About us

This project is for all J2b/J-M102 tree, except for M241 subclade.

If you don’t know your downstream haplogroup, you can use the Y-Haplogroup Predictor tool at www.nevgen.org with your Y25-Y111 results.

J2b/J-M102 is a branch of J2/M172, and this project is a partnering sub-project to J2-M172 group.
