Background

"Walk Through the Y" [WTY] is a unique consumer-funded initiative headed by Thomas Krahn of FTDNA's Genomics Research Center. Its purpose is to sequence large contiguous segments of the Y-chromosome in order to seek out undiscovered SNPs. These new discoveries will both further develop our understanding of the human Y-chromosomal phylogenetic tree (also known as deep ancestry), and can potentially provide group participants with unique and private markers that can aid personal genetic genealogy within a more recent time frame.

Clusters and Metagroups Under Investigation


R-P312* R1b-NS

R1b-NS ("North/South") is a cluster first identified by Dr. Kenneth Nordtvedt in 2006, and was confirmed as P312+ in late 2008. It is typically identified by the following off-modal values: DYS437=14, DYS448=18, GATAH4=10, DYS392=13, DYS531=11, DYS388=12, DYS426=12, and DYS454=11.

R-P312* R1b-Ub

R1b-Ub ("Ubiquitous") is a cluster first identified by Dr. Kenneth Nordtvedt in 2006, but is not yet confirmed as being purely P312*. Amongst the off-modal values that characterize it are: DYS391=10, DYS456=15, DYS459=9,9 and YCAii=19,22.

R-P312* R1b-Nor

Also discovered by Dr. Kenneth Nordtvedt a few years ago, the R1b Norse cluster appears to be P312+. It is typically identified by the following off-modal values: DYS385a/b=11,13; DYS439=11; DYS441=14; DYS446=15
