The distribution of Y-chromosomal single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) haplogroups and short tandem repeat (STR) haplotypes was determined in a sample of 102 unrelated men of Arab origin from northwestern Algeria (Oran area). [] Key Result A total of nine different haplogroups were identified by a panel of 22 binary markers. The most common haplogroups observed in the Algerian population were E3b2 (45.1%) and J1 (22.5%).
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.
Genetic structure in the paternal lineages of South East Spain revealed by the analysis of 17 Y-STRs
TLDR
The genetic data of 17 Y chromosome short tandem repeats in 146 unrelated donor residents in the provinces of Granada, Málaga, and Almería were analyzed and confirmed that the GMA population does not reflect any male genetic influence of the North African people.
Understanding the Y chromosome variation in Korea—relevance of combined haplogroup and haplotype analyses
TLDR
High-resolution haplogroup and haplotype data will improve the understanding of regional Y-chromosome variation or recent migration routes and will also help to infer haplogroups background or common ancestry.
Development of a Y-STR 12-plex PCR system and haplotype analysis in a Korean population
TLDR
It is believed that the newly developed 12-plex Y-STR PCR system will provide more discriminative power and will be suitable for practical forensic uses, and was highly sensitive even with minimal amounts of genomic DNA.
Determination of population origin: a comparison of autosomal SNPs, Y-chromosomal and mtDNA haplogroups using a Malagasy population as example
TLDR
The analysis of autosomal SNPs could confirm the admixed character of the Malagasy population, even if it pointed to a greater African influence as detectable by Y-chromosomal or mtDNA analysis.
Synthetic review on the genetic relatedness between North Africa and Arabia deduced from paternal lineage distributions
TLDR
Y-chromosome single-nucleotide polymorphisms in the Arab world are drawn to provide an anthropological approach to the analysis of the genetic landscape of these populations, showing an important paternal gene flow from the Middle East towards North Africa.
Paternal lineages in Libya inferred from Y-chromosome haplogroups.
TLDR
Overall, the Y-haplogroup diversity in Libya and in North Africa is characterized by two genetic components, typical of Berber-speaking people (E-M81) and originating from Arabic populations (J(xJ1a,J2)-M304), in agreement with the hypothesis of an Arabic expansion from the Middle East, shaping the North African genetic landscape.

Variation in short tandem repeats is deeply structured by genetic background on the human Y chromosome.
TLDR
Genetic variability appears to be much more structured by lineage than by population, and the deep structure of the genetic variation in old genealogical units (haplogroups) challenges a population-based perspective in the comprehension of human genome diversity.
Y-chromosome genetic structure in sub-Apennine populations of Central Italy by SNP and STR analysis
TLDR
Testing high-resolution Y-chromosome data sets, e.g. using Yfiler and SNPs, increases the discriminatory capacity in individual identification for forensic purposes, and is useful in autochthonous population and micro-population studies to highlight the most informative loci for evolutionary aims.
Excavating Y-chromosome haplotype strata in Anatolia
TLDR
This comprehensive characterization of Y-chromosome heritage addresses many multifaceted aspects of Anatolian prehistory, including: the most frequent haplogroup, J, splits into two sub-clades, one of which (J2) shows decreasing variances with increasing latitude, compatible with a northward expansion.
Y chromosomal haplogroup J as a signature of the post-neolithic colonization of Europe
TLDR
Dating estimates confirmed the presence of a major population structuring at the time of spread of haplogroup J in Europe and a punctuation in the peopling of this continent in the post-Neolithic, compatible with the expansion of the Greek world.
Introduction of an single nucleodite polymorphism‐based “Major Y‐chromosome haplogroup typing kit” suitable for predicting the geographical origin of male lineages
TLDR
The approach takes advantage of the specific geographic distribution of the Y‐chromosome haplogroups and demonstrates the utility of binary polymorphisms to infer the origin of a male lineage.
A predominantly neolithic origin for Y-chromosomal DNA variation in North Africa.
TLDR
The Neolithic transition in this part of the world was accompanied by demic diffusion of Afro-Asiatic-speaking pastoralists from the Middle East, and it is suggested that the North African pattern of Y-chromosomal variation is largely of Neolithic origin.
Phylogeographic analysis of haplogroup E3b (E-M215) y chromosomes reveals multiple migratory events within and out of Africa.
TLDR
The present study shows that earlier work based on fewer Y-chromosome markers led to rather simple historical interpretations and highlights the fact that many population-genetic analyses are not robust to a poorly resolved phylogeny and reveals signatures of several distinct processes of migrations and/or recurrent gene flow that occurred in Africa and western Eurasia over the past 25000 years.
