We investigated Y chromosomal binary and STR polymorphisms in 263 unrelated male individuals from the Japanese population and further examined the relationships between the two separate types of data. Using 47 biallelic markers we distinguished 20 haplogroups, four of which (D2b1/‐022457, O3/‐002611*, O3/‐LINE1 del, and O3/‐021354*) were newly defined in this study. Most haplogroups in the Japanese population are found in one of the three major clades, C, D, or O. Among these, two major… 

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.

Assignment of Y-chromosomal SNPs found in Japanese population to Y-chromosomal haplogroup tree

The relationship between Y-chromosome single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) registered in the Japanese SNP (JSNP) database (http://snp.ims.u-tokyo.ac.jp) and Y-binary haplogroup lineages was

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.

Y chromosome homogeneity in the Korean population

TLDR
The survey shows that the present data of Korean individuals could be helpful to establish a comprehensive forensic reference database for frequency estimation.

An updated tree of Y-chromosome Haplogroup O and revised phylogenetic positions of mutations P164 and PK4

TLDR
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.

TLDR
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.

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.

High frequencies of Y-chromosome haplogroup O2b-SRY465 lineages in Korea: a genetic perspective on the peopling of Korea

TLDR
The findings are consistent with linguistic, archaeological and historical evidence, which suggest that the direct ancestors of Koreans were proto-Koreans who inhabited the northeastern region of China and the Korean Peninsula during the Neolithic and Bronze Ages.

Y-chromosomal DNA haplogroups and their implications for the dual origins of the Koreans

TLDR
The distribution pattern of Y-chromosomal haplogroups reveals the complex origin of the Koreans, resulting from genetic contributions involving the northern Asian settlement and range expansions mostly from southern-to-northern China.

Genetic variations on the Y chromosome in the Japanese population and implications for modern human Y chromosome lineage

TLDR
The haplotype analysis of the Y chromosome may contribute to the exploration of the origin of Japanese and the relationship between east Asian populations.

Evaluation of Y-chromosomal STRs: a multicenter study

TLDR
It is suggested that Y-STR loci are useful markers to identify males and male lineages in forensic practice and recommended for the forensic application of a basic set of 7 STRs for standard Y-haplotyping in forensic and paternity casework.

High-resolution SNPs and microsatellite haplotypes point to a single, recent entry of Native American Y chromosomes into the Americas.

TLDR
The hypothesis of a single migration of a polymorphic founding population better fits the expanded database and traced both lineages to a probable ancestral homeland in the vicinity of the Altai Mountains in Southwest Siberia.

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 chromosomal DNA variation and the peopling of Japan.

TLDR
Four loci mapping to the nonrecombining portion of the Y chromosome were genotyped in Japanese populations from Okinawa, the southernmost island of Japan; Shizuoka and Aomori on the main island of Honshu; and a small sample of Taiwanese, confirming the irregular distribution of this polymorphism in Asia.

High Levels of Y-Chromosome Differentiation among Native Siberian Populations and the Genetic Signature of a Boreal Hunter-Gatherer Way of Life

TLDR
The Siberian pattern of reduced haplogroup diversity within populations combined with high levels of differentiation among populations may be a general feature characteristic of indigenous groups that have small effective population sizes and that have been isolated for long periods of time.

A short tandem repeat-based phylogeny for the human Y chromosome.

TLDR
A phylogenetic-network approach is developed and validated that produces a phylogeny that is independently supported by the five biallelic mutations, with an error of 6%.

Y-Chromosome multiplexes and their potential for the DNA profiling of Koreans

TLDR
The results revealed that a set of ten Y-STRs can discriminate between most of the male individuals in the Korean population (discrimination capacity: 93.35%) and provide useful information for forensic analysis and paternity tests and can also be of great benefit for providing information not normally available from autosomal DNA systems.
