Fathers,Sons,Brothers- Background



Brothers, Father, Sons


The aim of this project is to gather father-son and brother-brother haplotype comparisons in order to help in the estimation of father to son Y-STR mutation rates for FTDNA markers. All haplogroups are welcome to participate. Depending on how things develop, 1st cousins may be added at a later stage.

Analysis will be done in an auxiliary website yet to be set up. In the interim, such analysis that has been done will be temporarily housed at
