R-M153 The Basque Marker - Goals

1) Determine what part this WAMH marker had in the genetic landscape of Western Europe.
2) Determine the origins of different clusters within M153.
3) Determine if there are connections to earlier paleolithic populations to the east or south (Iberomaurusians) of the Basque Country.
4) Determine which SNP below R-M153 belongs to the western Pyrenees and which belongs to the eastern part per DNA research (In search of the Pre- and Post-Neolithic Genetic Substrates in Iberia: Evidence from Y-Chromosome in Pyrenean Populations).
