Y-Tree is an interactive version of the current Y-Chromosome Consortium's (YCC) phylogenetic tree and the Family Tree DNA Draft Y-chromosome tree. It is found at http://ytree.ftdna.com/.
Y-Tree is maintained through the shared efforts of the staff in the Genomic Research Center (GRC), the Family Tree DNA Bioinformatics team, and by members of the community.

When a new Y-chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) DNA SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism) is discovered, its placement changes the names of the inner nodes (branch points) on the tree. As scientific knowledge advances, so will both the Family Tree DNA Draft Tree and the Y-Chromosome Consortium's phylogenetic Trees.
The Family Tree DNA Draft Tree is a proposed tree based upon the latest known (confirmed) phylogeny.
