About us

The main goal for our R1a-S18681 Project is to understand this subclade and explore the deeper structure.

We will focus on the subclades of R1a-S18681 to find out their origin and potential migration routes.

There are two major subclades under S18681, all of them defined based on specific SNP mutations: Y12463 (United Kingdom, Denmark, Germany Poland, Ukraine, Russia) and YP315 (Germany, Poland, United Kingdom, Ireland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Lithuania, Ukraine, Russia end even Portugal). See the individual subclades on the map:
