Haplogroup Prediction from Y-STR Values Using an Allele-Frequency Approach

  title={Haplogroup Prediction from Y-STR Values Using an Allele-Frequency Approach},
  author={T. Whit Athey},
A new approach to predicting the Y-chromosome haplogroup from a set of Y-STR marker values is presented and compared to other approaches. The method has been implemented in an Excel-based program, where an arbitrary number of STR markers may be input and a “goodness of fit” score for 10 haplogroups (E3a, E3b, G, I1a, I1b, I1c, J2, N3, R1a, and R1b) is returned. This method has been applied to 101 R1b haplotypes and 50 I1a haplotypes (all having 37 STR markers available), and the distribution of… CONTINUE READING
