknown samples which could be useful in forensic applications and low mutation rate, paternal inheritance, and absence of recombination make Y-SNPs particularly suitable for the identification of stable paternal lineages. Expand
A New Topology of the Human Y Chromosome Haplogroup E1b1 (E-P2) Revealed through the Use of Newly Characterized Binary Polymorphisms
TLDR
The phylogeny of this highly diverse haplogroup is updated by including seven mutations which have been newly discovered by direct resequencing, and most of the E1b1b 1* (E-M35*) paragroup chromosomes are now marked by defining mutations, thus increasing the discriminative power of the haplogroups for use in human evolution and forensics. Expand
Y-Chromosome Variation in Southern African Khoe-San Populations Based on Whole-Genome Sequences
TLDR
High-coverage sequencing of the whole Y chromosome in a data set of 19 male Khoe-San individuals in comparison with existing whole Y-chromosome sequence data is described and the positioning of tentatively placed new branches of the ISOGG Y- Chromosome phylogeny is improved. Expand
Studies of human genetic history using the Y chromosome
TLDR
The time-depth of the phylogeny and geographical distribution of the deepest-rooting haplogroups are compatible with a recent African origin for modern humans. Expand

The role of the Y chromosome in human evolutionary studies
TLDR
The addition of DNA sequencining survey data to the rapidly growing RFLP data base made it feasible for the first time to determine the exact number of nucleotide substitutions between different alleles, as well as to construct gene trees and reconstruct the phylogenetic history of populations.

TLDR
The Y was systematically surveyed for further long-range polymorphisms, by the hybridization of 33 probes to SfiI digests of DNA from males of different ethnic origins and from the two groups, and five novel polymorphisms were identified. Expand
The phylogeography of Y chromosome binary haplotypes and the origins of modern human populations
TLDR
A set of unique event polymorphisms associated with the non‐recombining portion of the Y‐chromosome (NRY) addresses this issue by providing evidence concerning successful migrations originating from Africa, which can be interpreted as subsequent colonizations, differentiations and migrations overlaid upon previous population ranges.

A pre-Columbian Y chromosome-specific transition and its implications for human evolutionary history.
TLDR
The data suggest a single origin of linguistically diverse native Americans with subsequent haplotype differentiation within radiating indigenous populations as well as post-Columbian European and African gene flow. Expand
A recent insertion of an alu element on the Y chromosome is a useful marker for human population studies.

  • 1994
TLDR
Phylogenetic comparisons with other Alu sequences reveal that the YAP element is a member of the polymorphic subfamily-3 (PSF-3), a previously undefined subfamily of Alu elements, which support the hypothesis that recently inserted elements result from multiple source genes. Expand
The geographic distribution of human Y chromosome variation.
TLDR
Variation on the nonrecombining portion of the human Y chromosome is examined to investigate human evolution during the last 200,000 years, compatible with a variety of hypotheses, including multiple human migrations and range expansions. Expand
A recent common ancestry for human Y chromosomes
TLDR
Inferences contradict predictions of the multiregional hypothesis positing a widespread transformation of Homo erectus populations into Homo sapiens and are consistent with auto-somal and mitochondrial DNA studies that suggest a long-term human effective population size of 10,000 and a sex ratio of 1. Expand
Hierarchical patterns of global human Y-chromosome diversity.
TLDR
A nested cladistic analysis (NCA) demonstrated that both population structure processes (recurrent gene flow restricted by isolation by distance and long-distance dispersals) and population history events were instrumental in explaining this tripartite division of global NRY diversity. Expand
New uses for new haplotypes the human Y chromosome, disease and selection.
TLDR
There are new opportunities to assess the Y chromosome's role in disease and selection, through association studies with phenotypes such as infertility and cancers, but the peculiar genetics of this bizarre chromosome means that such studies should be interpreted particularly cautiously. Expand
