Surfing the SNP Tsunami: The Exponential Growth of the Y-DNA Haplotree

Presenter: Janine Cloud


Sponsored by Janine Cloud

The use of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) spurred the growth of the Y-DNA Haplotree at a rate that was unthinkable five years ago, with citizen scientists leading the way. This presentation looks at the growth of the Y Haplotree and how the SNP “tsunami” has changed how we approach Y-DNA testing. Includes an update on current FTDNA Y Haplotree and SNP catalog.
