About us

The project includes men with the M406 mutation or reliably predicted to be M406+. Persons unsure of their G category should join instead the G-Uncategorized Project. The administrator there can help transfer you to the correct G project if your correct category is determined. If your 37 or 67 or more marker values are different from men already in the project only by 5 or less values, you are reliably within M406. Twelve markers are not reliable for this unless you are an exact match at the 12 to an existing project member. However, a very high percentage of haplogroup G men having the value of 21 at marker DYS390 belong to the M406 group. The three major subgroups of M406 are based on men sharing one of the L14, L645 or PF3316 mutations and are included in the M406 Project. We also welcome representatives of M406 males who are deceased, unavailable or otherwise unable to join, including females as their representatives and custodians of their Y-DNA. The primary goal of the project is to identify new subgroups of haplogroup G-M406 which will provide better focus to the migration history of our haplogroup G-M406 ancestors.
