R1b-U106 Y-DNA Haplogroup
This R1b-U106 Project “Results” page, under the “About this Group” tab, will be used to explain the “Classic” or “Colorized” haplotype data presented under the “Y-DNA Results” tab; and other results information, sometimes general, and sometimes specific.
The R1b-U106 tree is under-going extensive revision due to the new National Geographic Geno 2.0 test, a partnership between NG and FTDNA. It will take time to revise the arrangement of the haplotypes to agree with the additional layering from the revision.
Y-DNA Results “Classic” or “Colorized” pages:
The members’ haplotype data are presented on those pages in an FTDNA-designed format, but sub-grouped by the R1b-U106 Project Administrators on the basis of SNP testing.
An individual member’s haplotype is reported on these pages according to whatever subclade he has tested positive for ANY of its defining SNPs (as shown in the subgroup label), without testing positive for any lower subclade on his branch.
The haplotypes of members who have tested positive for ALL of the defining SNPs of a subclade, and negative for ALL of the SNPs at the next immediate level below, are shown in the star “ * “ group for that subclade. The otherwise asterisk symbol which the DNA scientists pronounce “star”, means that the member is fully up-to-date with his SNP testing, and has proven his status in his subclade, until such time as a new relevant SNP becomes testable.
The * symbol is not used for terminal branch SNPs, such as Z343, because there are no known lower SNPs for which to prove negative.
Some of the groups have "Founder estimates" in ybp (years before the present = 1950), based on calculations by Dr. Tim Janzen, representing the age of the subclade.
Older SNPs, such as L48, are generally available via the tester's personal page, under "Haplotree", then a mid-page orange label called "ORDER SNPS NOW".
Newer SNPs, such as the Z SNPs, are generally available via the tester's personal page, under the upper right orange label "ORDER AN UPGRADE", via "Order an Advanced Test", via "SNP" and then type the SNP name such as "Z156" into the little window, and click "FIND".
There is a link to the continuously revised R1b-U106 Tree under the Background tab here.
Y-DNA Results "SNP" Page:
The "SNP" list page is totally under the control of FTDNA, and is arranged by FTDNA Haplogroup designation and its shorthand, such as R-U106 or R-L48. Whenever the FTDNA haplogroups are updated for the many new SNPs, and new haplogroup designations named, then the SNP list will be re-ordered in that order, by FTDNA. Until they do that, there's nothing we can do about it.
