Family Tree DNA does not have a file format for Y-chromosome DNA single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) results. However, your raw data, the actual values for [...]
Yes. It is possible that a SNP will back mutate (change back). However, SNPs are slow changing. Thus, back mutations are uncommon.
No, the names in the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroups do not correspond with the same names in the Y-chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) haplogroups.
Y-Chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) haplogroups and subclades names follow the conventions of the Y-Chromosome Consortium’s (YCC). The YCC short form names haplogroups with the first letter from [...]
Family Tree DNA updates the phylogenetic tree when we have substantial evidence that there is a new branch or a new placement for a [...]
At Family Tree DNA, a Y-DNA haplogroup prediction is calculated using genetic distance. The calculation finds your most likely haplogroup. The prediction program compares [...]
