  author={Chuan-Chao Wang and Hui Li},
  journal={arXiv: Populations and Evolution},
Current Y chromosome research is limited in the poor resolution of Y chromosome phylogenetic tree. Entirely sequenced Y chromosomes in numerous human individuals have only recently become available by the advent of next-generation sequencing technology. The 1000 Genomes Project has sequenced Y chromosomes from more than 1000 males. Here, we analyzed 1000 Genomes Project Y chromosome data of 1269 individuals and discovered about 25,000 phylogenetic relevant SNPs. Those new markers are useful in… 
Detection of phylogenetically informative polymorphisms in the entire euchromatic portion of human Y chromosome from a Sardinian sample
The non X-degenerate classes contain a significant portion of the phylogenetic variation of the whole chromosome and their inclusion in the analysis, almost doubling the number of informative polymorphisms, refining the known molecular phylogeny of the human Y chromosome.
Functional and evolutionary impact of polymorphic inversions in the human genome
The results indicate that the genome is more dynamic than previously thought and that human inversions have important functional and evolutionary consequences, making possible to determine for the first time their contribution to complex traits.
Generation of high-resolution a priori Y-chromosome phylogenies using “next-generation” sequencing data
An approach for generating high-resolution a priori maximum parsimony Y-chromosome (“chrY”) phylogenies based on SNP and small INDEL variant data from massively-parallel short-read

AMY-tree: an algorithm to use whole genome SNP calling for Y chromosomal phylogenetic applications
AMY-tree is a useful tool to determine the Y lineage of a sample based on SNP calling, to identify Y-SNPs with yet unknown phylogenetic position and to optimize the Y chromosomal phylogenetic tree in the future.
Sequencing Y Chromosomes Resolves Discrepancy in Time to Common Ancestor of Males Versus Females
The findings suggest that, contrary to previous claims, male lineages do not coalesce significantly more recently than female lineages.

  • 2002
A simple set of rules was developed to unambiguously label the different clades nested within a single most parsimonious phylogeny, which supersedes and unifies past nomenclatures and allows the inclusion of additional mutations and haplogroups yet to be discovered.
New binary polymorphisms reshape and increase resolution of the human Y chromosomal haplogroup tree.
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.
Low-Pass DNA Sequencing of 1200 Sardinians Reconstructs European Y-Chromosome Phylogeny
A putative age for coalescence of ~180,000 to 200,000 years ago is calculated, which is consistent with previous mitochondrial DNA–based estimates and indicates the presumptive timing of coalescence with other human populations.
A calibrated human Y-chromosomal phylogeny based on resequencing.
A nearly 10-fold increase in the number of Y markers with phylogenetic information, and novel historical insights derived from placing them on a calibrated phylogenetic tree are provided.
Y chromosome sequence variation and the history of human populations
Binary polymorphisms associated with the non-recombining region of the human Y chromosome (NRY) preserve the paternal genetic legacy of our species that has persisted to the present, permitting
An updated tree of Y-chromosome Haplogroup O and revised phylogenetic positions of mutations P164 and PK4
The phylogenetic position of recently defined markers (L127, KL1, KL2, P164, and PK4) in the background of Haplogroup O is determined and this revision evidently improved the resolving power of Y-chromosome phylogeny in East Asia.
Y chromosome DNA haplotyping suggests that most European and Asian men are descended from one of two males.
Three hypervariable Y chromosome DNA loci have been analyzed in human males and the haplotypes defined allow paternal lineages to be identified, indicating that the ancestry of a large proportion of the men studied can be traced back to one of two males.
