Y-DNA Haplogroup R

In human genetics, Haplogroup R is a Y-chromosome DNA haplogroup.

A Y-chromosome DNA haplogroup (from the Greek: ἁπλούς, haploûs, "onefold, single, simple") is a group of Y-chromosomes with the same single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) mutation, which shows that they have a common ancestor.

Haplogroup R is divided into two branches R1 and R2 (which is mainly found in the Indian Subcontinent).

Haplogroup R / R1 originated in North Asia just before the Last Glacial Maximum (26,500-19,000 years before present). This haplogroup has been identified in the 24,000 year-old remains of the so-called "Mal'ta boy" from the Altai region, in south-central Siberia (Raghavan et al. 2013). This individual belonged to a tribe of mammoth hunters that may have roamed across Siberia and parts of Europe during the Paleolithic.
