The first phylogenetic chart to unify nomenclature was
published in 2002 by the
Y Chromosome Consortium (YCC). The 2003 Y-DNA phylogenetic chart
appeared in Mark A. Jobling and Chris Tyler-Smith,
The Human Y Chromosome: An Evolutionary Marker Comes of Age Nature Reviews|Genetics, Figure 5.
In 2005 Family Tree DNA created the
2005 Y-Chromosome Phylogenetic Tree. An ISOGG group was formed in November 2005 to create a web-based document
using Richard Kenyon's style of an indented list which could be
updated to keep pace with the rapid developments in the field.
Current ISOGG members who work with the tree are: Coordinator: Katherine Borges. Tree maintenance: Ray Banks. Design team: Tanmoy Bhattacharya, Katherine Hope Borges, Alice Fairhurst, Michael Hebert, Tom Hutchison, Richard Kenyon, Doug McDonald. Content experts: Abdulaziz Ali, Whit Athey, Ray Banks, Thomas Bean, Nigel Bond, Aaron R. Brown, David Dowell, Neal Downing, Alice Fairhurst, Charles Fueston, Phil Goff, Vladimir Gurianov, Gareth Henson, Greg Hockings, Robert Hughes, Tim Janzen, Frances James, Mark Jost, James Kane, Kathleen Kerwin, Atanas Kumbarov, Owen Lu, Sergey Malayshev, Zdenko Markovic, Victar Mas, Hans De Beule, Eugene Matyushonok, Bob May, Lawrence Mayka, Christopher McCown, Charles Moore, Stephen Parrish, Marja Pirttivaara, Bonnie Schrack, John Sloan, David Stedman, Steve Trangsrud, Leonard Trujillo, Ann Turner, Vladimir Volkov, Michael W. Walsh, Raymond Wing, Michael McNally. Content experts liaison with experts from various reliable sources to determine what information is needed to amend the tree.
The Y Haplogroup classification of the male Y-chromosome is currently used to estimate the population group of the paternal line. The haplogroups are identified by the letters, A through T. Haplogroups are subdivided into one or more levels, called subclades, and thus forming a tree. The Y-chromosome haplogroup is determined by performing a sequence of SNP tests.
Each line lists a haplogroup or subclade in boldface, then one or more SNPs follow on the same line. For a sample to belong to a particular subclade, it must test positive for any one of the SNPs appearing on the line, providing positive results were obtained for its haplogroup and any intervening subclades.
