About us

Welcome to the R2-M124-WTY DNA Project
Any individual with Haplogroup R2 (Y-DNA) is welcome to join the project. The goal of the R2-M124-WTY project is to grow the R2 Haplogroup Tree by discovering new SNPs under Haplogroup R2. New SNP discoveries help in subdividing Haplogroups (such as R2) into further branches.
This can be best achieved by ordering one of the following tests
(or both if affordable)::
The Big Y DNA Test from www.familytreedna.com. It costs $575.
The Y Elite 2.0 Sequencing Test from www.fullgenomes.com. It costs $775.
For more information about the Big Y DNA Test, go to https://www.familytreedna.com/learn/y-dna-testing/big-y/
For the specifications of the Y Elite 2.0 Sequencing Test, go to: https://www.fullgenomes.com/qanda/
Kindly follow the below steps to benefit from the BIG-Y and Y Elite 2.0 Sequencing Tests:
Step 1: Once the result for any of the above tests comes out, request your BAM file from the corresponding company.
You may send the company the following e-mail:
Topic: BAM FileHello,Can you please provide me an access to the BAM file for kit number XXXXXX.
For “BIG-Y Test”, you may request the BAM file from: helpdesk@ftdna.com
For “Y Elite 2.0 Sequencing Test”, you may request the BAM file from: leon.kull@fullgenomes.com
The link of the BAM file is needed for Step 2.
Step 2: Order the
NextGen Sequence interpretation from www.yfull.com. It only costs $49. They will ask you for the link of the BAM file.Once your report is generated, you will have access to your account and you will be listed in their nice tree: http://www.yfull.com/tree/R-M479/
Step 3: E-Mail me your kit # from each company for example (familytreedna.com, fullgenomes.com, yfull.com). I will try my best to publish your new SNPs to http://isogg.org/tree/ISOGG_HapgrpR.html (Once they meet the requirements). Note: If you ordered Y Elite 2.0 Sequencing Test, you may send me the files of your results.

By joining this project, you agree to give the admin the authority to the following:
1- Add your kit to the R2 Y-Chromosome Haplogroup DNA Project: http://www.familytreedna.com/public/R22- Order additional tests or upgrades to your kit (Free of charge).

Donations:Donations now may actually mean something at this time, so please, consider how this may be a viable step for our genetic research as never before.
